It's official

From Kent Youngblood/Star Tribune:
The Timberwolves are now officially out of the Western Conference playoff race. The reason? Golden State's victory over Utah late Monday pushed the Warriors' percentage points ahead of the L.A. Clippers for the conference's eighth and final playoff spot. And that mathematically eliminated Minnesota from postseason contention. Golden State has 38 victories this season, while the best record the Wolves could finish with is 37-45.

Now, fans can focus on whether the Wolves will keep their No. 1 draft choice...
