Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- Kevin Garnett scored 26 points and grabbed 17 rebounds as the Minnesota Timberolves held off a late charge by the Sacramento Kings for a 101-95 victory.

A layup by Anthony Peeler with just under 8 1/2 minutes remaining gave the Timberwolves a seemingly safe 84-73 advantage.

But Sacramento rallied. Chris Webber had a tip-in and Vernon Maxwell made two free throws before rookie Predrag Stojakovic converted a three-point play to bring the Kings within 84-80 with 6:55 left.

Garnett and Reggie Jordan made baskets to give the Wolves an eight-point edge with 5:51 left. But Lawrence Funderburke completed a three-point play and Stojakovic, who scored 16 points, nailed a 3-pointer to slice the deficit to two with 5:13 to go.

Peeler answered with a 3-pointer, fueling a 10-4 surge that gave the Wolves a 98-90 cushion with 33 seconds remaining. Peeler finished with 20 points and seven rebounds.

Rookie Jason Williams scored 17 points and Chris Webber had 15 and 10 rebounds for the Kings, who were coming off Thursday's embarrassing loss to the previously winless Los Angeles Clippers.

Sacramento's three-game losing streak equals a season high.

"It was a very tough game. We lost and got booed by the fans," Webber said. "It's funny to me that when you win a couple of games that you're not supposed to, you are the next best thing to oatmeal. Then you have a bad game or go through a bad couple of games to receive that type welcome. I love being booed on the road, so hopefully we could get a few road games in so when we get booed, it should be like that."

The Wolves took a 66-55 lead with 8:20 left in the third quarter before Sacramento made a run. Vlade Divac hit two foul shots and Williams drained a 3-pointer, triggering a 13-4 run which brought the Kings within 70-68 with 2:11 left in the period.

Williams finished 5-of-12 from the floor, but was constantly hounded by Bobby Jackson.

"I wanted to pressure him," said Jackson of his matchup against Williams. "I think I contained him very well. He doesn't like being pressured. The key is getting him to turn around with his back facing the basket. Also, the key is not to have him running with the ball."

Jackson, making his second straight start since Stephon Marbury was traded, had another strong game for the Wolves. He had 15 points, nine assists and five rebounds.

After the Kings made their surge, Minnesota answered with a 10-3 burst bridging the third and fourth quarters to make it 80-71 with 10 1/2 minutes left.

Garnett connected on 7-of-12 shots in the first quarter and scored 14 points, helping the Wolves to a 34-20 advantage. The Kings closed to 56-47 at intermission.

Garnett finished 12-of-20 from the floor as he had his second big game against Sacramento this season. In the two meetings against the Kings, he has collected 48 points and 36 rebounds.

Sam Mitchell added 12 points for the Wolves, who shot 47 percent (40-of-86) and forced Sacramento into 20 turnovers that led to 22 points. The Wolves also held a 47-36 rebounding edge.

Funderburke netted 14 points on 6-of-10 shooting for Sacramento, which hit 43 percent (33-of-76) from the floor.

"This one was kind of a duplicate of last night's game," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "We got off to a very bad start and the rest of the way we had to battle back."

Terrell Brandon, acquired from the Milwaukee Bucks in the Marbury trade, was not in uniform for the Wolves.
