Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- Donyell Marshall burned his former team, scoring nine of his 14 points in the fourth quarter as the Golden State Warriors cooled off the Minnesota Timberwolves, 89-82.

Chris Mills hit a trio of key jumpers in the final minutes and also finished with 14 points for the Warriors, who posted their seventh straight home win. It is their longest home winning streak since a 10-game run from February 15-March 24, 1994.

Marshall buried a short jumper to highlight an 8-1 spurt early in the fourth that helped Golden State take control. He also helped the Warriors hold the Timberwolves without a field goal for the first 6 1/2 minutes of the quarter.

"They were talking a lot of junk out there. You start to take that a little personal," Marshall said. "He (Kevin Garnett) was talking about taking me to the hole, and how he was just going to use me and abuse me out there. I got pumped up off of that. He's a great player, but I'm not going to bow down to anyone."

Garnett scored 22 points for Minnesota, but just 10 of those came after the first quarter. The Timberwolves, who also lost at Golden State last month, had won four of their last five games.

"Donyell did as good a job as you can do on Kevin Garnett," said Warriors coach P.J. Carlesimo.

"I don't need any kind of tissue, or tell a sob story, but we should have won tonight," Garnett said.

Minnesota lost on the same day it saw the departure of star point guard Stephon Marbury, who was traded to the New Jersey Nets in a blockbuster three-team deal. Bobby Jackson started at the point, scoring 15 points on 6-of-19 shooting to go with his eight assists, seven rebounds and four steals.

"At first, I was rushing things, throwing the ball away," Jackson said. "I was kind of frustrated because I had never done anything like that."

"Regrouping is one of the hardest things. Now we have to catch our wind, not to go in a different direction," Garnett added. "It's not necessary to make changes, but we have to find the chemistry. That's what you're losing when you lose a major part of the puzzle.

The Timberwolves will receive Terrell Brandon from the Milwaukee Bucks in the deal.

Joe Smith, playing against his former team, was jeered all game by the Warriors' crowd and finished with 14 points on 5-of-15 shooting and 15 rebounds.

"That probably won't go away as long as I'm in the league. It's something I have to get used to," Smith said of the boos. "Sometimes I hear it, but it really doesn't bother me."

Golden State led 63-61 after three quarters and Tony Delk buried a 16-footer to spark the key 8-1 spurt. Adonal Foyle followed with a short hook shot and, after Garnett hit a free throw, Marshall sank his jumper and Erick Dampier made two free throws for a 71-62 lead with 7:54 to play.

A 3-pointer by Anthony Peeler, who scored 11 points, pulled Minnesota within 78-75 with 3:49 remaining. Mills answered with back-to-back jumpers from the right wing and, after the Timberwolves' Sam Mitchell sank two free throws, hit a 14-footer with 1:49 left made it 84-77.

"We really needed them. We really needed baskets," Mills said of his jumpers down the stretch. "Toward the end of the game, if I have those looks, I'm going to take them."

Jackson drilled his first 3-pointer of the game with 25 seconds remaining to cut it to 84-80, but Bimbo Coles sank 3-of-4 free throws and John Starks added a pair to seal the win.

Golden State had six players score in double figures, including Starks with 12 and Delk with 11. Dampier had 11 points and 10 rebounds and Foyle added 10 and eight off the Warriors' bench, which outscored the Timberwolves' reserves, 32-18.

Besides missing Marbury, Minnesota also lost guard Malik Sealy, who left in the first quarter with a sprained left ankle.

The Timberwolves shot just 33 percent (30-of-91) from the field.

"Now you go to your bench players, and they have to step up, and then you lose Sealy, then you're down," said Minnesota coach Flip Saunders. "Stephon has been like a football team has a quarterback. Then you have to practice without him. Jackson did a nice job. He was thrust into a role and he not only played, he played hard."
