MILWAUKEE (AP) — Giannis Antetokounmpo scored a career-high 25 points and Brandon Knight had 24 as the Milwaukee Bucks outlasted the Los Angeles Lakers 113-105 in overtime Wednesday night for their fifth consecutive victory.
Knight, who returned to the lineup after missing Monday's game in Toronto with a quadriceps injury, scored 12 points in overtime. Khris Middleton and O.J. Mayo added 21 points apiece for Milwaukee. Mayo sent the game to the extra session with one of 11 3-pointers by the host.
Carlos Boozer had 28 points for the Lakers, who lost for the 11th time in 12 games — including eight in a row on the road. Ed Davis had 20 rebounds for Los Angeles.
Boozer's layup with 1:02 remaining in the fourth quarter gave the Lakers a six-point lead. Mayo sank a 3-pointer to cut it to 91-88, but Jeremy Lin connected for a 3 on the next possession for the Lakers. Knight's 3-pointer made it 94-91 with 20.4 seconds left.
