Congrats to Don Nelson, who set the NBA record for coaching victories against a Wolves lineup of Jonny Flynn, Corey Brewer, Ryan Gomes, Kevin Love, Darko Milicic, Damien Wilkins, Ramon Sessions, Sasha Pavlovic, and Ryan Hollins. Most impressively, he did so with a lineup of Stephen Curry, Reggie Williams, Corey Maggette, Ronny Turiaf, Anthony Tolliver, Anthony Morrow, Chris Hunter, and Devan George, thus barely qualifying the proceedings as an NBA contest.
In other news, earlier in the day almost the entire Kentucky team declared for the draft and would likely be chosen ahead of any of the players on the court save for Kevin Love and Stephen Curry, should the Wolves and Warriors magically be allowed to enter into the 2010 extravaganza.
Here's a condensed game recap: The Wolves can't defend. Golden State posted an eFG of 61% and managed an OReb rate of 21.2% Stephen Curry went for 27 points, 8 rebounds, 14 assists, and 7 steals. Yours truly went for an early exit and read a book starting at 4:12 into the 2nd quarter.
This season cannot end quickly enough.
Feel free to throw your two cents about the game into the comments.
