MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Charles Jenkins had 24 points and nine assists while playing all 48 minutes to rally the Golden State Warriors from a 21-point deficit to beat the Minnesota Timberwolves, 93-88, on Sunday night.
Brandon Rush scored 10 of his 19 points in the fourth quarter and also grabbed nine rebounds. Klay Thompson scored 17 points for the Warriors, who snapped an eight-game losing streak.
Nikola Pekovic had 19 points and 16 rebounds, and JJ Barea had 14 points and 12 assists in all 48 minutes for the Timberwolves, who announced earlier that All-Star power forward Kevin Love would not play the final two games of the season because of a concussion.
Jenkins also had six rebounds and the Warriors turned the ball over just nine times while holding the Wolves to 36 percent shooting.
Martell Webster scored 18 points and Anthony Randolph had 14 points, seven boards and five blocks for Minnesota.
The Warriors started rookies Thompson, Jenkins, Jeremy Tyler and Mickell Gladness alongside veteran Richard Jefferson for the fourth straight game, the first time the franchise has done that since it started keeping track of games in 1970-71. The last time any team in the NBA has done that was the 2003 Denver Nuggets.
