The Wolves still have about a 3% chance of making the playoffs. So don't give up just yet. And if you have given up on our playoff chances.. I guess I don't blame you! If a miracle doesn't happen and we don't make the playoffs, and the curse continues and Phoenix gets our 1st round draft pick because we finished too well.. at least we can say the Wolves have improved. At this point in the season (March 22), the Wolves have already surpassed their win total for last season. We've improved very slowly in the win column over the past 5 years since Kurt Rambis led us to an awful 15-67 in the 2009-2010 season. And the Wolves are already guaranteed to finish with the best record they've had since Flip Saunders was coach. Weird how he's back this year as a GM and that happens.. I think Adelman is a legendary coach, and props to him for helping improve the Timberwolves from terrible to mediocre. I think we all feel this is Adelman's last year, and also all have a feeling Saunders may be our coach again next year.. where I think he's better off instead of GM. With all that said, I hope/think next season is finally the year we get back to the playoffs, with a roster move or 2 and more play from Dieng/Muhammad. Anyways back to the point of this - We still have a chance to make the playoffs. Here's the remaining schedule and my hopeful predictions.. keyword:hopeful.. which still isn't enough to get us in.
