If there is anyone who is running away with the NBA's Coach of the Year Award yet, it should be Chris Finch, the head coach of the Minnesota Timberwolves. He has completely turned around the franchise, including the way the masses view them.

At least for this season, the Timberwolves are no longer looked at as a laughing stock or a team that paid way too much for Rudy Gobert via trade, even though now Gobert is having historic nights. They have been talked about as one of the worst organizations in the league because of the trade not working out in the past, and now everything is coming together.

Not only has Chris Finch done all of that, but he has also found a way for the three stars to coexist with one another while also still developing the young guys like Anthony Edwards, Jaden McDaniels, and, of course, the recently drafted guys. Finch has managed to do all that while also having the best record in the NBA, sitting at the top of the Western Conference, and looking like a team that could really compete in the playoffs.

And while they aren't still looked at as the best team in the NBA, and rightfully so because the sample size still isn't huge, there is a pretty crazy stat that only further proves they are indeed the best team in the league.

According to Alan Horton of Wolves Radio, the Minnesota Timberwolves are the only team in the NBA to have not lost more than one game in a row.

That shows not only that they are indeed the best team in the league but also that Chris Finch is great at making adjustments from game to game. This team doesn't ever let one loss carry over into the next game, and that says something about the way they lay and who they are as a team. It also says a lot about Chris Finch.
