On the Warriors podcast with Jerry F:
#1 The Minnesota Timberwolves (28-26) De’Angelo Russell got 14 of his 29 points in the fourth quarter at the Target Center in Minneapolis who help pave the way for the Wolves to get a narrow five point win over the Golden State Warriors (26-25) 119-114.
#2 Russell fouled out in overtime and Anthony Edwards took over in the early minute of OT, Edwards who didn’t score in the fourth quarter scored baskets in traffic in the overtime stanza and was big in overcoming Golden State scoring four of his 27 points in the overtime.
#3 Minnesota head coach Chris Finch said it was good to see Russell’s game before he fouled out “We needed it,” Finch said of Edwards. “It was good to see him get to the paint.”
#4 What was also important for the Timberwolves was they gained a half game on Golden State in the Western Conference standings.
#5 The Warriors will not get much rest as they head to Denver for a Thursday night game against the Denver Nuggets a 6:00pm tip. The Nuggets first in the Western Conference and have won seven of their last ten games. Jerry how do you see this match up tonight.
