Game Story

MINNEAPOLIS (Ticker) -- Kevin Garnett fell an assist shy of a triple-double and Troy Hudson had 18 points and a career-high 15 assists as the Minnesota Timberwolves won their sixth straight game in impressive fashion, 118-95 over the Cleveland Cavaliers. Garnett finished with 20 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists for his NBA-leading 49th double-double and Wally Szczerbiak scored 17 of his 25 points in the Timberwolves' best first half of the season. Six players scored in double figures as Minnesota shot 57 percent (51-of-89) from the field and committed only four turnovers. The Wolves held a 67-50 halftime advantage en route to their 16th consecutive home win. "I let guys know in January that we had to get off to a good start after the All-Star break," Garnett said. "Before they left and went wherever, I told them we had to be focused and keep moving forward." Garnett's teammates took his words to heart. The Wolves just finished their best month in team history at 12-1. "Too bad it's only 28 days," quipped Minnesota coach Flip Saunders. Hudson hit both his 3-pointers in a 14-2 second-quarter run. With the Wolves leading, 49-45, Hudson drained a 3-pointer to jump-start the spurt. He also capped the burst from long range, giving Minnesota a 63-47 bulge with 3:02 left in the half. "Over the last month, he (Hudson) is averaging almost 10 assists a game," Saunders said. "His turnover ratio is extremely high, 15-1 tonight. He's becoming very much a multi-dimensional player for us." "This is KG's team, I'm just doing the little things to hopefully get the team some wins," said Hudson, who is averaging 10 assists over his past five games, nearly double his season average. "He's our superstar." Darius Miles and Dajuan Wagner each scored 16 points and Carlos Boozer added 14 and eight boards for the Cavaliers, who lost for the seventh time in their past eight games. "Without looking at film, I'd say we were not guarding our people, we were not contesting shots, we didn't take wide-open looks and we rushed the ball," Cavs coach Keith Smart said. "It's a bad taste, but now we've got to get ready for the next one." The Wolves shot 70 percent and led by as many as eight points in the first quarter. By halftime, Minnesota already had four scorers in double figures and had registered 21 of its 40 assists. Rasho Nesterovic scored 18 points, Gary Trent collected 15 and Anthony Peeler 10 for the Wolves, whose only loss of the month was a February 17 setback at Utah. Minnesota set season highs in points, field goal percentage and field goals made, a season low with 13 fouls, and matched a franchise low in turnovers. The lead grew as high as 25 points while not dipping below 15 in the final 24 minutes. Jumaine Jones netted 14 points, Zydrunas Ilgauskas 13 and Ricky Davis 11 as Cleveland shot 47 percent (39-of-83) and held a 46-35 rebounding advantage. "You've got to stop somebody to win games," Davis said.
