GAME RECAP

Vin Baker scored 27 points and grabbed 12 rebounds as the Seattle SuperSonics won in Minnesota for the 15th straight time, posting a 99-98 overtime victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves.

The Timberwolves had possession of the ball with 3.4 seconds left in overtime when Kevin Garnett took an inbounds pass at the foul line, turned around and fired, but his shot hit off the front of the rim and time expired.

"We were right there knocking on the door," Garnett said. "I had a good look at it. You just have to let this game go and come back the next day. We knew they were going to come out with a lot of intensity. We made a couple of mistakes, but that happens. At the end, it came down to one shot."

Dale Ellis' three-pointer with 3:41 left in overtime gave Seattle the lead for good at 95-94. Gary Payton followed with a driving layup 26 seconds later to increase the lead to 97-94.

Payton finished with 22 points, including four three-pointers, and Ellis added 13, including 3-of-5 from three-point range, as the Sonics, coming off back-to-back losses to Orlando and Charlotte, shot 9-for-18 from behind the arc. Baker added a career-high 15 free throws in 21 attempts.

Sam Mitchell scored 21 points, Anthony Peeler tied his season high with 20 and Garnett had 19 and 10 boards in a career-high 51 minutes for Minnesota, which has lost six of its last eight games. The Timberwolves last won at home against Seattle on December 30th, 1990.

Neither team shot well from the field, with Seattle making 40 percent (33-for-82) and Minnesota just 37 percent (37-for-99). The Timberwolves, who outrebounded the Sonics 50-45, were only 6-of-17 from three-point range.

"We played great defense all game long," Seattle coach George Karl said. "We didn't play well offensively. Winning a tough game on the road after a long trip is great. It wasn't pretty basketball, but we won. We're struggling right now and need to get home and tune things up a little."

Baker made one of two free throws at the 2:40 mark of overtime to increase Seattle's lead to 98-94. Garnett's two free throws with 42.3 seconds left cut Sonics' lead to 98-96, giving Minnesota its first points since Marbury scored on a drive that drew a goaltending call on Baker to give the Timberwolves a 94-92 lead 61 seconds into the extra session.

Payton then sank one of two free throws before Mitchell hit a follow shot with 7.9 seconds left to pull the Timberwolves to within 99-98.

Seattle had a chance to increase its lead sixth-tenths of a second later, but Greg Anthony missed two free throws. His second miss went through the hands of teammate Detlef Schrempf beforethe ball ended up in Marbury's hands, setting up Minnesota's final possession.

"I think we got a little tired, but we dug in, came back and had a chance at the end," Minnesota coach Flip Saunders said. "Kevin had a 15-foot shot at the buzzer to win it, and it was not that bad a look. In that situation, if you get a 15-foot shot, that's a pretty good look, you have to feel pretty good."

The Sonics hit their first seven field goal attempts of the fourth quarter, ending with a Baker turnaround with seven minutes left to give Seattle an 87-80 advantage. A three-pointer by Payton with the 24-second clock about to expire moved Seattle ahead 92-86 with 1:42 remaining.

Mitchell's corner jumper and two free throws by Marbury with 23.3 seconds left evened the score, 92-92. Baker's turnaround attempt on Seattle's last possession of regulation was short, sending the game into overtime.

The Timberwolves built their biggest lead of the second half with 4:10 left in the third quarter, after two free throws by Marbury made it 71-58.

Seattle closed the quarter on a 12-0 spurt, with Sam Perkins and Hersey Hawkins each hitting three-pointers and Ellis capping it with 24 seconds left to pull the Sonics within 71-70 heading into the final quarter.

The Timberwolves had lost an NBA-record 26 straight games to the Sonics before a 112-103 win at Seattle on December 23rd. It was Minnesota's first win over the Sonics since March 15th, 1991.
