Knight misses game winner but still gains redemption in Bucks' 3 OT win

Brandon Knight had one of the most memorable nights of his NBA career, missing a potential game-winning layup, but then hitting a game-tying three pointer and some key free throws in the Bucks' 122-118 winner in three overtimes.

Knight stole a pass with 6 seconds to play in the first overtime period and raced toward his own basket, nothing but open space in front of him. As the clock wound down to the final second, Knight chose to lay the ball up instead of dunking it. The shot rimmed out and the score remained tied going to asecondd overtime. Knight then hit a game-tying three in the second OT and the game icing free throws in the third extra period. It's the Bucks first triple overtime game since 1989.

The game was Jason Kidd's first in Brooklyn after leaving the Nets to take Milwaukee's head coaching position.
