Warriors defeat Wolves, inch closer to best record

Klay Thompson posted 41 points with three assists, two rebounds, two assists and a blocked shot in Tuesday's 121-107 win against the Timberwolves.

Minnesota, meanwhile, was led by Andrew Wiggins, who scored 24 points on 9-of-20 shooting.

Golden State is the hottest team in the National Basketball Association right now with its 11-game winning streak.

Meanwhile, LeBron James notched his second straight triple-double, Kevin Love scored 28 points and Cleveland warmed up for a big game in Boston by dropping 18 3-pointers in a 122-102 victory against Orlando.

The defending champions also moved into a tie with the Celtics atop the Eastern Conference.

After going all in to pursue the regular-season wins record a year ago, the Warriors are simply playing things differently in 2017.

Golden State hoped to get him back for a few regular season outings, and it looks like they're going to.

The empirical evidence suggests that Durant will affect the team's flow on offense, but that will not keep the Warriors from dominating the West in the playoffs, as their talent and star power will eventually prevail over ball-sharing and offensive schemes. Iguodala made all 4 of his shots and finished with 11 points. During his 17-game absence due to an injury to his left knee, the Warriors have weathered the storm and performed well once Curry assumed his position being the first option on offence. The Warriors scored a season-high 41 fast break points. Hall of Fame Stanford women's coach Tara VanDerveer, fresh off the Final Four and 1,000 career wins, sat courtside with owner Joe Lacob. It's very unclear what his role will be once Kevin Durant returns Saturday, but he's - at the very least - met expectations since being signed in early March.

Minnesota has lost seven of its last 10 games and is just 2-8 against the spread during that stretch.

Golden State is now at 64-14 and San Antonio 60-17 after Tuesday's games.
