Game Story

MINNEAPOLIS (Ticker) -- Once Kevin Garnett got off to a quick start, the Indiana Pacers were finished. Garnett made his first five shots en route to 28 points as the Minnesota Timberwolves rolled to their fifth straight victory, a 102-80 rout of the cold-shooting Pacers. Fred Hoiberg scored a season-high 21 points for the Timberwolves, who welcomed back Troy Hudson and won for the eighth time in nine games. Minnesota avenged last month's 23-point loss to Indiana, which may have been a bit drained. "I think they remembered how bad we beat them at our place and they were inspired," Pacers coach Rick Carlisle said. The Pacers were coming off Friday's hard-fought 80-75 win over Detroit in which they shot just 34 percent from the field. Indiana was not much better in this one, managing 35 percent (29-of-82) with a decisive drought in the second period. "We've been in such a shooting slump lately," said Pacers forward Jermaine O'Neal, who scored 16 points on just 6-of-18 shooting. "Right now, we can't seem to throw it in the ocean." After helping shoot Minnesota to an early 22-11 lead, Garnett cooled off just a bit. He made 11-of-18 shots and added nine rebounds, six assists and seven blocks. "We talked extensively on the plane (from Boston earlier in the week) about carrying over the energy from the road," Garnett said. "I think we did just that. We're in a little bit of a rhythm right now. Our defense is gorgeous right now." "We're getting to know each other real well now," said Hoiberg, who made 7-of-10 shots. "Early in the season, we were relying too much on KG. Guys were throwing it into him and just standing around. We've got great player movement right now, great ball movement." Indiana made just 7-of-24 shots in the first quarter, then missed its first five shots of the second period, going scoreless from the field for 6 1/2 minutes and falling behind, 36-19. "They came out with a little more fire than us," said Pacers forward Ron Artest, who made just 2-of-11 shots. "We could've played better, but we played a boring style of basketball. "It's hard to go out and play these Western Conference teams when you can't go back at them like they come at us - especially when our shots aren't falling." Minnesota held a 54-31 halftime advantage and led by as many as 36 points in the second half. The Wolves shot 52 percent (36-of-69). "When you're up 34 or 36, it's tough to complain about too much," Minnesota coach Flip Saunders said. Pacers guard Reggie Miller scored just three points, but that was enough to move him past Charles Barkley into 14th place on the all-time scoring list with 23,759.
