The Timberwolves were blown out at home by the Thunder on Friday, in a game that was decided well before the first quarter was finished.

Minnesota trailed by as many as 22 points early on, which is perhaps the only explanation for the referees allowing Corey Brewer to take about six steps before throwing down an uncontested dunk in transition.

Seriously -- no travel was called on the play, and sympathy from the officials is the single reason I can think of that this egregious violation of the rules went unpunished.
