Minnesota Timberwolves beat Denver Nuggets to claim last play-off spot

Minnesota Timberwolves beat Denver Nuggets to claim last play-off spot

I say we throw out all the trends on the Nuggets playing well in Minnesota.

"I don't want to have that feeling next year", Murray said.

The Denver Nuggets and Minnesota Timberwolves are, as we speak, sporting 46-35 records with one game to go in the season.

When holding opponents under 100 points, Denver is 15-2 and Minnesota is 19-4.

"I'm not going to check my phone". But the Timberwolves all-star tandem of Karl-Anthony Towns (26 points, 14 rebounds) and Butler (31 points, five rebounds, five assists) were too much to handle.

But an off-day meeting between Malone and his players following the Raptors game reaffirmed belief they could still make a postseason push, sparking a season-best six-game winning streak - against teams with records north of.500 - to keep the Nuggets in contention on the final day.

"We shouldn't have even been in that position at all", said Harris, who scored 10 points in 20 minutes in his second game back from his knee injury.

The Nuggets took an early lead, but the Wolves rallied and led the match until late in the fourth quarter. He shot 78.6% from the field, making 11 of his 14 attempts (2/3 from the line). Andrew Wiggins made the two most high-pressure free throws he's shot as a pro.

The Wolves, though, used a 20-4 run to lighten the mood a little in the arena. In the loss, Towns had a double-double with 26 points and 13 rebounds.

"We were just playing soft". "So it's about time we do something". If you didn't do the math: 46+35 = 81 games. He left for the locker room without returning to the bench.

Gibson, Butler ... something doesn't feel right. Most tickets start at just under $100.

Jodie Meeks led Washington with 18 points. It's that the Timberwolves, as now constituted, don't look like a team ready to get better without substantive tinkering. Mike Conley, Tyreke Evans and Chandler Parsons have missed a combined 143 games. Capela leads in rebounds with 10.8 while Harden tops in assists with 8.8 per game. The last time they passed the first round was 2009, one of the franchise's three trips to the Western Conference finals since joining the National Basketball Association.

The Timberwolves are so good at home that I just don't see them losing this game.

They beat the Nuggets 112-106 thanks in large part to veteran Taj Gibson, whose heroic overtime defense on Nuggets big man Nikola Jokic was the difference. The team needs work on defensive rebounds per game (#27), blocks per game (#24) and three point percentage (#21).

KAT showed just how passionate the Timberwolves were about winning this game and advancing to the postseason with a powerful move during the second quarter of the game which resulted in a score. Aldrich had an assist in the final minute. The Wolves, for example, are in eighth place and the Nuggets ninth, because of the Wolves' edge in their season series.

In a winner-take-all encounter for the last remaining post-season spot in the Western Conference, it was the Timberwolves who came out on top.
