Game Story

MINNEAPOLIS (Ticker) -- Kevin Garnett and the Minnesota Timberwolves did just enough to hold off Amare Stoudemire and the hard-charging Phoenix Suns. Garnett scored 22 points and grabbed 13 rebounds for his league-leading 26th double-double as the Timberwolves snapped the Suns' season-high five-game winning streak, 104-98. Troy Hudson contributed 19 points and Kendall Gill 18 for Minnesota. The Wolves led, 64-42, after a jumper by Rasho Nesterovic with 9:09 left in the third quarter but saw their lead dwindle to 100-95 on a 3-pointer by Shawn Marion with 1:24 remaining. But the Wolves tightened their defense, and after Hudson made it 102-97 with two free throws with 35 seconds left, the Suns got no closer than five points thereafter. Stoudemire, a leading Rookie of the Year candidate who scored 19 points and pulled down 13 rebounds in Sunday's win at Cleveland, poured in a season-high 38 points and grabbed 14 rebounds in this one. He had 23 points by halftime - three more than his previous season high. "I think I can be pretty good after a while," Stoudemire said. "After I get the fundamentals down and get comfortable out there." "He is something else," Gill said. "I've never seen in my career someone jump that quickly and with that kind of power. He's a true stud. You need three guys to guard him - we tried two all night, and that certainly didn't work." Marion, who missed Sunday's contest with a left ankle sprain, had 26 points and 12 rebounds in his return. Former Timberwolf Stephon Marbury scored 17 points, but all of them after the Suns trailed, 58-40, at the break. "(Garnett) doesn't even compare to Amare," Marbury said. "It's not even close. It's two different people. It's like Michael Jordan and Mario Elie. It's not even close." "I won tonight," Garnett countered. "Since (Marbury) left, I've been in the playoffs every year. He hasn't. This is all about him being jealous. ... Since he left, he can't stop talking about Kevin Garnett. He has a family - a wife, three kids, big bills - and I'm still on his mind. It's like a girl. Yeah, like a girl. He just can't get me out of his mind. I'm bigger than all this. You guys know I'm more professional." Minnesota converted 20 Phoenix turnovers into 30 points, while the Suns managed just 14 off 14 Timberwolves giveaways. "We had our chances," Suns coach Frank Johnson said. "When you did a hole that deep, it's tough to come back on a good team. They scored 30 points off of our turnovers. We missed 13 (of 35) free throws, had 20 turnovers ... that's too much to overcome, but we almost did." But despite the result, almost all of the talk after the game centered on the Suns' rookie. "(Stoudemire) plays well beyond his years," Minnesota coach Flip Saunders said. "He plays like a man. He brings a great amount of energy and aggressiveness to the game. He has great talent, but also has the mental drive. He has the full package. I said I thought he was a combination of Karl Malone and Shawn Kemp. He has Kemp's explosiveness and his high-wire act. He has Malone's temperament, strength and meanness, rebounding-wise." "This kid is so far gone," Marbury said of his teammate. "You talk about (Houston rookie) Yao Ming. I wouldn't take Yao Ming over that kid ever, 7-6 or no. It's not even close."
