Game Story

MINNEAPOLIS (Ticker) -- The Minnesota Timberwolves continue to pile up the wins at the Target Center. Kevin Garnett scored 23 points and Troy Hudson added 22 as the Timberwolves extended their home winning streak to 11 games with a 114-93 victory over the shorthanded New Orleans Hornets. Minnesota moved within one of the team record for consecutive home wins, set from January 17-February 7, 2001. Overall, the Timberwolves have won five in a row, one shy of a season high. "Over the last couple of weeks, our defense has been pretty much decent," Garnett said. "In my estimation, that's been what's winning games for us." Wally Szczerbiak scored 16 points of his 18 points during a 24-9 run that bridged the third and fourth quarters and gave Minnesota a 104-79 cushion with 5:05 remaining. "I'm doing what the team needs," Szczerbiak said. "That's the beauty about this team. In the first half, Troy was rolling, KG was rolling. The bench came in and played really well. I had to try and lock down on (Jamal) Mashburn and really concentrate on defense. Then, when the ball starting coming my way in the second half, I just had to be ready." David Wesley scored 21 points for the Hornets, who have dropped two in a row following a three-game winning streak. New Orleans played without forward P.J. Brown, who missed the contest due to a death in the family. Guard Baron Davis is sidelined following knee surgery. "I was very pleased with our effort, but we weren't very efficient," New Orleans coach Paul Silas said. "Missing P.J. Brown and Baron Davis, it's hard to be efficient. When you're having Mashburn bring the ball up when he's tired, it tends to cause some turnovers." The Timberwolves took control early, racing to a 37-29 lead after the first quarter. They shot just under 52 percent from the field (47-of-91) and 63 percent from 3-point range (12-of-19). Hudson led the long-range assault by making 6-of-8 shots from beyond the arc en route to a 7-of-13 effort from the field. Garnett was 10-of-18 from the field. Minnesota featured balanced scoring, with six players in double figures, including all five starters. The Timberwolves were unselfish, recording 39 assists. "They were really shorthanded with P.J. being out," Minnesota coach Flip Saunders said. "David Wesley was great for them tonight. The biggest thing was we didn't get caught up in that and we did the things we needed to do. Anytime you have 39 assists, that shows you are moving the ball." Mashburn added 19 points for the Hornets, who shot 41 percent (38-of-92) and made just 2-of-10 3-pointers. Minnesota held a 59-46 lead at intermission and extended the advantage to 87-70 entering the final quarter. "There was uncertainty at times," Wesley said. "Jamal had a tough assignment with Kevin. He was so focused on defending him. That might have triggered some miscommunication getting around screens. Those mistakes were the difference in the game early." Hudson's first 3-pointer put the Timberwolves ahead to stay, 7-5, with 10:07 left in the first quarter. New Orleans closed to 80-70 on Wesley's jumper with 1:40 left in the third period, but Minnesota scored the final seven points of the quarter and improved to 21-5 at home. "We enjoy playing here," Szczerbiak said. "We play with a lot of confidence here. We have ever since I've here, for four years. We've had a great home record. We've just got to continue that and keep that up."
