Minnesota Timberwolves Lose Heartbreaker to Oklahoma City Thunder
The Minnesota Timberwolves lost a nailbiter to the Oklahoma City Thunder 118-117 in overtime. It was another one of those close games that the team couldn't close out and get the victory. Kevin Durant had a career night - 47 points and 18 rebounds. Kevin Love had another spectacular night, with 31 points and 21 rebounds. Michael Beasley had 30 points, 9 rebounds, and 7 assists in a near triple double. The Timberwolves missed a chance with a tie game on the line at the end of regulation. Kevin Love's hook shot just rimmed in and out. In overtime, Corey Brewer's missed free throw resulted in a Luke Ridnour 3 point attempt. He missed and the game was over.
