NBA Betting: Golden State within Striking Distance of Bulls’ Record

After a tough loss to the Spurs, can the Warriors avoid first losing streak of the season? Golden State vs Minnesota live at 00:00 GMT.

The Warriors are in top spot in the Western Conference, but they were dealt a blow at the hands of the second place San Antonio Spurs (59-10) on Sunday, losing their seventh game of the season. This loss was one of the worst games for NBA MVP Steph Curry, who was not his regular self, shooting 4 of 18 and 1 of 12 from beyond three-point range for a total of 14 points. The Warriors shot only 37.8 percent, led by Klay Thompson with 15 points.

The Spurs dominated the Warriors in the fourth quarter, using Tim Duncan to battle the smaller Golden State lineup. The Spurs are now just three games back of first place in the NBA, which was undoubtedly a wake-up call to Steve Kerr’s team. To make matters worse, the Warriors will need to face the Spurs twice in the final week of the NBA regular season.  

That was then, and the Timberwolves are now, which should not be much of a contest, if Curry and Thompson get back into their shooting groove. The last time they met, Curry nailed 15 of 15 shots and was 8 of 13 from downtown to finish with 46 points back in November. The Timberwolves are severe underdogs to win the game, even at home in Minnesota.

After tonight, Golden State will finish the season with 9 home games out of their last 12 altogether.
