Kevin Garnett had 22 points, 11 rebounds and 8 assists to lead Minnesota at home.

Garnett, who was facing former teammate Sam Cassell for the second time in three nights, made up for Saturday's loss. He had missed a jump shot in the lane in the closing seconds of overtime during a 100-99 defeat in Los Angeles.

Elton Brand had 26 points for the Clippers, who became the last Western Conference team to lose after a 3-0 start that was their best since 1985.
