Nuggets lose sixth straight to Wolves

MINNEAPOLIS (Ticker) -- Kevin Garnett and his teammates never gave the Denver Nuggets a chance to snap their five-game losing streak to the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Garnett collected 26 points, 11 rebounds, eight assists and five blocks as the Timberwolves cruised to a 89-76 triumph over the Nuggets.

Gary Trent added 14 points and Fred Hoiberg 12 for Minnesota, which led by as many as 24 points late in the third quarter and snapped a three-game home losing streak overall.

Minnesota, which led 42-28 at the half, took a 68-46 advantage into the fourth quarter before Denver made a late charge. The Nuggets shot just 23 percent (14-of-61) through three quarters and 32 percent overall (27-of-89).

Nikoloz Tskitishvili had 14 points to pace Denver, which was trying to record its first three-game winning streak since last November 22-26. Star rookie Carmelo Anthony added 10 points and nine rebounds but shot just 3-of-12 and sat out the fourth quarter with the game out of hand.
