Bucks 101, Knicks 98

Brandon Knight's three-pointer with 1.4 seconds remaining led the Milwaukee Bucks to a victory over the New York Knicks.

Knight's shot, his fourth three-pointer of the night, came seconds after Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony tied the game at 98-98 with his sixth of the night from long distance.

The Bucks (9-39) had lost 15-of-16 and six in a row, but behind Knight's 25 points, they beat New York (19-29) for the first time since March 9, 2012.

Anthony finished with 36 points.
