Bucks overcome Knight's stunning miss, win in 3OTs

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (AP) -

The Milwaukee Bucks overcame Brandon Knight's shocking missed layup at the end of the first overtime to outlast the Nets 122-118 in three overtimes on Wednesday night in coach Jason Kidd's return to Brooklyn.

Knight made the tying 3-pointer in the second overtime and the clinching free throws with 5.6 seconds to go in the third, allowing the Bucks to leave with a victory that he should've provided much sooner.

Rookie Jabari Parker scored a season-high 23 points, O.J. Mayo added 21, and Knight and Giannis Antetokounmpo each had 18 for the Bucks, who won their third straight.

Brook Lopez scored a season-best 26 points for the Nets, who have dropped five in a row.
