After a positive 16-17 start for the much-improved Minnesota Timberwolves, the only negative about the season so far would be the 0-3 start in the Northwest Division.
This division is commonly considered one of the toughest in the NBA, with every team having a chance to be in the playoffs. There is not one team that is more than two games out of the eighth seed in the conference. This is the only division in basketball that can say that.
If the Wolves want to have any chance of competing for a playoff spot, they will need to step it up. Minnesota still has 10 games against division foes remaining, so they will have plenty of chances to prove their worth within the division.
This slideshow will show how the T-wolves stack up against the competitive Northwest Division.
