The Minnesota Timberwolves were able to edge the Golden State Warriors 121-120 the last time the two teams played each other. It was the first time in 12 games that the Wolves were able to win when the game was decided by four or less points.
This was a great game to watch because it was high scoring and was close throughout the entire 48 minutes of action. After a first half that saw both teams score 63 points, the Warriors were able to get a bit of a run going and took a seven-point lead into the fourth quarter. After the Wolves were able to go on a run of their own late in the game, shooting guard Kevin Martin clinched the win for the visitors by making a jump-shot with just eight seconds left in the game.
Kevin Love didn't have his best shooting night for the Wolves, but he was still able to finish the game with 26 points, 14 rebounds and eight assists. Center Nikola Pekovic also came away with a double-double in the win with 22 points and 14 rebounds. Kevin Martin had 26 points, including making all three of his three-point attempts.
Stephen Curry was definitely not to blame for the Warriors' loss, as he was able to score a game-high 33 points and also provided 15 assists for his teammates. Power forward David Lee had 23 points and seven rebounds in the loss, while shooting guard Klay Thompson had 18 points.
