Kevin Love had 36 points and 17 rebounds on 93 win over the Warriors.
Luke Ridnour added 11 points and Anthony Tolliver had 10 for Minnesota, which halted a three-game slide. Still, the Timberwolves are just 2-4 since starting point guard Ricky Rubio was lost for the season with a torn ACL.
Golden State retired Hall of Famer Chris Mullin's No. 17 jersey at halftime and fittingly overcame a 17-point deficit during the contest before eventually dropping its fourth straight game.
