After a slow start, the Warriors took a big lead. The Wolves woke up late, made it a game, but ultimately the Warriors held on for a 106-98 victory. It was the second straight victory for Golden State (5-4), and its third straight over the Timberwolves. Six Warriors players scored in double figures, including two off the bench. Golden State got 18 points each from rookie Harrison Barnes and David Lee, 17 from Stephen Curry and 15 from Carl Landry. The Timberwolves, who lost at home for the second time in three days, got 22 points off the bench from rookie Alexey Shved, 23 from Derrick Williams, 18 from Andrei Kirilenko and 14 from Dante Cunningham. Just like Wednesday, a Wolves team that appeared to be out of the game came alive late. Friday, it started with just under eight minutes to go. The Warriors led 90-76 whe...
