Overall offensive execution

We know that the Timberwolves are one of the most unique teams in the NBA in multiple facets. They are among the only teams to employ a traditional two-big lineup, and two of their three guys that can play center are extremely skilled and versatile players who put the ball on the deck and light it up from beyond the arc.

Minnesota is also one of the few teams that is both a top-level contender and has consistent struggles on offense. In a league dominated by scoring power and variety, the Wolves have relied on their defense all season long to get them to the top of the standings.

Ranking just 16th in the association for team offensive efficiency, the Timberwolves have had their fair share of struggles at that end of the floor. What is encouraging is that defense matters most in the playoffs, and Minnesota should gain a clear edge in two more weeks.

But at the same time, they cannot suffer from prolonged scoring droughts in the playoffs without risking their season coming to an end. The Wolves will need to sharpen things up and work on scoring just a bit more efficiently leading up to the start of the postseason.
