Warriors' Andre Iguodala ruled out vs

The Trail Blazers had 14 offensive rebounds and 46 total rebounds, while the Warriors had six and 33, respectively.

On March 5, a Monday night game against the Los Angeles Lakers, Lillard scored 39 points, including 19 alone in the fourth quarter, to single-handedly win the game for his team 108-103. One of Boston's biggest advantages was getting to the charity stripe.

Surely, a Warriors team with Durant as the centrepiece instead of Curry would also have been built for success.

This showdown figures to be a shootout as a pair of the league's best offenses go head-to-head. Just think of it this way: Curry brings Golden State to an elite level, and Durant widens gap from the rest of the elite teams.

Even though Steph Curry is set to miss another game for the Warriors, will Golden State's matchup with the Timberwolves today in Minnesota still turn into a shootout? The degree of difficulty was exponentially increased when the Warriors lost Stephen Curry to injury against the Spurs, joining the ever-increasing list of wounded Warriors that now includes Curry, Andre Iguodala, David West, Patrick McCaw, and Jordan Bell.

Timberwolves: Towns had his NBA-best 57th double-double of the season. At the root of Golden State's recent seven-game winning streak was renewed defensive intensity. Minnesota was, meanwhile, 6-20 (30.0 percent). He shot 68.8% from the field, making 11 of his 16 attempts (2/2 from the line, 6/9 from three-point range).

Timberwolves injury report: SG Jimmy Butler (right knee surgery) is out.

The 2015 and 2016 NBA MVP is now fifth in the league for points per game with 26.8 and second for three-pointers made with 209, sitting behind a stellar James Harden of the Houston Rockets.

This was Rose's first on-court action since February 7 for Cleveland, against Minnesota.

The Timberwolves rank fifth in points in the paint per game (48.5) while the Warriors rank 24th in points allowed in the paint per game (47.0).

It's not that these are definitive moments in time that will represent the turning point on a dynasty just waiting for its 4th straight NBA Finals and 3rd overall championship. The Warriors have a 8-2 record during their last 10-game stretch and are 25-8 in away games this season.

Twenty minutes after losing their second straight game for just the second time this season, Warriors players filtered out from the showers.
