There is much to work to be done for a team that fully expects to make the playoffs for the first time since it reached the 2004 conference finals around that season's MVP, Kevin Garnett, who was 27 at the time. The Wolves rank 30th in defensive field-goal percentage, they don't get back in transition and they lack a rim protector. New president Flip Saunders has already traded for defensive help in Luc Mbah a Moute, and more talent could follow. But reinforcements weren't the focus for Love as he sat numbly with his feet in a bucket of ice late Monday. Next up was a home game against the West-leading Trail Blazers, with more workouts in between.
