Timberwolves suffer worst loss in franchise historyPosted by Inside Hoops
Jerry Zgodda of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports:
Tonight’s 42-point blowout loss set a franchise record, by one point over a 1996 game at Miami (Kevin Garnett’s rookie year) and last November’s unforgettable 146-105 loss at Golden State.
That’s the only Wolves record that fell, although a couple dropped for the Magic.
The 78 first-half points scored was one shy of the 79 the Wolves allowed Phoenix in the first half last March in Phoenix.
But it was the most a Magic team has ever scored in a first half, three more than the 75 they put on Sacramento in January 2009.
Dwight Howard, who got into foul trouble and left the game for a good stretch after just two minutes, set a franchise record for most blocks in a quarter, blocking six in the third.
