Game Story

MINNEAPOLIS (Ticker) -- The Minnesota Timberwolves were happy to be back home, especially against the Atlanta Hawks. Kevin Garnett totalled 21 points, eight rebounds and nine assists and Rasho Nesterovic scored 18 points as the Timberwolves extended their winning streak over the Hawks to seven games with a 113-95 victory. After splitting a six-game road trip, Minnesota returned home to face Atlanta, which has lost its last five visits to the Target Center. The Timberwolves have not lost to the Hawks since December 14, 1999. "It's good to be home," Minnesota coach Flip Saunders. "I always say the two toughest games on a road trip are the last road one and the first one at home. The home game feels like a road game. We didn't look good early, but once we got it going, we played very well." Troy Hudson scored 11 of his 18 points in the first half and Joe Smith had 15 points on 6-of-8 shooting for Minnesota, which was never threatened after the early stages of the third quarter. "One of the things I've been talking about is consistency," Garnett said. "What we did tonight was a carry-over from the road trip. We always say that we want to take care of home and we did that tonight." Minnesota scored the final seven points of the first half to take the lead for good. Hudson buried a jumper and a 3-pointer before Kendall Gill's jump shot at the buzzer gave the Timberwolves a 63-56 halftime edge. "I think Gill's buzzer-beater gave us momentum going into the second half," Garnett said. "I kept saying we need to carry it over, and we need to really put ourselves in a position in the third quarter to open up the game. And we did." "That shot was the turnaround," Smith said. "Earlier in the season, we had sluggish third quarters. So now every time we come into the locker room, (Garnett) makes a point of it that we come out and be aggressive at the start of the third quarter. That's when you can make or break a team." Garnett scored seven points in the third period and Nesterovic added six as Minnesota outscored Atlanta, 24-17. The Timberwolves made 10-of-22 shots in the quarter, including 2-of-3 3-pointers. The Hawks shot 50 percent (22-of-44) in the first half but struggled in the third, making just 7-of-21 shots. They made only 1-of-5 3-pointers in the quarter after hitting 6-of-11 before halftime. The Timberwolves carried a 14-point lead into the fourth quarter and had their largest lead at 109-85 after a tip shot by Smith with 3:50 remaining. Minnesota shot 49 percent (43-of-88) from the floor, made 7-of-9 3-pointers and committed only 10 turnovers. Glenn Robinson scored 21 points and Shareef Abdur-Rahim had 16 for Atlanta, which has lost 10 of 12 road games this season. "We haven't had a lot of success on the road," Atlanta coach Lon Kruger said. "We gave up a little run going into halftime and we weren't able to respond back." "We need to be strong when teams make a run on us," Robinson added. "We need to be able to focus and come back. We're having a tough time on the road and it's a learning experience. We need to get this corrected now, not 40 or 50 games into the season." The Hawks shot just 39 percent (16-of-41) in the second half and finished with 16 turnovers leading to 22 points for Minnesota. Robinson scored seven points in the first six minutes as Atlanta jumped to an 18-8 lead. Garnett and Nesterovic each scored six points in the opening quarter as Minnesota pulled with 30-29 entering the second. The teams traded leads lead five times in the second quarter before Garnett buried a 3-pointer to forge a 56-56 tie with 1:27 left in the first half. Atlanta could not regain the lead thereafter as it was held to just 39 points in the final 25 1/2 minutes.
