When you allow a team to shoot 56 percent from the floor and 41 from behind the arc, you're going to have a bad time.

And even without Kevin Durant, the Golden State Warriors cruised to a 125-101 win over the Timberwolves on Wednesday night from Oracle Arena.

Although Minnesota trailed by just one point at halftime, Golden State pulled away in the second half outscoring the Wolves 74-51.

Klay Thompson and Steph Curry put up 28 and 22 points respectively in the win.

Jimmy Butler, who looked uncomfortable all night, had just 11 points on 5 of 12 shooting. Andrew Wiggins had a promising start but scored just 9 points over the final three quarters.
