MILWAUKEE(AP) -- Rookie Brandon Jennings made the most of his first preseason start, scoring 16 points and handing out seven assists to lead the Milwaukee Bucks to a 101-87 victory over the short-handed Minnesota Timberwolves on Saturday night.

Michael Redd, who missed the final 35 games of last season with torn anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments in his left knee, added 15 points for the Bucks. Andrew Bogut, who missed the final 31 games of the 2008-09 campaign with an injured lower back, added 10 points and 13 rebounds.

Rookie Jonny Flynn, the No. 6 pick in the 2009 draft, had 19 points for Minnesota, which lost its fourth straight preseason game.
