MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Brandon Jennings just beat the clock lifting the Milwaukee Bucks to a thrilling victory.

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

''It was actually an ugly game for us,'' Jennings said a few minutes after he led a wild celebration on the court. ''It wasn't our best performance but if we want to get over the hump these are the games we need to win.''

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, which trailed much of the game. He threw a perfect inbounds pass to Jennings at the top of the key and the Bucks guard swished the winning shot with Cleveland center Anderson Varejao running at him.

''I was thinking about calling a timeout,'' Dunleavy said about the play not developing quickly. ''He got it with a nice rhythm coming off his left hand.''

Cleveland coach Byron Scott hinted that maybe the clock started late on the decisive final play.

''I don't want to get fined, but I am not going to say nothing about the clock starting late on the last shot,'' he said. ''They have to figure out a way to do something about that.

''Bottom line is either it doesn't count or you take it out again,'' he said. ''You're looking at it again in your locker room a couple times, the shot shouldn't have counted.''

Scott said he would send tape of the play to league offices.
