The Minnesota Timberwolves will aim to extend their winning streak to six games on Sunday night when they visit the Golden State Warriors for the first of two consecutive contests in San Francisco.
The Timberwolves also will play the Warriors on Tuesday night before concluding their five-game trip with stops in Phoenix (Wednesday) and New Orleans (Saturday).
Minnesota began its trek with a 117-110 victory over the San Antonio Spurs on Friday.
Karl-Anthony Towns collected 29 points and 12 rebounds and Anthony Edwards added 28 to pace the Timberwolves. The two combined to make 20 shots from the floor and 12 of 15 attempts from the free-throw line.
While Finch was quick to present a verbal bouquet toward Towns, he also gave his team a word of warning after the Timberwolves saw their 16-point lead trimmed to six in just under a two-minute stretch during the fourth quarter.
Although the Timberwolves are riding a five-game winning streak, the Warriors won five in a row earlier this season. They have since lost three of their past four games.
Stephen Curry scored 30 points in Golden State’s 118-110 setback to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday. He made four 3-pointers, marking the 10th time in as many games that he has reached that total.
Former Timberwolves small forward Andrew Wiggins added 13 points, five rebounds and three assists for Golden State.
Wiggins, who is averaging 11 points per game, still is struggling from 3-point range, however. He went 1-for-4 from beyond the arc on Saturday and is 4-for-24 on the season — a 16.7 percent clip. For his career, he is shooting 35.2 percent from long distance.
