Kyle Terada-US PRESSWIRE
The Warriors pulled away in the second half just far enough to ensure the T-Wolves wouldn't be able to catch up.
Lee was the man of the night with 18 points and 13 rebounds as the Warriors used a balanced offense attack to pull out the victory. Six Warriors finished the game with double-digit points, including 15 and 13 from Carl Landry and Jarrett Jack off of the bench.
The Warriors were down 12 with just under seven minutes left in the second quarter but went on to outscore the Timberwolves 21-6 to take a 53-50 lead at halftime.
Coming out of the half the Timberwolves went a bit flat as the Warriors outscored them 29-19. Led by Curry who scored nine points in the third quarter, the Warriors jumped out to a 10 point lead quickly and were able to hold on.
The Timberwolves mounted a fourth-quarter comeback as the Warriors' offense went cold, but it fell just a bit short. Timberwolves forward Derrick Williams led all scorers in the game with 23 points. He also added four blocks.
Although the Warriors struggled from the three-point line, only going 2-for-15, they out-rebounded the Timberwolves 50-34.
