Wolves 107, Bucks 113

From Steve Aschburner/Star Tribune:
...the Wolves, missing key shots and failing to get key stops late, failed to make good on the pledge, promise, challenge or whatever it was to wind up with the victory.

Box Score

Tempers flared with 5 1/2 minutes to play. Andrew Bogut pushed Wolves guard Ricky Davis under the basket, drawing a technical foul. Garnett came to Davis' aid and pushed Bogut after briefly jawing at him. Garnett and Davis also received technical fouls on the exchange, with officials being extra vigilant in the wake of the brawl between the Nuggets and Knicks last week.

In an eyebrow-raising scene before the game, Wolves owner Glen Taylor sat in on Casey's pregame interview session with the media, listening intently as Casey broke down the collapse against the Lakers and what needed to be done to turn things around.

Taylor interjected a few times, saying that he remained supportive of Casey despite his frustration with the team's record.
