Kevin Garnett hit a jumper with 8.3 seconds left and finished one assist shy of a triple double, leading the Minnesota Timberwolves to a 96-91 win over the Houston Rockets.

Garnett had 20 points, 17 rebounds and nine assists, and Eddie Griffin made a key three-pointer down the stretch against the team with which he began his career, sending the Timberwolves past a Rockets team missing leading scorer Tracy McGrady.

McGrady missed his first game of the season with nagging hip and groin strains.

Yao Ming scored 19 of his 25 points in the second half and Maurice Taylor added 19.
