Game Story

MINNEAPOLIS (Ticker) -- Joe Smith, Kevin Garnett and the Minnesota Timberwolves took advantage of the window of opportunity provided by Chris Webber. Smith contributed a season-high 25 points and 10 rebounds and Garnett added 24, 15 and eight assists as the Timberwolves defeated the Sacramento Kings, 115-109, in overtime. After Webber missed a free throw that would have snapped a 103-103 tie with 1.3 seconds left in regulation, the Timberwolves seemed energized, scoring the first seven points of the extra session on jumpers by Kendall Gill, Garnett and Smith and a free throw by Rod Strickland. "We gave ourselves a great chance to win," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "That's what you want to do on the road. We played a good second half. They just ran out of gas in overtime. We had the opportunity, we just couldn't get it done." Sacramento, which had a four-game winning streak snapped, got within 112-109 after Peja Stojakovic's technical foul shot with 53 seconds left. But Webber - who both turned his left ankle and suffered a cut above his left eyebrow in the fourth quarter - lost an offensive rebound off his head out of bounds with 39 seconds left. Minnesota's Rasho Nesterovic concluded the scoring with a tip that appeared to be offensive goaltending with 17 seconds remaining. Nesterovic added 15 points, Strickland 13, and Gill and Wally Szczerbiak 10 apiece for Minnesota, which has beaten Sacramento in two of their first three meetings this season. Szczerbiak had missed 21 games with an infected toe. "I think as I play more games and get my legs under me, I will continue to increase the minutes that I play," said Szczerbiak, who played 16 minutes and made all four of his shots. "Our coaching staff did a good job of monitoring my minutes. My foot felt good tonight, and I was happy to get out there and contribute." "He played 16 minutes, had 10 points and hit a big three," Minnesota coach Flip Saunders. "He just helps out a lot with giving Kendall some rest opportunities. For not having practiced much at all, he played extremely well." Minnesota led, 103-99, after Gill sank 1-of-2 free throws with 35 seconds left. Sacramento halved its deficit on two free throws from Vlade Divac nine seconds later before Webber forced a jump ball by tying up Strickland with 11 seconds left. Webber got cut on the play and did not talk to the media after the game because he needed to be stitched up. Webber won the jump ball, then tied the game on a driving layup with 1.3 seconds left. Webber appeared to get away with a travel and a push-off on Smith, but Smith was whistled for fouling Webber, giving him a chance to put the Kings ahead. "That looked like a travel," Minnesota guard Troy Hudson said. "And if (Webber) didn't travel, he cleared out with the left arm. It shouldn't have been an "and one." We were holding our breath on the free throw." But Webber, who had sank just six of his first 10 attempts from the line, missed the free throw and the rebound went to Garnett, who called timeout with one second left. Garnett could not get a shot off after the ball was inbounded to him, and the game went into overtime. Although Sacramento easily outscored Minnesota in the paint, 54-36, the Timberwolves manhandled the Kings on the glass, 57-35, and had 20 second-chance points to the Kings' eight. "They're a long team," Adelman said. "That's a problem we've had in the past. We were trying to help on Kevin a lot. We know they're going to pound the boards, stuff the middle. They made the plays, and when you give up that many offensive rebounds (18), it's going to hurt you." Webber registered 30 points, eight rebounds, six assists and five steals. Stojakovic scored 27 points and Keon Clark added 18 for Sacramento, which was coming off a 36-point road victory over Eastern Conference-leading New Jersey on Thursday. Minnesota jumped to a 26-19 edge after 12 minutes and took a 46-34 advantage into halftime after leading by as many as 14 points late in the second quarter. Sacramento quickly reduced its deficit in the third quarter and took its first lead, 62-61, on a 3-pointer by Stojakovic with 4:40 remaining. The Timberwolves took a 77-73 lead into the fourth quarter. "We came out a little stagnant, without a lot of energy in the first half," Bibby said. "I think if we could've come out like we did in the second half in the first, things would've been better for us." "Obviously, playing back-to-back games is really hard, but we showed some character," Divac said. "We came back in the second half and played the game we were supposed to play. We had a chance. That's what you like to have every night on the road."
