Wolves-Golden State game preview

  • Updated: April 14, 2014 - 12:39 AM

9:30 p.m. at Golden State • Oracle Arena • FSN/NBA-TV, 830-AM

Preview: The Warriors are 49-31 after losing 119-117 overtime at Portland on Sunday night. Before that, they had won four of five. They are sixth in the Western Conference — a half-game ahead of seventh-place Dallas — and are aimed at a first-round playoff series against the third-seeded Los Angeles Clippers. … This is the last of three games between the teams this season; it’s 1-1, each team losing at home.

Players to watch: Golden State All-Star guard Stephen Curry scored 47 points Sunday and delivered his fourth triple-double of the season — 30 points, 12 assists, 10 rebounds — in Friday’s 112-95 victory over the Lakers in Los Angeles. That’s the most triple-doubles by a Warriors player since Wilt Chamberlain had five in 1963-64. Curry is aimed at joining Tim Hardaway as the only players in franchise history who averaged 23 points and eight assists in a season. He’s the first Warrior voted an All-Star starter since Latrell Sprewell in 1995 and ranks first in the league in three-pointers made, fifth in assists and seventh in scoring. … Wolves star Kevin Love has three triple-doubles this season.

Injuries: Wolves F Kevin Love (elbow) and G Kevin Martin (foot) both played Sunday at Sacramento and are expected to play. C Nikola Pekovic (foot) is doubtful, G Shabazz Muhammad (sprained knee MCL) and F Chase Budinger (sprained ankle) are out of the season’s remaining two games. Warriors C Festus Ezeli (knee surgery) is out.

JERRY ZGODA
