Jack helps Golden State rally past Timberwolves

MINNEAPOLIS – Jarrett Jack had 23 points and eight assists to rally the Golden State Warriors to a 100-99 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday.

Derrick Williams had 23 points and 12 rebounds for the Timberwolves, who had a chance to win it in the final seconds. But Luke Ridnour’s mad dash down the court ended with a floater that was off the mark, and the Warriors escaped.

Nikola Pekovic had 21 points and eight rebounds and Ricky Rubio had 16 points, 11 assists, eight rebounds and six steals for Minnesota.
