Jimmy Butler did his part on Friday night to try to send the Miami Heat home with a victory to cap their four-game trip.
But his 30 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists weren't enough as the Heat dropped their third game in a row, this time to the lowly Minnesota Timberwolves.
And now Miami returns home Sunday against a much tougher opponent when it hosts the Brooklyn Nets.
"You just think we're such a good team, and then reality hits us, we're humbled," Butler said. "And I'm glad. Because that's what this game does to you, home, away, no matter what opponent you're playing against, you just stroll into the game thinking you're nice, you're good, this is what happens. If we don't fix it, I hope it continues to happen to us."
Karl-Anthony Towns was back in Minnesota's lineup and scored 24 points and sparked a 22-6 run in the fourth quarter to take the game from the Heat.
