The Minnesota Timberwolves swept Kevin Durant and the Phoenix Suns in the opening round of the playoffs, earning their spot in the second round and proving to critics that they are the real deal.

Speaking on his show, via The Volume, Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green had major praise for the Timberwolves.

“Timberwolves are lookin’ like the second-best team in the West. Arguably the first-best,” Green said, stating they look “more complete” than the reigning champion Denver Nuggets.

Minnesota’s win over Phoenix was very impressive, especially because it was a sweep.

All year long, people have wondered if the Timberwolves could convert their terrific regular season into a strong postseason.

After the first round, many fans are convinced they can.

From Anthony Edwards to Naz Reid to Rudy Gobert, Karl-Anthony Towns, Jaden McDaniels, and others, the Timberwolves are a deep team with a robust roster.

Speaking of which, Green said that Denver lacks a powerful bench, which could hurt them in the next round.

Now the Timberwolves are set to play against the Nuggets in the days ahead.

They will obviously be a much tougher opponent than the Suns.

If the Timberwolves can defeat the reigning champions, they will not only become favorites to win the West but possibly the Finals too.

They have made a definitive statement with their first-round triumph over the Suns but now things are going to get even harder and more intense for the team.

Minnesota has proven a lot this year, to Green and many others, but they may not be done impressing the NBA world.
