The National Basketball Association (NBA) has just published its “Last Two Minute Report” for the game that took place between the Golden State Warriors and the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday night. The report uncovered two missed calls that ended up helping the Warriors win the game. The first one was a journey on Jordan Poole, and the second one was an illegal screen committed by Draymond Green. The NBA has acknowledged that both of them should have been called but neither of them was, despite the fact that neither of them was called.
Warriors vs Timberwolves
Even though the Warriors had a legitimate chance to snag a win in the last minutes of their game against Minnesota, they ended up losing nevertheless. Both Draymond Green and Jordan Poole gave the ball away at inopportune moments during Golden State’s final few possessions, which led to a devastating outcome for the Warriors. When a game gets down to the wire as this one did, the officiating is put under an even greater inspection. Yet, the Warriors do not have anything to complain about in this game in terms of the Last Two Minute Report. The Warriors were unable to capitalize on a real opportunity to create some additional separation between themselves and the other teams in the play-in tournament, and as a result, they were defeated by the Timberwolves in a crucial game, which caused them to fall into a tie with the Timberwolves in the loss column. The Warriors are still in the driver’s seat to finish in the top six in the Western Conference, as they lead Minnesota by a half game in the overall standings, but they need to keep their foot on the gas pedal because the Timberwolves have won three in a row and the Pelicans have won four in a row. The Warriors are optimistic about their future despite the fact that they suffered this defeat. Having already received Gary Payton II’s return, the team’s hope is that they can come back to full health before the start of the playoffs. This would put them in a position to compete well against any opponent.
