NEW YORK: The Knicks moved on from 10-time All-Star Carmelo Anthony and team president Phil Jackson, so there should be less drama this season. But there may not be any more wins, as new president Steve Mills and general manager Scott Perry have made it clear they're building around youth. New York gave former first-round pick Tim Hardaway a $71 million deal to return after having traded him to Atlanta two years ago. If he proves to not be worth it, there aren't many other places from which the Knicks can find offense after trading Anthony and letting Derrick Rose leave.
MINNESOTA: It's playoffs or bust for Minnesota this season, which sounds crazy for a team that has not made the postseason since 2004. The West is stacked, but head coach Tom Thibodeau made the moves he did with the express purpose of ending the longest active playoff drought in the league. Jimmy Butler was brought in from the Bulls via trade to speed up to the team's development. He is the prototype for a Thibodeau player'intense, demanding and defensive-minded. His ability to make shots late in games should also help a team that struggled mightily to close out opponents last season, and his familiarity with Thibodeau should help the younger players on the team absorb more of the coach's teachings. If the second unit can prevent huge drop-offs from what is expected to be a formidable starting five, the Wolves should finally be able to remind their long-suffering fans that the season does not end in mid-April.
Timberwolves look to stay defensive vs. Knicks

MINNEAPOLIS -- After winning their third straight game, the Minnesota Timberwolves are 11 games above .500 for the first time in a long time.

Minnesota (27-16) enters Friday's game with the fourth-best record in the Western Conference, and Timberwolves fans are taking note. Wednesday's win over Oklahoma City was a sellout, Minnesota's fifth in a row at Target Center.

Now the Wolves are hoping for another packed building Friday -- but, more importantly, another win.

If Minnesota's defense keeps playing the way it has as of late, another win could be in the cards as the Wolves host the New York Knicks.

It's now been seven straight games that Tom Thibodeau's team has held opponents under 100 points and it has helped the Wolves get 11 games over .500 for the first time since the end of the 2003-04 season.

The Knicks are averaging 103.6 points per game, which ranks in the bottom half of the NBA.

"Now we're taking pride in our defense," Minnesota's Jimmy Butler told the Minneapolis Star Tribune. "We're taking it personal with matchups. I like to see that."

While the Wolves have reeled off three straight wins, the Knicks have lost four of their last five games prior to Friday's contest. New York's most recent loss was a tough 122-119 double-overtime defeat against Chicago in which Bulls rookie Lauri Markkanen scored 33 points and hit eight 3-pointers.

"Just another tough loss. It's not a lot to say really," Knicks star Kristaps Porzingis told the New York Daily News. "We just got to keep going and learning."

New York will have a trio of scorers on Minnesota's roster to try and stop on Friday as Butler, Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins all pose a scoring threat.

Just as importantly, though, is the commitment to defense Minnesota's players have given. While the defense might not have been up to Thibodeau's standards early in the year, it has tightened up. That's resulted in more wins -- and a bit more fun up and down the Timberwolves' roster.

"The young guys are smiling every day," Wolves forward Taj Gibson told the Star Tribune. "They know they're in a good space and the hard work is coming around, but it all comes from defense and everybody understands that."

In Wednesday's game to the Bulls, New York guard Jarrett Jack tallied a triple-double of 16 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists. Jack's second career triple-double, though, to help the Knicks put together two straight wins.

"A triple-double is cool, but we lost," Jack told the Daily News. "That's just the way I look at things. I look at things in terms of wins and losses."

The Knicks (19-22) continue to be led on offense by Porzingis but will need role players like Jack to continue to step up. That includes Friday's tilt with Minnesota, which will see the return of former Timberwolves forward Michael Beasley. The journeyman Beasley is averaging 12.4 points per game as one of five Knicks players averaging in double-figures.

Minnesota, meanwhile, continues to receive balanced scoring. The Timberwolves got point guard Jeff Teague back on Wednesday against the Thunder, giving Thibodeau's roster even more depth as the second half the season continues.
