Michael Beasley made two free throws with 9.1 seconds left to lift the Minnesota Timberwolves to an 85-84 comeback victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night. Kevin Love, who had 22 points and 16 rebounds, hit a 3-pointer to cut Milwaukee's lead to 84-83. Luke Ridnour intercepted Larry Sanders' poor inbound pass on the next possession and Beasley did the rest for Minnesota, which overcame a 10-point deficit. Beasley finished with 12 points for the Timberwolves, who were without guards J.J. Barea (left quad contusion) and 2009 No. 1 pick Ricky Rubio (right ankle sprain). Drew Gooden scored 15 points for Milwaukee and Stephen Jackson had seven in his Bucks debut.
