Game Story

MINNEAPOLIS (Ticker) -- Joe Smith had a season-high 30 points and 13 rebounds and Kevin Garnett added 22 points, 19 boards and seven assists as the Minnesota Timberwolves cooled off the Sacramento Kings, 102-90.

Red-hot Stephon Marbury contributed 23 points and 15 assists and only one turnover for Minnesota, which has won seven of its first nine games to extend the best start in franchise history. The Timberwolves also won their 11th straight regular season game at home.

"When you have three guys who have double-doubles for you, that's pretty good from your three main guys," Minnesota coach Flip Saunders said.

Chris Webber scored 20 points and Tariq Abdul-Wahad added 14 for Sacramento, which had its three-game winning streak snapped.

Minnesota never trailed, held an 11-point lead at halftime and extended its lead to 21 on four occasions in the third quarter, the final time on an 18-foot running jumper by Marbury that gave the Timberwolves an 82-61 advantage with 2:07 left.

The Kings went on a 15-2 run over the next 6 1/2 minutes that cut the deficit to 84-76. Jon Barry scored six of his 11 points and Vernon Maxwell added four, including a driving layup that capped it with 7:42 left.

Minnesota regained control as Anthony Peeler sank a 24-footer -- the Wolves' only 3-pointer of the game -- and Marbury made two free throws with 6:19 remaining. Sacramento got no closer than nine thereafter.

"We have to learn that when we get up, we've got to put a team away if we have that opportunity," Saunders said. "We never let them get the margin down to where it was a serious run down the stretch, but we lost some of our offensive aggressiveness that we had early."

Smith, whose previous high was 23 points, scored 19 in the first half and Marbury had 15 and 10 assists as Minnesota led 57-46 at intermission. In his last three games, Marbury is averaging 28.7 points and 12.3 assists.

Minnesota made only 39 percent (40-of-102) from the field, including 1-of-10 from 3-point range, but held a 25-17 advantage in second-chance points.

"I think obviously they were aggressive all night long," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "They set the tone with their aggressive defense. They took us out of what we wanted to do. They knew we had been playing fairly decently and they really came after us. They set the tone all night long."

Lawrence Funderburke had 10 points and 12 rebounds off the bench for Sacramento. Rookie point guard Jason Williams was held in check by Marbury, scoring only 10 points on 4-of-9 shooting.

"We picked him up before he hit half-court," Marbury said. "I played like he does when I was growing up. He's going to be a very good point guard, he just has to learn to play at two speeds. Once he learns, he's going to be a great player."

Sacramento shot just 36 percent (33-of-91). The Kings also missed 16-of-36 free throws and committed 19 turnovers.
