MINNEAPOLIS, MINN (WSAU) A triple-double by Larry Sanders wasn’t enough to keep the Milwaukee Bucks from continuing the recent slump with a 95-85 loss on the road against Minnesota.

Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis each scored 18 for the Bucks in the loss, but they combined to miss 27 of 41 shots from the floor. Milwaukee had a chance to come back when the Wolves went ice cold in the third quarter.Rookie Alexey Shved scored 10 of his 16 points to lead Minnesota down the stretch.
The Bucks are back in action again tonight, hosting the Boston Celtics.
