Golden State Warriors at Minnesota Timberwolves Odds Preview 03/11/18

Karl-Anthony Towns Kevin Garnett

According to oddsmakers from online sportsbook YouWager, the Warriors are 5-point road favorites to knock off the Timberwolves this afternoon.

The Warriors played without Steph Curry, who was kept off the team's road trip to rest his injured right ankle.

Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry (30) walks on the court to shoot free throws during the first half of an NBA basketball game against the San Antonio Spurs in Oakland, Calif., Thursday, March 8, 2018. All of these videos can be found on the Warriors Report on YouTube. The Warriors have so far played 51 games and lost just 16 and hold the second spot on the Western Conference points table. And D-West knows how to play and won a championship with us past year. Anthony Davis had 25 points, 11 rebounds and a career-high 10 blocks in his return from a sprained left ankle that sidelined him for one game. He had 14 points in the fourth period alone, knocking down a floater from the lane with 2:18 to go; a fadeaway with 1:08 remaining; then a layup follow of his own miss with 37.5 seconds left to put the game away.

But the Warriors, who were also missing Andre Iguodala, David West, Patrick McCaw and Jordan Bell, shot just 40.7 percent from the field and lost back-to-back games for only the second time this season.

Broward Health spokeswoman Jennifer Smith said Tuesday that Anthony Borges' condition has now been upgraded to fair. The court is expected to enter a not guilty plea on his behalf, Finkelstein said.

Following Sunday's 109-103 loss to the Timberwolves, Durant told ESPN's Nick Friedell that the Warriors offense felt "weird" without the two-time NBA MVP.

Over the past five years, as he averaged 78.8 games, Curry hushed doubts about those balky ankles.

Klay Thompson had 21 points for the Warriors, who led by as much as 57-45 in the third quarter, but he went 3 for 12 from 3-point range. Minnesota's Nemanja Bjelica had a solid game, leading both teams in scoring with 30 points on 11-for-16 shooting. The Wolves are now 39-29, sitting in a tie for fifth in the conference with Oklahoma City, and are 1.5 games up on the eighth place Clippers. Golden State covered as a 13-point favorite and the game finished with a total of 239 points, which was 9.5 points above the projected point total of 229.5 points.
