Warrios Beat Timberwolves, 117-107, Behind Curry's Big NightThe Golden State Warriors took down the Minnesota Timberwolves, 117-107, at Target Center on Tuesday evening. In what proved to be a quintessential Golden State win, Steph Curry scored 22 third-quarter points to elevate the Warriors (48-22) to victory. Curry's offensive outburst helped contribute to a barrage of three-pointers hit by the Warriors. Golden State finished with 19 makes from beyond the arc in the win. Minnesota (32-39), meanwhile, stayed competitive thanks to its tenacity on the glass. That was primarily fueled by star big man Karl-Anthony Towns, who delivered 26 points and 21 rebounds on the night. Curry finished with a team-high 36 points, including eight three-pointers. He was joined by a strong night from Klay Thompson, who poured in 28 points on 11-of-21 shooting. The Warriors were without star center DeMarcus Cousins, who was sidelined by a mild ankle injury. All five starters scored in double figures for Minnesota, but that was not enough to get the job done. The Timberwolves shot just 40.4 percent from the field and 9-of-36 from three-point range. Andrew Wiggins turned in a strong performance, though, finishing with 20 points, eight rebounds, and six assists. On Thursday, Golden State will host the Indiana Pacers while Minnesota will visit the Charlotte Hornets.
