GAME RECAP

Kevin Garnett scored 22 points and Sam Mitchell added 17 as the Minnesota Timberwolves put an end to a five-game road losing streak with a 113-84 rout of the hapless Golden State Warriors.

Garnett scored 14 points in the first half as the Wolves opened a 59-39 advantage at intermission. Minnesota has taken four games from the Warriors this season by an average of 17 points and has won the last eight meetings between the teams.

"I thought we played together as a team tonight," Garnett said. "Our offense was clicking. We were really moving the ball around. On defense, we weren't giving them any good looks. We were very aggressive and took it to them in the beginning."

Donyell Marshall scored 17 points and Erick Dampier added 14 for the Warriors, who lost for the sixth time in eight games. Golden State also failed to reach the 100-point plateau for the 14th straight game.

Minnesota led from the start, opening on a 12-4 run, capped by Stephon Marbury's jumper at the 8:29 mark. Mitchell and Anthony Peeler led the surge with four points apiece.

The Wolves pushed the lead to 22-8 with 3:35 left in the opening quarter and they held a comfortable 31-14 advantage after one quarter behind eight points from Mitchell.

Minnesota still held a 49-35 lead with 3:03 left in half before scoring nine straight points, keyed by five from Marbury, for a 58-35 lead. Marbury finished with 14 points and 10 assists.

Garnett added nine rebounds, six assists and five steals for the Wolves, who shot 53 percent (50-of-94), while limiting the Warriors to only 36 percent (32-of-89) shooting.

"It's not so much that we won, it's how we played that made me happy," Minnesota coach Flip Saunders said. "We really picked it up on the defenive end. Sometimes it's not the wins and losses, but how you play. Kevin Garnett pretty much filled up the entire stat column."

Golden State trailed 88-62 after three quarters, but started the final quarter on a 9-2 run to draw within 90-71 with 8:35 to play. The Wolves then went on a 16-2 burst, capped by a pair of free throws from Chris Carr for a 106-73 cushion with 5:19 remaining.

"They played very well and shot the ball very well," Golden State coach P.J. Carlesimo said. "We were fatigued. I think our guys have worked hard and I think we went too hard in practice yesterday. We just didn't seem to have any energy tonight. We didn't defend, we weren't quick to rebounds and obviously we didn't execute our offense."
