The Minnesota Timberwolves are trying to end their three-game losing streak and get a step closer to .500 which they fell behind by five games for the first time this season after their last loss. At the half, they lead the similarly struggling Warriors by 12, 51-39.
As he has done all season for the Timberwolves, Kevin Love is taking charge, leading all scorers with 16 points on 7-for-18 shooting. He also has nine rebounds and three assists. Nikola Pekovic has added 10 and Wayne Ellington has seven off the bench.
David Lee leads the way for the Warriors with 14 points and Richard Jefferson has 10 off the bench.
The Warriors are shooting at a higher percentage than the Timberwolves thus far, but the T-Wolves have eight extra shot attempts from the field and another eight extra attempts from the free throw line. Minnesota is outrebounding the Warriors 30-15, including 9-1 on the offensive glass.
