Timberwolves deal Warriors second straight defeat

Timberwolves deal Warriors second straight defeat

Hassan Whiteside led the Heat with 26 points and eight rebounds.

NUGGETS 130, KINGS 104: Nikola Jokic had 20 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists for his seventh triple-double of the season, Gary Harris added 21 points and Denver cruised at home. Zaza Pachulia pitched in 16 points and 11 rebounds, but without their catalyst, Curry, the Warriors weren't the same.

The Wolves led by 10 after the first quarter, but trailed 62-55 at halftime.

The Minnesota Timberwolves stopped their National Basketball Association skid in dramatic style on Sunday, beating the reigning champion Golden State Warriors 109-103 in Minneapolis.

Iguodala will join Steph Curry (ankle) on the Warriors' sidelines as he misses a third straight game.

This was Rose's first on-court action since February 7 for Cleveland, against Minnesota. Over the remainder of the year, numberFire's models project him to record 7.9 points, 4.7 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 0.9 steals, and 1.1 3-pointers per game.

Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said Curry texted him Friday that he "had a good day of rehab" and that there wasn't any swelling, according to the San Jose Mercury News.

But the Timberwolves responded with consecutive baskets from Towns.

Curry is expected to return to action Wednesday when the Warriors return home to face the Los Angeles Lakers. Taj Gibson had 11 points and 13 rebounds, reaching double-digits scoring for the 18th time in the last 21 games.

Timberwolves: Hit the road to take on the Washington Wizards on Tuesday.
