GAME RECAP

Tom Gugliotta scored 10 of his season-high 30 points in the fourth quarter, when the Minnesota Timberwolves rallied from a 10-point deficit and edged the Philadelphia 76ers, 94-90, to snap a five-game losing streak.

Gugliotta started an 8-0 burst midway through the period with a jumper, hit consecutive jumpers down the stretch and sank a pair of clutch free throws with 16 seconds to go as Minnesota held Philadelphia without a field goal for nearly the final seven minutes.

"He made some big shots down the stretch," Timberwolves coach Flip Saunders said. "Defensively, we turned it up a notch, especially down the stretch. We made them take tough shots and contested every shot."

Kevin Garnett scored 15 points and Stephon Marbury added 14 and 14 assists for the Timberwolves, who had not won on the road since November 18th at Phoenix.

"Marbury was fabulous," Saunders said. "You look at a guy who had 14 assists, did not have a turnover all night, and really controlled the tempo of the game."

"I got my team going tonight," Marbury said. "Googs was hot and I was finding him. My job was to find my teammates early and to get my teammates going."

Allen Iverson returned from a one-game benching to score 22 points for the 76ers, who have lost three straight games and eight of 10. Iverson missed a pair of jumpers in the final 90 seconds as the Sixers managed just six free throws in the last 6:55, missing their last 10 shots from the floor.

It hurts. We had our chances," Sixers coach Larry Brown said. "We did not play very smart down the stretch and did not get any stops. That's what happens when you play like that. They made shots and we took some bad shots and had some bad turnovers. We did not use the clock well either."

Iverson, the 1997 Rookie of the Year, shot 7-of-17 from the field and added six assists. He missed a practice Sunday in New York and did not play in Monday's loss at Boston. It was the first time in Brown's long pro career that he recalled having to bench a player.

A 16-footer by Terry Cummings with 6:55 remaining was the last basket for the 76ers and a free throw by Iverson 19 seconds later extended the lead to 85-75 before the Wolves rallied.

Gugliotta's 19-footer started the burst. Previously scoreless Stanley Roberts made a free throw, Chris Carr buried a three-pointer and Marbury hit a driving layup to cut the deficit to 85-83 with 3:01 to play.

After two foul shots by Philadelphia's Jimmy Jackson, Gugliotta made a pair of jumpers around a free throw by Cummings to close Minnesota to 88-87 with 1:48 left. Marbury and Iverson traded misses before a dunk by Roberts gave the Wolves the lead for good with 59 seconds remaining.

"We move the ball around well," Gugliotta said. "They found me when I was open on different offensive sets we ran and guys were penetrating to the lane, which enable us to get open shots outside."

Iverson missed again and Gugliotta extended the lead to 91-88 with a pair of foul shots with 16 seconds to go. Iverson and Marbury each made two free throws before Jerry Stackhouse did not hit the rim on a potential tying three-pointer.

"I had a good look," Stackhouse said. "I just shot before I actually caught it and it got away from me.

"We had a momentum swing. The guys that were in the game at the start of the fourth quarter did a good job of extending the lead. When we came in, we were a little slow and lethargic and could not sustain the lead. We could not get anything going offensively. We just started going one-on-one, as usual."

Kevin Garnett scored 15 points and Cherokee Parks added 12 for the Wolves, who shot 43 percent (36-of-84) from the field and made 20-of-26 free throws. Roberts grabbed 10 rebounds.

Jackson and Stackhouse scored 12 points apiece and Cummings 10 with 11 rebounds for the Sixers, who shot 42 percent (34-of-81) and held a 50-48 edge on the glass. Stackhouse was 4-of-11 from the floor, missed four free throws and had five turnovers.

Gugliotta scored 16 points in the first half as Minnesota took a 50-47 lead. But the Wolves managed just 16 points in the third quarter, when Stackhouse's seven points helped the Sixers open a 71-66 lead entering the final period.

The Sixers did not activate forward Derrick Coleman, who has been sidelined since November 20th with an irregular heartbeat but was cleared to play Tuesday.
