Golden State Warriors Scores: Timberwolves Battle Back, Take 104-89 Lead Into 4th Quarter

In a game that has seen the momentum swing back and forth, it swayed the Timberwolves way in the 3rd quarter as they took a 104-89 lead into the 4th quarter.

The Minnesota Timberwolves came out of the half looking to attack the basket and used a 17-3 run to regain the lead. The Warriors tried to shoot themselves back into the game against a relatively stagnent Minnesota defense, but the shots simply weren’t falling. The W’s shooting percentage dropped to 43.2 % as they managed to score a total of 16 points in the 3rd. Stephen Curry leads all Golden State scorers with 22.

The Warriors had a 14 point lead at one point in the first half while the Timberwolves turned it around to have an 12 point lead of their own in the 3rd quarter behind another dominating performance by Kevin Love scoring 34 points and an astounding 20 rebounds through 3 quarters. It is his NBA leading 55 double-double this season, and a big one at that. The T’Wolves took over the game through their rebounding, now with a 48-31 advantage in that category.

The W’s are going to have to dig deep in the final period if they are going to leave Minneapolis victorious. They are 6-27 when trailing heading into the 4th quarter.
