Stephen Curry, the reigning MVP, scored 46 points as the Golden State Warriors improved to a 10-0 record courtesy a 129-116 victory against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Thursday night. It was just another day in the office for the mighty, unstoppable Warriors.
Curry scored 21 points in the first quarter alone, exposing the Timberwolves perimeter defense that sorely missed Ricky Rubio, who continues to nurse a hamstring injury. Curry went 15/25 from the field including 8/13 from deep in yet another breathtaking performance. Curry, during his third 40-point game this season, finished with a tally of 46 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists and 2 steals,
Draymond Green had a near triple-double performance, with 23 points, 12 assists and 8 rebounds. Again, all five Warriors starters scored in double-digits. Klay Thompson had an off-night, going 3/9 from deep for his 15 points while Harrison Barnes and Festus Ezeli had 14 and 10 points respectively.
Karl-Anthony Towns continued to prove why he’s the No 1 overall draft pick with 17 points and 11 rebounds. Andrew Wiggins had 19 points and 5 assists, while Zach LaVine finished with 13 points.
In typical Warriors fashion, the reigning NBA champions shot 18/38 from beyond the arc. In comparison, the young Timberwolves squad managed just 3/9.
The Warriors are only the fourth defending champion to start a season with 10 consecutive victories.
