The Timberwolves secured their spot in the Conference Finals by winning Game 7. Green highlighted Minnesota’s teamwork as a key factor in their success.

“What’s beautiful about what Minnesota is doing is that it’s the ultimate team thing… As of right now, I got Minnesota [beating Dallas],” Green said on The Draymond Green Show.

The Timberwolves initially took a 2-0 lead against the defending champions. However, the Nuggets responded with three straight wins, pushing Minnesota to the brink of elimination. Minnesota’s resilience showed in Game 6 when they routed Denver by 45 points.

This victory forced a decisive Game 7 in Ball Arena. The Timberwolves closed out the series in Denver, advancing to the Conference Finals.
