Lopez, Nets pull out 3-overtime victory over slumping Bucks

Posted:

NEW YORK (AP) -- Brook Lopez had 32 points and a season-high 18 rebounds, helping the Brooklyn Nets to a 129-127 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks in the second triple-overtime meeting between the teams this season.

Lopez threw down a powerful dunk on a three-point play to open the scoring in the third OT, and the Nets finally held on to hand the Bucks their fifth straight loss.

Milwaukee had pulled out a 122-118 triple-overtime win here on Nov. 19 in former Nets coach Jason Kidd's first trip back to Brooklyn. The Bucks (34-35) led this game by 14 points in the second half before falling for the 10th time in 12 games, falling below .500 for the first time since December.

Zaza Pachulia had 22 points, 21 rebounds -- 18 offensive -- and seven assists for Milwaukee.
