At the beginning of the season the Minnesota Timberwolves were coming of a playoff appearance for the first time since 2004. But the Jimmy Butler fiasco ruined the 2018-19 campaign before it even started. Butler is gone and so to is head coach Tom Thibodeau. Their clash of priorities and personalities proved to be a perpetual setback for NBA games betting odds. As a result, there will be no playoffs for the T-Wolves this spring. By contrast the playoff bound Denver Nuggets have enjoyed a franchise renaissance. Mike Malone is a potential NBA coach of the year candidate.
