Timberwolves beat Bucks 110-91

MILWAUKEE (AP) Minnesota Timberwolves center Nikola Pekovic has been limited by ankle problems in his four-year NBA career, prompting the coaching staff to cap his minutes this season in an effort to keep him healthy.

Pekovic responded with a highly effective effort Wednesday night, finishing in 15 points and 13 rebounds in a little more than 19 minutes in Minnesota's 110-91 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks.

"I work in the summer, but it is not the same if you don't have games," Pekovic said. "I know my body is little slow to start. I need a little time to catch up. That's the point of the pre-season. I hadn't played a game in so long. I hope this progress will continue."
