Let's face it. The Golden State Warriors desperately needed a victory tonight. They've lost a staggering six in a row and only two of their last 13, but came out hungry against the Minnesota Timberwolves at the Target Center Wednesday night. The hungriest Warrior of them all was David Lee, who's impressive 31 points against the T'Wolves Kevin Love led the way for a 97-94 Golden State victory.
Golden State clawed their way back from a 20-point deficit behind Lee's 31 and eight boards, though multiple W's got in on the action tonight. Charles Jenkins had 19 points and seven assists, while rookie Klay Thompson and Richard Jefferson each dropped 13 apiece.
Kevin Love had 29 points and 12 rebounds while Wayne Ellington added 17 points for Minnesota, who have now lost four in a row and five of their last six. J.J. Barea had 15 points and eight dimes in his return from injury. He unfortunately also committed seven turnovers on the night, a large chunk of the T'Wolves 19 on the night.
The W's now make a stop in Salt Lake City to take on the Utah Jazz Friday night, with tipoff set for 6:00 p.m. PT.
