Another one of Kevin Garnett’s greatest games against the Bucks, another Timberwolves victory. Some of these Bucks teams were actually good, but they weren’t good enough to mess with prime KG.
He droped 29 points on Milwaukee while adding 18 rebounds, six assists, a steal and a block. Garnett made half of his field goals and led both teams in scoring. Robinson and Allen made it close with 25 and 24 points respectively, but Garnett ended up on top.
As did the Timberwolves. The Bucks had a three-point lead going into the fourth quarter, but Minnesota finished stronger and came away with the victory. Terrell Brandon had one of the better revenge game performances you’ll find in this game, as he dropped 20 points and 16 assists on Milwaukee with an incredible 72.7 field goal percentage. He only took 11 shots!
This was the best Bucks team of the aughts, and the one that went on to the Eastern Conference Finals. The Timberwolves went on to quietly exit the first round after running into a terrific San Antonio Spurs team, something that happened quite often back in the early 2000s.
