Game Story

PHOENIX (Ticker) -- Kevin Garnett is rarely outplayed by any one player, but on Friday he was outdone by two.

Shawn Marion had 18 points and 13 rebounds and Bo Outlaw scored a season-high 16 points as the Phoenix Suns rallied for an 81-76 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves, who got a season-low four points from Garnett.

Garnett is one of the best power forwards in the league but was thoroughly beaten by Marion and Outlaw, who combined to spark Phoenix's offense and shut down Minnesota's main scoring threat.

Despite the poor performance from Garnett, the Timberwolves had a 70-63 lead in the fourth quarter before the Suns scored 12 of the next 13 points.

Dan Majerle's long 3-pointer gave Phoenix the lead for good, 73-71, before Stephon Marbury capped the burst with a 17-foot jumper.

utlaw, a 42 percent free-throw shooter, sank a pair of clutch free throws with 74 seconds left and sealed the victory with a breakaway drunk with five seconds remaining.

Marbury finished with 28 points for Phoenix, which won its second straight game despite shooting a season-low 35.7 percent (30-of-84) from the field.

Wally Szczerbiak scored 27 points and Chauncey Billups added 17 for the Timberwolves, who have lost a season-high three straight games for the third time this season.

Garnett collected 18 rebounds and six assists but made just 2-of-17 shots and did not attempt a free throw.
