Game Preview: Warriors at Timberwolves - 4/22/12
  • LAST TIME OUT
    Playing with just nine healthy players, the Warriors gave the Rockets all they could handle before ultimately succumbing in a 99-96 loss in Houston on Saturday. Klay Thompson led a gritty Warriors effort with 24 points, Brandon Rush had 19 points and seven rebounds and Charles Jenkins logged 16 points and eight assists in the defeat. FULL GAME RECAP


  • WARRIORS VS. TIMBERWOLVES
    The Warriors will close out their three-game season series with the Timberwolves on Sunday. The teams have split their first two head-to-head matchups, each of which was won by the visiting team. The Warriors have won seven of their last nine games against the Timberwolves and have not lost a season series with Minnesota since the 2004-05 season. Both the Warriors and Timberwolves have had several key players sit out recent games with injuries, and the personnel available to play on each side will be something to watch for as the game approaches.


  • CURRY, BOGUT INJURY UPDATES
    The Warriors have announced that Stephen Curry and Andrew Bogut will each undergo arthroscopic surgery later this week. A timetable for the return to basketball-related activities for Curry and Bogut will be determined following surgery, but both players are expected to be ready for the start of training camp in October. FULL DETAILS


  • BACK-TO-BACK-TO-BACK
    Sunday's matchup will wrap up a three-day, three-game road trip for the Warriors. This is the Warriors first road back-to-back-to-back since April 29-May 1, 1999. Each NBA team has at least one occurrence of three games in three days this season, and the Warriors are the last team to encounter this.


  • RISING TO THE OCCASION
    Injuries to Stephen Curry and Nate Robinson have left Charles Jenkins as the only active point guard on the team in recent contests. Jenkins has responded to the challenge and has 29 assists in the last three games. As a matter of fact, Jenkins had 10-plus assists on both Wednesday and Friday, becoming the only 2011 NBA Draft pick with consecutive games of double-digit assist totals and the only second round pick in Warriors history to accomplish that feat as a rookie.
