Rudy Gobert when asked about how inconsistent mentalities has been an issue for this Wolves team thus far:
“Tonight, I will say, tonight, I think tonight, I will take the blame for that because I didn’t feel like I was. I was a step slow on everything, offensively, defensively.” – 8:11 PM
Chuck Cooperstein @coopmavs
Mavs hoping history repeats itself re Hardaway. Go back to 19-20. Hardaway spent 1st 13 coming off bench and struggled. When Seth Curry got hurt, He was moved into the lineup vs GS & never looked back
Off Bench:10.2 pts/34.4%FG/29.5% 3pt.

Here’s Austin Rivers’ answer tonight when asked about how this Wolves team can add more physicality to their identity:
(It does sound like Rivers will be in the rotation now more consistently — due to injuries, the need for perimeter defense and more physicality.) pic.twitter.com/YA8d5AWaq77:55 PM

Dane Moore @DaneMooreNBA
The conversation in the locker room with the media for all the players who spoke was about teams, not limited to but like Golden State tonight, trying to make the Wolves with their two centers run in transition defense.

Green called the technical he got for celebrating toward the end of the game “crazy.” He said the refs told him he was standing on the court, but he thought he was still in the corner, and believes four of his techs are “questionable”. He appreciated Curry having his back. – 7:15 PM
Kendra Andrews @kendra__andrews
Green on Jonathan Kuminga’s growth, particularly over the past two games: “It’s been beautiful. We’ve 100% felt and seen the impact. What it boils down to is energy, effort and attention to detail. He’s impacted the last two games in major ways without shooting the basketball.” – 7:12 PM
Jon Krawczynski @JonKrawczynski
Rudy Gobert: “Tonight, I will take the blame for (slow start) because I … was a step slow on everything, offensively, defensively. It was just one of those games, you know, for me, I gotta be better than that. To set the tone before I can say anything else.” – 7:10 PM
Kendra Andrews @kendra__andrews
Steve Kerr said it was the Warriors’ pace that pushed them to their 47-point first quarter.
Green agreed and said it was because they’re more comfortable with their offensive patters and, more importantly, their defense is stronger and is allowing them to push off of misses. – 7:09 PM

📅 On this day in 1963, the @Golden State Warriors Wilt Chamberlain missed his first shot from the field, then made his last 18 in a row in a win over the Knicks.

Draymond Green on Jonathan Kuminga’s impact in recent games: “It’s beautiful. You felt the impact. I know we’ve 100% felt and seen the impact. And the reality is, what it boils down to is energy, effort and attention to detail when you’re a young guy.” – 7:04 PM

After shooting 60% from deep in the first quarter, Warriors went 2-for-12 from 3 in the second quarter. They’re shooting just shy of 60% from the field. – 4:43 PM
CJ Holmes @CjHolmes22
Warriors lead the Wolves 76-56 at the break. Probably the best half of basketball they’ve played all season at both ends. Four players in double figures, led by Stephen Curry (15). Cooled off to 59.6% shooting in the second quarter. Held Minnesota to 42%. Led by 26 at one point. – 4:43 PM
Dane Moore @DaneMooreNBA
Warriors up 20 on the Wolves at half — really testing the Wolves’ ability to defend (in both the halfcourt and in transition) and run offense that generates good looks. – 4:43 PM

Warriors up 76-56 at halftime
Steph: 15 points
Poole: 14 points

Jordan Poole is a +11 off the bench – 4:42 PM
Kendra Andrews @kendra__andrews
Warriors lead the Timberwolves 76-56 at halftime, shooting 60% from the floor, 36.4% from 3.
Golden State took their foot off the gas a bit in the second but still hold a comfortable 20-point lead. Wiggins, Curry, Draymond Green and Jordan Poole are all in double-digit scoring. – 4:41 PM

This might be remembered as the weekend the Warriors clicked in. They were great v. Jazz and are on another level today v. Wolves – 4:32 PM

Really good minutes from Kuminga. – 4:27 PM
Jack Winter @ArmstrongWinter
Kerr said Kuminga’s offense would come as long as he remains committed on D. Look how many he efforts he makes here.
Help contest on Ant’s euro-step. Fights for DREB forcing miss, then high-points board.
Quickly into DHO w/Poole, clearing side for iso attack.

7 assists in 9 minutes for Draymond Green is absurd. Almost as absurd as Steph Curry leading the team with 6 rebounds after the first. A 6’2 monster on the glass this season 😆 #dubnation4:11 PM

By far the best start for the Warriors this season. They lead the Timberwolves 47-27 after one. It’s the most points Golden State has scored in a first quarter this season.

Nowell leads Minnesota in scoring with 8 points. – 4:03 PM
Jack Winter @ArmstrongWinter
Curry, Wiggins couldn’t have started better, but Draymond again set tone offensively. Pushing every chance, making extra pass, playing .5 basketball.
Both Green finishes came because Dray perfectly leveraged Steph’s threat, attacking KAT on perimeter with Gobert on bench. pic.twitter.com/DbsSJUHFJf4:02 PM

Jaylen Nowell by far the best player for the Wolves today – 4:02 PM

Wolves defense predictably struggling with Warriors’ off-ball screening game and the pace Golden State is playing with.
That’s the defensive book on this team: run em as much as you can, make em move off-ball when you have to play in the halfcourt. – 3:46 PM

Some Andrew Wiggins shooting stats to know before today’s Warriors vs. T-Wolves game
Best in Minnesota: FG% (45.9%), 3P% (35.6%), eFG% (48.4%), TS% (54.3)
This season: FG% (49.8%), 3P% (43.8%), eFG% (59.7%), TS% (60.9) – 2:24 PM
Jon Krawczynski @JonKrawczynski
Jaden McDaniels (illness) is a gametime decision, but sounds like trending toward not playing, per Finch. Would mean more minutes for Austin Rivers – 1:51 PM

KAT has to better fight the urge to guard opposing 5 when he’s on the floor with Gobert.
It must be hard given KAT has guarded guys like Plumlee forever, but Gobert has to be on the non-stretch big every possession possible. KAT has to pick up Washington unless it’s an emergency pic.twitter.com/33ERnlM1kU10:23 AM
