Wolves 108, Warriors 121

From Rick Alonzo/Pioneer Press:
The Timberwolves trailed by 40 points heading into the fourth quarter Sunday against the Golden State Warriors in what was one of their worst performances of this disappointing season...

By the time the fourth quarter started, Wittman found himself challenging the players to bring the deficit under 20. That's about all they could try to do en route to a 121-108 defeat that was so lopsided, Wittman searched for positives.

Team record: 32-48

Game injuries:
Wolves forward Craig Smith can't catch a break. He developed a lump on his forehead Sunday after taking an elbow from Andris Biedrins. Add that to his bloodshot left eye from getting poked in a game last week, and it's a scary sight...

Mark Madsen tweaked a hamstring, and that's why he didn't play in the second half against Golden State, Wittman said. Rashad McCants banged a knee in the game and played just four minutes in the second half. Marko Jaric did not play for the second consecutive game because of a hand injury.
