Milwaukee Bucks vs. Minnesota Timberwolves Game Thread (Nov. 30)

The Milwaukee Bucks hit the road to take on the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday night. Can they make a quick recovery from the thrashing the New York Knicks put on them?

Jonathan Daniel

The Minnesota Timberwolves are just 1-4 since Kevin Love returned to the lineup, but the Milwaukee Bucks might not even have to deal with Love on Friday night at the Target Center. The star forward from UCLA felt ill in the morning and skipped shootaround, and he is a gametime decision for the contest. One Minnesota paper called Love questionable, while the other ruled him out because he missed the early shootaround -- Andrei Kirilenko also missed that event and he is definitively out for the game -- but I decided to ask the Timberwolves myself.

Turns out Love is a game-time decision:

In any case, this is a meeting between the two worst three-point shooting teams in the NBA. The Bucks hit just 30.2 percent of their attempts, while the Timberwolves rank last in the NBA with a 27.7 percent conversion rate. Who's ready for some smash-mouth basketball? Nikola Pekovic should present a big challenge for Samuel Dalembert and the Tube Men, regardless of whether Love plays or not.
