Aside from how Minnesota shot from the field, the Timberwolves top five players scored in double figures. Taj Gibson led Minnesota with 23 points and Karl Anthony-Towns added 21 points in the win. Look for Anthony Towns and and Gibson to play solid against the Bucks.

The Bulls might be the worst team in the east this season, and were able to handle the Bucks by nine points. If the Bucks are going to be taken serious, they must start a win streak.
