Warriors WrapUp: Golden State rallies to beat T-Wolves 116-108

The Warriors were down 10 entering the fourth quarter against Minnesota on Sunday, but came back to win the thing going away. The victory means that Golden State now has a streak of 111 games without a consecutive loss.

Included below is a link to “Warriors WrapUp” on 95.7 FM The Game, an hour postgame show about the game. Among the topics:

–It was a little bit different recipe for a comeback by Golden State. The start of the fourth quarter, which then led to the middle of the fourth quarter was played without Stephen Curry or Draymond Green on the floor. And it didn’t stop the Warriors from going on a 22-4 run.

Andre Iguodala, Shaun Livingston and David West were all a big part of the rally — along with Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant.

–At 6-18, it’s fair to say the T-Wolves are underachieving. Despite a roster that many believe unique and talented — though young — Minnesota can’t get anything going. Tom Thibodeau is too good of a coach to be getting this kind of result but you can’t help but wonder if there isn’t a disconnect here.

–Can Zach LaVine and Andrew Wiggins play together? Is Ricky Rubio really this bad of a shooter? It’s early but there are a lot of questions about this team.

–Stephen Curry didn’t break out of his 3-point slump, going 2-for-5 from beyond the arc, but he still played a very tidy ballgame on Sunday. Curry finished with 22 points, nine assists and zero turnovers. That zero turnovers was huge, particularly on the heels of the Warriors’ season-high 23-game turnover game against Memphis on Saturday.

On Sunday the Warriors had just nine turnovers as a team, which went a long way toward their comeback win.
