Brandon Knight scored 30 points, Ramon Sessions added 22 and the Milwaukee Bucks held off the Los Angeles Lakers, 108-105, at the BMO Harris Bradley Center on Thursday night, snapping an eight-game losing streak.
Knight, who scored 37 points against the Lakers in a win back on New Year's Eve, shot 12-of-21 from the floor. Sessions went 5-of-10 and hit 11 of his 14 free-throw attempts.
The Bucks, who led by as much as 12 in the fourth quarter, shot 55.7 percent from the floor and went 24-of-34 from the charity stripe.
Los Angeles got an extraordinary effort from Jordan Hill, who tied a career-high with 28 points and also grabbed 16 rebounds. However, 20 turnovers and the inability to secure defensive rebounds late in the game did Mike D'Antoni's ballclub in.
LA shot 49.4 percent from the field.
The Lakers were attempting to win their third straight contest, something they have not done since Nov. 17-24.
Milwaukee wing Giannis Antetokounmpo sprained his ankle in the fourth quarter and did not return.
