This win maybe a highlight for the Warriors. With five guys out that make up most of the scoring punch for the Warriors, the reserves found a way to not only come back from a 21 point deficit but also make a statement.

Shooting 10 less threes and 11 less free throws, somehow the Warriors were able to stifle the Wolves. Led by Charles Jenkins, who played all 48 minutes, his jumper with about 6 minutes left, gave the Warriors their first lead of the game. A series of plays went back and forth before the Warriors were able to gain a cushion to hold off on these charging Wolves. A three pointer by Brandon Rush and an old fashion three point play help deliver the biggest blow for the Wolves as the Warriors held on for a win. It only  a few weeks earlier, that the Warriors had done the same thing to the Wolves, coming back from a 20 point deficit and also winning. Golden State outscored the Wolves in the second half 54-33.

Jenkins led the charge back for the Warriors. He finished the night with 24 points, nine boards and six assists. Klay Thompson had a stat filled night with 17 points, four boards, three assists, two blocks and one steal. Brandon Rush continues his tear off the bench, with 19 boards, nine boards, two assists and one block.
