LAST TIME OUT
The Warriors came back from a seven-point fourth-quarter deficit to force overtime but eventually ran out of gas in Saturday’s 99-92 loss to the Jazz. Nate Robinson helped force the extra period with a team-high 19 points and David Lee added 18 points in the defeat. Klay Thompson sparked the Warriors early with nine of his 17 points in the first period and Dorell Wright logged a double-double. FULL GAME RECAP
WARRIORS VS. TIMBERWOLVES
The Warriors will play the Timberwolves on Monday for the first of three times this season. Golden State has won six of its last seven meetings with Minnesota, and both teams will go into Monday's contest with injury concerns regarding their starting point guards. Stephen Curry has missed the last four games as he recovers from a sprained right ankle and Minnesota's Ricky Rubio is out for the season with a torn ACL in his left knee. The Timberwolves have lost four out of their last five games, and the Warriors will be looking to a snap a three-game skid of their own.
JEFFERSON MAKES HIS WARRIORS DEBUT
Richard Jefferson had nine points, seven rebounds and three assists in his Warriors debut on Saturday. The veteran swingman struggled with his shot during his 38 minutes on the floor, but that's not a cause for concern for Head Coach Mark Jackson: "He’ll be fine, he’s going to be fine. Missed some shots, a little bit out of sync, but he’s going to be fine. We are not worried about him. We know exactly who he is."
Injuries:Warriors - Stephen Curry (mild sprain, right ankle) is day-to-day. Andrew Bogut (left ankle fracture) is out. Timberwolves - Ricky Rubio (torn ACL, left knee) is out. Michael Beasley (sprained toe) is questionable.
