Featured Game | Golden State Warriors vs. Minnesota Timberwolves
What you need to know about the Warriors
The Warriors took another decisive win in their last game against the Atlanta Hawks on Monday at home, 127-113. Stephen Curry went supernova for Golden State as he shot 9-for-19 from downtown and finished with a double-double with 50 points with 10 assists and seven rebounds.
The majority of Golden State’s games this season have come following a day off, which is the scenario on Wednesday. In those games, the Warriors’ defense has been especially strong, and they’ve only allowed other teams to score an average of 98 points. Golden State’s opponents at the Chase Center have made just 29 percent of their 3-point attempts, which could be crucial, as Minnesota shoots the most 3-pointers in the NBA, but only makes just over 32 percent of them.
What you need to know about the Timberwolves
Minnesota nearly stopped its losing streak in its last game, but fell in overtime to Memphis on Monday, 125-118. Minnesota got a solid performance out of point guard D’Angelo Russell, who shot 6-for-13 from beyond the arc and finished with 30 points, seven dimes and five boards. Russell’s showing was encouraging after he had missed several recent games with an ankle injury.
The Warriors are the league’s highest-scoring side, but the Timberwolves are in the league’s bottom-third of teams, offensively. After a down night against the Clippers on November 5, shooting guard Anthony Edwards found his groove on Monday with a 27-point showing against the Grizzlies. Karl-Anthony Towns continues as Minnesota’s best player, and has averaged 23.6 points and 9.7 rebounds this season.
