Game Story

MINNEAPOLIS (Ticker) -- In a battle of the Western Conference's All-Star forwards, Kevin Garnett clearly got the better of Tim Duncan. Garnett totaled a season high-tying 34 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists as the Minnesota Timberwolves extended their best winning streak of the season to six games with a 106-95 triumph over the San Antonio Spurs. "We had a lot of energy tonight," Garnett said. "And I think the winning streak helped get us energized coming into the game." Duncan, who was named the Western Conference Player of the Week earlier Monday, had 17 points and 10 rebounds but shot just 5-of-17 and allowed Garnett to connect on 14-of-19 attempts. "KG was fabulous tonight," Minnesota coach Flip Saunders said. "He got in a situation where he thought he couldn't miss." "(Garnett) had a great game tonight," Duncan said. "He shot the ball incredibly. He was hitting his fadeaway. He led them. He's great." Wally Szczerbiak scored 17 points and Kendall Gill added 12 for the Timberwolves, who led by as many as 20 points midway through the fourth quarter before the Spurs made a late run. The game was tied, 51-51, before Joe Smith nailed a jumper eight seconds into the second half that gave Minnesota the lead for good. The Timberwolves extended their advantage to 76-68 entering the fourth quarter before opening the period with nine straight points. They were never seriously threatened thereafter. Garnett scored 14 points in the third quarter. "KG always gets amped up to play against Tim Duncan," Smith said. "They're two great players who go out and give it their all every time they go out on the court, but tonight KG played like he was possessed." Tony Parker scored 19 points, Stephen Jackson added 15 and Malik Rose chipped in 13 and 11 rebounds for the Spurs, who opened a stretch of nine straight road contests - six before the All-Star break and three after it. The Spurs shot just 44 percent (34-of-77) and allowed the Timberwolves to make 52 percent (47-of-91) of their attempts. "I thought the Timberwolves played really well," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "They did a great job. They stifled us in every way. This was a great game for a while, but it got away from us." San Antonio committed 21 turnovers, which Minnesota converted into 24 points. The Spurs scored just 12 points off 11 giveaways. "It's hard to win when you don't take care of the ball," Parker said. "We're going to do a better job next time." "Our defense has gotten better," Saunders said. "We've contested a lot more shots, we're playing pretty hard and getting after it. That's carried over to some things we do offensively."
