Golden State Warriors Scores: Warriors Lead Timberwolves 41-32 After 1st Quarter

The Minnesota Timberwolves came firing out of the gate against the Golden State Warriors in the first quarter, but the W’s battles back to take the lead 41-32 going into the second quarter. It was a bit of a sloppy start for both teams with 11 turnovers in the quarter (4 by the W’s) but also included some high scoring.

The Wolves had a 9 point lead early that got erased with Michael Beasley and Darko Milicic on the bench in foul trouble leading to a 10-2 W’s run. Thankfully for the Warriors Dorell Wright showed up today in Minnesota, scoring the first 10 points for the W’s in the first quarter, ending with 15 for the period including three 3 pointers. Monta Ellis started out icy cold in frigid Minneapolis going 0-5 from the floor to begin the game but picked it up towards the end of the quarter and finished with 8 points. The W’s started out shooting 60.3% in the first quarter while the T’Wolves shot 50%.

The W’s half court defense was struggling as the Timberwolves got too many easy buckets, but hopefully some adjustments can be made by head coach Keith Smart throughout the game.
