Game Story

MINNEAPOLIS (Ticker) -- For the upstart Golden State Warriors, elimination from the 1999 playoff race came in the form of Kevin Garnett and the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Garnett scored 12 of his 28 points over the final five minutes as the Timberwolves blew a 10-point lead before their franchise player took over down the stretch, leading them to a 90-85 victory over the Warriors.

"I've always looked at myself as a leader," Garnett said. "Sometimes a leader has to set an example for his teammates to feed off and that's what I tried to do tonight."

Clinging to the final playoff spot in the Western Conference, the Timberwolves watched the Warriors put together a 14-4 run and take a 72-70 lead with 4:11 to play.

Garnett, who also grabbed 15 rebounds, answered with a thunderous dunk and a short jumper to put Minnesota ahead by two.

"I felt I had nothing to do with the third quarter," Garnett added. "So in my mind I had to be a lot more aggressive going into the fourth. These games are going to dictate where we're at for the playoffs. We definitely want to be rolling going into the playoffs."

Golden State (20-27), which has not qualified for the playoffs since 1994, did not back down. Donyell Marshall drained a 3-pointer with 2:06 remaining that gave the Warriors a 77-76 lead.

"I thought we played extremely hard and very, very well," said Golden State coach P.J. Carlesimo. "This game was indicative of the way our year has been. We get a couple of looks down the stretch, and they don't fall. They get looks and they fall."

Garnett countered with a 16-footer but veteran Terry Cummings calmly sank an 18-footer from the right sideline to move Golden State back in front, 79-78, with 1:24 to go.

Garnett and Erick Dampier exchanged a pair of free throws before Joe Smith put the Timberwolves ahead for good, 82-81, by sinking two from the line with 46 seconds left.

The 6-11 Garnett buried the Warriors with a 13-foot fadeaway jumper and two free throws that made it 86-81 with 12 seconds to go.

"Kevin's a good player," said Marshall, a former Timberwolf who had the unenviable task of covering Garnett. "He's the leader of their team. He's their go-to guy and when they need big buckets, that's where they go."

"Kevin Garnett took over the game," Golden State guard John Starks added. "That was pretty much the difference."

Sam Mitchell scored 18 points and Terrell Brandon added 11 and 14 assists for Minnesota, which entered tonight one game ahead of Seattle for eighth place in the West.

Dampier collected 20 points and Marshall matched a season high with 17 rebounds for the Warriors, who suffered their fourth straight road loss and sixth in a row at the Target Center.

Bimbo Coles scored 16 points and Cummings added 14 and 10 rebounds for Golden State, which shot 39 percent (30-of-77). Both teams grabbed 46 rebounds.

Garnett was 11-of-21 from the floor and 6-of-8 at the line for the Timberwolves, who shot 39 percent (36-of-92).

Dean Garrett scored 12 points for Minnesota, which opened a 60-50 lead with 2:35 left in the third quarter on a slam by Garnett.

"All these games are important," Garrett said. "Tomorrow's game (against the Clippers) is as important as this one."

Cummings hit an 18-footer before Muggsy Bogues hit a jumper and pair of free throws to pull Golden State within 66-64 with 7:11 to play.

The Warriors pulled even on another 18-footer by Cummings and went ahead, 72-70, on a pair of free throws by Dampier with 4:11 left. That was Golden State's first lead since it opened the scoring in the first quarter.

"When they took a one-point lead and we called a timeout, I told our guys, `Hey, let's get aggressive'," Minnnesota coach Flip Saunders said. "KG really demanded the ball and the last 3 1/2 minutes, he really dominated the game."
