Bucks lose Sunday opener to Timberwolves
The Milwaukee Bucks lost their exhibition opener Sunday, 117-103 to the Timberwolves in Mankato, Minn.
The Bucks went down by 12 at the half, and they never got close to catching up the rest of the way.
Forward Hakim Warrick led the Bucks with 24 points off the bench.
First-round draft choice Brandon Jennings had 14 points and five assists at the point guard spot.
Kevin Love had 17 points and 13 rebounds for the Timberwolves, and Al Jefferson added 14 points while playing just 16 minutes in the first half.
Coach Scott Skiles said the Bucks had a lot of "lazy fouling" and poor defense. The Bucks will play their second exhibition game on Wednesday at Detroit.
