CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Brandon Knight scored 18 points, including a layup to force overtime, and the Milwaukee Bucks pulled away to beat the Charlotte Hornets 104-94 on Monday.

Jared Dudley scored 17 points, Giannis Antetokounm had 16, Zaza Pachulia had 15, O.J. Mayo had 13 and John Henson added 11 for the Bucks (16-16), who snapped a seven-game losing streak to the Hornets dating back to the 2011-2012 season.

Kemba Walker scored 28 points, Gerald Henderson added 19 and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist scored 10 for the Hornets (10-22), who fought back from a 21-point deficit in the first half.

Walker's layup with 54.5 seconds remaining gave Charlotte an 83-81 lead, but Knight followed up his own blocked shot for a layup with 16 seconds left to tie the score and force overtime.

Milwaukee then pulled ahead for good on Henson's three-point play with 3:51 left in overtime. The Bucks led by 13 points in the extra period.
