The New York Knicks held their nerve down the stretch, escaping with a 136-134 win over the Milwaukee Bucks in overtime on Saturday, thanks to some late game heroics from Emmanuel Mudiay.

Mudiay hit a clutch 3-pointer with 24.1 seconds left in regulation to tie things up at 124-124 and continued to get buckets in the extra period.

Mudiay finished with 28 points and seven assists on the night, rookie Kevin Knox added 26, while Damyean Dotson capped off a 21-point performance with a dagger 3-pointer in OT to give the Knicks a 135-134 lead.

After Mudiay split a pair of free throws, the Bucks had a chance to tie it, with Brook Lopez fouled with 1.2 seconds left. He missed the first and deliberately missed the second, with Giannis Antetokounmpo getting the ball but unable to get a clean look away.

Antetokounmpo was a force all night, finishing with 33 points, 19 rebounds, seven assists, three steals and two blocks, getting plenty of help from Eric Bledsoe (27 points) and Malcolm Brogdon (22 points).

New York's Mario Hezonja only scored two points in the game, but he had the crowd on their feet, coming up with this huge dunk on Giannis ... and a little bit of attitude.
