Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- Anthony Peeler, Joe Smith, Rod Strickland and the rest of the bench lifted the Minnesota Timberwolves to a 114-98 victory over the Golden State Warriors. Kevin Garnett had another excellent game with 21 points, 15 rebounds and nine assists, but this time he received lots of support from the Timberwolves' reserves, who outscored the Warriors' second unit, 51-12. They helped snap Golden State's season-high three-game winning streak. The Warriors erased a 16-point deficit to take a 69-68 edge on a dunk by Erick Dampier with 6:31 to play in the third quarter. It was 72-72 before Smith nailed a jumper with 4:23 left to give Minnesota the lead for good, and the Timberwolves extended the advantage to 82-74 heading to the final period. The Warriors got within 84-79 on a jumper by Antawn Jamison one minute into the fourth quarter, but Strickland made a layup and Peeler sandwiched a pair of baskets around one by Kendall Gill to give the Timberwolves a 92-79 lead with 8:50 to play. Golden State got no closer than 10 points thereafter. "Their bench was phenomenal," Warriors coach Eric Musselman said. "They have a lot of veterans coming off the bench. Strickland and Peeler are great players." "It's something we take pride in, coming off the bench, and we either want to pick up where the starters left off or they come out a little sluggish (and) we want to add the energy they didn't have," Smith said. "Once they made their run in the third quarter, we got to talking on the bench that whenever we got our number called that it was up to us to bring the energy." The Warriors slipped to 1-10 when trailing at halftime and 1-11 when behind after three quarters. "We weren't happy with our defense at all, especially in the first half," Musselman said. "In the second half, we played with more energy, with a greater sense of urgency. We came back in the third quarter and then took some bad shots at the end of the third quarter and let it get away from us a little bit." Peeler scored 11 of his 17 points in the fourth quarter, Smith had 15 and 10 rebounds and Strickland chipped in 12 points and eight assists for Minnesota, which improved to 2-2 on a six-game road trip. "I think we showed great energy, both in the first half and overall," Timberwolves coach Flip Saunders said. "They came out strong in the third and made a run, and to our credit, our guys withstood the run and made another run at the end of the third quarter." Gill added 19 points and Rasho Nesterovic had 14 for the Timberwolves, who shot 52 percent (47-of-91) and held the Warriors under 40 percent (33-of-83). Jamison scored 32 points and grabbed 10 rebounds and Jason Richardson contributed 22 points for the Warriors, who were trying for their first four-game winning streak since January 27-February 4, 2000. Jamison has scored at least 30 points in each of his last three games. Troy Murphy recorded his eighth double-double in 10 games, totaling 12 points and 13 rebounds. "I can't praise Troy Murphy enough for his defensive effort," Musselman said. "We didn't double-team Garnett after the first five minutes, and I thought Troy's defense was outstanding. He can't get any more out of his body." Paced by Garnett, who registered his league-leading 18th double-double and ninth in a row, the Timberwolves outscored the Warriors in the paint, 54-34. "Right now, we're flowing," Garnett said. "(We) gotta keep the confidence and the level up and try to get some consistency out of the winning and put together a nice little stretch and focus on that. We've definitely got to focus on being more consistent." Minnesota converted 20 turnovers into 23 points, while the Warriors turned 14 Timberwolves' miscues into just 13 points. "The last six, seven years, they've been in the playoffs," Jamison said. "If you give them a 12-point lead at halftime, they know how to take advantage of that. I really think we shot ourselves in the foot. We didn't take care of the ball at certain points. They kept getting easy shots, second-chance points, points in the paint. "You cannot do that with a team like Minnesota. They'll eat you alive and really make you pay for it."
