Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- Once Latrell Sprewell cooled off, the Milwaukee Bucks were able to end a long slide at the hands of the Minnesota Timberwolves. Michael Redd scored 11 of his 19 points in the third quarter to lead the Bucks to a 91-86 victory over the Timberwolves. Redd's efforts and a strong defensive showing in the second half helped Milwaukee snap a 10-game losing streak to Minnesota. The Bucks also had lost eight in row in the series at home, dating to February 8, 1995. "Very huge," Redd said. "We didn't let it get to us psychologically in the fourth quarter. We continued to keep playing, staying aggressive." Sprewell made 4-of-5 3-pointers in the first quarter and scored 19 points, helping the Timberwolves take a 29-21 lead. But he did not score again until midway through the fourth period, after Redd had led his team back. The All-Star guard had back-to-back dunks in the closing minutes of the third period to give Milwaukee a 69-67 lead, its first lead since early in the opening quarter. At that point, Minnesota was in the early stages of a scoring drought that lasted for nearly eight minutes. Redd scored five of the Bucks' 13 straight points during that span. The dry spell allowed the Bucks to extend their lead to 79-69 midway through the fourth quarter on a 3-pointer by Keith Van Horn. The Timberwolves managed to cut the deficit to two points on multiple occasions but never got the stop they needed down the stretch. Former Timberwolf Joe Smith scored 17 points and grabbed 12 rebounds for Milwaukee, which had squandered a fourth-quarter lead in its last two losses. "Mentally, this was huge to get over that block," Redd said. "We were determined not to lose." Smith controlled the middle and helped the Bucks earn a 28-8 advantage on points in the paint. "I think it was our effort on the boards," Smith said. "We got a lot of second and third opportunities for our team. We just tried to do whatever we could to control the paint on both ends of the floor and I think that's what got us the win tonight." "All the games we've lost have been tight games, where a play or two here or there made the difference," said Bucks forward Toni Kukoc, who had season highs with nine points, six rebounds and five assists in his first start this season. "Tonight, we were the ones that made those plays." Kukoc started in place of Desmond Mason, who was out with the flu. Van Horn, who missed his last game with tendinitis in his right ankle, returned to provide five points and eight rebounds off the bench. "(The bench) played solid," Bucks coach Terry Porter said. "I just thought with all the circumstances, (Mason) being down and everything, our guys just came out and gave a great effort." Sprewell scored 24 points but shot just 1-of-9 after the first 12 minutes. Wally Szczerbiak chipped in 19 points off the bench but Minnesota scored just 30 after halftime. "'Groundhog Day.' How many guys have seen the movie?" Timberwolves coach Flip Saunders said. "You can go back and look; every time we lose, it's the same thing. We get beat in the paint, we shoot a lot of 3-pointers and we don't get to the free-throw line. Those are the three glares that happen almost every time in all of our defeats. "They destroyed us on the glass tonight in the second half (31-20 ). We just didn't respond."
