It has been a disappointing season for the Minnesota Timberwolves as they enter play with a mark of 24-27 and sit as the 11th seed in the Western conference. The Minnesota Timberwolves currently holds the longest post season drought in the NBA. Minnesota last made the playoffs in the 2004 season and if they miss the playoff this year it will be a full decade of lottery appearances for this franchise. It is easier to make the playoffs in the NBA that most major sports as 16 of the 30 teams make the post season. This Minnesota team has not been very efficient. They shoot 43.6% from the floor ranking 24th in the NBA. They are the worst defensive team in the NBA by allowing nearly 47% shooting to their opponents. They must face Dwight and the Rockets missing impact players on the court on Monday. Shooting guard Kevin Martin has been listed as out with a broken thumb. Center Nikola Pekovic has an ankle problem and has to return date listed on the injury report. Pekovic injury is impactful because he was assigned to Dwight Howard. This will open things up offensively for Houston in this game if Howard can get easy position down low and gets double teams. Dwight can kick it out tonight to open perimeter shooters because of the weakness down low for Minnesota. Making matters worse is scorer Kevin Love is listed as questionable with a quad injury.
