Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- Latrell Sprewell authored the finish of the latest overtime thriller between the Minnesota Timberwolves and Sacramento Kings. Sprewell scored a season-high 37 points, including two clutch jumpers in overtime, as the Timberwolves dealt the Kings their first home loss of the season, 112-109. "For basketball people, this is what they want to see," Minnesota coach Flip Saunders said. "This is what NBA basketball is all about. Teams going at it, going up and down, playing aggressively both offensively and defensively." "We knew that it would be very competitive," Kings center Vlade Divac said. "We knew they would play hard because they are one of the best teams in the West. It's always interesting to see this matchup." It was the fourth straight overtime game between the teams, an NBA record. Both teams wasted double-digit leads before Minnesota's Kevin Garnett - who had a season-high 33 points and a career-high 25 rebounds - forced overtime with a pair of 3-pointers around two missed free throws by Brad Miller. The extra session belonged to Sprewell, who made 14-of-20 shots. He backed in for a jumper, giving the Timberwolves the lead for good at 108-106 with 1:39 left. After Miller split a pair of foul shots, Sprewell spun away from a defender for another jumper and a 110-107 advantage with 39 seconds to go. "We just wanted to excute down the stretch," Sprewell said. "We didn't really do a good job of that in the fourth quarter, we let them get back in it. We felt like we had a second opportunity to get back in the game and I think we took advantage of it." Mike Bibby, who scored 15 points, missed a reverse layup, then allowed Sam Cassell to slip past him for the clinching layup with 11 seconds to play. Cassell scored 26 points. "Sam was killin' 'em tonight," said Garnett, who had his third 20-rebound game of the season. Miller had a season-high 35 points and 10 rebounds for Sacramento, which had an eight-game winning streak snapped. The Kings had won their last 17 regular season games at Arco Arena, including their first 10 this season. "We feel like they stole one from us and I guess it kind of evens out, because I'm sure they feel like we stole one here," said Sprewell, whose club suffered a 125-121 home overtime loss to the Kings on November 5. "We fought hard but we didn't play smart ball in situations," said Kings guard Bobby Jackson, who scored 17 points. "We missed free throws when we had a chance and they made some big threes." Sacramento trailed by 11 points in the fourth quarter but surged to a 102-96 lead on a jumper by Bibby with 29 seconds left. Garnett answered with a 3-pointer just three seconds later. Miller, who had made his first nine free throws, was fouled right away. But he missed both, and Garnett made him pay by drilling another 3-pointer to tie it with 11 seconds to play. "We knew a guard wasn't going to stop him from shooting at the top of the key," Cassell said. "So we threw it to him and once we made it, (heck), we knew he was going to drop the next one." "I'm not afraid to let any shot go," said Garnett, who was 1-of-8 from the arc coming into the game. "I let it go and it felt good, didn't even think about it. I'm trying to work on reaction and not thinking to much." The Kings led by 11 points in a furious first quarter before settling for a 36-28 lead. The Wolves closed to 56-55 at halftime, then used an 11-0 run to open a 74-61 advantage in the third quarter. Minnesota shot 52 percent (45-of-87) from the field. Peja Stojakovic had 18 points and 11 rebounds for Sacramento.
