Through 2 Quarters

We’ve seen some fireworks two quarters in as the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Golden State Warriors have combined for 121 points. Either team is in a position to win, but Minnesota leads 61-60. Center Karl-Anthony Towns has led the way so far for the Timberwolves, as he has 23 points and two assists in addition to seven boards.

Minnesota and Golden State came into this matchup with previous-game wins. We’ll see if Minnesota can maintain their lead to polish off another victory and cancel out Golden State’s positive energy.

Minnesota @ Golden State

Current Records: Minnesota 24-23; Golden State 35-13

What to Know

The Golden State Warriors will play host again and welcome the Minnesota Timberwolves to Chase Center, where tip-off is scheduled for 10 p.m. ET on Thursday. Golden State is out to keep their three-game home win streak alive.

A well-balanced attack led the Warriors over the Dallas Mavericks every single quarter on their way to victory on Tuesday. Golden State took their game at home with ease, bagging a 130-92 victory over Dallas. The matchup was all but wrapped up at the end of the third, by which point Golden State had established a 97-78 advantage. Power forward Jonathan Kuminga was the offensive standout of the contest for Golden State, picking up 22 points along with five boards. Kuminga had some trouble finding his footing against the Utah Jazz on Sunday, so this was a step in the right direction.

Meanwhile, it was a close one, but on Tuesday Minnesota sidestepped the Portland Trail Blazers for a 109-107 win. Kudos to the oddsmakers for accurately forecasting both the winner and the close margin. It was another big night for the Timberwolves’ small forward Anthony Edwards, who had 40 points in addition to nine rebounds and three blocks.

The Warriors suffered a grim 119-99 defeat to Minnesota in the teams’ previous meeting earlier this month. Can Golden State avenge their defeat, or is history doomed to repeat itself? We’ll soon find out.
