Dallas nabs win from Bucks in overtime
Dirk Nowitzki hit an 18-foot jump shot at the buzzer to give Dallas a 115-113 overtime victory over the Milwaukee Bucks at the Bradley Center on Monday.
It ended the Bucks' four-game winning streak, and was their first loss in five contests at home.
Milwaukee was down by 18 in the third quarter, but they led by two when the Mavericks' Jason Terry made the final basket of regulation.
Brandon Jennings, who scored 55 points on Saturday night, had 25 last night with eight assists and seven rebounds. But he only made of 8-22 shots from the floor.
Ersan Ilyasova had 19 points and 12 rebounds off the Milwaukee bench.
Nowitzki had 32 points and 11 boards for Dallas.
Jason Kidd just barely missed a triple-double with 17 assists, 10 rebounds and nine points.
Dallas forward Shawn Marion left in the second quarter with a sprained ankle. The Mavericks improved to 8-3 overall, and they completed a four-game road trip at 3-1.
The Bucks fell to 5-3 overall. They'll host New Jersey Wednesday.
