OAKLAND -- The Warriors had five players in double-figures as they rallied from behind to beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 96-85 on Saturday at Oracle Arena.

Point guard Stephen Curry and forward Carl Landry combined for 14 points in the fourth quarter to help Golden State (8-6) win for the fifth time in its last seven games. The Warriors now get four days off before three more home games.

Golden State is now 2-0 against Minnesota this season. Unlike when the teams met Nov. 16, the Timberwolves had All-Star power forward Kevin Love, bruising center Nikola Pekovic and backup guard J.J. Barea in the lineup.

Curry finished with 20 points and six assists. Landry had 18 points and nine rebounds off the bench. They led a 22-6 run to put the Timberwolves away.

The Warriors trailed 79-74 with just over 10 minutes left in the fourth quarter. They got a boost from rookie forward Draymond Green, who scored consecutive layups. After a free throw by rookie forward Harrison Barnes tied the game, Landry gave the Warriors an 81-79 lead with a hook in the lane.
