I thought Minnesota's defensive performance last night against OKC was worth noting as the season progresses. A team that can play defense like this typically lands a spot in the playoffs.
They had 14 steals, forced 21 turnovers and held the Thunder to 35% shooting.
If they can stay healthy they are taking one spot there in the Playoffs.
Must be nice to have a reliable 25-14 guy in the paint who can step out and hit fall away threes any time he wants.
Love's PER right now is at 34.97, which is above MVP level. I'm sure it'll come down, but if it goes in half it's still above league average.
