Game Story

MINNEAPOLIS (Ticker) -- Bobby Jackson took advantage of an injury to point guard Terrell Brandon by posting his first career triple-double and teaching Sacramento Kings playmaker Jason Williams a lesson.

While Brandon nursed a sprained left ankle, Jackson took Williams to school, collecting 17 points, 11 rebounds and 12 assists to lead the red-hot Minnesota Timberwolves to a 105-90 rout of the Kings.

"I wasn't planning on getting a triple-double when I started tonight," Jackson said. "I just wanted to go out and play my game, get everyone involved and try to contain Jason Williams."

Jackson, a third-year player out of Minnesota, was 7-of-11 from the field, made 3-of-4 free throws and had two steals while playing 43 minutes. More importantly, he held Williams to a season-low two points in 25 minutes as the Timberwolves coasted to their seventh win in eight games.

"It's nice when your backup point guard comes in and gets a triple-double," Minnesota coach Flip Saunders said. "He has really come on and I'm very impressed. He knows the offense and he's more comfortable running things now. He's made a lot of progress and adjusted well. You can never really shut down a player like Jason Williams. Best thing to do in that offense is to score and he usually does."

Superstar forward Kevin Garnett had 31 points and 12 rebounds for Minnesota and scored seven points to fuel a 10-0 run in the third quarter that gave the Timberwolves a commanding 78-60 lead.

"KG was great," Saunders said. "We've come to expect what he does as the norm. I've always said the two best players in our conference are Kevin Garnett and Chris Webber."

Chris Webber led seven players in double figures with 14 points for the Kings, who suffered their third loss in four games and slipped to 2-3 on an eight-game, 16-day road trip.

"I don't like to lose," Webber said. "Give KG credit, along with his team. They deserved to win. It's a testament to coach Saunders. He has them playing really well."

Williams, who was ejected from Sunday's loss in New York, never appeared to find his rhythm tonight, managing seven assists and one rebound while making 1-of-4 shots.

This meeting was the first between the teams in the United States this season. They split a pair in Toyko in early November to tip off the NBA campaign.

The Timberwolves have won five straight home games against the Kings and eight of the last 11 meetings overall.

Anthony Peeler scored 18 points off the bench and Radoslav Nesterovic added 14 on 7-of-10 shooting for Minnesota, which shot 58 percent (46-of-79) and scored 24 points off turnovers.

Malik Sealy had 11 points for the Wolves, who held a 23-10 advantage in fast-break points against the high-flying Kings and held them below 100 points for the first time in 13 games.

Vlade Divac, Scot Pollard and Darrick Martin had 13 points apiece for the Kings, who shot 36 percent (34-of-95) and lost the battle on the boards, 47-36.

Nick Anderson drilled a 3-pointer to give the Kings an early 10-6 lead but Sacramento responded with a 20-4 run to take the lead for good. Jackson had a driving layup and 16-footer to cap the spurt.

"Bobby has stepped up all year," Garnett said. "Teams do not anticipate that. He had a triple-double. He's getting it done on both ends of the floor for us."

"Bobby Jackson stepped in and played very well," Anderson added. "Everybody has those games where things are going very well. You need to take advantage of your opportunities. When Terrell Brandon went down, the young man stepped up and did the job."

Garnett put the Kings away himself in the third quarter after Sacremanto used an 11-2 run to pull within 68-60. The 7-foot power forward made a 17-footer, dunked and knocked down a 3-pointer on successive trips to open a 75-60 bulge. Sam Mitchell followed with a three-point play that gave the Wolves an 18-point bulge.

"Sacramento is a great team," Peeler said. "When they started making their run, KG put on a show. He had a great matchup with Chris Webber. It was great to see and even better to have KG on our side."
