TFD: Wolves have a better chance of making playoffs than Wild, stats say

Posted by: Michael Rand under Wild coaching, Wolves news Updated: January 23, 2014 - 4:46 PM

 

The Wolves are not in a playoff position in the NBA right now. The Wild, however, is.

 

But if you had to bet on one of the two to make it, you would be better off betting on the Wolves -- at least according to some projections.

The Hollinger Power Rankings at ESPN.com project the Wolves will finish with 46 victories -- finishing with a 26-15 record in the back half of the season -- and says they have a better than 60 percent chance of making the playoffs.

The Wild, according to Sports Club Stats, have just a 46.5 percent chance of making the postseason even though they are currently in the No. 8 spot in the West.

Do with that information what you will.
