Rookie Jon Leuer converted a three-point play with 1:17 left, helping the Milwaukee Bucks hold off the Minnesota Timberwolves for a 98-95 victory in their home opener Tuesday night.

Brandon Jennings scored 24 points and Stephen Jackson added 16 for the Bucks, who were playing without forward Drew Gooden because of a suspension and several other key players because of injuries.

Kevin Love had 31 points and 20 rebounds for the Timberwolves, whose late rally came up just short.

Minnesota was without coach Rick Adelman, who was attending funeral services for his mother-in-law. Assistant Terry Porter, a former head coach in Milwaukee, filled in for Adelman.
