Efforts in Vain: OKC Fell One Step Short to Victory Against Wolves

Big shot after big shot!

Andrew Wiggins’ winning three-point shot against OKC


The Oklahoma City Thunder went through another unfortunate lost with their foe Minnesota Timberwolves winning with a 2 point lead via Andrew Wiggins breath-taking 3-pointer that beat the clock winding down.
The final 8 seconds of the game was a long thrilling 8 seconds, before Wiggins hit the winning shot, it seemed that Carmelo Anthony’s three-pointer was the supposed to be winning shot bringing the OKC up by 1 point but two big shots in a relatively short period of time is a phenomenon we do not see every day.
After OKC’s lost against Utah Jazz – Westbrook’s dormancy, the triple threat’s missing link Russell Westbrook redeemed himself with an ultimate explosion in their game against the Wolves, Russell finished with 31 points plus 10 assists.
Despite the ultimate performance of the triple threat and Steven Adams, still Thunder’s starter production had a missing link, Andre Roberson started the game and finished scoreless after 22 minutes of play whilst all of the Wolves’ starters were in double digits. Roberson was the missing link that made OKC fell one step short.
All in all, it was obviously a very close game, no significant difference in the team stats. It just happened that the Timberwolves were the last to hit the winning shot before the final buzzer buzzed and ceased the whole arena, leaving a throng of crowd stunned of what they have witnessed right before their eyes. The victory was in Thunder’s palm but then it slipped away in a blink of an eye.
Scores:
Wolves 115 – Wiggins 27, Towns 27, Teague 19, Butler 15, Gibson 11, bench – 16
Thunder 113 – Westbrook 31, Anthony 23, Adams 17, George 14, Roberson 0, bench – 28

Ball Scrutiny: 5 Reasons Why Golden State Warriors Dominated Their 2nd Preseason Match Against Timberwolves

Pachulia Blocking Towns

After a shameful loss in their first game against Minnesota, the Golden State Warriors awakened their true spirit, thrashed the wolves in their second preseason match up 142-110.

Splash Brothers with a Tsunami

Klay Thompson and Steph with a huge domination from beyond the arc – Warriors’ main weapon. Klay Thompson shot 80% from the rainbow country with 28 points, Steph Curry with a monstrous 40- point explosion, shooting 66 % from the 3 point area. Thompson and Curry shot 14 three-pointers combined, which doubled up the whole Timberwolves 3 point shooting.

High Scoring Ball Game

The first quarter ended, 41-36. A high scoring ball game equals a high-paced ball game which is very evident that the game is going on the Warrior’s run and gun style of play.

Impeccable Play Execution

No matter how they throw in the ball, the hoop just seems to suck it down.  It’s just because of the incredible Warrior’s passing style plus the every player really connects with the hoop everytime they take a shot.

Inside Control

Warriors limited the Minnesota in Offensive Rebounding to just 6, thus limiting their extra possession and 2nd chance points.

The warriors, known as outside gunners yet managed to neutralize the inside,  they even had a 2 point advantage in terms of points in the shaded area. It leaves no room for Minnesota to start a sizzle as the Warriors are ferocious inside and outside.

Every Drop Counts

The Golden State Warriors shot 80% of their free throws (20-25) which is far well than the first game when they missed 12.

A different city every night, oh, I swear

The room better prepare
For when the Knicks win that hardware”

Pak Yow song by Prison Dancers.

Lyrics:

Pak Yow

(Do the Pak Yow)
Manny Pacquiao is his name
he will punch you in your brain
you can do just like he does
when you put on your boxing gloves

(Pak Yow! x4)

Manny Pacquiao is the best
You know he can beat the rest
Sometimes when you touch his punch
His fist will eat your face for lunch

(Pak Yow! x4)

Everybody duck the rope

Everybody rope a dope

BUBOY!!!

Manny Pacquiao is the king
king of all the Philippines
right jab
he can kick your ass
left punch
take off your moustache

(Pak Yow x4)

Who’s your coach?
Freddie Roach x8

Who’s your coach?
Ask yourself that question…
