MINNEAPOLIS – The only thing stopping the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday night  was the ability to get on the court and start the game.

Minutes before the scheduled tip-off against the Minnesota Timberwolves at Target Center, one of the rims was determined to be askew. Fixing the problem delayed the game nearly an hour, with the start coming at 7:59 p.m. for what had been a scheduled 7 p.m. game.

Once the game got going, though, the Bucks controlled the action from tip to buzzer, never trailing and leading by as many as 32 points on the way to a 134-106 victory. The win – which came against a Timberwolves team without star Karl-Anthony Towns – was Milwaukee's third straight and provided a positive start to a four-game Western Conference road trip.
