Thursday January 25, the Minnesota Timberwolves arrive at Oracle Arena to play the Golden State Warriors. The Wolves beat the Clippers on Monday and lost to the Blazers on Wednesday.
Golden State has lost just twice in their past 10 games and have been on the road a lot recently. Their last outing was against the Knicks at home. Often the first game back from a prolonged road trip is a trap game but the Warriors were able to come back after a shaky first quarter to capture an easy win.
Last season, the squads played four times with the Warriors winning three of the four contests. Moreover, Golden State has won 18 of the past 21 meetings. The Warriors hold the all-time record having bested the Timberwolves 63 of their 107 matches.
The teeter totter back and forth between the Wolves and Spurs continues. With the loss to Portland it drops Minnesota back into fourth. Prior to the loss wins over the Raptors and Clippers had pushed them ahead of San Antonio. What made these wins more impressive was Minnesota accomplished this without the benefit of Jimmy Butler or Jamal Crawford.
Both Jimmy Butler and Karl-Anthony Towns will play in the All-Star Game. Interestingly it was Andrew Wiggins who blew up scoring 40 points against the Clippers and led the team again with 24 against the Blazers. Yet, Wiggins is the player who’ll be on vacation during the All-Star Game.
Entering the match the Wolves are on the second night of a back-to-back series. Jamal Crawford returned vs. the Blazers, but Butler missed his third consecutive game and is questionable for the match at Golden State. .
Golden State Warriors
Kevin Durant dished a career high 14 assists in the win over the Knicks, but may have increased that total were it not for getting tossed from the game. This was Durant’s fourth ejection and 10th technical foul this season.
It didn’t stop Durant post game from letting fly about referee James Williams specifically saying he (Williams) was looking for him in the second half and that these type of situations is why the players are unhappy with the officials this season.
Oh to be a fly on the wall for the meeting between the refs and players during the All-Star weekend.
In the win over the Knicks Steph Curry led the way with 32 points along with 7 assists and 6 rebounds. Four others delivered double digit scoring including Durant (14), Zaza Pachulia (13), Draymond Green (12), (and David West (12).
Jordan Bell remains out with swelling in his ankle and likely won’t return to the lineup until February.

Free Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Golden State Warriors NBA Prediction:
The Warriors managed their first game back from a long road trip navigating a slow first quarter and still got the win. Without knowing whether Butler will play makes it difficult to go with the Wolves.
In truth, I doubt even with Butler in the lineup (and no line posted) it would change much. Therefore, it’s an automatic selection to pick the Warriors at Oracle.
