Game Story

MINNEAPOLIS (Ticker) -- The Minnesota Timberwolves had problems slowing down Erick Dampier inside. The Golden State Warriors had difficulty with Kevin Garnett all over the court. In another MVP-caliber performance, Garnett collected 24 points, nine rebounds and nine assists to lead the Timberwolves to a 91-81 triumph over the Warriors. Latrell Sprewell scored nine of his 17 points in the fourth quarter and added seven rebounds and six assists for the Timberwolves, who have won eight of their last nine games. "We had a lot of nice assists tonight," said Sprewell, whose team had 35. "It shows what you can do when you move the ball well, and pass up contested shots to get open shots. That's how you win games." Dampier contributed 24 points and 19 rebounds for Golden State. He had 18 and 11 in the first half to help the Warriors to a 45-42 lead. "Most of (Dampier's) points came off offensive rebounds and tip-ins," Minnesota center Michael Olowokandi said. "They would beat one of our guards and I would go to help off of a screen-and-roll, but I couldn't get back in time. In the second half, we were more aggressive." Golden State held a 57-52 edge midway through the third quarter before Minnesota closed the period on a 16-5 run, taking the lead for good, 62-59, on a 3-pointer by reserve Fred Hoiberg with 2:59 left. "Fred is a solid perimeter defender with great hands, and pursues the basketball and does all the little things," Minnesota coach Flip Saunders said. "He's always going to come in and hit a big shot sometime. Good role players will come in and find a niche, and he does that." Golden State, which had won its first two meetings with Minnesota this season, got no closer than four points in the fourth quarter. The Timberwolves shot 49 percent (38-of-78) and limited the Warriors to 41 percent (32-of-78), including 35 percent in the second half (13-of-37). Minnesota connected on 57 percent (21-of-37) after the break. "In the first half ... they had us playing one way on the defensive end," Garnett said. "We slowed them down in the second half, played aggressively on offense and hit shots." Warriors guard Speedy Claxton, who scored a career-high 28 points in a win at Memphis on Wednesday, suffered a fracture in his right hand in the contest and sat out this one. He will be out three weeks. "To lose Speedy to injury is huge for this team, because as Speedy goes, so does the team," said Warriors forward Brian Cardinal, who had nine points. "He will definitely be missed." "We talked before the game how we were undermanned and we needed people to step up and elevate their performance," said Golden State coach Eric Musselman, whose team was also without Calbert Cheaney (tonsilitis). "We still had to believe we could win the game. I think the guys had that mind-set. Obviously, Dampier stepped up big-time tonight." Minnesota was without forward Wally Szczerbiak, who had the flu. But starting point guard Sam Cassell, who missed one game with left ankle tendinitis, had 15 points and seven assists in his return.
