Game Story

MINNEAPOLIS (Ticker) -- The Memphis Grizzlies are getting closer to winning, which is making their losses harder to swallow. Kevin Garnett scored five of his season-high 34 points in overtime and grabbed 22 rebounds as the Minnesota Timberwolves kept the Grizzlies winless with a 110-106 victory. Memphis has lost its first 11 games and is the NBA's only winless team. After nearly ending their skid against the Timberwolves last Friday, the Grizzlies rallied to force overtime in the rematch. "Their record doesn't reflect how they play," Garnett said. "We should be more than satisfied with winning. They made it a dogfight. It was ugly, but it was a win." Memphis scored the final five points of regulation, forcing the extra session when Stromile Swift buried two free throws with 18 seconds left. The Grizzlies had a 102-101 lead on Jason Williams' fallaway jumper with 3:16 remaining in overtime. But Anthony Peeler responded with a 3-pointer 10 seconds later to give Minnesota the lead for good. After Memphis failed to score, Kendall Gill missed a 3-pointer from the corner, but Garnett caught the airball and put it back for a 106-102 lead at the 2:27 mark. Garnett added a basket with 99 seconds left and Gill sealed the victory with two free throws with 16 seconds to play. Garnett made 11-of-20 shots, 12-of-15 free throws and dished out six assists. "Two games they've needed him to play well and he stepped up," Memphis coach Hubie Brown said of Garnett, who had 28 points in the first game against the Grizzlies. "That's why he's their star player." Gary Trent scored a season-high 19 points and Gill finished with 14 and eight rebounds for the Wolves, who have won eight straight from the Grizzlies. Minnesota has won 14 of the last 15 meetings with the Memphis franchise and holds a 30-4 advantage in the all-time series. Troy Hudson had 14 points and seven assists and Joe Smith scored 12 points off the bench in his first game of the season. Smith missed the first 11 games with a groin injury. Williams scored 14 points to lead seven players in double figures for Memphis. Pau Gasol, Shane Battier and Mike Batiste each scored 12 points for the Grizzlies, who shot 42 percent (37-of-88). "We were missing shots but we played great defense and covered one another," Brown said. "We loved our production and that's why we stayed with them until the end of the game. We just have to make big shots." "If anybody says they don't see any positives from what's going on out there, they're lying," Batiste said. "It's the little things we have to correct. Once we get those things done, we'll start getting some wins." Memphis led by as many as 14 points in the first half and had a 93-89 edge with 3:50 left in the fourth quarter. But Minnesota scored seven straight points on free throws before Hudson's jumper made it 98-93 with 2:24 to go. "They were kicking our butts in the first half," Gill said. "We were running around out there like we were the Keystone Kops. But we got it together. Then we came out and took care of business." Williams completed a three-point play with 61 seconds left to bring the Grizzlies within 98-95, and Hudson missed a 3-pointer at the other end. Williams broke down the defense and made a behind-the-back pass to Swift, who caught the ball on the left baseline and was fouled as he went to the basket. He buried both free throws and Gill missed a long jumper as time expired.
