They have three consecutive wins and in their last game they won on the road against the Knicks with a 115-104 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Karl-Anthony Towns with 23.1 ppg, adding a team high 12 boards per game. He is followed by Derrick Rose with 18.3 ppg and 4.7 dimes per game.

They also have a better field goal percentage (47.9% to 45.2%), while Wolves have a better 3-point percentage (35.3% to 34.9%). Bucks are better both in dimes made (26.1 to 24.5) and in boards grabbed (48.9 to 45), while Wolves are better in turnovers committed (12.7 to 13.6).
