NBA Recap: OKC Thunder ousted by Timberwolves in a heartbreaking game

26 October, 2017, 00:54 | Author: Carla Brady
  • Steven Adams double-double not enough as OKC Thunder slump to second-straight defeat

Russel Westbrook led his team with 31 points, five rebounds, and 10 assists in his 37 minutes of game time. Towns also grabbed a team-high 12 rebounds. In addition to extending Wiggins, the club acquired Jeff Teague and Taj Gibson via free agency and completed a deal with the Chicago Bulls to acquire Jimmy Butler, giving the starting five a sizeable overhaul. With 4.7 seconds remaining in the game following a Carmelo Anthony 3-pointer that gave the Thunder a one point lead, the small forward did his best Stephen Curry impression by pulling-up between the half court line and 3-point line for the biggest shot of his career.

Adams was instrumental in the first half, scoring 14 points on 7-of-8 shooting.

The #Oklahoma City Thunder started the game off as the Timberwolves were leading the first three-quarters of the game.

Andrew Wiggins was suddenly asked if he had called glass upon releasing his shot, which he humbly admitted he didn't, only to get his Timberwolves teammate Karl-Anthony Towns add on to that in the most savage way possible. He finished with 17 points.




The Pelicans led by 22 points in the second quarter and were still up by double figures heading into the final period, but the Lakers made a charge despite a poor shooting night from rookie Lonzo Ball.

Despite Adams' effort, the Thunder dug a hole early, facing a 13-point deficit midway through the first quarter as the Timberwolves picked up easy baskets.

It is the second game in a row the Timberwolves have been involved in a tight game following their win over the Utah Jazz last night. Raymond Felton and Jerami Grant each scored 12 points.
