What a game last night. I woke up and thought that it was all a dream until I opened at my computer. Proceeded to go to ESPN and saw that it was no dream.  The Minnesota Timberwolves defeated one of the best NBA teams of all time the Golden State Warriors. Those are words I never thought I would say this year, but here we are.

Golden State Warriors

69-9, 37-2 Home

 

It was one hell of a comeback sparked by the bench, specifically Shabazz Muhammad who finished the game with 35. But how about the refs trying to fuck us over with REVERSING A BLOCK/CHARGE call. How can you overturn that? The only reason they reviewed it was because the “almighty god” Steph Curry looked at the ref with amazement, like he wasn’t moving his upper body when Towns hit him. On the closing possession of regulation Steph had a blatant double dribble. There were phantom calls against Curry, the list goes on and on. You can’t make these things up. It’s fucking embarrassing for a league that often has issues with officiating and murmurs about fixing games. It was supposed to be a historic night for the Warriors with their 70th win and the refs did everything they could to give them the game. Andrew Wiggins said fix this, while grabbing his genital region (probably).

“It looks like he’s stationary, then again it looks as if he’s moving.” That is a riddle that may never be solved.
Am I too ambitious to think that the Wolves will make the playoffs next year? I mean the average age of the starting lineup is  22 years old so there’s a long road ahead, but this game has me so excited. And how good have the last  two draft picks been. Karl-Anthony Towns is showing he will be a dominant big man and Andrew Wiggins, who had 32 pts and SIX steals last night, has already shown flashes of genius. Chalk up back-to-back ROYs for the Twolves.
