Game Story

MINNEAPOLIS (Ticker) -- Terrell Brandon played his first game against his former team and found that his old point guard position appears to be in good hands with Haywoode Workman.

The major beneficiary of the huge deal that sent Brandon to Minnesota, Workman had 19 points and eight assists to lead the Milwaukee Bucks to a 94-85 victory over the Timberwolves.

"Haywoode Workman was fantastic, both on offense as well as defense," Bucks coach George Karl said.

Brandon, who on March 11 was shipped from Milwaukee to Minnesota in a three-way deal that also involved New Jersey, scored 13 points but failed to spark the Timberwolves, who missed their last 15 shots.

"This was just another game," Brandon said. "I was only there for 1 1/2 years. If we had been playing Cleveland, it would have been something special."

Brandon played six years in Cleveland before he was traded to Milwaukee in September 1997.

"Terrell and I are good friends," Workman said. "It just feels great to get out there and get the win. The coach just puts me out there and lets me run the show."

The Bucks acquired guard Sam Cassell from the Nets in the deal, but Cassell has been sidelined with a severely sprained ankle, playing just one game since arriving in Milwaukee. Workman was waived by Indiana earlier in the season and signed by Milwaukee and he continues to show he is rehabilitated from a torn ACL that forced him to miss all but four games the last two seasons.

Today, Workman played 31 minutes and was 4-of-8 from the field, including a 3-pointer, and 10-of-12 from the free throw line. He also had seven rebounds, two steals and committed just one turnover.

Bobby Jackson's running banker in the lane with 6:49 left in the fourth quarter gave the Timberwolves an 80-79 lead. It turned out to be their last field goal.

Milwaukee's Dell Curry, who finished with 15 points, hit a 19-footer and 3-pointer to start a decisive 12-3 run. Workman capped the spurt with a 21-foot jumper with 1:23 left, giving the Bucks a 91-83 lead. Workman converted three free throws in the final 42 seconds to seal the win.

"Down the stretch, you want to come down and make the plays and make the free throws," Workman said. "I'm generally not the one in those situations. When I'm in that situation, I have confidence to make those plays."

The Timberwolves made just 4-of-24 shots in the fourth quarter.

"We went totally cold," said Timberwolves coach Flip Saunders. "When you shoot 4-for-24 in the fourth quarter, you're not going to beat too many teams. We had some good looks, but we didn't shoot the ball well."

Minnesota's Kevin Garnett nearly recorded his second career triple-double with 16 points, 18 rebounds and nine assists. Sam Mitchell led the Timberwolves with 20 points.

Minnesota again played without starting forward Joe Smith, who missed his second straight game with a rib injury.

Glenn Robinson scored 18 points and Ray Allen added 14 for the Bucks (16-12), who improved to 8-6 on the road.

Dennis Scott, who signed with the Timberwolves 11 days ago after being released by New York, played 39 minutes and scored 15 points, but had just one basket in the second half.

Milwaukee held its biggest lead of the half, 25-18, after a short jumper by Curry early in the second quarter. But Garnett hit two jumpers and a hook shot to highlight an 11-2 run for Minnesota.

The Timberwolves increased their lead to 42-36 after a driving layup by Brandon with 3:15 left in the second quarter. The Bucks closed the half with a 12-5 run and took the lead, 48-47, when Workman hit a 3-pointer with 17 seconds left.

Minnesota held its biggest lead of the second half, 65-60, after a three-point play by Mitchell with 4:49 left. Milwaukee scored the next six points on a dunk by Robert Traylor, a pair of free throws by Workman and a 19-foot jumper by Vinny Del Negro with 3:23 left in the quarter.
