Bucks win fifth straight in thrilling fashion over Lakers

O.J. Mayo's three pointer with less than a second to play forced overtime, and the Bucks pulled away from the Lakers in the extra period for a 113-105 victory, the Bucks' fifth straight win.

Down by six with a minute to play, the Bucks got clutch three pointers from Mayo (21 points) and Brandon Knight (24 points) to help set up a final shot to tie the game. Mayo went to the corner and buried the three to send the game to overtime.

Giannis Antetokounmpo led the Bucks with 25 points. Milwaukee (27-22) has the third longest current win streak in the league, behind Cleveland and Memphis.
