Draymond Green, Klay Thompson and Jaden McDaniels ejected after altercation

Draymond Green was ejected after putting Rudy Gobert in a headlock, and Klay Thompson and Jaden McDaniel were also ejected.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — When the NBA created the In-Season Tournament to inject playoff-level intensity into regular-season games, the brawl between the Golden State Warriors and the Minnesota Timberwolves that resulted in three early evictions Tuesday night could not have been -may not have been what the league had in mind.

With the game still scoreless and not yet two minutes old, Golden State’s Draymond Green was ejected after putting Minnesota’s Rudy Gobert in a headlock. Also ejected were Warriors guard Klay Thompson and Timberwolves forward Jaden McDaniels, who got into a shoving match that resulted in Thompson’s jersey being torn.

After the dust settled, Karl-Anthony Towns scored 33 points, sending Minnesota to a 104-101 victory over Golden State. The Wolves have won seven straight games, their longest winning streak since 2004.

“We just found an ugly way to win in a game that was pretty ugly,” Minnesota coach Chris Finch said. “All credit to (the Warriors), those guys, they were super physical and got us out of our rhythm. But we found a way to win it and showed some mental toughness.

The rematch of the Wolves’ 116-110 victory at Chase Center on Sunday had no shortage of intensity as the lead changed hands several times in the fourth quarter, until Towns gave the lead for good. Minnesota with a 3-pointer with 1:07. remaining.

Towns also grabbed 11 rebounds and Gobert had 13. Reigning Western Conference Player of the Week Anthony Edwards scored 20 points.

“I just saw a few moments to take a few shots. I’m glad I did it,” Towns said. “My teammates put me in great positions. Mike (Conley) finished the game. It was just a team win, a big win. (Edwards) made some big shots when we needed him to, Rudy got some big rebounds and we were able to continue to move down the list.

Golden State was without leading scorer Stephen Curry, who was ruled out with right knee soreness. Coach Steve Kerr said an MRI revealed “nothing alarming” and the star goaltender was considered day-to-day.
