Game Story

MINNEAPOLIS (Ticker) -- The Milwaukee Bucks could not keep Kevin Garnett off the boards, and he kept them away from a victory. Garneet had 28 points and tied his own team record with 24 rebounds as the Minnesota Timberwolves defeated the Bucks, 114-110, to remain unbeaten at home. Minnesota took the lead for good, 101-100, on a pair of free throws by Garnett with 3:09 to play. Kendall Gill added a 3-pointer 31 seconds later, but the Bucks climbed within 111-110 on Ray Allen's driving layup with four seconds to play. Gill immediately was fouled and sank the first of two free throws. He missed the second, but Garnett controlled the rebound and tipped it to Troy Hudson, who made a pair from the line to ice the contest. "Gill's three was big for them," Bucks coach George Karl said. "It was back and forth before that. I don't know how we lost him. We were in a rotation situation and he just snuck out there. That was the back-breaker." Garnett, who made 9-of-17 shots, set a franchise record with 19 defensive rebounds. "KG played unbelievably," Minnesota coach Flip Saunders said. "He really played well on the defensive end. KG had a huge fourth quarter to help us get the win. It was a good win to get against a team shooting the ball well and playing well the past week." Both teams shot 51 percent from the floor, with Minnesota making 44-of-87 attempts and Milwaukee 46-of-91. "We shot 50 percent and didn't win," Karl said. "That shouldn't happen. We certainly played well enough offensively to win but not good enough defensively. It came down to Kevin Garnett. He played some pretty amazing basketball down the stretch." Wally Szczerbiak, who made his season debut after dislocating a bone in his left foot in a preseason game against Milwaukee, scored 19 points and Hudson added 13 and 11 assists. "It was great to see Wally back on the court," Garnett said. "He was fired up. Teams have to pay attention to Wally or he'll score 50. It's good to have one of my teammates back. I'm happy for him." "Everyone was carrying me," said Szczerbiak, who shot 6-of-13. "We'll see how this feels tomorrow. I sure got a very shocking debut chasing Ray Allen through those screens and running around. I'll just have to monitor it and see how I feel. Although I shot the ball pretty well, I just wasn't myself moving around out there. My balance felt a little funny." Sam Cassell had 32 points and Allen 27 for the Bucks, who had won their previous two games and handed New Jersey its first loss on Wednesday. "At the end of the game, nothing went our way," Allen said. "We didn't get any calls, we were fouling them and sending them to the free-throw line. You talk about the end of the game and situations that can arise to help you win a game. I think those were all positive in the direction of the Timberwolves tonight." The game featured 22 lead changes and 22 ties. Milwaukee never led by more than seven points, Minnesota never by more than six. The score was tied after one quarter, 29-29. Minnesota led at halftime, 56-54, and Milwaukee was in front 85-83 after three quarters. "It was a great game," said Bucks forward Tim Thomas, who had eight points in 35 minutes. "It was a winnable game for us. That's what happens on the road when you can't close it out. We played well, but we just couldn't get it done." Milwaukee reserve Toni Kukoc, who scored 26 points in the win over the Nets, had just three points before getting ejected with 5:54 to play in the second quarter for picking up two quick technicals. He argued a foul call after battling Garnett for a rebound. "It was ridiculous," Karl said of Kukoc's ejection. "I don't think I've ever seen one of my best players get booted like that. Toni told me he didn't even use any swear words. I thought it was an overreaction."
