Milwaukee Bucks logoBrandon Knight missed 7 of 8 field goal attempts in the first three-quarters, but he made up for it by making 8 straight free throws in the fourth quarter to help the Milwaukee Bucks pull away for a 103-86 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves at the Target Center on Wednesday night.

Knight and teammate Larry Sanders each had 15 points to lead seven Bucks in double figures.  Sanders also pulled down seven rebounds and blocked a season high five shots.

Milwaukee (9-7) won for the fifth time in its last seven games as it took advantage of a Timberwolves team that played without its top two point guards, as well as big man Nikola Pekovic.

The two teams made NBA history with four teenagers played in a league game for the first time.  19-year-olds Jabari Parker and Giannis Antetokounmpo for the Bucks and 19-year-olds Andrew Wiggins and Zach LaVine for the Timberwolves.

The game was back and forth in the first three-quarters, but the Bucks outscored the Timberwolves 31-16 in the fourth quarter to pull out their second straight victory.
