3. 80 games down

The Wolves wrap up the season with two more games next week. They host the Rockets, who are competing for the eighth seed in the Western Conference, on Monday, and they close the 2015-16 campaign at Target Center Wednesday against the New Orleans Hornets.

That season finale against New Orleans could mean something with only two wins separating the Wolves and Hornets from the fifth-worst record in the NBA.
