Warriors slow Wolves late, despite another big night from Love

Publish date:

The Wolves fell back below .500 on Monday night falling to the Golden State Warriors 130-120.

Stephen Curry was outstanding for the Warriors. He had 32 points and dished out 15 assists. That included the game-changer, as Curry hit a step-back three, in the closing moments of the fourth quarter, to put the Wolves away.

It was the seventh three on the night for Curry.

He was one of four Warriors who eclipsed 20 points on the night. David Lee added 25 points and grabbed nine rebounds. Draymond Green and Klay Thompson added 20 for Golden State.

There was a lot of offense early in the game as Kevin Love and Curry went back-and-forth in the first.

Love scored 22 points in the first quarter helping the Wolves build a 14-point lead in the first. He finished with another double-double on the night, finishing with 40 points and 14 rebounds. Love also dished out nine assists, just missing another triple-double.

The Warriors battled back in the second, cutting the Wolves lead all the way back down to two by the break, and they didn't let off the gas in the third or the fourth, erasing the deficit and advancing for the victory.

Ricky Rubio added 15 points, he dished out eight assists and Corey Brewer scored 22. Gorgui Dieng posted another double-double for the Wolves too. He finished with 14 points and 11 rebounds.

The Wolves (40-41) need a win in their final game of the season on Wednesday night, back at Target Center against Utah.
