The Minnesota Timberwolves have been struggling to stay afloat for many NBA seasons now. Outside of that one year with Jimmy Butler, their fans have been deprived of playoff basketball. However, this year that might change for the better.
The trio of Karl-Anthony Towns, D’Angelo Russell, and Anthony Edwards has been solid, but not the main reason behind their success. Instead, it can be argued that their improved defense is the biggest reason behind their major jump this season.
Jarred Vanderbilt has been a revelation for them. His defense, hustle, and grit have elevated Minnesota’s defense to a whole new level. Their big three has been great, too, but Vanderbilt and Patrick Beverley have led the charge in terms of change.
Meanwhile, the Atlanta Hawks have been struggling to live up to expectations this season. Trae Young looks phenomenal, but most of the pieces around him are struggling.
