Pelicans 122, Wolves 117: A Disaster Week

Another depressing loss for the Wolves on the road. An absolutely disastrous week ended appropriately with a fourth loss in seven days for the Wolves, this one in New Orleans where the Pelicans handed them a 122-117 loss.

They proceeded to lose to an injured and tired Nuggets, a barely NBA quality Grizzlies, a thoroughly mediocre Magic, and a Pelicans team riven by the Anthony Davis situation. All that sandwiching a trade deadline at which they were unable to...

How does the Western Conference stack up post-trade deadline?

Most of the big moves were out East, but teams in the West made some crucial trades as well. Despite the flurry of movement in the Eastern Conference, most of the best teams in the West stood pat this trade deadline. There was no huge Anthony Davis trade, no superstar team-ups, and not much to change about the conference’s postseason outlook. The Warriors, Nuggets, and Thunder, the three best teams in the conference, didn’t make a single trade. The Jazz and Spurs also opted not to make any changes. These teams are all playoff locks, and seem content with their rosters as is. With the...
