On today’s show, after the Minnesota Timberwolves knocked of the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday night, we discuss what has driven the Wolves to be the number one offense in the NBA over the past three weeks. We focus on what changed during that stretch of COVID protocol games and how D’Angelo Russell has been the face of this latest team-wide offensive boomlet. Topics today include:

  • No. 1 offense in NBA since January 3rd
  • How DLo’s play has been representative of the offensive burst — shooting, passing, playing with pace
  • Being able to have a dominant offensive performance on a slow night for Karl-Anthony Towns
  • How a team meeting helped lock the Wolves roster into specific roles player-by-player
  • Why it’s important that the defense, which has dipped lately, rejoins the party for the Wolves’ upcoming road trip
