The Milwaukee Bucks lost to Kevin Love and the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday night, but Larry Sanders dazzled the crowd with an electric triple-double (10 points, 12 rebounds, 10 blocks) in the process. Sanders disrupted shots and swatted floaters all night long, and he and helped limit Minnesota to just 26 points in the paint on the night. Despite scoring just two points in the first half, the lanky big man made a late push and scored six points in the final 2:34 of the game to complete his masterpiece before the buzzer capped the disappointing loss for Milwaukee.
Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis each scored 18 points, but they combined to shoot just 14-for-41 from the field, including a rough 5-for-21 performance in the second half. Beno Udrih wasn't around to bail them out this time, because he left the game with 7:54 remaining after he rolled awkwardly on his right ankle and had to be helped off the court during an injury timeout. X-rays at the arena were negative, but Beno will be evaluated further on Saturday.
We've embedded our video recap into this post, so take a look and tell us how much you love it. You have to look at my face for the first five minutes of the video, because I'm still learning how to use this feature, but Frank appears shortly after that point. We also say smart things...I think.
