Game Story

MINNEAPOLIS (Ticker) -- With their playoff hopes hanging on every game, the Minnesota Timberwolves can rely on Kevin Garnett to take a leadership role. Garnett scored 24 points to lead six players in double figures and grabbed 13 rebounds as the Timberwolves posted a 107-102 victory over the New Orleans Hornets. Minnesota (35-34) beat New Orleans for the sixth straight time and moved within 2 1/2 games of Denver for the final Western Conference playoff spot. It has not missed the playoffs since 1996. The league's top rebounder, Garnett followed up a pair of 30-point performances to record his league-leading 60th double-double. Troy Hudson, who managed just eight points in the first two meetings against New Orleans, scored Minnesota's first 10 points in a 22-7 game-opening run. "That's what (coach) Kevin McHale wants us to do is come out and get good starts," Hudson said. "I came out with a lot of rhythm and bounce." "Hudson hit his first five shots and they weren't open jump shots," Hornets guard Dan Dickau said. "That's the crazy thing. Instead of having a lapse be seven or eight minutes, have a two-minute lapse and maybe it would have been easier to overcome tonight." Despite allowing Minnesota to shoot 63 percent (24-of-38) from the floor in the first half, New Orleans crept back and cut the deficit to 80-74 when Bostjan Nachbar made a pair of 3-pointers in a 9-2 run that closed the third quarter. "It's tough to play up 20 points because the other team, especially those guys, they're going to continue to play hard," Hudson said. "They're young and they keep coming at you." "When we put a team like this down by 20, we're supposed to take care of business and blow them out by 40," Timberwolves guard Wally Szczerbiak said. "For some reason, we just haven't been capable of doing that this year." But the Hornets could not complete the comeback. Sam Cassell made three baskets midway through the fourth quarter and Garnett helped seal the win by taking a feed from Fred Hoiberg and making a layup for a 99-91 advantage with 2:56 left. "That's how it goes sometimes," Garnett said. "It's a league of runs and we were fortunate to get some stops in the fourth quarter to seal it out." Hudson scored 18 points, Cassell added 14 and Hoiberg and Eddie Griffin 12 each for Minnesota, which lost the each of the the final three quarters and was outscored, 86-74. "No teams are easy teams," Garnett said. "New Orleans is one of the teams who comes out and fights for 48 minutes. We knew it was going to be a fight." Jamaal Magliore scored 20 points to lead seven Hornets in double figures and grabbed 17 rebounds. Rookie J.R. Smith also scored 20 points and Dan Dickau added 17 for New Orleans, which fell to 4-30 on the road and has dropped seven of nine overall. "You try to warn these guys that (Minnesota) is a team that is desperate for another win," Hornets coach Byron Scott said. "They're fighting for their lives for a playoff spot. We tried to let our guys know you've got to be ready and prepared for them. Then, boom! They jump on us and they've got a 17-point lead."
