Another reason I was interested in the game was because I had yet to see John Wall play a real game "live". I watched Wall play during the NBA All-Star Rookie Challenge, but that didn't count. Wall finished the game with a double-double (i.e. 18 points and 11 boards), but Andray Blatche was the Wizards' high scorer (i.e. 20 points). In a losing effort, Michael Beasley dropped 18 points, but Kevin Love contributed 20 points and 21 boards. WOW. 50 double-double games, in a row... **** Moses Malone's record of 51 consecutive double-doubles looks like it's going down!
This game was winnnable for the Timberwolves, but when asked by the guy next to me if I thought the T'wolves would pull it out, I said, "No." It was what it was, and the Timberwolves just don't have that killer instinct YET... Tough loss.
Final score: Timberwolves 96, Wizards 103.
