MILWAUKEE

Brandon Jennings hit a 3-pointer at the buzzer to give the Milwaukee Bucks a 105-102 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday night.

The referees used video replay to confirm the shot left Jennings’ hand with one-tenth of a second left on the clock.

Mike Dunleavy had 29 points, 12 rebounds and six assists for Milwaukee.

Kyrie Irving scored 27 points for Cleveland, tying the game with seven-tenths of a second remaining on a driving layin over Ersan Ilyasova. Dunleavy then inbounded from the top of the 3-point line to Jennings, who hit the winning shot and celebrated by joyously running the length of the court to his teammates.

The Bucks (2-0) used a late 12-2 run to take overtake Cleveland (1-2), which was opening a six-game road trip.

Milwaukee took a 102-95 on the late run, but Irving converted a three-point play and hit a pair of free throws to bring Cleveland within 102-100 with 33.6 seconds to go.

Jennings then missed a running jumper with 10 seconds left, but the ball went off Cleveland’s Anderson Varejao out of bounds with a tenth of a second left on the shot clock.

Dunleavy inbounded to Jennings who scored on a quick jumper but referee Kevin Fehr waived it off as a shot clock violation. The call was confirmed during video replay.
