Three Wolves scored more than 20 points. Kevin Love and Nikola Pekovic had double-doubles. Love finished with 26 points and 14 rebounds, Pekovic had 22 points and 14 rebounds. While Kevin Martin finished with 26 points, he was 3 of 3 from behind the arc.

Steph Curry had 33 points to lead the Warriors. He also dished out 15 assists. David Lee added 23 for Golden State.

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.
