The Minnesota Timberwolves’ Surprising Playoff Run: Heading to Western Conference Finals

We can’t stop them anymore. Among the sensations of this 2023-24 regular season in the NBA (3rd in the Western Conference), the Minnesota Timberwolves confirm in the playoffs with a qualification for the Western Conference finals. After mastering the Phoenix Suns in the previous round, Rudy Gobert and his teammates managed to reverse a poorly started series against the Denver Nuggets, reigning champions.

Led three wins to two, the Minneapolis team won the last two meetings of the series, including the decisive match in Colorado last night (90-98). A meeting during which the best defender of the season (13 points, 9 rebounds and 2 blocks) and his teammates showed their defensive solidity to erase a 20-point deficit, despite the new card from MVP Nikola Jokic (34 points, 19 rebounds). In the next round, they will benefit from home advantage and will have to defeat the Dallas Mavericks of the Luka Doncic – Kyrie Irving duo to secure their place in the NBA finals.
