The Nets jumped in front early and led by 10 at the break, but Brandon Jennings brought the Bucks back in the third quarter. The point guard dropped 15 of his game-high 34 points in the third quarter to give the Bucks a one-point lead heading to the fourth quarter.
A back and forth fourth quarter saw the Nets get the ball down by three in the waning seconds when Johnson knocked down a three to send the game to overtime. After a similarly tense and close extra period, the Nets got the ball with the game tied and 10 seconds left to set up Johnson for the winner as time expired
