(REUTERS) - Although it was a close one, the Golden State Warriors still have no concept of a losing streak this season.
Draymond Green scored 24 points as Golden State rallied from three points down in the final six minutes, beating the Minnesota Timberwolves 109-104 on Monday and avoiding their first back-to-back losses of the season.
Meanwhile, LeBron James had 33 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists, and the Cleveland Cavaliers clinched the Central Division title with a 124-91 victory on Monday night against the Denver Nuggets.
Cleveland (50-20) sealed the fifth division title in team history and also secured its ninth 50-win season.
James registered his second triple-double of the season and the 41st of his career.
Elsewhere, Jeremy Lin scored 29 points, including the go-ahead basket in the final minute, and the Charlotte Hornets rallied from a 23-point deficit to beat the San Antonio Spurs 91-88 on Monday night.
Lin's fallaway jumper with 48.4 seconds remaining gave the Hornets the lead for good at 89-88, then he hit two free throws with 18.3sec left to push the lead to three. The Hornets held on as Patty Mills and Danny Green each missed three-pointers for the Spurs in the closing seconds.
