Warriors Defeat Timberwolves (123-110) For Sixth Straight Victory, Improve To 10-1
The Warriors survived a 48-point explosion from Anthony Edwards to improve to a league-best 10-1 last night. Andrew Wiggins went off for 35 points, including this nasty poster dunk over his former teammate Karl Anthony Towns, and Stephen Curry contributed 25 points, 5 rebounds, and 6 assists to pace the Dubs.
It’s no surprise that the Warriors have improved compared to last year. But nobody expected them to dominate in this fashion. They’re currently scoring the most points per game in the league at nearly 116 a game, and also boast the top-rated defense as well (99.8). While a major part of the success has been due to the brilliance of Stephen Curry, his deep supporting cast featuring players like Jordan Poole, Gary Payton II, and a returning Andre Iguodala has given Golden State a newfound depth that they haven’t had since their 2016 campaign where they won a record-breaking 73 games.
The scariest part? They’re doing this all without fellow splash brother Klay Thompson, who is finally nearing his return after being sidelined for over two years due to multiple injuries. The rest of the league better look out, because it looks like the Warriors are officially back.
