New, comments

The Warriors faced the Wolves for the second night in a row, but this time the (summer league) stakes were higher and the outcome was different.

The Golden State Warriors faced a young Minnesota Timberwolves squad for the second night in a row in the 2017 Las Vegas Summer League tournament.

After a dramatic sudden death overtime finish to Tuesday night’s game that sent the Warriors to an 0-3 record, tonight’s contest ended very differently with the Warriors winning 77-69 (in regulation).

Patrick McCaw continued to come up big as a scorer with 26 points and 9 assists. Jordan Bell had a summer league record 16 rebounds.

But the biggest — or at least most surprising — moment of the night was this play by Bryce Alford.

With the win, the Warriors will advance in the tournament to face the Boston Celtics, who are the sixth seed. It will be the Warriors' fourth game in four nights, which is certainly a grueling path through summer league. To find out more information about the tournament structure, please click here.
