NBA Daily: Bucks Eke Out Hard-Fought Victory Over Timberwolves 106-104


PhilBoxing.com




Boracay Island, Philippines – Giannis Antetokounmpo posted 32 points and 17 rebounds to go with 4 assists and 2 blocks to carry the Milwaukee Bucks past the Minnesota Timberwolves 106-104 on Wednesday night (Thursday morning, Philippine time) at the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

It was the 30th double-double in 33 games, thus far this season, for the reigning league MVP, who struggled at the freethrow line, missing 5 of his 8 attempts.

Antentokounmpo didn’t lack for support on the offensive end, as each of his teammates that played scored at least 5 points. They also out-rebounded their opponents 60-to-48, as a team.

Shabazz Napier led Minnesota with 22 markers. The Timberwolves were without key players Karl-Anthony Towns (knee), Jeff Teague (knee), Andrew Wiggins (flu-like symptoms), and Treveon Graham (flu-like symptoms).

The Timberwolves, who dropped to a 12-21 win-loss card, will next face the Golden State Warriors at home on Thursday night (Friday morning, Philippine time).

Meanwhile, the league-leading Bucks, who improved to 31 wins and 5 losses, will host the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday night (Sunday morning, Philippine time).

How they scored:

Bucks 106 – Antetokounmpo 32, Middleton 14, B. Lopez 11, Bledsoe 10, Korver 8, Ilyasoba 7, R. Lopez 7, Connaughton 7, DiVincenzo 6, Hill 5

Timberwolves 104 – Napier 22, Dieng 15, Nowell 12, Okogie 12, Reid 11, Culver 10, Bates-Diop 10, Covington 7, Martin 3, Bell 2
