The Milwaukee Bucks wrapped up their preseason in a successful way and we saw more positive than negative overall from the team.
The Milwaukee Bucks concluded their preseason in an emphatic way when they obliterated the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday night to the tune of 143-121.

It was a great way to head into the regular season which the Bucks will open up on Wednesday, Oct. 17 at the Charlotte Hornets. Milwaukee continued to showcase a number of new and improved aspects to their game which we will likely see throughout the rest of the 2018-19 season.
