Jennings' 3 at the buzzer lifts Bucks over Cavs
MILWAUKEE 105, CLEVELAND 102

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.



Kyrie Irving scored 27 points for Cleveland, tying the game with
seven-tenths of a second remaining on a driving layin over Ersan
Ilyasova and Ekpe Udoh. 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.



"We run that play every day in practice so I knew I'd get a good
open look," Jennings said. "I knew I had a chance at hitting
it."



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



"To be 2-0 right now feels good," Dunleavy said. "You can't do
any better than that. We feel like obviously we have a lot of
room to improve, but it's a nice start."



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 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 and Cleveland took
possession with 9.2 seconds to go.



Irving then used a pick by Varejao to get around Jennings and
lifted a high shot over Ilyasova to tie the score a 102 with
seven-tenths of a second to go.



Jennings scored 13 points and had 13 assists. Larry Sanders had
a career-high 17 points before fouling out late in the game.



Milwaukee coach Scott Skiles said during the preseason he wanted
Dunleavy coming off the bench to ensure some scoring when the
second unit was playing. The veteran forward made 10 of 12
shots, including six of seven 3-pointers, in 35 minutes.



Milwaukee beefed up its roster during the off-season by drafting
John Henson, and acquiring Samuel Dalembert and Joel Przybilla
to bolster its inside defense. But with Henson out due to injury
and Dalembert and Przybilla playing limited minutes, Varejao was
able to dominate in the post, scoring 20 points on 10 of 13
shooting while grabbing 17 rebounds.



Notes: Przybilla made his season debut in the second quarter and
was whistled for a technical foul for arguing after playing only
2 minutes. . Alonzo Gee scored nine points in the first 4:34 of
the game. . North Carolina coach Roy Williams was sitting
courtside at the game. Cleveland's Zeller and the Bucks' Henson
both attended UNC. ... Henson is out with a sprained left knee,
but may return Wednesday when the Bucks host Memphis.
