Basketball May 9, 2004 MINNEAPOLIS Sam Cassell was clutch once again, and the Minnesota Timberwolves salvaged a split at home to start their Western Conference semifinal series. Cassell scored eight points in the final three minutes, Kevin Garnett had 28 points and 11 rebounds and the Timberwolves closed the game with a 16-1 run to beat the Sacramento Kings 94-89 on Saturday night. ADVERTISEMENT Game 3 is Monday at raucous Arco Arena, where Minnesota was the only visitor this season to win twice. The Kings, though, have won eight of their last nine playoff games at home and are 138-26 there during the last four regular seasons. Peja Stojakovic had 26 points and seven rebounds for Sacramento, which wasted a late 10-point lead.

Cassell, who had been quiet most of the game after scoring 40 points in a Game 1 loss, was squarely behind the rally. His jumper in the lane with 2:08 left pulled the Wolves to 88-87. Garnett, fouled by Brad Miller on a loose-ball scramble that knocked over referee Sean Corbin, made two free throws to give Minnesota the lead with 1:45 remaining.
Extractions: Red Sox Patriots Celtics Bruins ... Basketball By Dave Campbell, Associated Press, 2/8/2004 MINNEAPOLIS Phil Saunders is the only coach in NBA history to lose seven consecutive first-round playoff series. ADVERTISEMENT Not a flattering fact, but there's always a Flip side to consider. At midseason, Saunders has guided the Minnesota Timberwolves to first place in the Midwest Division with one of the league's top three records. "Everyone talks about the first round," Saunders said. "We've got 10 new guys. They don't worry about that. Our goal is to win a championship." The man known by his nickname, Flip, will coach the Western Conference squad next weekend in the All-Star Game, and his staff will accompany him to Los Angeles for the showcase event. "I'm real joyous for those guys," said Kevin Garnett, who has shared all of his victories and defeats with Saunders. "Flip's done a really good job," said Timberwolves vice president Kevin McHale, who hired Saunders in 1995. "I think sometimes the biggest challenge is trying to find enough players to fit out there." Sam Cassell and Latrell Sprewell were acquired in summer trades, and several useful role players (Mark Madsen, Fred Hoiberg, Ervin Johnson, Trenton Hassell, and Oliver Miller) were added in recent months.

Extractions: Garnett gets through to 'other side' The Associated Press MINNEAPOLIS - For seven years, the first round of the NBA playoffs was a roadblock for Kevin Garnett and the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Wolves finally smashed through that barrier, beating the Denver Nuggets in Game 5 on Friday to clinch their opening round series. "I'm probably more excited to move on and see what's on the other side," Garnett said. He'll find the Sacramento Kings. Game 1 of the best-of-seven series is Tuesday night in Minneapolis. "Back to the drawing board," Garnett said. After Minnesota became the first team in NBA history to lose seven consecutive first-round series, the Wolves' front office overhauled the roster to surround Garnett with players with plenty of postseason experience and not just of the first-round variety. Latrell Sprewell and point guard Sam Cassell - both NBA Finals veterans - were the biggest acquisitions. Garnett, Sprewell and Cassell were the highest-scoring trio in the NBA this year, accounting for 64 percent of Minnesota's points.
