Welcome to "box scores that time forgot," a semi-regularly occurring feature here at RandBall. Let's delve into an NBA game from January 2010. Excited? You should be. Because ...

*The game between the Wolves and Rockets went three overtimes.

*The reason it got that far is that Corey Brewer SWISHED a three-point shot from half court at the buzzer at the end of regulation.

*The head coach of the Wolves was Kurt Rambis. The head coach of the Rockets was Rick Adelman. Things are better now.

*The Wolves' leading scorer was Al Jefferson (26 points). The second-leading scorer was Ryan Gomes (18). Kevin Love scored eight points on 2-for-10 shooting, which is inconceivable just two years later.

*Jonny Flynn had 9 points on 3-for-13 shooting and missed two shots near the end of the first OT that might have won the game.

*Nathan Jawai played nine minutes. FOR THE TIMBERWOLVES.

*Aaron Brooks played 59 minutes and scored 43 points for Adelman's Rockets. Work on that conditioning, fellas.

*Newly acquired Wolves swingman Chase Budinger managed to be a minus-12 in just 5:32 of court time.
