GAME RECAP

Kevin Garnett's open 20-footer from the left corner with one second left in double overtime gave the Minnesota Timberwolves a 115-113 victory over the Detroit Pistons that snapped a three-game losing streak.

Garnett had 26 points, 12 rebounds and seven assists. He scored four points in the second overtime and his game-winning shot came on a pass from a driving Stephon Marbury after the Pistons had erased a four-point deficit in the final minute.

"Believe it or not, the last play was actually a designed play for Steph to penetrate and pass to Garnett," said Minnesota coach Flip Saunders. "They had been running at Steph because he had gotten so hot. We just said, 'Steph get in there, You're going to get there with two seconds left and deliver the thing. KG (Garnett) will be wide open in the corner for the game-winner.' They executed. It was nice to see."

"You have to stop the drive," said Detroit's Brian Williams of the game-winning play. "But it cost us. It was a long hard game. They hit the critical shots."

Terry Porter's jumper in the lane with 1:04 left gave Minnesota a 113-109 edge but Joe Dumars responded with an awkward turnaround jumper from the left baseline with 45 seconds to go. After Garnett was whistled for an offensive foul on a rebound, Jerome Williams sank two free throws to tie the game with 17 seconds to go.

Marbury added 26 points and 11 assists for the Timberwolves. He scored five points in the second overtime before setting up the 6-11 Garnett for the game-winner.

Dumars scored a season-high 28 points but just two after the third quarter for the Pistons, who have lost eight of their last nine road games.

"We hung in there," said Porter. "They made some runs at us. Joe was hot for a while. We continued to make plays when we needed them. Steph and Kevin came up big when we needed the big shots."

Marbury missed the final shots at the end of the first overtime and regulation. With Jerry Stackhouse suffocating him defensively, Marbury missed an off-balance runner in the paint to end the first overtime. With one second left in regulation, Marbury grabbed an inbounds pass on the right wing, but his turnaround heave barely grazed the rim.

Brian Williams scored 22 points and grabbed 12 rebounds for Detroit and tied the game, 100-100, on a follow slam with 14 seconds left in the first overtime, countering five straight points by Marbury.

Marbury's spurt atoned for his two missed free throws that would have drawn the Timberwolves within one point and included a three-pointer from the left wing which tied the game with 60 seconds remaining.

Brian Williams scored eight consecutive points for the Pistons but committed a critical turnover on a drive to the basket with two seconds left in the fourth quarter. He hit two free throws to give the Pistons an 89-87 lead with 26 seconds to go in the period but watched as Cherokee Parks tipped in Marbury's layup try to knot the game with 14 seconds remaining in regulation. Marbury's three-point play 26 seconds earlier had tied the game, 87-87.

"Once we got into the first overtime, I knew we were going to win the game," said Marbury. "I felt confident because I could see those guys getting tight. Kevin and I stepped up our games even more."

Dumars scored nine points during a 14-3 third-quarter run as Detroit took a 57-52 advantage with 5:04 to play in the period. The Pistons took a 67-65 lead into the fourth quarter and led throughout the period until Marbury's three-point play.

Porter scored 15 points and Tom Hammonds chipped in 14 and 11 rebounds off the bench for Minnesota, which improved to 5-3 and played in its franchise-record and league-high eighth overtime game this season.

"There's no more pressure there," said Parks of playing in overtime. "Guys have to step up and hit the shots. When it comes down to situations like this, you find out what your team is made of."

Hill scored 19 points and handed out nine assists and Lindsey Hunter added 14 points, six rebounds and nine assists for the Pistons, who fell to 3-2 in overtime games this season. Fourteen of Detroit's 31 losses this season have been by six points or less.

"It was a tough loss," said Hill. "We just couldn't do it. Same thing as usual. We just can't win a close game."
