Jimmy Butler on West Playoff Race Seeds 3-10: 'Gotta Win or We'll be Talking to You at the End of the Season'

February 22, 2018 04:48 PM

The Timberwolves were back on the practice court after a six day All-Star break, and KSTP Sports was there. We talked with coach Tom Thibodeau, guard Jimmy Butler, guard Jamal Crawford, and center Karl-Anthony Towns.

The Wolves are 36-25, good for 4th place in the West. But there's not much separation between the 3-seed Spurs and 10-seed Jazz. Only the top eight qualify for the postseason.

The Wolves begin their final 21-games stretch run Friday in Houston, then Zach LaVine makes his return to Target Center Saturday with Chicago. The Rockets have the best record in the NBA at 44-13.

One side-note from practice: the Wolves reassigned rookie Justin Patton to Iowa, their G-League affiliate.
