Kevin Garnett led the Timberwolves with 27 points and 12 rebounds. Rashad McCants and Marcus Banks scored 18 apiece as Minnesota lost for the 10th time in 13 games. Allen was injured when he rotated to guard a driving Rashad McCants 20 seconds into the second quarter. As he fell backward, Allen's head banged into teammate Darius Songaila's knee. Allen remained on the floor for several minutes, and his neck was immobilized before he was carted away. As he left the court, Allen moved his arms and raised a fist. He was taken to Rush University Medical Center.
