Timberwolves vs. Golden State

  • Warriors star Curry sits out two-game trip

Butler had knee surgery to fix a meniscus and his return this season is in doubt.

Minnesota has lost four of the past six games, including the game Butler was hurt.

While Warriors guard Quinn Cook will start in Curry's place, the Warriors recalled Damian Jones from Santa Cruz. Bell could be back as soon as Wednesday, and McCaw is set to get his left wrist re-evaluated by team doctors Wednesday. He is averaging 26.3 points, 6.2 assist and 5.1 rebounds per game while shooting 42.4 percent from three-point range.

If one thing is certain, the Timberwolves have shown that they have a strong presence in the paint when playing Golden State due to the Warriors lack of size near the basket. Gibson also adds another big body in the paint to help the Timberwolves crash the boards for second-chance opportunities.

Durant's 3-pointer and a jumper gave Golden State a 77-73 lead with 4:01 left in the third.


As Towns has said before, however, beating the Warriors requires more than winning the battle in the post. "We've got to be careful with it". "No matter, uncontested, contested, it didn't matter". But this Thursday night on the road with a battered up team isn't likely to be the spot that the Spurs snap their losing streak against the Warriors.

In addition, it has not been decided if Derrick Rose will play in Sunday's game. Kevin Durant stepped up in his absence by dropping 37 points and 11 rebounds.

Warriors Off Court is available on iTunes and other podcast apps.

On Friday morning, it was reported that Curry will not travel with the team and will remain at home to rest and recover. As a team, the Warriors shot 48 percent from the field and 12 of 28 from the three-point line but just as it looked like they were in control of the game, the Trailblazers exploded on a decisive 18-7 run late in the fourth quarter to snatch the game from them.

The Wolves and Warriors tip off at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday.
