Minnesota Timberwolves 93

Oklahoma City Thunder 113

The Minnesota Timberwolves were no match for the Oklahoma City Thunder Friday night. The Wolves fell 113-93 to the Thunder – Minnesota's ninth straight defeat.

1. Westbrook, Durant turn into Wolves' nightmare

It would be hard to believe that any team has a tandem that plays better against Minnesota. Russell Westbrook had a triple-double finishing with 12 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists.

Nothing he did on the night was prettier than this though.

Kevin Durant also had another big night against the Wolves. He finished with 21 points on 7-of-14 shooting.

Both sat out the entire fourth quarter.

2. Wolves left in the cold

The Timberwolves were about as cold as it gets Friday night. Minnesota shot just 40 percent from the floor, but they improved that in the fourth quarter.

After three quarters Minnesota was shooting just 35 percent, and they couldn't close the gap much in the fourth.

3. Wiggins was Wolves lone bright spot

There weren't a lot of bright spots for the Wolves, but Andrew Wiggins gave Wolves' fans a little something to cheer for. He finished with 25 points to go with three rebounds and three assists

Tweet of the Night:

Kevin Durant, you have now been dunked on!
