The TWolves did something on Tuesday night no other team has been able to do this season: keep Steph Curry scoreless in the first half. More shocking than that stat is the TWolves also pulled off an OT victory in Oakland – the 2nd home loss in the past 5 nights.
“You have so much media attention and everybody talking about breaking the record, and you lose focus a little bit,” Kerr said after the loss. “The same thing happened 20 years ago. We didn’t play well down the stretch. This doesn’t surprise me. It’s easy to get lost in all this stuff. We haven’t been very dialed in of late.”
Curry did finish with with 21 points and 15 assists but missed 18 of his 25 shots, 10 of 14 from 3 and was 3 of 11 in the 4th and OT.
For the Wolves, Bad Azz Shabazz had a career-high 35, Andrew Wiggins had 32 and future ROY Karl-Anthony Towns had another double-double with 20 & 12.
