MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Suddenly, the Minnesota Timberwolves are the talk of the town. That kind of talk comes only from winning.
It’s been fun for fans to watch a 7-3 start to the team’s season.
“They’re playing for each other,” head coach Tom Thibodeau said. “The more they play together, the more comfortable they get.”
This week, they get to find out more about their body of work, starting tomorrow night at Golden State.
“I think the biggest thing is consistency. Guys are happy and … defense, that’s the biggest thing that’s changed from last year,” guard Shabazz Muhammad said.
What the Wolves have done so far this season is impressive, but what the Warriors have done for three years is overwhelming. What’s different this year is they expect to compete.
“You just have to trust your principles,” guard Jamal Crawford said. “They can come at you in flurries, they can go on a 15-0 run, they can go on 17-2 runs.”
