Timberwolves snap losing streak with win over Warriors

Following the Warriors' 109-103 road loss Sunday night in Minnesota, Kevin Durant told reporters that it is "weird" for the Warriors to play without injured co-star Stephen Curry.

At one point, the National Basketball Association star got a little wild and channeled his inner Rick James when he jumped onstage with teammate Kevin Durant and busted out "Give It To Me Baby". And for now, the Timberwolves find themselves fifth out west.

Twenty minutes after losing their second straight game for just the second time this season, Warriors players filtered out from the showers.

The Warriors have climbed the rankings this season in points per game (#1), field goal percentage (#1) and three point percentage (#1).

According to oddsmakers from online sportsbook YouWager, the Warriors are 5-point road favorites to knock off the Timberwolves this afternoon.

Donovan Mitchell scored 25 of his 27 points in the second half as Utah defeated host New Orleans.

The team's injury list has been growing in recent weeks as Iguodala and Bell have missed three straight games and West has missed four on the trot. Taj Gibson (11 points, 13 rebounds) and Jeff Teague (10 points, 10 assists) joined Towns with double-doubles, and most importantly the energy on defense was as high as it's been since All-Star Jimmy Butler went down with a knee injury six games ago. Toronto picked up its 15th victory in 16 games despite just nine points from All-Star DeMar DeRozan on 4 of 16 shooting.

Minnesota ranks first in steals allowed per game (6.3) while Golden State ranks 29th (8.8).

Nikola Jokic recorded his seventh triple-double of the season by providing 20 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists in the Nuggets' 130-104 laugher over the Kings.

76ERS 120, NETS 97: Joel Embiid scored 21 points, Robert Covington added 19 and Philadelphia won at NY.

The over is 11-4 in the Warriors' last 15 games coming off a loss and is a ideal 6-0 in the Timberwolves' last six home games. To score 21 points, Klay Thompson needed 22 shots. The team needs work on defensive rebounds per game (#27), blocks per game (#23) and three point percentage (#19).
