Game Story

MINNEAPOLIS (Ticker) -- Kevin Garnett was a triple threat against the Sacramento Kings. Garnett, the reigning Western Conference Player of the Week, registered 20 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists as the Minnesota Timberwolves snapped the Kings' six-game winning streak, 90-74. "This was a huge game for us, and we came out and played and did the things that we are accustomed to doing," said Garnett, whose team is about to embark on a season-high six-game road trip. "Some nights we make it look hard for ourselves. It's important we carry the momentum over to the road trip." It was the eighth career triple-double and second this season for Garnett, who recorded his league-best 14th double-double while leading the Timberwolves to a fourth win in five games. "He is underrated, in my opinion, because he does so many great things on the floor," Minnesota guard Troy Hudson said. "A lot of players in the league are rated on their scoring ability. KG comes out every night and gets you 20-25 points, 14-15 rebounds and five or six assists. There aren't too many guys in the league doing that. If you ask me, he's the best in the league right now." Minnesota began the game on a 23-4 burst and, paced by Kendall Gill's 10 points, led 29-10 after one quarter. Sacramento stormed back in the second quarter, climbing within three before Minnesota took a 43-38 advantage into halftime. The Kings lost forward Hedo Turkoglu to a sprained right wrist 1:18 into the second quarter after he landed awkwardly following a collision with Minnesota's Joe Smith in the paint. X-rays were negative, but Turkoglu could be out for as much as two weeks. "I thought he had really hurt himself," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "I think we were all scared. I don't really know the extent of it right now. It's his right hand and his right wrist. That obviously can't be good. It seems like we become more and more shorthanded every time we go out." "I'm tired of us being hurt," All-Star forward Chris Webber said. "I really believe in my heart that in the long run, we'll be better off because of it. I think this year we've won every game on toughness. We've got guys playing hard but out of position, and we're doing what we can." Already playing without injured All-Star forward Peja Stojakovic, the Kings appeared to run out of energy in the third quarter, allowing the Timberwolves to take a 70-57 lead into the final period. Sacramento got no closer than 11 points in the fourth quarter. "It's always tough when you get up big," Minnesota coach Flip Saunders said. "It was the first time this year that we got up, a team made a run and we established the game again. They're a good team, no matter who they put on the floor." "We didn't have it tonight," Adelman said. "We didn't have enough energy to play. We just didn't play well. It's one of those games. I don't know what it is about this arena. we just have never played well here." Gill scored 15 points, Gary Trent added 14 and Hudson 13 for the Timberwolves, who beat Sacramento for the ninth time in 10 games at home. "In the second half, we didn't panic when they made their run," Gill said. "Beforehand, a couple weeks ago, we probably would've been throwing the ball all over the place. We didn't do that tonight, and fortunately we came out and beat a good team. That's something that we've been wanting to do." Chris Webber contributed 19 points and 11 rebounds, Bobby Jackson scored 13 points and Vlade Divac 10 and 10 rebounds for Sacramento, which lost for just the second time in 11 games. "We never play well in this building," said Jackson, who played collegiately at nearby Minnesota but made only 4-of-16 shots. "I was cold. I said it from the beginning. I had no feel or rhythm. I don't know if it's because it's cold in this arena, but I couldn't get my grip on the ball and I just couldn't find my rhythm. I think we might have to turn the temperature down in our practice arena and try to play when it's cold, because we never play well here." Neither team shot the ball well. Minnesota connected on just 39 percent (36-of-92), while Sacramento shot 38 percent (31-of-81). The Timberwolves made only 1-of-6 3-pointers and the Kings 1-of-10. But the Kings were particularly anemic at the line, making just 11-of-24 free throws. The Timberwolves made 17-of-20 from the stripe. "We didn't shoot well at any point of the game," Adelman said. "We had way too many misses early, and they were quite hot early. Somehow we got back in it at the half, but we just didn't have enough energy to keep it going the entire game."
