The Timberwolves won back-to-back games for the first time since December with their 107-98 win in Milwaukee. Nikola Pekovic scored 27 points to lead the way for Minnesota but the story was the play of Ricky Rubio.
Rubio shot a perfect 5-for-5 from three-point range in the first half in scoring 19 points in the game and dishing 12 assists in the win. Rick Adelman picked up his 999th career win with the victory and has a chance to pick up career win 1,000 on Friday night against Toronto.
The Wolves have won 5 of their last 8 games and forced nine Bucks turnovers in the fourth quarter en route to the victory.
The Wolves return home for back-to-back games Friday and Saturday against Toronto and Detroit.
