If only Damien Wilkins hadn't hit that buzzer beater in Minnesota back on October 28. Then, it would the Wolves who'd be tempting fate with an 0-13 start. John Hollinger of ESPN and John Schuhmann of NBA.com think the Wolves are a worse team in this week's power rankings. ESPN's Marc Stein, SI's Chris Mannix and USA Today's Chris Colston go with conventional wisdom: a 1-12 team is better than one 0-13.
