HOUSTON -- Monta Ellis sank an off-balance 3-pointer just before the final buzzer to give the Milwaukee Bucks a 110-107 victory over the Houston Rockets on Wednesday night.
Ellis scored 27 points and handed out 13 assists, Eryan Ilyasova added 20 points and the Bucks won in Houston for the second straight season.
The Bucks went down to the wire again after beating Dallas 95-90 on Tuesday and losing their previous three games by no more than three points. Ellis took a pass from Brandon Jennings and heaved a shot off one foot as time was winding down. The referees watched a replay and ruled that Ellis shot it in time.
James Harden scored 25 and Omer Asik grabbed a career-high 22 rebounds for Houston.
