Game Story

CHICAGO (Ticker) -- Kevin Garnett's return home was n‹¡¥¹5 special but much better than that of the Chicago Bulls.

Garnett collected 15 points and 12 rebounds as the Minnesota Timberwolves toyed with the woeful Chicago Bulls in a 96-76 victory.

Garnett, who played his senior year of high school at Farragut Academy, was not his usual dominant self. He failed to lead the Timberwolves in scoring for just the third time this season as Wally Szczerbiak scored 18 points.

But Garnett and Minnesota came away with a win, which was more than Chicago could say. Playing their first game at the United Center since an 0-7 road trip, the Bulls failed to break 80 points for the fifth time this season.

Ron Mercer scored 20 points for Chicago (1-13), which has lost nine in a row since its lone win of the season over Orlando on November 9.
