The San Antonio Spurs took on the Minnesota Timberwolves this Tuesday, and once again provided the nation with a bewilderingly close game. For one of the NBA’s worst teams, they certainly seem to give the Spurs a lot of trouble. On top of following close behind throughout the duration of the game, the Wolves also racked up an astonishing five technical fouls in a short span of 20 seconds. Minnesota forward Kevin Love said, “I’ve never seen that before… that had to be a first. That was just crazy.” In the end, San Antonio shone through and took the game to improve to an NBA-best 32-6 record. Vegas odds.

Despite such a stunning record, the veteran team has struggled against the Timberwolves. In their three meetings this season, they have won only by a combined 13 points. The first was even taken into overtime. Still, San Antonio’s strong cast of players delivered well on the night. Manu Ginobili had 19 points, 9 rebounds and 6 assists, making all five of the technical free throws. Richard Jefferson came through with 17 points and five rebounds, while Tony Parker contributed 12 points with 13 assist for another double-double this season. The stats are not bad when you consider the fact that San Antonio only had 11 active players for the game. The win marked the Spurs sixteenth straight win over the Wolves. Betting lines.

Minnesota cut the lead a number of times throughout the game but came closest in the third quarter. However, that is when they went on a technical spree. Darko Milicic and Corey Brewer received the first two for gesturing towards referee Ken Mauer on the same play at a bit over three minutes into the third. Coach Kurt Rambis immediately got up to discuss the calls, and quickly received two MIN fouls for at 8:36 remaining. Sports scores.

Ten seconds later, Love hollered at officials for not calling a loose-ball foul on Tim Duncan to net the final technical in 10 seconds. After that, San Antonio proceeded to pick the Wolves apart. The loss represented the team’s fifth consecutive loss. Find the best betting information, scores and latest lines on the Net at
