CHICAGO - The Milwaukee Bucks continued their surprising start to this new season by collecting another road win on Wednesday night.
Point guard Brandon Knight and center Larry Sanders each had 15 points while Giannis "The Greek Freak" Antetokounmpo drilled 15 to lead a balanced Bucks offensive that overwhelmed the Minnesota Timberwolves at the Target Center.
Three other Bucks players registered double figures in points --- Jabaru Parker and Khris Middelton with 11 apiece and OJ Mayo with 10 --- and Milwaukee raised its record to 9-7 including an impressive 4-5 on the road.
The Bucks finished last season in the bottom of the overall standings with a 15-67 record including just 5 wins in 41 road games.
Corey Brewer scored the most for Minnesota with 19 and rookie Andrew Wiggins contributed 14 but the Wolves couldn't get anything going as they shot just 38.3 percent overall (31 of 81 from the field).
Minnesota also flopped beyond the 3-point arc, going only 3-for-4 for 21.4 percent. And they missed 13 of 34 free throws.
With their third consecutive defeat, the Timberwolves dropped to 3-10 and 14th place in the Western Conference.
