Warriors eventually find flow without Green, beat Minnesota
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Stephen Curry had 34 points, eight rebounds and six assists, and the Golden State Warriors overcame the absence of do-everything Draymond Green to beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 115-102 on Saturday night.
Curry shot 13 for 19 with four 3-pointers, while Kevin Durant added 28 points, 10 rebounds, five assists and a career-high six blocked shots. Klay Thompson scored 23 points with four 3s to go with six rebounds for Golden State.
Green sat out a day after bruising his left ankle at Los Angeles in a collision with teammate Ian Clark, who also missed the game after being hit in the throat on the play.
Zach LaVine scored 31 points with five 3s, while Karl-Anthony Towns had 12 of his 18 points in the first quarter on 6-for-10 shooting. He then quieted down and missed five of his next six attempts before a three-point play with 4:03 remaining.
