Wolves Fall To Warriors, 110-101
OAKLAND, Calif. -- The Minnesota Timberwolves continue to wait patiently for another losing season to come to a close, losing 110-101 to the playoff-bound Golden State Warriots on Saturday.
Minnesota was led by rookie Zach LaVine, who scored a career-high 37 points including going 6-of-10 from three-point range.
Fellow rookie Anrdew Wiggins scored 17 and center Justin Hamilton notched a double-double, scoring 12 points and nabbing 10 rebounds.
But the Wolves could not stop the Western Conference's best team. The "Splash Brothers" tandem of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson combined to score 57 points for the Warriors in the win.
Golden State's 65 wins has them comfortably in first place in the West, leading by 11 games.
With the loss, the Wolves tie the New York Knicks for the worst record in the NBA at 16-64.
