MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — David Lee had 31 points and eight rebounds, and the Golden State Warriors rallied from a 20-point deficit to top the reeling Minnesota Timberwolves 97-94 on Wednesday night.

Charles Jenkins had 19 points and seven assists and Richard Jefferson scored 13 of 5-of-7 shooting for the Warriors, who snapped a six-game losing streak. They trailed by 20 with less than two minutes to play in the first half, but outscored Minnesota 40-19 over the next eight minutes of game time.


The Warriors led by 10 with seven minutes to play, but the Wolves tied it with 90 seconds to go. Then Jenkins, a former NBA Development League point guard, scored on a driving layup with 20 seconds to go put the Warriors up for good.
