=== Minnesota Timberwolves Team Report – November 17 ===

(Sports Network) – Minnesota will be playing the back end of a brutal back-
to-back night stretch this evening, when it takes on Detroit at the Palace of
Auburn Hills.

The Timberwolves registered a 108-97 victory over Shaquille O’Neal and the
Miami Heat on Tuesday night at Target Center. Kevin Garnett posted 25 points,
21 rebounds and eight assists in the winning effort.

Garnett, who has led Minnesota in scoring and rebounding in each of the first
six games, surpassed the 14,000-point career mark.

Wally Szczerbiak scored 21 points and Sam Cassell added 19 for the
Timberwolves, who have captured three of their last four games. Troy Hudson
chipped in 12 points in 16 minutes during the victory.

Minnesota has split its first two road tilts this season.

The T’Wolves swept Detroit last season and has won 11 of the last 13 meetings
overall. Minnesota has taken four of its last six trips to Detroit.
