Boy howdy, but are the Timberwolves up and down. They won four in a row, then lost to Orlando; they got slaughtered by the Heat, then beat the Thunder, in the span of three days. There are no sure things. Will Nik Pekovic make his layups? Will Kevin Love get his shots to fall? Will Good J.J. Barea show up, or will we see Bad J.J.? Will Andrei Kirilenko pull the team out of the fire yet again? Will Dante Cunningham and Greg Stiemsma and Derrick Williams make a meaningful contribution, or will they show up and flounder and end up -18 for the night?
All of these things are up in the air on a nightly basis, which is why the team is so up and down – the subject of my week seven review at SB Nation Minnesota.
