Bucks blast the Wolves, Minnesota drops 14th straight


The Minnesota Timberwolves were no match even for the Jabari Parker-less Milwaukee Bucks. The Wolves were beaten 98-84 in Milwaukee Friday night.

The Bucks erupted in the second quarter, hitting on a ridiculous 82 percent of their shots from the field. The Wolves held a three point lead heading into that quarter, but the Bucks outscored them 34-16 in the frame.

It was the 14th straight loss for the Wolves, who were again without Mo Williams.

Andrew Wiggins had a rough night shooting, but finished with 20 points – becoming the first Wolves rookie to score 20 in six consecutive games.

In the end, Wiggins' efforts weren't enough for the Wolves as the Bucks had five players in double figures. Every Bucks player who got off the bench made at least two field goals.

Milwaukee was led by Brandon Knight with 14 points. O.J. Mayo was 4-of-4 from the three-point line for 12 points. John Henson also chipped in 12 for the Bucks.

The Wolves turned it over 20 times and Milwaukee turned that into 28 points.

The Wolves (5-30) return to Target Center on Saturday to face San Antonio.
