The Milwaukee Bucks kept the good times rolling as they outclassed the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday night to add to their undefeated start to the 2018-19 NBA season.

Entering the contest undefeated, the Milwaukee Bucks went full-on supernova in the North Star State Friday night as they completely boat-raced the Minnesota Timberwolves in the Target Center, winning 125-95.

It took some time for the Bucks to get to that point as both teams were running a bit ragged to get things going to start the night. With that said, the Bucks’ ability to find their touch from beyond the arc in the latter minutes of the first quarter propelled them to take a 27-16 lead after one.

From there, the Bucks managed to blow the doors wide open throughout the second quarter as they hit a groove in their three-point offense and pushed the Wolves to their limits in the open floor, leaving them all out of sorts.

That all led to the Bucks holding a 63-38 lead heading into halftime, much to the displeasure of the Wolves fan faithful.

Coming out of the halftime break, the Bucks learned their lesson from holding sizeable leads to only see it disappear later on in previous games throughout the second half. In fact, they only added to their gaudy lead during the third quarter and led 97-67 heading into the final frame.

By this point, Bucks head coach Mike Budenholzer turned to his end of bench players, some of whom made their season debuts, to help put a bow on the proceedings during the fourth quarter, which they promptly did.

All in all, it was an incredibly well-balanced performance the Bucks crafted from top to bottom that saw all those who dressed for the game get some some burn with the second end of a back-to-back looming back in Milwaukee Saturday night.

So without further ado, let’s break down the Bucks’ commanding victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves from Friday night, starting with their three-point explosion.
