Seattle (18-8) at Minnesota (10-13) 8:00 pm EST ---------------------------------------------------------------- MINNEAPOLIS (Ticker) -- Coming off their first three-game sweep of a road trip in team history, the Minnesota Timberwolves hope to continue their success tonight as they host the Seattle SuperSonics.

After enduring a season-high eight-game losing streak, the Timberwolves completed a 3-0 trip with their first-ever win at Chicago on Wednesday.

Kevin Garnett had 22 points and 13 rebounds against the Bulls and was enthusiastic about his team's chances to move back up the Western Conference standings.

"We're on the right road. We have been coming to each game lately and not been complacent. That's the lesson we've learned from our losing streak," Garnett said.

Gary Payton scored 28 points but did not get much help from his teammates as the Sonics suffered a 113-103 loss at Indiana on Wednesday. Seattle is 1-1 on its three-game road trip and 8-5 overall away from home.

Seattle has dominated the all-time series between the teams, winning 34 of 40 contests, including a 110-94 decision at Key Arena on December 8.
