    MOLINE, Ill. (AP) -- Rookie Shawne Williams had a pair of baskets and a blocked shot down the stretch Saturday night as the Indiana Pacers rallied to beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 98-91 in a preseason game.

    Stephen Jackson scored 20 points and Danny Granger added 18 for the Pacers.

    With the game tied at 88, Williams scored twice to put the Pacers ahead to stay. Indiana overcame a late six-point deficit and held the Timberwolves to one basket in the final five minutes.

    Williams finished with 11 points. James White and Al Harrington each added 10 for the Pacers. Center Jermaine O'Neal sat out for the second time this week with a sore left hamstring.

    Kevin Garnett led the Timberwolves with 17 points and Ricky Davis, who played collegiately at Iowa, added 13, including a crowd-pleasing dunk on an alley-oop in the first quarter. Garnett was 6-for-9 from the field.

    The Timberwolves trailed by 11 points early in the third quarter, but went on a 20-3 run to take a 72-71 lead before relinquishing it late in the fourth.
