Al Jefferson scored 26 points and grabbed nine rebounds and Kemba Walker was just shy of a triple double, finishing with 25 points, 10 assists and nine rebounds as the Charlotte Bobcats defeated the Milwaukee Bucks in overtime Monday night.
Brandon Knight also flirted with a triple double, scoring 26 points, dishing out 14 assists and grabbing eight rebounds. Khris Middleton had 19 points and John Henson and O.J. Mayo each had 14 points off of the bench for the Bucks.
After the Bucks took a 94-91 lead on a Henson jumper, the Bobcats scored the next eight points on a jumper by Gerald Henderson, a three-pointer from Anthony Tolliver and a bucket and free throw from Josh McRoberts to take a 99-94 lead. The Bucks scored the next four points and after a 13-footer by Walker was true, O.J. Mayo drilled a three-pointer with just one second left to send the game to overtime.
In overtime, with the Bucks trailing by three, Middleton hit a deep jumper that was called a two-pointer at the buzzer. After review, the call was upheld and the Bucks fell by one.
The Bobcats are now 14-15 while the Bucks fall to 6-22.
