Description: In the close quarters that pass for the lower half of the Northwest Division, a 1-3 week is enough to banish you to the basement. That's exactly what happened to the Minnesota Timberwolves last week, who dropped to four games under .500 in the process. And their sole win came against the Charlotte Bobcats, which hardly counts. At least Kevin Love continues to post MVP numbers, including 40 and 19 against those same Bobcats. A light three-game week next week should help them out a bit. —Russ Bengtson
