MILWAUKEE- — The Milwaukee Bucks suffered a disappointing 107-98 loss to the lowly Minnesota Timberwolves at the BMO Harris Bradley Center Wednesday night, but their magic number for reaching the playoffs was reduced to two when Charlotte beat Philadelphia.

Milwaukee’s defense was missing in action again, and they played from behind for most of the game.

Ersan Ilyasova was a bright spot; he scored 27 of his game-high 29 points in the first three quarters; he added 12 rebounds.

The Bucks travel to New York for Friday night’s game against red-hot Carmelo Anthony (82 points last 2 games) and the rest of the Knicks.
