Preview: Wolves at Warriors

The Minnesota Timberwolves (4-11) are back in action on Monday night and will meet the Golden State Warriors (8-8) on the hardwood in San Francisco, California.

The Timberwolves snapped a four-game losing streak with a 120-110 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Saturday night. The team was led by center Naz Reid who tallied a career-high-tying 20 points in the contest. Veteran guard Ricky Rubio stepped into a starting lineup role with teammate D’Angelo Russell sidelined for scheduled rest, and posted nine points, seven rebounds and seven assists.

The Warriors recently went head-to-head with the Sacramento Kings, splitting a back-to-back set 1-1 after a narrow 114-113 loss in game one, and winning 113-105 in game two. Golden State guard Stephen Curry scored a game-high 29 points to go along with six rebounds and three assists.

This is the first time that Minnesota and Golden State will meet following the teams’ February 2020 trade which included Warriors forward Andrew Wiggins and Wolves guard D’Angelo Russell.
