Despite being out of the playoff race, the Minnesota Timberwolves are still playing very hard to win every game left. The Wolves extended their winning streak to four games last night, as veteran point guard Ricky Rubio went for 26-6-6. Rubio said after his big night that the club is showing tremendous character by staying focused on winning down the stretch.

“At the end of the day, we’re out of the playoffs and we could call it a season, but we want it. That shows a lot of character.”
