The Golden State Warriors beat the Minnesota Timberwolves, 142-110, in a preseason game in China on Sunday. Stephen Curry put on an absolute show for the fans in Shanghai, scoring 40 points on 20 shots in 31 minutes. He also added 8 assists, 6 rebounds and 3 steals.
It’s only preseason, but what a statement. The Timberwolves added Jimmy Butler and Jeff Teague and are hoping to make a big leap this season, but this game was a reminder that… well, what’s the point? The Warriors are destroyers of worlds. This was a game that meant nothing to anyone beyond the ticket buyers and the Warriors were pure fire.
