OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Stephen Curry had 34 points, eight rebounds and six assists, and the Golden State Warriors overcame the absence of do-everything Draymond Green to beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 115-102 on Saturday night.

Curry shot 13 for 19 with four 3-pointers, while Kevin Durant added 28 points, 10 rebounds, five assists and a career-high six blocked shots. Klay Thompson scored 23 points with four 3s to go with six rebounds for Golden State.

Green sat out a day after bruising his left ankle at Los Angeles in a collision with teammate Ian Clark, who also missed the game after being hit in the throat on the play.

Zach LaVine scored 31 points with five 3s, while Karl-Anthony Towns had 12 of his 18 points in the first quarter on 6-for-10 shooting. He then quieted down and missed five of his next six attempts before a three-point play with 4:03 remaining.
