Game Story

MINNEAPOLIS (Ticker) -- Terrell Brandon almost singlehandedly ended the Minnesota Timberwolves' five-game losing streak.

Brandon recorded his second career triple-double as the Timberwolves blasted the Golden State Warriors, 122-83, for the most lopsided victory in franchise history.

With the contest never in doubt, Brandon played only 33 minutes but collected 27 points, 10 rebounds and 16 assists, one shy of the franchise mark. Minnesota led by as many as 48 points midway through the fourth quarter.

The Timberwolves were primed for revenge after two embarrassing losses at Golden State earlier in the season. Minnesota suffered a 113-94 to the Warriors on November 25 and a 120-99 defeat on December 19.

"I think he (Brandon) knew this was a big game, a must-win type game," Minnesota coach Flip Saunders said. "I think he wanted to get us off to a good start. You know when you're going against a guy like Mookie Blaylock, who's a very good defender and has quick hands, you need to go at him. If he gets you back on your heals, you're in for a long night because he starts running around, causing havoc on the floor."

Kevin Garnett added 23 points for the Timberwolves, who improved to 1-5 since the All-Star break. Minnesota shot a season-best 58 percent (51-of-88) from the field.

Minnesota's previous most lopsided win was a 103-71 blowout of Dallas on January 2, 1993.

"When you break a streak like this, you want to shatter it," Garnett said. "We did that. We came out focused and aggressive. Flip's pep talk was short. We knew what we had to do. Tonight, we went out and followed TB's (Brandon's) lead. When he is aggressive, it gets us all going."

Brandon recorded his other triple-double last season in a 123-112 victory at Philadelphia. In that contest, he had 27 points, 10 rebounds and 14 assists.

Golden State coach Dave Cowens actually was able to find something positive to take out of the game.

"One good thing is we got to watch some guys," he said. "Some guys got a lot of time that don't usually have that (chance). One of the things we've been doing is playing a few guys lots of minutes."

Wally Szczerbiak added 14 points and Chauncey Billups contributed 12 off the bench for the Timberwolves, who scored 64 points in the first and 58 after intermission.

"We played very relaxed," Szczerbiak said. "Terrell broke the ice. He played with a vengeance that got us kick-started. It's unbelievable we lost to this team by 20 points twice earlier this year."

"It's amazing when you make shots how different the game is," Saunders added. "I do think we had a lot better energy than we've had. There's no question that from a player's standpoint of having lost two games against them at their place, that our players came in definitely with the idea of revenge."

Larry Hughes scored 18 points and Antawn Jamison 14 for the Warriors, who suffered their worst loss since a 149-104 drubbing to the Mavericks on January 15, 1985. They have dropped seven straight games and 12 of their last 13.

"We beat them twice," Hughes said. "We knew they were going to come out for a little revenge. They were struggling. They came out and took care of business. They were making their shots. We just caught them on one of those nights."

Golden State took its last lead, 11-9, on Hughes' jumper with 8:17 left in the first quarter. The Timberwolves opened a 30-22 lead after the first period, then built a 64-44 halftime cushion on Todd Day's 3-pointer with three seconds to go before intermission.

The nightmare continued for the Warriors as the Wolves scored the first 15 points of the third quarter to go up, 79-44.

"That's the thing that really upsets me, the way we came out so flat (after halftime)," Cowens said. "We weren't ready to play. Guys were still playing with the strings on their pants."

"This was really embarrassing," Hughes said. "I feel really embarrassed to come out and do what we did. I can't wait to get out and step on the floor and prove something."

William Avery hit a jumper to give Minnesota its biggest lead, 107-59 with 8:36 to play.

The Wolves committed just seven turnovers and made 9-of-21 3-pointers.

Golden State shot 36 percent (33-of-91) and hit only 3-of-14 3-pointers.
