Then Patrick Beverley entered the picture and that escalated quickly. I mean, that really got out of hand fast.

This ended with Beverley getting ejected — and he could see a suspension (there is a history) or at least a heavy fine for his rule — as was Geoge Hill from the Bucks. Serge Ibaka got a technical for wanting to re-engage with Beverley.
Minnesota pulled away in the third quarter on to win handily, 138-119, behind 25 each from Karl-Anthony Towns and Anthony Edwards. Milwaukee was without Giannis Antetokounmpo, who sat due to a sore knee.
