Timberwolves Vs. Bucks: Minnesota Completes Preseason Sweep Of Milwaukee With 85-84 Win

The Minnesota Timberwolves went nearly six minutes without scoring in the fourth quarter on Wednesday night at the Bradley Center, but they found time to fit in a 12-0 run to the end the game, completing an 85-84 comeback win over the Milwaukee Bucks to put the final touches on a home-and-home preseason series sweep.

Kevin Love and Michael Beasley combined to score Minnesota's final 12 points over the final 2:42 of regulation to pull off a surprising win and gain momentum moving toward the regular season.

Love started and led everyone with 22 points and 16 rebounds in 27 minutes, including scoring 10 of Minnesota's final 12 points.

If the preseason is any sort of predictor for the regular season, three-point shooting might be an area of strength for the Timberwolves. After making 15-24 three-pointers in their 117-96 win over Milwaukee in Minnesota, the Timberwolves hit 6-15 at the Bradley Center on Wednesday.

The Timberwolves open the regular season on Dec. 26 when they host the Oklahoma City Thunder. Then they return to Milwaukee to face off against the Bucks on Dec. 27 before hosting LeBron James and the Miami Heat on Dec. 30.
