Paynt Points: The .500 Minnesota Timberwolves

Jake and Kyle discuss the middling Wolves, why that’s not a bad thing, and how to make it better.

NBA: Golden State Warriors at Minnesota Timberwolves Bruce Kluckhohn-USA TODAY Sports

The Minnesota Timberwolves are at, just under, kind of around, always near .500 this season. That’s not the highest bar to clear, but it’s one they haven’t often caught sight of. With plenty of growing room remaining, the Wolves should be feeling good about their season thus far.

In this edition of Paynt Points, host Jake Paynting is joined by Canis Hoopus Editor-in-Chief Kyle Theige to dissect what has got the Wolves to this position, why it matters, and how to get even higher in the Western Conference. They also dive into the philosophy of making a trade and why Sachin Gupta is under pressure.
