Minnesota Timberwolves 101

Milwaukee Bucks 116

The Milwaukee Bucks opened up a big lead with a 36-point fourth quarter on their way to a 116-101 victory over the Timberwolves Friday night in Milwaukee.

1. Locked on from long range

Khris Middleton could seemingly do no wrong. He knocked down the first eight three-pointers he attempted and finished the night 8-of-9 from behind the arc.

By the time it was done, Middleton finished with 32 points to lead the Bucks.

As a team, the Bucks were 14-of-24 from the three-point line.

2. Too many turnovers

If the Wolves are trying to figure out how they lost to Milwaukee for the fourth straight time, they need look no further than the turnover column.

Minnesota turned it over 26 times in the loss. Zach LaVine (6), Ricky Rubio (5), and Karl-Anthony Towns (4) combined for 15 of them.

3. Starters ineffective

Andrew Wiggins scored just 10 points in only 21 minutes on the floor. Rubio saw just 23 minutes of court time and Towns played just 22 minutes.

Towns led the Wolves with 21 points and seven boards but Minnesota was outscored by 20 points while he was on the floor.

Tweet of the Night:

Maybe they could trade Jonny Flynn for Steph Curry too?

Up Next:

The Wolves (19-43) return to the Target Center to host the Nets on Saturday night.
