Leuer Helps Bucks Hold Off Timberwolves 98-95

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Rookie Jon Leuer converted a three-point play with 1:17 left, helping the Milwaukee Bucks hold off the Minnesota Timberwolves for a 98-95 victory in their home opener Tuesday night.

Brandon Jennings scored 24 points and Stephen Jackson added 16 for the Bucks, who were playing without forward Drew Gooden because of a suspension and several other key players because of injuries.

Kevin Love had 31 points and 20 rebounds for the Timberwolves, whose late rally came up just short.

Minnesota was without coach Rick Adelman, who was attending funeral services for his mother-in-law. Assistant Terry Porter, a former head coach in Milwaukee, filled in for Adelman.

    Not bad for no main coach on site.

    Oh I am so happy that the NBA settled the lockout/strike. Now I can see my least favorite team of all time lose over 75% of their games again. What a waste of time this team is.

      You must care. You bothered to comment on a wolves column.
