Game Story

MINNEAPOLIS (Ticker) -- Kevin Garnett had 27 points, 14 rebounds and six assists and the Minnesota Timberwolves took advantage of another fourth-quarter collapse by the Golden State Warriors for an 89-78 victory that snapped a three-game losing streak.

Garnett also had three blocked shots in his best all-around game of the season. He made 11-of-18 free throws -- both career highs -- while the Warriors sank 12-of-17.

"Kevin Garnett had a 40-point night right in his fingertips," Minnesota coach Flip Saunders said. "He had a career for attempted free throws. Well, he probably missed a career high, too. To his credit, he made some big shots down the stretch."

Despite being unable to contain Garnett, the Warriors led by eight points with less than nine minutes to go but went without a point for nearly five minutes, surrendering the lead. They scored nine points in the final 8:56.

"Right now, we don't have an understanding of what we are going to do in the fourth," Warriors guard John Starks said. "We call plays but we are not executing. You don't get the lead for three quarters, go into the fourth and then blow up. That's not the way basketball is played."

On Sunday in Phoenix, Golden State managed only six points in the final period, tying the NBA record low.

Stephon Marbury scored 13 of his 19 points in the fourth quarter for the Wolves, who avenged a last-second loss at Golden State on February 15. Minnesota averted its first four-game losing streak since last March.

Chris Mills scored a season-high 21 points for Golden State, which shot 21 percent (4-of-19) and committed five turnovers in the fourth quarter.

"The third quarter we defended well, but then we stopped defending in the fourth," Warriors coach P.J. Carlesimo said. "In the fourth quarter we had a big advantage in terms of fouls and then we started settling for a lot of poor shots. We had too many turnovers and Minnesota outworked us on the offensive boards, which is supposed to be one of our strengths."

The Warriors led 63-59 after three quarters and opened a 69-61 advantage on Tony Delk's lay-in with 8:56 remaining. But they went scoreless for the next 4:44 as the Wolves rattled off 13 straight points.

Malik Sealy, Garnett and Joe Smith made jumpers and Garnett added a free throw after a turnover by Golden State, cutting the deficit to 69-68 with 6:27 left. Smith made a layup before Marbury hit a jumper and a runner around a Warriors timeout, giving the Wolves a 74-69 lead with 4:45 to play.

"The biggest key was that we went to a small lineup," Saunders said. "We put Malik in there along with A.P. (Anthony Peeler), K.G., Joe. ... and Steph showed shades of playoff basketball."

Starks answered with a 3-pointer to end the drought and Bimbo Coles made a free throw. Marbury had a jumper and a steal, setting up Sealy's two free throws that gave Minnesota a 78-73 advantage with 3:31 left.

Garnett blocked a shot by Coles, who argued and was hit with a technical foul. Sealy made the free throw and Marbury added two more for an 81-73 bulge with 2:25 to play.

"We didn't execute, settled for quick shots and didn't hit the boards," Coles said. "It's been our downfall the last two games, when we've been up and had the opportunity to close teams out."

Smith scored 14 points and Sealy and Anthony Peeler added 11 apiece for the Wolves, who shot just 37 percent (29-of-78) from the field but held a 49-38 rebounding edge and made 30-of-39 free throws.

"In the fourth quarter we played really well," Peeler said. "In the first three quarters, we were kind of forcing our shots. We have a lot of confidence in the fourth quarter that we will play strong. Everyone bore down and played defense."

Starks scored 15 points and Delk and Jason Caffey added nine apiece for the Warriors, who shot 39.5 percent (30-of-76) and committed 20 turnovers.

Mills scored 10 points in the first quarter as Golden State ran to a 22-16 lead. The Warriors opened the margin to 30-19 on two free throws by Delk with 9:11 left in the second quarter before settling for a 44-40 halftime lead.

Garnett scored nine points in the third quarter to keep the Wolves close.
