GAME RECAP

Rod Strickland scored six of his 21 points in overtime and Chris Webber had 22 points and 17 rebounds, lifting the Washington Bullets to their second road win in as many nights, 91-88 over the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Strickland had a pair of jumpers and two free throws in overtime, accounting for six of the Wizards' nine points. Washington, which moved to .500, was coming off Wednesday's 90-83 triumph at Chicago.

"It was a tough game because the guys were going after each other. Every shot was contested," said Washington coach Bernie Bickerstaff. "You had two young teams with energy playing hard. We really hung in there after an emotional win over Chicago.

"Strickland played a great game, but I'm sure he took a lot of punishment going to the basket. When they put this in the win column, they won't put ugly."

Minnesota, which suffered its second consecutive home loss, blew a chance to tie in the closing seconds of overtime when Stephon Marbury misfired on a three-pointer with five seconds left, Terry Davis grabbed the rebound and the Wizards ran out the clock.

Marbury led the Timberwolves with 26 points, 10 assists and five steals and Kevin Garnett added 20 points and a career-high 20 rebounds, tying a franchise record.

Minnesota shot just 37.6 from the field, missing 58 of 93 field goal attempts.

"We just didn't play well. If it wasn't for Kevin Garnett, we would have been in big trouble," said Minnesota coach Flip Saunders. "We fell behind, we got challenged and never really found a comfort level as far as executing. There was no flow to the game."

The Timberwolves opened their biggest lead of the second half, 56-50, with 5:45 left in the third quarter following a three-pointer by Chris Carr, who finished with 18 points.

Washington regained the lead by going on a 10-0 run, capped by a Davis layup with 3:56 remaining in the third quarter that made it 60-56. Davis scored six of his 11 points during the spurt. He also had 12 rebounds.

Minnesota tied the game three times in the fourth quarter, but never grabbed the lead.

Garnett's jumper with 20.5 seconds remaining in regulation tied the game, 82-82. The score remained the same going into OT, but not before Strickland missed two shots and Davis one on Washington's final possession of the fourth quarter.

The Wizards scored the first six points of overtime, with Davis hitting a shot in the lane and Strickland connecting on a jumper and two free throws.

After Minnesota missed its first four shots in the extra period, Gugliotta -- who struggled with a 4-for-23 effort from the field -- hit a jumper at the 2:22 mark to make it 88-84. Marbury made back-to-back baseline shots, the second with 51 seconds left to tie it, 88-88.

"We struggled and played tentative," said Gugliotta. "We did not execute all night long. They slowed the tempo down and it hurt us and we could not figure out their half-court trap. I played terrible."

Washington moved ahead for good, 90-88, when Strickland hit a short jumper in the lane with 27.6 seconds to go. Webber added a free throw 17 seconds later for the final margin.

"Minnesota is a very good team at home," said Webber. "We wanted to get a win on the road. Right now we are playing better on the road. When you struggle like we did tonight, it's a good win."

The Wizards played without Juwan Howard, who has lower back spasms suffered in Wednesday's win.
