If only the Wolves had Ricky Rubio. They need a good distributor desperately. They're bottom-10 in assists and scoring. Good thing they have Kevin Love, or they'd be toast.

Minnesota has done great defensively, and if it weren't for a dreadful week of Thanksgiving that saw them lose five straight, the T-Wolves would be much higher. Unfortunately for them, they really haven't seemed to recover.

Rubio will hopefully return in the next two weeks. We'll see how much that changes Minnesota's fortunes.
