On December 4th, Beijing time, there is no game in the NBA today, and then we can talk about the performance of some teams in the league in the past period of time, through this season, a team wants to achieve results, they no longer need a big core with the ball as before, but need a better interior pillar, now the top four in the East, it can be said that they all have an All-Star level inside, and the top four in the West in addition to the Thunder also have excellent inside.

After 15 years of small-ball era, at the beginning of 22 years, the league seems to be returning to the era of big man, in fact, this is understandable, after all, basketball is a long-term sport, Curry relied on the strongest projection talent in history to bring the league into the small-ball era, although many centers were eliminated, but some centers gradually adapted to this era and then played dominant, like Jokic and Embiid, who monopolized the MVP trophy in the past three years.

And now the league seems to have some trend of wanting to return to the traditional basketball era, now there are more and more twin tower teams in the league, the Bucks have always been a twin tower team, which also allowed them to win the championship in 21, the Cavaliers are also a twin tower team, but their core is too young, but last season they still achieved the fourth record in the East, and last season the Timberwolves formed their twin towers, and last season they were only eighth in the West.

So they have also been questioned a lot, and after the start of this season, the Timberwolves proved how wise their approach is, since the start of the season, the Timberwolves are now tied for first place in the league with the Celtics with 15 wins and 4 losses, and the Green Army can play the current record It is estimated that everyone can understand, after all, they have four All-Stars between the games, and the Timberwolves can achieve such good results, relying more on their twin towers, or three towers.

Although the team's No. 1 offensive core is Edwards, the Timberwolves have been able to play such a good result this season, relying more on defense, their defensive efficiency so far this season is 106.7, the league's first, and the average points conceded per game is also the second lowest in the league, second only to the Knicks. The interior twin towers of Towns and Gobert provide the team with the ultimate rim protection, and it is worth mentioning that the defensive efficiency list of players so far this season is Gobert at 102.6 and Towns is second with 104.6, followed by Mitchell Robinson and Bushy Eyebrows.

The two best defensive efficiency in the league are in the Timberwolves, Gobert was scolded as a garbage contract last season, and now he has proven himself after adapting to the team system, and now it looks like the Timberwolves got him 10-for-1 at the time. Gobert averaged 13.3 points, 11.6 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 2.4 blocks per game this season, ranking first in the league in blocks per game and shooting 63% from the field.

His ability to adapt to the team's system is also inseparable from Conley, whose arrival has given Gobert more opportunities to eat cake and score, which also makes Gobert willing to give more on the defensive end. Not only have Towns been better defensively this season, but his offense has been fantastic, and last season due to his injury, many fans questioned that he and Gobert were incompatible, and now Towns has proven that they can be compatible.

Towns is averaging 22.2 points, 9 rebounds, 3.1 assists, 0.9 steals and 0.7 blocks per game this season, shooting 50.3% from the field, 41.8% from three-point range, and 2.2 three-pointers per game. Downs relied on tough defense and excellent killing to help the team reach the playoffs in '22, and his ability is undoubted, it can be said that he is a top five center in the league, but Downs is also too reckless at times, and often has low-level fouls.

They also have an excellent interior line on the bench, he is Naz Reid, Reid has good space ability, he can also play fast break and eat cake, very good blue-collar interior line, if he is not good enough, the Timberwolves would not have the twin towers at the beginning, and he was renewed, Reed can average 12.6 points and 4 rebounds per game this season, shooting 51.4% from the field and 40% from three-point range.

The three towers can average 48.1 points and 24.6 rebounds per game, which is very good, especially Towns and Gobert, who prop up the team's defense, and the Timberwolves have excellent playmakers like Conley and Lee Kyle to feed them, plus Edwards' excellent individual killing ability, which also gives the Timberwolves a stable output on the offensive end, and the Timberwolves have a chance to maintain the top three in the division this season until the end of the season.

They have won 14 of their last 16 games, and the team has won both games in Edwards' absence, this team already has good chemistry, and the main thing is that they have found confidence, although many fans are still not optimistic that they can play well in the playoffs, but who can say for sure that they will not be in the playoffs?
