The Timberwolves were without a few key players last night and their energy was lacking from the opening tip. Needless to say, a shorthanded Minnesota squad lost to Memphis by 17 last night. These last two bad losses have essentially closed the door on any playoff hopes for the T-Wolves this year.
The Philadelphia 76ers are awful. They've now lost 25 games in a row. That's only one loss away from the NBA's league record for most consecutive losses.
A completely different streak came to an end last night. The NHL's hottest team, the Boston Bruins had their winning streak snapped at 12 games by Montreal 2-1 in overtime.
