With the game tied at 104 and just under six minutes to play, Martin knocked down a big three to put the Wolves up three at 107-104. Curry made a couple of free throws to cut it to two at 113-111, but moments later Corey Brewer drilled a big three to put the Wolves up five at 116-111.

But again the Warriors weren't ready to go away, they erased the Wolves lead and took a 120-119 lead with after Andre Iguodola made a pair of free throws. But with just eight seconds left, Love put the game away for the Wolves as he hit a 20-foot jumper.

The Wolves got the stop after Harrison Barnes missed the jumper in the closing seconds.
