Blazers troll themselves over not drafting Kevin Durant

The one thing about Golden State though - they do let teams stick around, and Minnesota is talented enough to stick around. He said so in an interview on TNT after the Warriors victory over the Timberwolves on Thursday, when he logged his second triple-double of the season. They beat us last game, so we're looking forward to seeing what we've got this time around.

The Timberwolves didn't have their best player, All-Star guard Jimmy Butler.

Jamal Crawford nearly single-handedly kept the Wolves in the game for much of the fourth quarter, finishing with 21 points in 25 minutes and getting his squad back within eight with under five minutes remaining in the game.

With Butler sitting out, the Warriors took advantage of poor perimeter defense. He even had an extremely confident pull up 3-pointer that swished through like he hadn't been shooting 22 percent from behind the arc for the season - just 14 percent since the beginning of December.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr argued that "Kevin offensively was pushing the ball like insane in transition". "They can win a lot of games without being totally dialed in and without defending at a high level". Karl-Anthony Towns beasted any and all Warrior takers down low to the tune of 31 points and 11 rebounds.

Curry, Durant and Thompson made 16 of their first 21 three-point attempts combined and Thompson made his first six and didn't miss a single one until nine minutes remained in the game. The moves come amid a 3-10 skid that has dropped the Central Division leaders to 27-19, just two games ahead of the Pacers. Minnesota, hungry to add a bullet point to its resume for Western-Conference contention, quickly inched back within five before Thompson drained four three-pointers within the span of 2 minutes, 30 seconds. "I think it will be really good for our guys to be face-to-face with some officials out of the arena, maybe on the practice court, for real conversation, a chance to get to know them, personalize the relationship a little bit".

Then Durant got the $15,000 fine from the league, something he had said he deserved after saying that referee James Williams targeted him in Tuesday's game.

Needless to say, All-Star Saturday is a day off for Durant so he can prepare himself for Sunday.

"In many ways Steph is our franchise", Kerr said beforehand.

Woakes, who has chipped in with four wickets and 92 runs in the series, added: 'Trevor [Bayliss] and Morgy have mentioned it. Most of the rotation however was with bowlers, which is unusual given batting is where the line-up has struggled most.

The Warriors led by 11 points late in the first quarter, by 14 early in the second quarter and by 12 at halftime.

Oklahoma City's Carmelo Anthony was also celebrating after surpassing the 25,000-point mark as the Thunder overcame the Detroit Pistons 121-108. He drove past the three-point line, stopped 18 feet away from the hoop and hit a jumper while drawing a foul from behind.

Towns was great all game long, save for a couple missed free throws and a couple of missed bunnies at the rim. "But 14,000, that's a pretty cool number".

As for Curry? He simply had another game that explains how he joined Paul Arizin, Rick Barry, Wilt Chamberlain and Chris Mullin to join the 14,000 scoring club.
