Wednesday, Nov. 26: Milwaukee Bucks at Minnesota Timberwolves

Wednesday night brought more of the same, Milwaukee playing a solid game against a team with a porous record.

Milwaukee went into Minneapolis and defeated the T’wolves 103-86.

Minnesota kept it close for three quarters, starting the fourth only down 72-70.  But then Milwaukee blew it open in the fourth, outscoring the T’wolves 31-16.

Milwaukee had a very balanced game, getting production from everyone who stepped on the court.  The Bucks ended the night with seven players scoring double digit points.

Milwaukee played more solid defense against a weak T’wolves team, holding them to 38.3 percent shooting from the field and a mere 3-for-14 from the three-point line.

More importantly, while Minnesota really has no skilled big men, Milwaukee dominated the paint.

They held center Gorgui Dieng to a mere four points and eight boards.  First overall pick Andrew Wiggins even matched Dieng’s rebound total Wednesday night.

Milwaukee stayed the course Wednesday night, seeming to beat teams they’re supposed to, and losing teams they’re supposed to.

Friday night was no different, when they traveled to Detroit for the last time this young season to play the Pistons.

The win put Milwaukee at 9-7.
