The Golden State Warriors suffered the inexplicable loss to a talented, albeit inexperienced, Minnesota Timberwolves team that had little, if anything, to technically play for.

After Minnesota’s 124-117 overtime victory, Golden State must now win its final four games to reach 73 wins and surpass the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls’ record 72-10 season.
