It is no secret that the Minnesota Timberwolves‘ defense has been one of the league’s worst throughout recent memory.
Currently, the Timberwolves own a 115.2 defensive rating for the season, No. 27 in the league. While the Wolves boast offensive talents such as Karl-Anthony Towns and D’Angelo Russell, the roster is mostly devoid of defensive talent.
Most notably, the Timberwolves are getting thrown around in the paint like ragdolls, boasting a 47.8 percent rebounding rate(No. 26) and lacking the true rim protector that this team desperately needs.
