As the final buzzer sounded, marking Golden State’s sixth loss in its last eight contests, Curry sat on the bench in silence with a towel on his head, clearly frustrated.
Curry did all he could, pouring in a team-high 34 points on 10-of-24 shooting but it wasn’t nearly enough to get the Warriors past surging Minnesota. His scoring outburst Tuesday was an encore performance after posting back-to-back double-doubles in Golden State’s previous two tilts.
The eight-time NBA All-Star wasn’t provided much help from teammates. Damion Lee had the Dubs’ next-highest points total with 15 but finished with plus/minus of negative-18. Golden State shot 28.9 percent as a team from deep and committed 17 turnovers.
Curry and the Warriors will get a chance to rebound from consecutive losses at 5:30 p.m. Thursday when Golden State visits the Dallas Mavericks.
