The Minnesota Timberwolves finished last week with three solid wins compared to just one loss, snapping a four-game losing streak in the process. Their record only improved to an even .500 on the season, however, meaning this week's NBA power rankings might not reflect just how impressive they've been as of late.
SB Nation's Tom Ziller gave them a solid grade this week, however, as he ranks Kevin Love, Ricky Rubio, Nikola Pekovic and the rest of the Wolves a solid 18 out of the 30 teams in the Association.
|18.||Minnesota Timberwolves||16-16||W: CHA, HOU, PHI; L: ORL||Canis Hoopus|
|Fact: 'Wicky Wuuuubio Kid' is not an anomaly, that's actually how all Wolves fans talk when watching Rubio play.|
Does anyone else feel slighted about that ranking? Especially since Ziller refers to our new best friend Chase as simply Wicky Wuuuubio Kid instead of one of the great Timberwolves fans of his generation without even mentioning Chase's affinity for Big Pek!?
