The two teams with the best record in the NBA did battle on Wednesday night, with the Golden State Warriors thumping the Atlanta Hawks at Oracle Arena. On Thursday night, the two worst teams in the league in the New York Knicks and Minnesota Timberwolved duked it out in an “epic” tank-off.
The game was a nail-biting affair, with fans of both teams rooting for a loss. The game went to overtime, but ultimately it was the Wolves who came away with the victory. Alexey Shved and Andrea Bargnani both sealed the tank win for the Knicks by missing key shots late in overtime, and Knicks fans were elated:
SHVED. TANK MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.

Rooting for that Knicks loss was legitimately more enjoyable than any part of last season.

Tank you very much, Knicks. With the loss, New York secured the worst record in the league for at least awhile longer.
