GOLDEN STATE: LAST SEASON: 57-25, lost 4-2 to Toronto in NBA Finals.
COACH: Steve Kerr (sixth season, 322-88).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Stephen Curry (27.3 ppg), G D'Angelo Russell (21.1 with Brooklyn), F Draymond Green (7.4), F Alfonzo McKinnie (4.7), C Kevon Looney (6.3).
KEY LOSSES: G/F Kevin Durant, G Shaun Livingston, G Andre Iguodala, C DeMarcus Cousins, G Quinn Cook.
KEY ADDITIONS: G Russell, C Willie-Cauley Stein, F Robinson III.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: All-Star guards Curry and Russell getting in sync with their communication on the court, which might be a work in progress but they seem to be having fun as they shoot together at practice the way Curry and Durant used to do with good-natured competitions. Curry is the oldest player on the team at 31.
OUTLOOK: The new-look Warriors lost two-time NBA Finals MVP Durant to Brooklyn. After five straight trips to the Finals, they will look to find their way in new Chase Center with the leadership of returning veterans Curry and Green as Klay Thompson works back from left knee surgery after he tore his ACL in a Game 6 Finals loss to the Raptors that clinched Toronto its first title. Thompson's surgery was July 2 and he is expected to be out at least until the All-Star break, leaving Curry and Russell as backcourt mates in the meantime.
MINNESOTA: LAST SEASON: 36-46, finished 11th in Western Conference.
COACH: Ryan Saunders (second season, 17-25 as interim coach last season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Jeff Teague (12.1 ppg), G Andrew Wiggins (18.1), F Jake Layman (7.6), F Robert Covington (14.5), C Karl-Anthony Towns (24.4).
KEY LOSSES: G Derrick Rose, G Tyus Jones, F Taj Gibson, F Dario Saric, F Anthony Tolliver, G Jerryd Bayless, F Luol Deng.
KEY ADDITIONS: Layman, G Jarrett Culver, G Shabazz Napier, G/F Treveon Graham, F Noah Vonleh, F Jordan Bell, G Jaylen Nowell, C Naz Reid.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Towns is as versatile of a big man as there is in the league, but he can't carry the scoring load alone so the pressure will be on Wiggins to take a step forward under Saunders in the second year of his max contract extension carrying a $27 million salary cap hit. Having a healthy Covington, the team's best defender who arrived in the Jimmy Butler trade from the Sixers last season but missed the last 45 games because of a bone bruise on his knee, will be a critical factor. Culver, the sixth overall pick in the draft out of NCAA runner up Texas Tech, ought to provide more of that valuable perimeter defense along with Josh Okogie off the bench. Either of them could crack the starting lineup at some point, too.
OUTLOOK: The Timberwolves have started fresh, yet again, with Saunders, the youngest coach in the league, beneath an overhauled front office headed by new president of basketball operations Gersson Rosas. With Towns and Wiggins, they have a pair of under-25 standouts locked in, and a quiet offseason relative to the rest of the NBA yielded some useful role players in Layman, Vonleh, Bell, Napier and Graham. The first steps are to establish themselves as a far more consistent and efficient team on defense and shooting from the outside. With the Western Conference even more loaded than before, though, it will be tough to measure progress in the standings. Increasing their win total will be a tall order.
Timberwolves out to take advantage of struggling Warriors

The Minnesota Timberwolves are next in line in the payback department as they host the undermanned Golden State Warriors on Friday night.

Participants in five straight trips to the NBA Finals, the Warriors are 7-3 in the past 10 games against the Timberwolves.

But this year's version of the Warriors resembles recent editions in name only, as Golden State will take the court for the first of three head-to-heads this season without injured Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green, on top of having lost Kevin Durant, Andre Iguodala, DeMarcus Cousins and Shaun Livingston in the offseason.

Those seven players combined for 121 of the 130 points in an overtime loss at Minnesota in the Warriors' most recent visit in March. The other nine points came from Kevon Looney, who also is currently injured, and Quinn Cook, another who bolted in free agency.

The Warriors hope to get one of their key newcomers back for the middle game of a three-game trip, one that began with a 129-112 loss at Houston on Wednesday.

Golden State coach Steve Kerr is calling D'Angelo Russell a "gametime decision" as the point guard attempts to end a three-game absence due to a sprained ankle.

Two-way player Ky Bowman, an undrafted rookie from Boston College, has averaged 37.3 minutes in Russell's absence and earned the extended playing time, contributing 14.3 points and 5.3 assists to an offense that burned Portland and Houston in the past two games for an average of 119.5 points.

Unfortunately for the Warriors, they seem to miss the defense of Thompson and Green more than the offense of Curry and Durant. Golden State ranks near the bottom of the NBA in several key defensive categories, including points allowed (121.5), field goal percentage allowed (49.0) and 3-point field goal percentage allowed (38.9).

Kerr observed after Wednesday's 129-112 loss at Houston that the losing might already be catching up with his team.

"A big part of this league is just fighting," Kerr noted to reporters after the game. "Keeping your energy and your spirit up all the time. Whether you're having a good night or a bad night, it can't be dependent on your own success."

In Minnesota, the Warriors no doubt will see a team licking its chops to face a struggling defensive team.

Much of the Timberwolves' early success has been the result of an improved offense, one that has produced 116 or more points in five of seven games.

As expected, Karl-Anthony Towns has led the way with a 26.8-point scoring average, but Andrew Wiggins has been a bigger story, increasing his per-game output from last year's 18.1 to this year's 22.4 in the early going.

Wiggins has scored 25 and 30 points in his past two games, hitting half of his 42 shots.

The 30 came in Wednesday's loss at Memphis, Minnesota's second straight, in a 137-121 shootout in which Towns assured offense wasn't the problem.

"We gave up a gazillion points," he told reporters afterward. "We better hope we score a gazillion and one. We didn't do that."
