The Hawks forced overtime when Alex Len canned a 3-pointer with 19.5 seconds remaining in regulation, with Sterling Brown missing a pull-up jumper with two seconds to go that would have won it for the Bucks, who blew a 23-point first-half lead.

Brown scored a career-high 27 points to go with three steals for Milwaukee, which played without injured starters Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton and Malcolm Brogdon and rested Eric Bledsoe. Tim Frazier went all 53 minutes and finished with 20 points and 15 assists.
