Game Story

MINNEAPOLIS (Ticker) -- Wally Szczerbiak came off the bench to score 20 points but would not let a fan come out of the stands to score with him. After helping the Minnesota Timberwolves to a 91-73 victory over the Washington Wizards, Szczerbiak had to run away from a female fan who made her way onto the court in the final minute. A foul stopped play with 53 seconds left and Minnesota comfortably ahead. Szczerbiak was standing at the top of the key when a brunette who appeared to be in her 30s got past security and onto the Target Center court, taking a swipe at Gary Trent's foul shot before walking toward Szczerbiak. Szczerbiak ran from the fan as the crowd roared. Security came onto the court and removed the woman, but not before she lunged toward Szczerbiak, trying to hug him. "I wasn't going to take the charge. I was avoiding all contact," he said. Married to his college sweetheart and the father of a 1-year-old girl, Szczerbiak heard chants of "Wally!" for the remainder of the game, Minnesota's fourth straight win. Shannon Szcerbiak kept a sense of humor about her husband being chased around the court, saying "Maybe Wally should keep his card on him during the game. Then he could give out his number to interested fans." Players on Minnesota's bench laughed throughout the entire incident. "That was funny!" guard Sam Cassell said. "(Wally) should have given her a hug. She got arrested for nothing." Wizards coach Eddie Jordan was not nearly as amused. "She got to Wally faster than our guys did," Jordan said. Szczerbiak led an awesome effort by Minnesota's bench, which outscored Washington's, 50-30. Michael Olowokandi had 12 points and 12 rebounds and Darrick Martin scored 11 points. The contributions of the bench allowed Cassell, Kevin Garnett and Latrell Sprewell to get some much-needed rest. Cassell played 24 minutes and Sprewell played 22, both well under their season averages. Garnett scored 22 points for Minnesota (53-24), which maintained its hold on first place in the Midwest Division with its fourth straight win. "We're playing well," said Garnett, who played 32 minutes. "Everybody in the West is really bunched up. We just have to win the rest of our games - that's our goal - and hopefully get the first spot. That's what we're shooting for." Washington shot under 33 percent (26-of-79) from the field and suffered its fifth straight loss. Playing without Kwame Brown (sprained left ankle) and Larry Hughes (strained Achilles tendons), the Wizards fell to a league-worst 7-31 on the road. A 17-4 run by Minnesota to start the fourth quarter doubled the lead to 26 points. Szczerbiak scored nine points during the spurt. After trailing most of the first quarter, the Wolves opened the second period with a 12-2 run and led the rest of the way. Jerry Stackhouse scored half his 14 points in the first quarter and Gilbert Arenas contributed 12 for Washington. Solid defense from Sprewell and Trenton Hassell forced caused Stackhouse and Arenas to shoot just 10-of-34 from the floor. "Defense has been our staple recently," Minnesota coach Flip Saunders said. "Even in our recent losses, we've held teams under 40 percent shooting."
