Game Story

MINNEAPOLIS (Ticker) -- Kevin Garnett outdueled Jalen Rose in overtime, but he had a little help.

Garnett scored six of his season-high 34 points in the extra session and the Minnesota Timberwolves withstood an assault by Rose in a 113-110 victory over the Indiana Pacers.

Rose scored 31 points, including all nine in overtime. His four baskets had the Pacers in a 109-109 tie with 1:03 remaining, but Anthony Peeler responded with a jumper that gave Minnesota the lead for good with 44 seconds left.

On the next trip, Rose was fouled but made just 1-of-2 free throws with 20 seconds to go. The Pacers fouled Terrell Brandon, who made both shots for a three-point lead with 18 seconds to play.

Rose's potential tying 3-pointer was smothered by the shorter Brandon, who forced a jump ball. Rose won the tip to Austin Croshere, who waited for Rose to break free and passed to him. But he missed another 3-pointer and time expired.

Coming off a triple-double at Detroit on Friday, Garnett made 12-of-25 shots, 10-of-12 free throws and pulled down a season-high 20 rebounds. He tied the game with 1:16 to go in regulation and made Minnesota's first two baskets of overtime.

"That's as good a game as you are going to see from anybody who has played four games in six nights," Wolves coach Flip Saunders said.

"KG can kill you in so many ways," Pacers coach Isiah Thomas said. "We could have tried to take the ball out of his hands a little more but then it opens up so many things."

Brandon and Chauncey Billups scored 16 points apiece for the Timberwolves, who have won six of their last seven games and improved to 2-5 in the second of back-to-back games.

In regulation, Garnett dueled improving Pacers center Jermaine O'Neal, who scored a career-high 30 points on 11-of-18 shooting. Both Garnett and O'Neal entered the NBA directly out of high school.

"Jermaine O'Neal is one of those underrated guys," Garnett said. "I wasn't shocked at what he did tonight, because I knew he could do it. He was aggressive and held the paint. He was a force in the middle."

"He has a will to win and I have a will to win," O'Neal said. "We want to do whatever we can, if it's scoring or something else."

Saunders was impressed with O'Neal and enjoyed watching the matchup.

"He made big shots and was really aggressive," Saunders said. "You saw two young power forwards -- one with 34, the other with 30 -- really go at it."

Reggie Miller scored 20 points and Travis Best added 11 and 13 assists for the Pacers, who have lost four of their last five road games.

After Garnett's jumper tied it at 101-101, Miller misfired on a 3-pointer and Indiana's Jeff Foster missed two free throws with 43 seconds left.

"He was in a bad situation at the line late in the game," Thomas said. "But in the long run, that will be good for him."

Brandon missed a 10-footer, Miller missed another 3-pointer and Brandon again missed an open jumper from the corner at the buzzer, forcing overtime.

"I was disappointed I didn't hit the last shot in the fourth quarter," Brandon said.

Garnett opened overtime with a pair of 14-footers before Rose answered with a jumper. Garnett missed and Rose hit another jumper and dunked to give Indiana a 107-105 lead with 2:30 to play.

Brandon and Garnett made jumper to reclaim the lead for the Wolves but Rose hit a short jumper to tie it.

Peeler and Wally Szczerbiak scored 12 points apiece for the Wolves, who shot 46 percent (38-of-82) and made 35-of-39 free throws.

Indiana shot 49 percent (42-of-85) but was just 23-of-33 from the line.
