Warriors cannot be stopped, hold off late Timberwolves push
Draymond Green leaves the game after knee to knee contact
This is why I watch all the games.
After pushing to a comfortable halftime lead on the strength of an Andrew Wiggins revenge game, the Golden State Warriors watched the Minnesota Timberwolves drag themselves back into the game during what is normally a strong Warriors 3rd quarter. But in the end, it didn’t matter, as the Warriors depth was just too much for the Timberwolves to contend with.
Or… actually, maybe it wasn’t depth, but top end talent? Stephen Curry, Andrew Wiggins (35 points on 19 shots), Draymond Green, and Kevon Looney (career-high 17 rebounds, and some fantastic defense on KAT) all started this game and played huge roles in winning the battle.
As always, this is just a short place holder thread for our community to discuss the game. Our team will be back in the morning with your full recap goodness. For now, we celebrate another Warriors victory!
My goodness, indeed!
If you are looking for takeaways, I’ll be paying extra attention to Green, who left the game in the 3rd after taking this knee to knee contact. As a basketball player, I cannot over emphasize how much those “knee to the side of your knee” impacts suck. Hopefully Green is okay. He shot his free throws, but immediately went to the locker room and didn’t return.
