Game Story

MINNEAPOLIS (Ticker) -- Kendall Gill's jumper from just inside the 3-point line with 10 seconds left allowed the Minnesota Timberwolves to hold on for a 102-95 victory over the Golden State Warriors. The Timberwolves nearly blew a 17-point lead. After 5-5 Earl Boykins hit an acrobatic shot in the lane with 33 seconds left to cut the deficit to 98-95, the Warriors tried for a stop instead of fouling to stop the clock. "The shots Minnesota made down the stretch weren't easy," Warriors coach Eric Musselman said. "They made tough shots ... they weren't getting good looks." Golden State double-teamed Troy Hudson, who had 23 points and 11 assists. Hudson found Gill in the corner, and Gill held the ball to run some time before finally sinking the decisive shot. "This wasn't an easy game for us," Gill said. "We were coming off two losses, and there's no doubt we were pretty tired, getting back at 2 in the morning after last night's game. There's no doubt that Golden State is a hungry team. They're pretty tough to deal with. This is a big win for us." Rookie Igor Rakocevic hit a layup with 2.8 seconds left to provide the final margin. Jason Richardson scored 15 of his 32 points in the first quarter to lead the Warriors, who had won five of their last six games. After trailing by as many as 17 points in the third quarter, Golden State used a 17-4 run to draw within 86-85 as Bob Sura tipped in a missed jumper by Boykins with 5:16 to play. "I think if we would've gotten over the hump, we would've gotten them," Richardson said. "But Minnesota is a real good team. They know how to win and are a playoff team." Boykins scored eight of his 20 points in the fourth quarter and helped Golden State get back into the game by drawing a fifth foul on Hudson with 6:47 left. Hudson sat down but returned less than two minutes later scored five points in the final 2:12. "They were going at Troy and trying to get him in trouble and out of the game," Minnesota coach Flip Saunders said. "They knew that we would have to go with (Rakocevic), who hasn't played very much. That's how they got themselves back in the game. We called that 20-second timeout, came out, hit a couple of big shots and kind of regained the momentum a little bit." Hudson bounced back from a 2-of-12 shooting performance at Houston on Tuesday by making 9-of-17 shots, including 3-of-6 on 3-pointers. "If I didn't shoot the ball well tonight, who knows the slump I would've ended up in?" Hudson said. "I needed this game." Kevin Garnett collected 21 points and 14 rebounds for Minnesota, which stopped a two-game slide. The Warriors have lost three consecutive games to the Timberwolves and have won just twice in their last 13 games in Minnesota. Minnesota led by as many as 14 points in the first half before Golden State cut the deficit to 61-55 midway through the third quarter. The Timberwolves responded with a 16-5 run, opening their largest lead at 77-60 with 2:01 left. Hudson scored seven points during the run and Gill added five.
