Recap: Milwaukee vs. Utah

Milwaukee, WI (Sports Network) - Monta Ellis scored 34 points on 15-of-21 shooting and the Milwaukee Bucks defeated the Utah Jazz, 109-108, in overtime on Monday.

Brandon Jennings recorded a double-double with 20 points and 17 assists, while J.J. Redick scored 17 points off the bench for the Bucks, who are on a four- game winning streak. Larry Sanders had eight points, 16 rebounds and six blocks for Milwaukee.

Derrick Favors registered 23 points and 15 rebounds, Paul Millsap had 22 points and 14 rebounds and Enes Kanter added 18 points and grabbed 10 boards for the Jazz, who were coming off a win against Charlotte on Friday.

The Bucks trailed 48-45 at halftime but won the third quarter and had a 75-65 advantage entering the fourth.

The Jazz were determined to come back, and with 2:47 remaining in regulation, Kanter made a tip shot to give Utah a 92-91 edge.

Down 99-96 with eight seconds to go, Jennings fired a 3-pointer to tie the game at 99-99 and sent the game into overtime.

"Our guys are gritty and have a lot of fight in them," Bucks head coach Jim Boyland said.

The two teams traded shots in the opening minute, but it was Redick who would be the hero for Milwaukee, scoring eight points for the Bucks, including a 3- pointer that would permanently give them the lead, 107-105, with 47 seconds to go.

DeMarre Caroll drew a loose ball foul with 34 seconds left, but only made one of his two free throws to pull the Jazz within one, 107-106.

With 14.7 seconds remaining, Ellis fired a jumper to put the Bucks up by three.

The Jazz tried everything in their power to tie the game, but it was not meant to be.

Millsap attempted a layup with 10.7 seconds remaining, but was blocked. Randy Foye then fired a 3-pointer with 6.9 seconds left but missed. Utah settled with a layup by Kanter with 1.6 seconds remaining.

"We had an opportunity to win the game," Millsap said. "You can't make excuses. We have to find a way to win."
