Milwaukee, Wis. (WHBL-Learfield) - The Milwaukee Bucks emerged from the All-Star break with a 94-to-88 home victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves last night. Both teams shot just 38-percent. The Bucks had a seven-point lead cut to one with two minutes to go. But Brandon Jennings sealed the victory by making five free throws in the final minute-and-17-seconds. Jennings made 11-of-12 from the charity stripe for the game, and he led Milwaukee with 27 points. Corey Maggette scored 20, as the Bucks won for only the third time in their last 11 games. Michael Beasley led the Timberwolves with 21 points, after missing five games with a sprained left ankle. Kevin Love had 20 points and 17 rebounds, as Minnesota lost for the fifth straight time. Former Buck Luke Ridnour scored 12 for the T-Wolves, who’ve now lost six-of-their-last seven annual contests at the Bradley Center. The Bucks remain three-and-a-half games behind Indiana for the eighth-and-final playoff spot in the N-B-A’s Eastern Conference. Tonight, the Bucks will play the Knicks in New York. Carmelo Anthony is expected to make his New York debut after being traded yesterday from Denver. He and the Nuggets had defeated the Bucks just last Wednesday.
