Though their performance was inspiring, the Timberwolves lost last night in heartbreaking fashion on the road to the Los Angeles Clippers, a team widely expected to be one of the best in the Western Conference this season.
Down 109-107 with about seven seconds left, Kevin Love's last-gasp attempt to tie the game literally came up centimeters short. As the final horn sounded on an extremely entertaining game, all Kevin could do was put his hands on his head, smile, look at his coaches and say, "My bad."
