KEY GAME INFORMATION
MINNESOTA: GUARDS: RICKY RUBIO could be back by late December, but even he's not confident his knee will be 100 percent. His minutes might have to be scaled back . . . LUKE RIDNOUR will handle the offense with Rubio hampered. The vet is a steady hand in coach Rick Adelman's Euro-style offense . . . They're counting on BRANDON ROY to reclaim his old form after a radical knee procedure. He may never be 100 percent, but he should at least give them sixth-man minutes . . . CHASE BUDINGER is a three-point marksman who moves well off the ball, a perfect fit in Adelman's system . . . J.J. BAREA will take some of the point guard burden as well. He's a top sixth man . . . ALEXEY SHVED can help as a combo guard, though he might have trouble breaking into this rotation . . . MALCOLM LEE is a defensive stopper who won't be asked to shoot very often. FORWARDS: Despite being limited athletically, KEVIN LOVE is an elite rebounder and shooter for a big. He'll continue to be the focal point of this offense once he returns from a broken hand in early December . . . ANDREI KIRILENKO returns to the States after a dominating Euroleague stint. He's a big upgrade at the three and should be comfortable in Adelman's system . . . DERRICK WILLIAMS will continue his attempted transition to the three. As last year proved, he's a long, long ways away. He might have to play himself into a rotation spot . . . DANTE CUNNINGHAM is a nice, efficient big to bring off the bench . . . Since they need shooting on the wings, rookie ROBBIE HUMMEL has a chance to crack the rotation. CENTERS: NIKOLA PEKOVIC is a beast, the best offensive rebounder in the NBA. His total rebounding numbers get hurt playing alongside Kevin Love, but Pekovic will continue to bully his way to put-backs . . . GREG STIEMSMA is going to come in and do some pushing and shoving (and occasional shot-blocking) for 12-to-15 MPG.
GOLDEN STATE: GUARDS: STEPHEN CURRY is this offense's engine and a stat-stuffing machine, as long as he's healthy. His ankle should be healed, but his small frame hasn't proven to be up to the rigors of the NBA . . . KLAY THOMPSON is a pure shooter who played himself into a starting job last year. He's a bit one-dimensional, but this spread, up-tempo offense is right up his alley . . . JARRETT JACK will back up both guard spots and provide some insurance for the fragile Curry . . . BRANDON RUSH is going to push for a starting job, but he's never proven to be more than a second-unit talent . . . As a rookie, CHARLES JENKINS proved worthy of a roster spot during his late-season audition. But he'll be looking at a lot of DNP-CDs as long as Curry and Jack are healthy. FORWARDS: DAVID LEE's touches will drop alongside Andrew Bogut. The Warriors seem prepared to give him major minutes despite his defensive shortcomings . . . HARRISON BARNES should push for a starting job early. He's not a great iso player, but the Warriors' offense should set him up with catch-and-score opportunities . . . CARL LANDRY is active around the basket and should do some damage over 20 MPG . . . RICHARD JEFFERSON is going to be in a mentor role until his contract expires in two years . . . JEREMY TYLER is young and a borderline usable big off the bench . . . Second-rounder DRAYMOND GREEN isn't an athlete but does a bit of everything. He figures to have a limited role as a rookie. CENTERS: His fractured ankle is not quite 100 percent, but ANDREW BOGUT hopes to be healed enough when the season starts to be the centerpiece of the frontcourt. He can rebound and defend, and he'll get his share of easy scoring opportunities with so many shooters spreading the floor . . . The Warriors seem content to let ANDRIS BIEDRINS rot on the bench . . . Rookie FESTUS EZELI is too raw offensively to see significant minutes.

*Timberwolves-Warriors Preview* ===============================

By JEFF BARTL STATS Writer

Minnesota (5-6) at Golden State (7-6), 10:30 p.m. EDT

Kevin Love has returned from injury with a pair of his customary double-doubles, but neither helped the Minnesota Timberwolves snap out of their funk.

It's been a similar story against the Golden State Warriors in recent years, too.

Golden State seeks its 10th victory in 12 meetings versus struggling Minnesota, which it hosts Saturday night.

The Timberwolves got off to a surprising 5-2 start without Love, who was recovering from a broken right hand, and injured guard Ricky Rubio, but things haven't gone well despite the return of their star forward.

Love scored 34 points and grabbed 13 rebounds in a 101-94 loss to Denver on Wednesday, then finished with 24 and 13, respectively, in Friday's 103-95 defeat at Portland for Minnesota's fourth straight loss.

Nikola Pekovic added 18 points and 10 rebounds for the Timberwolves (5-6), who allowed Portland to shoot 53.8 percent - the best an opponent has shot against them this season.

"We just didn't defend them well enough," coach Rick Adelman said. "They shot the hell out of the ball, and we didn't finish plays at the basket."

Portland hit 11 of 25 from 3-point range after Denver made 9 of 21 from behind the arc Wednesday.

"They just couldn't miss. It's as easy as that," Love said.

Love's career average of 20.4 points in 12 games - which include two with 20-plus rebounds and 10 double-doubles - against Golden State is his second-best against any team, but Minnesota is only 4-8 in those contests.

He sat out Minnesota's 106-98 loss to Warriors on Nov. 16, as Harrison Barnes and David Lee (13 rebounds) scored 18 points apiece for Golden State.

The Warriors (7-6) had won four of their previous five before Friday's 102-91 loss at Denver. Lee finished with 21 points and 10 rebounds, but Barnes had only four points while leading scorer Stephen Curry battled foul trouble and ended up with a season-low six.

Carl Landry (19 points, eight rebounds) and Jarrett Jack (17 points) each had solid performances off the bench.

Curry entered the game averaging a team-best 19.3 points.

"I don't know. It was a rough one out there for everybody," said Curry, who didn't score until hitting a 3-pointer with 3:21 remaining in the game. "I was coming back and forth off the bench and missed a lot of time in the first half.

"That's no excuse. I have to be more aggressive."

Golden State's 16.7 turnovers per game rank 26th in the NBA, and they committed another 14 on Friday - including eight in the second half that helped Denver erase the Warriors' six-point halftime lead.

It also is giving up 99.8 points per game, which ranks 24th.

"They turned it up a notch and we ran for the hills and didn't respond," coach Mark Jackson said. "We didn't help the cause by turning over the basketball and we allowed them transition points. So they got it going. But we didn't try to stop it. We actually helped them keep it going."

Curry hit 7 of 12 shots and scored 17 points in last week's win over the Wolves, and he's averaging 24.2 in his last four games against them.
