Warriors blitz Wolves in 4th for 7th straight win


Klay Thompson saved 10 of his 22 points for the first six minutes of the fourth quarter Friday night, helping the Golden State Warriors overcome a deficit to beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 116-99 in Oakland, Calif.

Kevin Durant led all scorers with 33 points, and Stephen Curry dropped in 28 with nine rebounds and seven assists for the Warriors, who won their seventh straight but failed to reach 120 points for the first time during the streak.

Andrew Wiggins had 22 points, and Jimmy Butler scored 21 for the Timberwolves, who lost Derrick Rose five minutes into his first stint off the bench with an ankle injury. Rose was coming off a career-high 50-point explosion Wednesday at Utah.

After leading by as many as 12 in the first half, the Warriors found themselves down 87-83 at the start of the fourth quarter before Thompson caught fire.

After trading baskets with Butler, Thompson buried consecutive 3-pointers to put Golden State ahead for good 91-89 with 10:19 remaining.

Thompson added another hoop while Alfonzo McKinnie connected on a pair, including a 3-pointer, as the Warriors completed a 25-6 run that opened a 108-93 lead with 2:54 to go.

The Timberwolves, who had won their previous two games, were held to three field goals in the first nine minutes of the final period, all by Butler.

Thompson and Curry each buried four 3-pointers, and Durant chipped in with three as Golden State shot 13-for-34 (38.2 percent) from beyond the arc.

Durant led all players with 13 rebounds, giving him a double-double, while Draymond Green had a game-high 11 assists to complement nine points and nine rebounds.

Karl-Anthony Towns notched a 13-point, 11-rebound double-double for the Timberwolves, who were opening a five-game road trip.

Josh Okogie (15 points) and Taj Gibson (12) also scored in double figures for Minnesota.

The Timberwolves matched the Warriors' 39 points on 3-pointers, but they needed 11 more attempts, finishing 13-for-45 (28.9 percent).
