The Wolves host New Orleans Monday night, trying to start the season 3-0.

Following Monday’s game, the Wolves’ No. 1 ranked defense will get much tougher tests. The Wolves will face Milwaukee, Denver and the Clippers twice, all teams that ranked among the best offenses in the league last year.

And yes, any reference to stats through just two of 82 games is done tongue-in-cheek.
