Another Fourth Quarter Collapse
The Toronto Raptors trailed the Minnesota Timberwolves by a score of 79-73 at the start of the fourth quarter, and the Minnesota Timberwolves increased their lead to 83-74 on Rashad McCants' basket with 10:39 remaining in the quarter. It was all down hill for the Minnesota Timberwolves from there. Toronto outscored Minnesota 24-6 to take control of the game. Jose Calderon's basket gave the Raptors the lead for good with 7:48 left at 86-85. Thank god for the Minnesota Timberwolves ability for fourth quarter meltdowns. Without those, the Minnesota Timberwolves would have definitely not ended the season with one of the ten worst records and that would have meant bye bye to their first round draft pick. I hope that the Timberwolves continue to choke in the fourth quarter causing them to lose the rest of their games.
