Will Timberwolves defense be good enough?
 
The jury’s out after a preseason in which Adelman saw improvement but not enough. The Wolves have assembled a roster of offensive-minded players for an offensive-minded coach but must defend at least well enough so their scoring can win games.

In preseason, they were susceptible to their same old issues: They allowed opposing point guards to penetrate the defense with dribble drives and gave up too many baskets in transition.

“We’re just not as consistent and have a sustained effort there as we need to have,” Adelman said. “That was a concern from the start and still is.”

our defense does stink. We just have to figure it out so that we can play at both ends of the floor. Our offense is there just not the defense.

It's not like we have completely incapable players. I think our defense will improve as the seasons goes by. Our offense is making up for it right now though. We make opposing teams defense look like shit with the ridiculous amount of fast breaks.

Its a mindset that we do not have yet. But with this recent trade, we are making moves to get defensive minded.
