Timberwolves Vs. Warriors Final: Minnesota Fends Off Golden State Surge, Wins 97-93

The Minnesota Timberwolves squandered most of their 14-point halftime lead but recovered in time to notch a 97-93 win in Oakland over the Golden State Warriors on Monday.

The win snapped a three-game skipped for the Timberwolves, who are now 23-24 on the season.

Minnesota led by 14 at the break but was then outscored by 10, 32-22, in the third. Kevin Love, who had his 39th double-double on the season, helped stabilize things, going for 12 fourth-quarter points. He finished with 36 points and 17 rebounds, and hit 3 of 5 from downtown.

Minnesota's second-leading-scorer was Luke Ridnour, who had 11. Anthony Tolliver added 10.

Golden State was paced by David Lee's 25. Richard Jefferson, recently acquired from San Antonio, had 19 off the bench.

The Timberwolves are in the midst of a brutal stretch of the schedule. Monday's was their fifth-straight road game, and there are two more on tap -- against San Antonio and Oklahoma City, no less. After that Minnesota returns home for a game with Denver before playing four of the next five on the road.
