Game Story

MINNEAPOLIS (Ticker) -- Clearly, Kevin Garnett is not ready to go home. Garnett recorded his first triple-double of the year and 15th career in the regular season as the Minnesota Timberwolves staved off elimination from playoff contention with a 116-100 victory over the upstart Golden State Warriors. Despite the win, the Timberwolves (41-37) could still miss the playoffs for the first time since 1996 - Garnett's rookie season - if they lose one more game or Memphis (44-34) wins once more. "We dug ourselves this hole and we have nobody to blame but ourselves," Garnett said. "We just need to look forward and control what we can control." Garnett had a huge effort in keeping his club's playoff hopes alive. Notching his first triple-double since last April 21 in the Timberwolves' opening-round series against the Denver Nuggets, the reigning NBA MVP scored 21 points, grabbed 15 rebounds and handed out 11 assists. Going from the top seed in the Western Conference last season to the brink of missing the playoffs, the Timberwolves hit one of their lowest points of the season Saturday in a 105-98 loss to the league-worst Hawks. "(Minnesota coach) Kevin McHale was mad in Atlanta because he thought we were selfish," Garnett said. "Tonight I wasn't going to let that happen again. When I had room to be aggressive, I was aggressive. Other than that, I was just trying to move the ball and be an example." "Tonight our defensive rotation was very solid," said Kevin McHale, who improved to 16-11 as Minnesota's coach. "Trenton Hassell did a nice job against Baron Davis and that set the tone." Averaging 28.6 points in his previous five games, Davis was held in check by Hassell, scoring just 10 points on 3-of-16 shooting and committing five turnovers. "The Timberwolves did a good job of sticking to their game plan," Davis said. "Hassell is a tough player to match up against." Despite leading 86-77 entering the fourth quarter, Minnesota's advantage was trimmed to 90-86 with 7:59 to play on a layup by rookie Andris Biedrins. The Timberwolves responded with a 10-2 run, with Garnett and Eddie Griffin scoring three points each. Latrell Sprewell scored 27 points, Wally Szczerbiak added 15 and Sam Cassell chipped in 14 for Minnesota, which had six players reach double figures. "Golden State allows you to get into a flow," Szczerbiak said. "We were able to move the ball up and down the floor and get some easy buckets in transition." Minnesota shot 57 percent (50-of-88) and scored 15 points on the fast break. Mickael Pietrus scored 19 points and Troy Murphy had 17 for the Warriors, who have lost three straight after winning eight in a row. "We are not very good defensively," Warriors first-year coach Mike Montgomery said. "It's a product of us needing more concentration. In order for us to have won tonight, we would have had to play perfectly."
