MILWAUKEE — Khris Middleton’s driving layup with less than 10 seconds to play carried the Milwaukee Bucks to a 96-95 victory over the Dallas Mavericks on Friday night.
Middleton scored 27 points, John Henson 16 and Michael Carter-Williams added 15 points and a season-high 12 rebounds as Milwaukee snapped Dallas’ six-game winning streak against them.
Dirk Nowitzki scored 20 points and Devin Harris came off the bench for a season-high 19 for Dallas.
Nowitzki made two free throws with 38 seconds left for Dallas’ first lead since early in the first quarter. But Henson later blocked his pass and it deflected to Middleton, who raced down the court and scored. Deron Williams missed at the buzzer for Dallas.
