MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 30 (UPI) -- Alexey Shved scored the first two baskets in an 11-point, fourth-quarter run Friday that lifted Minnesota to a 95-85 win over Milwaukee.
The loss by the Bucks left none of the five teams in the NBA's Central Division with a winning record.
The Timberwolves had a 70-69 lead with 9:51 to play and then held the Bucks scoreless for 5 minutes while building the advantage to 81-69. Shved hit a jumper and a 3-pointer to start the run.
Shved and Luke Ridnour both scored 16 points while J.J. Barea and Kevin Love had 15 for Minnesota. Love added 14 rebounds.
