However, Karl Anthony-Towns and the Minnesota Timberwolves proved to be too much for the beat-up Golden State Warriors, beating them 109-103.

Towns finished with a team-high 31 points to complement a game-high 16 rebounds for the Timberwolves, who were playing a sixth consecutive game without injured Jimmy Butler.

Iggy is averaging 18.8 FanDuel points per game this season.

Breaking down the NCAA tourney — March Madness
Auburn won just two of its final four games after losing the SEC's top shot blocker, Anfernee McLemore, to an ankle injury. Purifoy and Wiley were ruled out due to eligibility concerns on November 2 and have not appeared in a game this season.

Jazz 116, Pelicans 99: Ricky Rubio had 30 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists, and visiting Utah overcame Anthony Davis' first career triple-double for a victory over New Orleans that extended the Jazz's winning streak to six. The win snaps a three-game losing streak for the Timberwolves, who were dangerously close to falling out of the playoffs in the close 3-10 seed race in the Western Conference. Rudy Gobert added 19 points and 16 rebounds, and Joe Ingles scored 20 for Utah, which has won 11 straight on the road. Durant finished with 39 points, but went just 11 for 32 from the field.

Derrick Rose made his Minnesota Timberwolves debut Sunday. Wiggins in particular was more aggressive than he's been lately, including a pull-up jumper just before the third-quarter buzzer that tied the game at 84. Curry, Patrick McCaw (non-displaced fracture, left wrist) and Jordan Bell (right ankle sprain) were already in Oakland with team trainer Chelsea Lane.

Warriors: West was scheduled for examination by a dermatologist on Sunday, coach Steve Kerr said, before the next assessment about his return could be made. The Warriors return home to play the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday.
