This statistic shows why the Timberwolves won’t dance Nuggets in the Playoff rankings

The Minnesota Timberwolves lost to the Dallas Mavericks, and it could be a very costly loss. Dallas was impressively close to the Timberwolves for the West’s 5th seed. However, now Minnesota is ranked 7th seed and is at a serious disadvantage when it is eliminated from the play-in round.

Minnesota has nine games left in the regular season, and it has some of the toughest nine games anyone in the league has — literally. The Timberwolves have the toughest schedule remaining, and that’s the main reason they’re in the play-in.

Just like they did, I wasn’t sold to the Timberwolves. Their last 10 wins were against the Portland Trail Blazers twice, the Oklahoma City Thunder twice, the San Antonio Spurs and the Milwaukee Bucks without Giannis Antetokounmpo. That’s six of their last 10 wins that don’t fit into the “quality win” category.

I still have a lot of questions about whether Minnesota will really veer off course and become a legit playoff team.

Meanwhile, Denver has the 18th easiest schedule and is likely the MVP of the tournament with Nikola Jokic on their side. These two teams have one more game to go, which should give a huge boost to whoever comes out on top.

Currently, The Nuggets are in the middle of a mid-phase, which will take place on 6-5 in March. However, they have shown the ability to continue and I think a record is on the way with the relaxed schedule.

Minnesota is 21-20 against teams with a winning record this year. The Wolves will have to raise that number significantly to make it through to the knockouts, and I have no confidence that they will be up against the top teams.

It’s been a good season for the Minnesota fans, but calm your expectations in the long run.
