The last time the Minnesota Timberwolves finished the season above .500 was the 2004-05 season. Since then, Wolves fans have seen their fair share of rebuilding attempts fail.
Now the Ricky Rubio, Kevin Love and Rick Adelman-led Timberwolves have given something for fans to look forward to.
With a 15-16 record and a young, improving nucleus, many people view the Wolves as a team on the rise. But, only being 31 games deep into the season, there are still many unanswered questions for the rest of the season.
Can the Wolves prove they are for real and continue their progression as a threat in the Western Conference?
Will someone step up to play the shooting guard position or will that position have to be filled from the outside?
I will answer these questions and more in my five bold predictions of the Wolves' second half of the season.
