Game Story

MINNEAPOLIS (Ticker) -- Mired in a potentially devastating slump, the Minnesota Timberwolves took advantage of a team that had other matters on its mind.

Wally Szczerbiak narrowly missed his first career triple-double with 21 points, 10 assists and nine rebounds as the Minnesota Timberwolves coasted to a 112-89 triumph over the Golden State Warriors.

"Wally played well," Timberwolves coach Flip Saunders said. "He was one rebound away from a triple-double. We had a good team game."

The loss was secondary to Golden State, which learned before the game that emerging star Antawn Jamison is lost for the season following arthroscopic surgery on his left knee. While doctors found no major damage, Jamison will be on crutches before beginning a rehabilitation program.

"We're definitely going to miss him," Warriors forward Donyell Marshall said. "He's our leading scorer. ... We have been playing with injuries all season."

Terrell Brandon scored 21 points and Kevin Garnett added 18 and 14 rebounds for the Timberwolves, who had dropped five of six. Minnesota was 20-5 before its recent funk, which left the Timberwolves 4 1/2 games ahead of Denver for the final Western Conference playoff spot.

"I don't have sympathy for teams with injured players," Brandon said. "Other teams don't have any sympathy for us. I think he's the best player they have and to lose (Jamison) him has to hurt a team."

Szczerbiak, Garnett and Brandon combined to shoot the lights out, going 23-of-33. The Timberwolves made 42-of-75 shots (56 percent) and held a 48-35 rebounding advantage.

The Warriors hung around initially and trailed 15-13 with 4:12 left in the first quarter. But Brandon buried a 14-footer off a feed from Szczerbiak to ignite a 12-3 run.

Brandon and Joe Smith had four points apiece in the burst, which included two free throws by Garnett and a running six-footer by Sczerbiak. Minnesota made 10-of-20 shots in the period while holding Golden State to 6-of-18.

"Our defense won it for us," Garnett said. "Flip stressed that the reason we have been losing is our defensive effort. We shared the ball tremendously. Anytime we do that, we'll win."

The Warriors got back within 36-29 midway through the second quarter, but Minnesota scored 10 of the next 12 points to push the lead to 15. The Timberwolves' advantage reached 20 late in the half and was 57-42 at the break.

Golden State never got within single digits in the second half and trailed by as many 23.

In Jamison's absence, recently acquired shooting guard Larry Hughes tried to carry the offense. But Hughes made only 2-of-16 shots. The Warriors were 28-of-80 overall (35 percent) and 3-of-14 from 3-point range.

"The rest of the year is going to be a learning experience for Larry and his teammates," Warriors coach Garry St. Jean said.

Smith had a solid game off the bench with 16 points and seven rebounds, while rookie William Avery had a career-high eight assists.

"We feel our bench needs to produce for us to be successful," Smith said.
