MINNEAPOLIS - The first few times Dwight Howard faced Kevin Garnett, he was a wide-eyed kid awed by being on the same floor as his idol.
He's all grown up now.
Howard went toe-to-toe with Garnett, scoring 21 and grabbing 22 rebounds to lead the Orlando Magic to a 109-98 victory over the Timberwolves on Saturday night.
"When I first played against him, I was like, 'Whoa, that's KG.' I was just happy to play against him," said Howard, who has at least 20 rebounds in a game six times in his career.
"After my first two years, I was like, 'I know I have to play KG. I know all the things he's going to do.' I just really tried to get after him and go back at him every time they scored."
Jameer Nelson added 23 points and Darko Milicic a season-high 15 for Orlando, which led by as many as 20. Minnesota couldn't keep up with the young, athletic Magic on the defensive end and lost its fourth in a row.
