MILWAUKEE (AP) — Kevin Love had 33 points and 15 rebounds for his sixth straight double-double, and the Minnesota Timberwolves climbed back to .500 by routing the Milwaukee Bucks 117-95 on Saturday night.
Nikola Pekovic added 19 points and 11 rebounds, and Love hit four of Minnesota’s 11 3-pointers. Perimeter defense was once again a huge problem for the Bucks, who have allowed opponents to hit at least 10 3s in seven consecutive games.
Khris Middleton scored 23 points for Milwaukee on 10-of-20 shooting. Larry Sanders had nine points and 10 rebounds in 33 minutes in his first start since missing seven weeks following right thumb surgery.
The Bucks fell to an NBA-worst 6-24, while Minnesota evened its record at 15-15.
