Game Story

SALT LAKE CITY (Ticker) -- Andrei Kirilenko and the Utah Jazz were not about to blow another big second-half lead to the Minnesota Timberwolves. Kirilenko scored all 20 of his points in the second half as the Jazz posted a 100-82 victory over the struggling Timberwolves. In the team's first matchup of the season, Minnesota trailed by 16 points before rallying for a 93-91 triumph at the Target Center on January 28. The Jazz were able to open another big lead in this one, thanks to an 18-1 run midway through the third quarter. Kirilenko contributed seven points, two rebounds, a steal and a block in the spurt, which was capped by his dunk that put Utah ahead, 61-48, with 4:27 left. Kirilenko was held scoreless with just three rebounds in the first half, due in part to the Jazz's paltry second quarter, in which they scored just 10 points on 17 percent shooting (4-of-24). "In the first half, I was a little limited getting the ball," Kirilenko said. "I think I got the ball like five times. But I had a little chat with (point guard Raul Lopez) at halftime, and he said, 'OK, I'll keep you busy.' The second half was a different story. I got the ball every three possessions." The Wolves threatened to rally again, scoring the first six points of the final period to cut the deficit to 71-66 with just under 11 minutes remaining. But Kirilenko scored nine points in a 16-5 burst over the next six minutes that pushed the lead to 16 points and all but sealed the victory. Kirilenko also grabbed 10 rebounds and combined with frontcourt mates Carlos Boozer and Mehmet Okur to dominate Minnesota on the boards. Boozer had 21 points and 11 rebounds and Okur collected 14 and 12 as the Jazz held a 47-32 rebounding advantage and a 12-0 edge in second-chance points. "We won the boards," Kirilenko said. "Carlos Boozer and Mehmet just destroyed the boards. This is definitely our best game in a couple of months." "They posted their bigs under the boards and we didn't respond," Minnesota coach Flip Saunders said. "With zero second-chance points, you're not going to beat anybody." It was a particularly important performance for Boozer, who scored in double figures for just the second time in six games. Despite being in the first year of a six-year, $68 million deal, Boozer has become the subject of trade rumors and was publicly criticized by Jazz owner Larry Miller earlier in the week. "He's going through some tough times," Utah coach Jerry Sloan said. "But in the last two or three weeks I don't think I've had a player work as hard as he has. He ran a lot better than in some other games, and opportunities were there because he ran harder." "I just wanted to go out and get back on track," Boozer said. "I've been in a little bit of a tough spell these last few games, and I just wanted to pick it back up and try to get back to the level of play where I usually am." Latrell Sprewell scored 16 points and Troy Hudson added 15 for Minnesota, which has lost seven of its last eight games since defeating Utah. Timberwolves superstar Kevin Garnett was held to just 12 points on 4-of-9 shooting, leaving him two shy of 15,000 for his career. "I couldn't get into a rhythm," Garnett said. "No pass was coming back from the point guard, so I was trying to find the open guy and get some ball movement. "Offensively, we were OK, but in the second half they started to get dunks and second-chance points. You can't win like that on the road."
