Game Story

TOKYO (Ticker) -- It's too bad for Kevin Garnett that the Minnesota Timberwolves have to play their 80 remaining games in North America.

Garnett had 31 points and 12 rebounds as Minnesota gained a split of its two-game series in Japan with a 114-101 victory over the Sacramento Kings.

This concluded a pair of monster performances for the fifth-year superstar forward, who shot 13-of-22 from the floor and was 2-of-4 from 3-point range. He made just four 3-pointers last season.

Among the NBA's marquee players, Garnett stole the international spotlight the same way he did at the Tournament of the Americas in Puerto Rico last summer. He scored 34 points and grabbed 17 rebounds in Friday's 100-95 loss to Sacramento and recorded back-to-back 30-point games for the first time in his career.

Minnesota put away the game by scoring the first 10 points of the fourth quarter to open a 98-81 lead with 7:51 left. Anthony Peeler scored six points during that run.

Garnett, who shot 13-of-22 from the floor, blew kisses to the crowd at the Tokyo Dome as the contest ended. He helped the Timberwolves shoot 52 percent (47-of-91) and outrebounded the Kings, 50-37, including 14-8 on the offensive boards.

Peeler scored 19 points, Joe Smith added 17 and Terrell Brandon 14 for the Timberwolves, who avoided their first 0-2 start since 1995. Brandon added 13 assists, setting the two-game record in the NBA Japan series with 25.

Chris Webber paced the Kings with 22 points and 10 rebounds. Vlade Divac scored 19 points and Jason Williams added 17. Sacramento shot just 58 percent (14-of-24) from the line after shooting 85 percent (23-of-27) in the opener.

In an effort to build a global following, the NBA made its fifth venture into Japan to open the season.

Garnett scored 11 straight points spanning the second and third quarters as Minnesota opened a 67-63 lead. Three of those came on a 35-footer as the first half expired.

Garnett was not finished, adding four points during a 10-0 run as the Wolves opened an 84-72 cushion with 3:51 left in the third period.

Sacramento scored eight straight points in less than two minutes to build a 58-50 lead with 2:17 left in the second quarter.
