Minnesota Timberwolves Team Report – March 28

=== Minnesota Timberwolves Team Report – March 28 ===

(Sports Network) – Latrell Sprewell scored 18 points and Kevin Garnett added
17 points and 15 rebounds to lead Minnesota to a 98-82 win over the Los
Angeles Clippers on Saturday at the Staples Center.

Sam Cassell notched 15 points for the Timberwolves, who captured their seventh
straight victory in the series and snapped a two-game losing streak in the
process.

With the win, the Timberwolves avoided their first three-game losing streak of
the season. The only other teams that haven’t lost more than two straight are
Indiana and Sacramento.

Minnesota is 7-7 this month after going a combined 34-9 in December, January
and February

Thanks to their recent struggles, the Timberwolves have watched their lead in
the Midwest Division slip to just 1 1/2 games over the defending champion San
Antonio Spurs. Minnesota, though, is just two games back of the Sacramento
Kings for the top overall spot in the Western Conference.

The Timberwolves, who will close their four-game road trip in Houston on
Monday, have won just two of their last six on the road and are 23-14 away
from home this season.
