Golden State Warriors vs Minnesota Timberwolves: Lineups, preview & prediction 3/11/18

Karl-Anthony Towns Kevin Garnett

The Minnesota Timberwolves stopped their National Basketball Association skid in dramatic style on Sunday, beating the reigning champion Golden State Warriors 109-103 in Minneapolis.

Six Wolves players finished in double digits, including 23 points from Andrew Wiggins.

It was a complete team effort from the Wolves on both ends of the court. The Warriors rotation sans Curry, Iguodala, West, McCaw, and Bell is certainly less formidable, and the Wolves need to take advantage.

Golden State Warriors guard/forward Andre Iguodala (wrist) has been ruled out for Sunday's matchup with the Minnesota Timberwolves.

The short-handed Warriors, trying to salvage a two-game road trip after falling in Portland on Friday, again came up short with superstar Stephen Curry sidelined by a sprained right ankle.

Coming off the bench now while Javale McGee starts at center, Pachulia made his first seven shots to give the Warriors a big boost in another game with a thin bench.

Kevin Durant led Golden State with 39 points and 12 rebounds but shot just 11-for-32 from the field. Draymond Green added 10 points, eight rebounds, seven assists and three steals.

Iggy is averaging 18.8 FanDuel points per game this season.

Timberwolves: Towns reached his NBA-best 57th double-double of the season. The second time around, Jimmy Butler was out and Towns kept the Wolves in the game as long as he could, scoring 31 points (13-24 FG, 1-5 3P, 4-6 FT) with 11 rebounds and five assists.
