MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (AP) Jarrett Jack had 23 points and eight assists to rally the Golden State Warriors to a 100-99 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday.
David Lee had 22 points and 13 rebounds for the Warriors, who trailed by 16 in the first quarter before Jack jumpstarted the offense off the bench as he has all season. Carl Landry added 19 points and nine rebounds off the bench for Golden State, which has won three in a row following a six-game losing streak.
Derrick Williams had 23 points and 12 rebounds for the Timberwolves, who had a chance to win it in the final seconds. But Luke Ridnour's mad dash down the court ended with a floater that was off the mark, and the Warriors escaped.
Nikola Pekovic had 21 points and eight rebounds and Ricky Rubio had 16 points, 11 assists, eight rebounds and six steals for Minnesota.
