Warriors beat Wolves despite LaVine's record-setting night


The Timberwolves' so-called "bounce bros" Zach LaVine and Andrew Wiggins put up record-breaking performances Saturday, but it was enough to take down the No. 1 team Golden State.

The Warriors walked away with the 110-101 win against the Wolves.

With the 37th home win, the Warriors broke their franchise record, according to NBA.com. The top team has only lost two times at home this season.

Golden State was down 31-28 in the first quarter before finding its pace. The Wolves narrowed the gap from 17 to just one point during the game, but the Warriors had the golden touch in the end.

The Wolves have lost 10 in a row now with only two games left in the season. They host the Pelicans Monday and the Thunder Wednesday.

NBA.com reports Ricky Rubio will have "exploratory arthroscopic surgery" on his ankle Monday in California.
