Game Story

MINNEAPOLIS (Ticker) -- A trio of reserves - Wally Szczerbiak, Anthony Carter and Fred Hoiberg - may have given the Minnesota Timberwolves the spark they needed to get back on track. Szczerbiak scored 28 points, Carter collected a season-high 13 assists and career-best four blocks and Hoiberg scored all 11 of his points in the final five minutes as the Timberwolves erased a 16-point deficit in a 103-97 triumph over the Milwaukee Bucks. After posting the best record in the Western Conference last season, Minnesota had lost three of four and 11 of its last 15 games, leaving it one game behind the Los Angeles Lakers for the eighth and final playoff spot. "I think that a game like this can give you the momentum and spark you need to get going in the right direction," Kevin Garnett said. "This is totally a momentum game. We have to build off this." "We've been struggling, so we have to build off this win," Hoiberg added. "We have to remember that we won this game because of our energy." Milwaukee built a 74-58 lead when Desmond Mason capped a 19-5 run with a 20-foot jumper with five minutes to go in the third quarter. But Minnesota responded with a 28-11 burst behind Szczerbiak and Carter. Szczerbiak scored 13 points and Carter added six of his eight during the spurt, which gave the Timberwolves an 86-85 advantage with 6:05 remaining. "This was a great character win for us," Hoiberg said. "AC (Carter) was the player of the game. He got everybody involved. In the first half, Wally was huge for us. He kept us in the game. And then AC gave us great energy in the second half and especially down the stretch." Starter Sam Cassell missed his second game in a row with a strained right hamstring, an injury which has forced him to miss 16 of the last 27 games. Although Troy Hudson started, Carter played the entire fourth quarter - much to the delight of Szczerbiak. "I've been longing to play with a point guard like AC for my entire career," he said. "He plays the right way, he gets people involved, he pushes the ball up the court, he works hard on 'D'. He makes it easy on scorers like myself and Freddy. I can't say enough about him." After Michael Redd - who scored 24 points - evened the contest by splitting a pair of free throws, Hoiberg gave Minnesota the lead for good, 89-86, on a 3-pointer with 4:32 remaining. It was the sharpshooting guard's first basket of the contest and the first of seven consecutive Timberwolves points he scored. Minnesota won the battle of the benches, outscoring Milwaukee's reserves, 53-6. "Right now, the second team is developing a lot of chemistry," Szczerbiak said. "When I go to tell AC something, he already knows what I'm going to say. It's like we're on the same wavelength." "They kept their poise," Milwaukee guard Maurice Williams said. "We jumped on them early, but their bench got them back in it. Wally played well, Hoiberg shot the lights out. Their bench played a major role in the win." Garnett posted his league-leading 50th double-double of the season with 25 points and 10 rebounds for the Timberwolves. He helped put away the game with a dunk and a pair of free throws that made it 101-95 with 22 seconds remaining as Minnesota equaled its largest comeback of the season. "It was a disappointing loss," Milwaukee coach Terry Porter said. "We played 40 minutes of good basketball, but we had breakdowns getting back on defense. We gave up 25 points on the break, and they're not a fast-breaking team." "We still have to shore up some stuff on the defensive end," Minnesota interim coach Kevin McHale said. "I was very concerned about the 55 (points) we gave up in the first half. That's too many." Williams added 21 points and seven assists for the Bucks, who were attempting to sweep the season series from the Timberwolves for the first time since 1991-92.
