Final Score: Magic send Bucks to shocking overtime loss, 113-103

The heroics of one former Bucks sent the game to overtime and the Magic never looked back. Another Milwaukee loss in a game that shouldn't really have been close.


Tobias Harris hit a game-tying three point shot with just over a second remaining and the Orlando Magic dominated the extra period to send the Milwaukee Bucks to yet another crushing defeat as they "tune up" for the playoffs. Harris had a chance to win the game in regulation on a free throw from a questionable continuation call on his 3-pointer but couldn't sink the freebie. Harris finished with 30 points, 19 rebounds, and 5 assists on 13-20 shooting, including an emphatic dunk in the closing seconds that earned him and Mike Dunleavy a double-technical after knocking shoulders. Nikola Vucevic had 30 points, 20 rebounds, and 5 assists, while Doron Lamb sank 4 of his 6 three-point attempts and had 16 points.

The Bucks were led by 21 points, 11 assists, and 7 rebounds from Monta Ellis, but he shot just 7-27 from the field and 1-8 from behind the arc. Brandon Jennings and Larry Sanders both missed most of the game due to injury: Jennings was nursing a sore hamstring while Sanders exited the game after taking a nasty fall right on his lower back. John Henson put up some big numbers in relief of Sanders, notching 17 points (7-17 FG), 25 rebounds, and 7 blocks. He might have had 8 rejections but was whistled for a goaltend on a hook shot by Vucevic with 25 seconds left. Replays showed the ball may have still been going up, but the call stood and proved critical, cutting the Bucks' lead from five to three.

J.J. Redick scored 16 points in his return to Orlando but was just 1-7 from three. Mike Dunleavy added 17, while Marquis Daniels had 14 points, 7 rebounds, and 3 steals.
