Game Story

MINNEAPOLIS (Ticker) -- Kevin Garnett scored 24 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, leading the Minnesota Timberwolves to their third straight win, 105-96 over the Sacramento Kings.

Minnesota had three offensive rebounds during an 8-3 run, extending to a 103-91 lead with 54 seconds remaining. Garnett punctuated the spurt by slamming home a miss by Terrell Brandon.

Minnesota gained an 11-4 fourth-quarter advantage in the rebounding department, including 7-2 on the offensive boards. The Timberwolves led in the game, 49-43, and 17-12 offensively.

Garnett has been the Timberwolves leading scorer the last three games, averaging 24.7 points.

"We're starting to put it together," Garnett said. "I told you guys it would take some time. Things are different now. I have to come out aggressively and set an example for my teammates, both on offense and defense."

Sam Mitchell put back his own miss with 2:29 remaining to put Minnesota ahead 97-88. Tom Hammonds rebounded his miss, the Timberwolves passed the ball around the perimeter before Hammonds slammed home a Sam Mitchell feed for a 99-91 advantage with 1:43 left.

Hammonds finished with a season-high 23 points and Brandon dished out a career-best 16 assists one night after totaling 15, helping Minnesota to its sixth win in the last seven outings with the Kings.

"I'm getting in a basketbal rhythm now," Hammonds said. "I'm a lot more aggressive than I was earlier in the season, and we need scoring from everywhere. We can't take anybody for granted. All of these games are tough."

"Tom Hammonds played extremely well during this homestand," Minnesota coach Flip Saunders said. "He's worked extremely hard the last couple of weeks and it's really paid off. He's more comfortable and more confident."

Vlade Divac scored 19 points for Sacramento and Chris Webber added 15 and 10 rebounds after missing two games with the flu. The Kings have dropped three of their last four.

"I'm trying to do my best and help the team, but we've got to have a much better team effort," Divac said. "We're in a good position. We just have to take advantage of it."

Sacramento ran off eight straight points in less than a minute to open an 18-10 lead with 5:07 left in the first quarter. Corliss Williamson scored five points during the spurt and finished the period with nine.

A 11-0 burst by the Timberwolves turned a five-point deficit into a 36-30 lead with 8:08 remaining in the first half. Bobby Jackson scored six points in the burst, helping Minnesota gain a 55-46 halftime lead.

Minnesota outscored Sacramento 32-18 in the second period and shot 58 percent (15-of-26) from the field while holding the Kings to 33 percent (6-of-18).

The Timberwolves were ahead by 15 points early in the third quarter before Sacramento scored nine straight points in four minutes to close within 63-57. Minnesota answered with an 8-2 spurt to end the period as Hammonds had four points.
