Bucks-Timberwolves: Milwaukee Loses to Minnesota...Sigh

Bleacher Report Senior Analyst IJanuary 11, 2009

Similar to the Sixers game earlier in the week, the Bucks found a way to blow a game they should have—and basically already had—won.

Down by 13 points in the later stages of the game, Randy Foye and the Timberwolves found a way to come back and beat the Bucks 106-104.

It was a discouraging game for the players, as well as the many fans who have started caring about the Bucks for the first time in a long time.

Hopefully this game will go down as a blip instead of the norm, because the Bucks have been playing really well as of late. Even though the T'Wolves are playing well and are on a five-game win streak, it really isn't good losing to a team that is at the bottom of the barrel in the great league known as the NBA.

Mikey Redd led the Bucks with 32 points, but could have had a couple more if he wouldn't have missed at chance to tie the game in the final seconds.

Likewise, Luke Ridnour missed a couple of shots at the end that should have been made.

I didn't watch the game because I was here, and my co-author Bear couldn't write a better recap for you because he was this. So here's the Box Score for your enjoyment. Player of the Game honors go to Richard Jefferson, just because.
