NBA: Warriors fall to Timberwolves, will be without key players against San Antonio

Los Angeles (AFP) - Andrew Wiggins scored 20 of his 24 points in the second half as the Minnesota Timberwolves defeated the Golden State Warriors 103-102 in the National Basketball Association (NBA) on Friday.

Wiggins also made two clutch free throws with 12 seconds left.

Karl-Anthony Towns had 23 points, and Ricky Rubio added 17 points and 13 rebounds as Minnesota won for the eighth time in 12 games.

"We're learning," Rubio said after the Timberwolves beat Golden State for the first time in three games this season. "We're getting experience and these games mean a lot. We just go after it."

Stephen Curry had 26 points for the Warriors, but he was just one of eight from three-point territory.

Klay Thompson led the way with 30 points for Golden State, who have lost four of their past six games.

Curry finished with 26 points to surpass his father, Dell, in NBA career points. Dell scored 12,670 points in his career, while Stephen has 12,682. It is the fourth-highest point total by a father-son duo in league history.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr said after the game that Curry, Draymond Green, Andre Iguodala and Thompson would all rest and would not play in Saturday's game at San Antonio.
