The Golden State Warriors are hoping for a record setting season, but took an embarrassing loss at home Tuesday night. The Warriors were upset by the Minnesota Timberwolves 124-117 in overtime. Golden State was up 86-78 in the final period but the Timberwolves rallied to send the game into overtime where Andrew Wiggins scored nine points for Minnesota top help hand the Warriors their second home loss of the season.
It seemed to be an off-shooting night for Stephen Curry, who missed 18 of the 25 shots he attempted. Curry said he was frustrated but continues to look forward and be optimistic about the season. Curry is still embracing the challenge of winning 73 games this season.
Warriors coach Steve Kerr isn’t surprised at the pressure his team might be feeling; he was ironically in the same shoes back in 1996, having played for the Chicago Bulls two decades ago in their 72 winning record season.
