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. The Wolves did, however, have the opportunity to beat the champs on national television. They seized it, and now Golden State’s 73-win chase is very much in doubt.
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.
