Stephen Curry caught the ball in the corner, launched a 3-pointer and confidently turned to the Minnesota Timberwolves’ bench. Despite his off shooting night, he didn’t need to look to know this one was going down.
After scoring just two points in the first half, Curry uncorked a 12-point quarter during the game’s decisive stretch. Curry’s 3-pointer crested a 13-0 run and a third quarter in which the Warriors took control of Wednesday’s 123-111 win over the Timberwolves at Chase Center.
With help from rookie center James Wiseman (25 points), forward Kelly Oubre Jr. (20 points) and a 60-point effort from the bench, Curry finished with 16 points as the Warriors (10-8) defeated a Timberwolves (4-13) team without D’Angelo Russell (quad) and Karl-Anthony Towns (health and safety protocol) for the second time in this two-game series.
