GAME RECAP

Kevin Garnett scored 21 points and Stephon Marbury had six of his 12 in a fourth-quarter run as the Minnesota Timberwolves defeated the reeling Golden State Warriors for the seventh straight time, 103-87.

Tom Gugliotta and Cherokee Parks scored 14 points apiece for the Timberwolves, who tied a season high with their third straight win and moved three games above .500 (19-16) for just the second time in franchise history.

The Wolves were clinging to a two-point lead before Marbury scored six points and Parks four in a 17-1 burst that broke open the game and dealt the Warriors their seventh consecutive loss.

Donyell Marshall had 19 points and nine rebounds for Golden State, which has not beaten Minnesota since December 18th, 1996, including all three meetings this season. The Warriors were held below 90 points for the 12th straight game and dropped to 2-16 on the road.

"Down the stretch we missed a few shots," said Warriors forward Joe Smith, who was held to 10 points, seven below his average. "The Wolves went on a run and we couldn't answer. I thought we broke down at both ends. The Wolves are a good team and we hung in there for 3 1/2 quarters."

A fast-break layup by Duane Ferrell pulled Golden State within 75-73 with 10:22 to play before a three-pointer by Terry Porter triggered the decisive run. Gugliotta made a banker and Parks converted two free throws before an 18-footer by Sam Mitchell extended the lead to 86-73 with 8:24 remaining.

Erick Dampier ended Golden State's drought with a free throw, but Marbury made a three-pointer and a three-point play to cap the burst at 92-74 with 5:20 left. The Warriors got no closer than 13 points thereafter.

"Stephon made some big plays," Minnesota coach Flip Saunders said. "We made some big plays that were what I call energy plays, where we get Kevin a couple of dunks, get him really into the game, get the crowd into the game. Stephon made a circus shot, I guess you could say, and those were exciting-type plays that they can make. Those generate not only enthusiasm and energy for us but also for the crowd."

Marshall scored six points in a 12-0 run that gave Golden State a 64-56 lead with 4:14 left in the third quarter. But Minnesota answered with its own 12-0 burst fueled by five points from Garnett, including a jumper that gave the Wolves the lead for good. Minnesota led 70-66 entering the final period.

"We left a couple of guys open, and they hit some shots," Porter said. "We just talked about turning it up defensively. We didn't want to let them get open shots and we wanted to get down the open court."

Porter scored 13 points and Mitchell and Chris Carr added 10 apiece for the Wolves, who shot 45 percent (36-of-80) from the field and held a 52-38 rebounding advantage. Gugliotta grabbed eight rebounds and Parks seven, and Marbury handed out seven assists.

"You always have to be ready to catch the ball with Steph, Googs and Terry in there," Parks said. "I'm afraid if I miss one of their passes or bobble one they might never pass to me again. I have to be alert."

Dampier scored 13 points and Bimbo Coles and Tony Delk added 12 apiece for the Warriors, who shot 38 percent (31-of-81) and were outscored 28-20 at the line. Coles had seven assists.

"They got really good play off the bench," Warriors coach P.J. Carlesimo said. "I thought Terry and Cherokee really played well. Parks really hurt us in the third quarter."

Gugliotta scored 10 points and Garnett nine in the first half, which ended with Minnesota holding a 45-42 lead.
