Game Story

MINNEAPOLIS (Ticker) -- Derek Anderson scored six of his 24 points in overtime as the Portland Trail Blazers defeated the Minnesota Timberwolves, 98-92. With the victory, the Trail Blazers completed a 3-2 road trip and prevented the Timberwolves from recording a season-high third straight triumph. "Gutsy win," Portland coach Maurice Cheeks said. "After (a 101-79 loss at Milwaukee on Friday) where we got the crap beat out of us, that's a gutsy win. We were 3-2 on the trip, and we could've been 4-1 if we win in New Jersey. It's a big win for us." Portland led the entire extra session after Dale Davis nailed a jump shot 28 seconds in that made it 87-85. After Kevin Garnett sank a baseline jumper to get Minnesota within 89-88 with 3:45 to play, Bonzi Wells made 1-of-2 free throws and a layup and Anderson sank a clutch 3-pointer from the right corner to give the Blazers a 95-88 advantage with 1:48 remaining. The Timberwolves got no closer than five points thereafter. "We usually don't pass the ball, and that's how you win games," Anderson said. "When we passed it in overtime, we had open shots." Rasheed Wallace contributed 18 points and 11 rebounds and Davis 15 and 14 for Portland, which outrebounded Minnesota, 59-47. "Rebounding hurt us tonight," Minnesota coach Flip Saunders said. "Sometimes, when Kevin has to guard a guy like Bonzi Wells who takes him out to the perimeter, it takes him away from the bucket. He's one of the top three rebounders in the league. When he has to play so far away from the basket, it hurts us." "They outrebounded us from the start," said Joe Smith, who had 10 points and 11 rebounds. "We kept giving them two or three opportunities off the initial defense, and they were able to get in there and get the offensive put-backs." Wells added 15 points and Zach Randolph 12 for Portland, which had six players reach double figures. "We showed a lot of togetherness," Wells said. "We had a nice meeting today and we had a good shootaround. After getting blown out of the gym last night, we could've come in and rolled over. But we stuck together and won." "We won - that's the key," Anderson said. "Believe in yourself and each other, and give yourself a chance to win. You won't win every one, but if you give yourself a chance to win, that's all you can do. It's good that we went 3-2 on this trip. We stunk the other day. We just have to be more consistent." Garnett scored 21 points but connected on just 9-of-27 shots for Minnesota, which limited Portland to 41 percent (38-of-92) from the floor but made only 39 percent (38-of-97). "It wasn't falling," said Garnett, who had only eight points on 3-of-14 shooting through three quarters. "I was thinking too much." "Even when KG's struggling, we'll still go to him because he has that ability to get the shots," said Troy Hudson, who scored 10 of his 14 points in the first quarter. "Or they're going to double-team him, and that opens up someone else." With the game tied, 85-85, and 10 seconds remaining in regulation, Wallace missed a jumper, but Davis controlled the offensive rebound. Davis was tied up by Joe Smith but won the jump ball, and the Blazers called timeout with 7.1 seconds left to set up a final play. But Wallace front-rimmed a 3-pointer from the top of the arc, sending the game into overtime. Portland trailed by two points at the half but went on a 22-5 run midway through the third quarter to take a 76-68 advantage into the final 12 minutes. But the Blazers shot just 1-of-20 from the field in the fourth quarter, allowing the Timberwolves to come back.
