Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- Red-hot rookie Marc Jackson scored a career-high 31 points as the Golden State Warriors routed the Minnesota Timberwolves for the second time this season, 120-99, snapping a five-game losing streak.

Jackson made 11-of-17 shots and added 10 rebounds and five blocks. Since being inserted as the starting center in place of the injured Erick Dampier six games ago, the Temple product is averaging 23.8 points per game.

"Good players get better with time," Jackson said. "So the more I play, the better I can get. Every game I want to do more to help the team."

For the second time this season, the Warriors blew out the Timberwolves, defeating the Wolves by the same margin that they did on November 25.

"We beat Minnesota twice and these were two needed victories," Jackson said. "We have to take our spirit from this game and continue to play hard and get more victories. We've got to come together as a team to get these victories no matter what."

Kevin Garnett scored 29 points and pulled down 16 rebounds and William Avery added a career-high 16 points and six assists for Minnesota, which had a two-game winning streak snapped.

"They played harder than us," Minnesota coach Flip Saunders said. "They came out. I thought we had one guy with our first unit that didn't get dominated and that was (Garnett) at his position. At the other positions, they went after us and we did not respond extremely well. We have nothing to feel sorry about. You feel sorry when you don't play well and you miss some shots and the ball doesn't bounce your way, but we didn't give ourselves a chance."

"I don't know anything about Marc Jackson. You score 28 points in a couple of games and now you're talking (stuff)?," Garnett said. "Come on man, play the game. That ain't cool. Don't come out talking crazy to me though. I'm not that personal. I guess when you win you can say what you want, but not to me."

Garnett has led the Wolves in scoring in 20 of 25 games this season.

"I don't take this game personal," Garnett added. "I take winning and losing personal. They beat us. I'm probably talking with a lot of frustration. I'm on record talking about my frustration. That's how I'm feeling right now. I'll look forward to tomorrow's game against the Clippers."

With 9:46 to go, Avery capped a 5-0 spurt that pulled the Wolves within 91-84. But Jackson converted two free throws and a jumper in a 13-2 run that was capped by Larry Hughes' free throw with 6:12 to play.

Jackson's tip-in with 4:40 to go pushed the lead to 109-92. Avery made a 3-pointer to cut the deficit to 14 but the Timberwolves got no closer.

Antawn Jamison scored 20 of his 26 points in the first half for the Warriors. Mookie Blaylock finished one rebound shy of a triple-double with 18 points and 10 assists.

Chris Porter added his first career double-double with 14 points and a career-high 10 rebounds for Golden State.

"Marc and Chris are getting their chance," Blaylock said. "They have stepped up and that's exactly what this team needs is for people to step up when someone goes down and they are doing a good job of it."

Six of the eight players used scored in double figures for injury-ridden Golden State, which shot 52 percent (44-85) from the field.

The Warriors led by as many as 15 points in the first half and led 65-52 at the break behind Jackson's 20 points.

"We lost in the first quarter," Saunders said. "You can't give up 30 points on the road. The tone was set that it was not going to be for us."

Jackson leads all rookies in points per game and field goal percentage in the month of December.

Golden State's 65 points in the first half, tied a season high, set against Utah on December 9. Golden State is 2-1 against the Timberwolves this season, with the final game to be played in February.

"It was disappointing that we had a little thing going and then we (wasted) it away with a loss like this," Garnett added. "They kicked our (butts). We never made any stops and they were able to do what they wanted. That's totally unacceptable to everyone in this (darn) locker room. On top of that, their guys were laughing in our (darn) faces. It's all good, we see them one more time. If we see them laugh, we can see them cry."
