Brandon Knight scored just two of his game-high 26 points in the fourth quarter. He couldn’t have picked a better time for those two points, though.
Knight hit a jumper from the top of the key with 6.7 seconds left to help the Milwaukee Bucks hold off the Boston Celtics 96-93 on Saturday night for their sixth win in seven games.
“He was great for us all night,” Bucks coach Jason Kidd said. “He had a lot of energy. He was finding open guys and on top of that he was finding shots early and then the big one there in the fourth quarter. That definitely was a big shot and you see he had a lot of confidence.”
“It was a phenomenal shot, well defended,” said Boston coach Brad Stevens. “I thought Brandon Bass did a phenomenal job guarding. That is what the guys do in those moments. So hats off to him.”
