MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Carlos Delfino scored 24 points, and rookie Brandon Jennings had 18 points and a career-high 13 assists, leading the Milwaukee Bucks to a 127-94 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Saturday night.
Minnesota has lost seven of eight and 12 of 14.
The Bucks had lost six of eight games coming into the game, and coach Scott Skiles called it "a must win" before the game. His team did not disappoint, leading from the first quarter on and holding a double-digit lead for most of the final three quarters.
Delfino came into the game averaging 9.2 points, but has averaged 18.8 the past five games. He made nine of 11 shots and had eight rebounds and eight assists, starting his third consecutive game.
Rookie Jonny Flynn had 20 points, and Corey Brewer added 18 for Minnesota.
