Klay Thompson talked about the magical night when he scored 37 points in the third quarter.
“Hopefully I can have a similar performance like that in the future, but that record might stand for a while. That was a very surreal moment for me.” pic.twitter.com/lWsiUBHp272:11 AM

Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
It’s wild when you think about the career and success Draymond has built on and off the court from the 2nd round, especially since he isn’t a prolific scorer. We’ve come to expect him to do stuff like this and even more when really it’s rare. Someone should do a book on it – 2:01 AM

After the final buzzer sounded on the Warriors’ 124-115 win over the Mavericks, at least a half-dozen Timberwolves players took turns embracing Andrew Wiggins at mid-court. On the night he was named an All-Star starter, Wiggins had 19 points on 7-for-12 shooting (5-for-8 from 3). – 12:29 AM
Carl Steward @stewardsfolly
When Warriors make 21 3s, you’re not winning even with a strong effort, and Minnesota was very strong. Edwards is absolutely scary and Towns is as effective as he’s ever been ad a pro. Nice win for GSW. – 12:29 AM

Klay Thompson is starting to look genuinely comfortable out there. And right on cue, Jordan Poole is finding his groove off the bench. This team should be in good shape whenever Draymond Green comes back. – 12:19 AM

T-Wolves a team the Warriors might want to avoid in the playoffs. Winning tonight because they have a 17-7 advantage in 3s but still haven’t put them away. – 12:11 AM

Really good 1st half from KAT. Really bad defensive plan by Golden State on KAT.
To KAT’s credit, he is literally batting 100% in games against teams who think they can guard him with single coverage. Not batting 100% when they bring doubles on the catch. – 11:15 PM

Halftime at Chase Center, the @Minnesota Timberwolves lead 61-57.

Dane Moore @DaneMooreNBA
23 first half points for Karl-Anthony Towns, and on only one made 3.
I thought that was KAT’s best and smartest half of the season — asserting his dominance, creating space, with footwork finesse, not with his arms.
That, *that* was superstar play.
Wolves 61, Warriors 57 – 11:10 PM
Connor Letourneau @Con_Chron
HALFTIME: Warriors trail the Timberwolves, 61-57. Kevon Looney had 4 first-half fouls, which is big considering that Golden State doesn’t have any other palatable options on Karl-Anthony Towns. So far, Towns has had his way with 23 points on 9-for-15 shooting to go with 7 boards. – 11:08 PM

The most poise on the interior we’ve seen from KAT all year. No voltage.
Phenomenal first quarter, maybe his best of the season.

Early possessions tonight signal Golden State’s main defensive priority tonight is to take away Anthony Edwards (loading up strong side on every Ant catch).
The only player other than KAT in a Wolves game that I can ever remember being the main defensive priority is Jimmy Butler – 10:16 PM

Criticism of Wiggins starting — and for the record, I voted for Gobert — ignores the fact that Golden State has unlocked Wiggins as a high level scorer/defender. He’s no longer just a big, tradable contract — he’s a 26-year old part of the Warriors core – 7:27 PM

Kellan Olson @KellanOlson
The broken part of this formula that Wiggins (I assume) got in off is that if you get zero media votes, you technically still get 6th or whatever if only 5 other guys got votes. A top 3/4 fan vote spot can get you far. I’m assuming that’s what happened. – 7:22 PM

Why is Steph Curry in worst shooting slump of his career? foxsports.com/stories/nba/wh…6:42 PM
Vivek Jacob @vivekmjacob
My imaginary NBA All-Star starters vote:
EAST
Darius Garland
Fred VanVleet
DeMar DeRozan
Giannis Antetokounmpo
Joel Embiid
WEST
Steph Curry
Ja Morant
LeBron James
Nikola Jokic
Rudy Gobert
*IMO the logical solution with no KD is to slide DeMar up to the FC where he belongs. – 6:38 PM

Sixers health tidbits from Doc Rivers:
-Seth Curry (left ankle) probably couldn’t have played even if this was a playoff game. Will see where he’s at before next game.
-There’s been discussion about a rest night for Joel Embiid, who’s pushed back against that a few times – 5:59 PM

Doc Rivers says Seth Curry has some ways to go. He said even if today was a playoff game, he’s not sure if he could’ve played. He’s still dealing with left ankle soreness. #Sixers5:55 PM
