Wolves-Golden State game preview

  • Updated: March 18, 2012 - 10:18 PM

Preview: The Wolves already have completed season series with teams such as Houston and Dallas, but this is their first of three meetings in the next month with the Warriors, who now have lost three consecutive games after winning three consecutively before that. Now 18-24, they lost in overtime at Utah on Saturday. ... The Warriors did a major remodel last week when they traded Monta Ellis and Ekpe Udoh to Milwaukee in a five-player deal that brought back injured center Andrew Bogut and Stephen Jackson. They traded Jackson to San Antonio for Richard Jefferson.

Players to watch: Warriors F David Lee, courted by the Wolves in free agency in July 2010, has reached double-doubles in six of his past nine home games and is averaging 22.4 points, 10.4 rebounds and 3.4 assists while shooting 52.9 percent. ... Rookie Klay Thompson, son of former Gophers star Mychal Thompson, has scored in double figures for Golden State in each of the past seven games.

Injuries: Wolves C Nikola Pekovic missed Sunday's game at Sacramento because of a sore ankle and is questionable. Wolves G Ricky Rubio is out for the season with a torn ACL. Warriors C Andrew Bogut (broken ankle) is out, and G Stephen Curry is listed as day-to-day because of a sprained ankle.
