MINNEAPOLIS – Mo Williams followed up his first career triple-double in style.

Williams scored 16 of his 26 points in the fourth quarter to lift the Milwaukee Bucks to a 113-107 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday night.

Williams, who had 19 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists in a victory over Miami on Wednesday night, scored six straight points for the Bucks in the final 2 minutes, and Michael Redd sealed the victory with a jumper with 11.4 seconds to play.

Redd scored 29 points on 11-of-25 shooting and Charlie Bell was one point off his career high with 28 points for the Bucks, who have won three in a row for the first time this season.

Kevin Garnett had 24 points and 14 rebounds and Mike James scored 28 for the reeling Timberwolves, who have lost four in a row.

Tempers flared in with 51/2 minutes to play. Andrew Bogut pushed Wolves guard Ricky Davis under the basket, drawing a technical foul. Garnett came to Davis’ aid and pushed Bogut after briefly jawing at him. Garnett and Davis also received technical fouls on the exchange, with officials being extra vigilant in the wake of the brawl between the Nuggets and Knicks last week.

Redd made the technical free throw to give the Bucks a 97-96 lead, and the Timberwolves never regained the lead.
