For the first time in two decades – and the second time in franchise history – the Minnesota Timberwolves are back in the Western Conference Finals.

They have the best defense in the game and they have proven that they will not back down from any challenge, regardless of the situation, the deficit or the opposition.

This is why former player Antonio Daniels took his hat off to them.

Speaking on SiriusXM NBA Radio, the veteran spoke about the Timberwolves and how they were able to face adversity, roll with the punches and fight back not only in Game 7 but also in the game 6.

According to Daniels, this is precisely why you never want to go to a Game 7, because literally anything can happen, and the Denver Nuggets never really knew what hit them in the second half of that game.

The Minnesota Timberwolves are a resilient team that has shown they can win games in a variety of ways, but one thing is for sure: they will intimidate you on the defensive end of the court.

While Rudy Gobert is an elite rim protector and the reigning Defensive Player of the Year, Jaden McDaniels has become one of the best defensive players in the game.

His matchup with Luka Doncic is going to be great to watch, and the Timberwolves have made it fun to watch defense again, and that’s huge in an era where teams don’t even bother trying on that side of the ball anymore. ground.
