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.
