Curry’s 46 Lifts Warriors Over Wolves
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Stephen Curry scored 46 points, 21 in the first quarter, and the Golden State Warriors improved to 10-0 on the season with a 129-116 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Thursday night.
Curry hit 15 of 25 shots, including 8 of 13 3-pointers, in another breathtaking performance for the reigning MVP. Draymond Green had 23 points, 12 assists and eight rebounds for the Warriors, who are the fourth defending champion to start the season with at least 10 straight wins.
Karl-Anthony Towns had 17 points and 11 rebounds and Andrew Wiggins scored 19 points for the Timberwolves (4-4), who have lost all four home games this season. Ricky Rubio missed his second straight game with a strained left hamstring.
The Warriors went 18 for 38 from 3-point range while Minnesota was just 3 for 9.
