After starting off the season with a respectable 5-2 record, things have gone from bad to worse for Minnesota. On Saturday night, Golden State handed the Timberwolves their fifth straight loss. Much of the Warriors 96-85 victory can be attributed to the offense put up by Steph Curry and Klay Thompson, combining for 44 of Golden State's 96 points.

In addition to Curry and Thompson's work, Harrison Barnes added a double-double with 10 points and 11 rebounds. From the bench, Carl Landry contributed 18 points, sinking all 10 of his free throws and shooting 4-for-7 in the field. As a team Golden State out-rebounded Minnesota 48 to 39 and sunk 83 percent of all free throws. Small forward Richard Jefferson did not play because of a strained right calf.

In the loss, Kevin Love had a double-double with 15 points and 15 rebounds. Center Nikola Petrovick lead the T-Wolves in scoring with 17 points. Off the bench, J.J. Barea added eight points and 10 assists.
