Bucks’ tip-in with 2.2 seconds left sinks rallying Wizards
Milwaukee’s point guard dribbled the ball off his foot with 12 seconds left, then allowed John Wall to get by him and score on a running, 8-foot jumper for a 118-117 Wizards lead with 6.8 seconds to go.
Washington’s Chris Singleton had come across the lane and left Ilyasova open in an attempt to double-team Jennings. But that left the Bucks forward in position for an easy tip-in with no one to block him out.
“I found myself open,” Ilyasova said. “I tipped it in and we won the game. It was the right spot for me.”
Roger Mason Jr. received an inbounds pass on the baseline for Washington but was called for traveling with 1 second to go without getting off a shot.
“I feel bad for our guys that I missed that opportunity,” he said. “I have had a bunch of those end-of-the-game situations and I have hit a bunch of them. This is the first time not coming through.”
Jennings finished with 14 points and 10 assists. Drew Gooden, who returned after missing four games with a sprained right wrist, had 15 points and 10 rebounds but landed hard on his back in the third quarter and did not return.
Milwaukee opened a 22-point lead in the first half, but Washington hit six 3-pointers in the third quarter to get back in the game.
“We played guys who wanted to play defense in the second half,” Wittman said.
