The Minnesota Timberwolves started the playoffs in dominant fashion, going up 2-0 on the Denver Nuggets, the reigning champions.

While it looked like they would steamroll the Nuggets throughout the series, the Nuggets responded accordingly, winning the next three games.

The Timberwolves showed some fight in their losses but were ultimately unable to get the job done.

After seeing the Timberwolves’ performance in Game 5, particularly after watching Rudy Gobert play, Draymond Green spoke to the NBA On TNT crew, providing his take on the state of the team.

“You need to get a stop.  It ain’t we,” Green said about Gobert.

Green believes that Gobert and the rest of his teammates have given up in a sense, a devastating thing to hear for Timberwolves fans.

This team has struggled to gain traction in the playoffs for many years, and this year seemed like an opportunity for them to shift the tides.

While the series isn’t over, as Green mentions, the Timberwolves have seemingly lost their fight to stay in it.

However, they still have Anthony Edwards on their team, who doesn’t seem to go down without a fight.

Edwards continues to be one of the best young players in the NBA, a bright spot for this Timberwolves team every night.

Veterans like Gobert and Karl Anthony-Towns might see the writing on the wall, but Edwards is determined to fight and give it his all.

Will the Timberwolves find a way to pull out a series win, despite Green’s comments and analysis of this team?
