Golden State hands Wolves fourth straight loss
Author:

Another late collapse and another loss, the fourth straight, for the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Golden State used a 28-6 run to start the fourth quarter to brush back the Wolves en route to a 116-108 win at Target Center. The Wolves led the game by 10-points after three quarters but couldn't hold it. The Warriors outscored Minnesota 38-20 in the fourth to lock up the win.

Klay Thompson scored 30, Kevin Durant and Steph Curry both dropped 22 for Golden State, with Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins both netting 25 for the Wolves.

The Warriors have the NBA's best record of 21-4 while the Wolves fall to the basement of the Western Conference, just percentage points above cellar dwelling Dallas, with a 6-18 record.

For the NBA record setting 111th consecutive game, Golden State avoided back-to-back losses after being drubbed in Memphis 110-89 Saturday night.
