For moneyline bets, the line is Minnesota Timberwolves: +175, Golden State Warriors: -210 and 78.2% have picked the Golden State Warriors to win the game. Stephen Curry played a critical role in that victory, but suffered an ankle injury in the opening minutes of the game against the Spurs, a development that would have a significant impact on the team's performance throughout the rest of the week.
Thompson sprained his right thumb during the game, the Warriors said, and backup Nick Young bruised his left hip.
Towns countered with a short jumper for a three-point lead, and after Durant (game-high 39 points) missed a potential game-tying 3-pointer, the Minnesota big man snatched the rebound from his own short miss and laid it in, giving the Timberwolves a 108-103 advantage with just 37.5 seconds remaining. The 29-year-old is expected to return to action on Wednesday against the Los Angeles Lakers.
Center David West, who will miss his fourth straight game Sunday with a right-arm cyst, has returned to the Bay Area for treatment and is set to meet with a dermatologist.
"Without Steph there, Quinn is asked to do a lot, so it's definitely a different dynamic when you have, [as] opposed to Steph Curry, when you're having Quinn Cook".

KD says it's been "fun" trying to figure things out with a patchwork roster. He sat out the dubs' last two games due to an ankle injury, so he needs to rest so he can help the Warriors defend their National Basketball Association title during the 2018 playoffs.
"(I'm) not very concerned in terms of it being a major injury or something that is going to prevent him from playing in the playoffs or anything like that", Payne said in an interview with 95.7 The Game.
While the Warriors have plenty of excuses for their recent struggles, they need to start winning again if they have any hope of catching Houston for the number one seed.
"Steph is the system here, and he's been a part of this since Steve Kerr's been here".
Over the years, the two-time champion has done a good job of staying healthy. Victor Oladipo scored 27 points and Myles Turner added 19 with a team-high 10 rebounds in Indiana's fifth win in six games. We have a system in place that maximizes everybody's strengths. Hey, when you're considered the "greatest of all time", you can't really just take an Uber.
