And it almost paid off.

But Brandon Jennings rattled in a 3-pointer with 8.4 seconds remaining to tie the game at 99. On the Jazz’s final possession, Gordon Hayward cut to the basket and was clobbered by center Larry Sanders, who leads the NBA in blocks. However, no foul was called.

Asked later how much contact there was on the play, Hayward cautiously said, “Obviously not enough for there to be a foul, I guess it was a good defensive play.”

In overtime, J.J. Redick scored the Bucks’ first eight points, including two 3-pointers, to put Milwaukee up 107-105. After Utah’s Carroll split free throws with 34.2 seconds remaining, Monta Ellis dribbled out most of the shot clock, before nailing an 18-footer from the top of the key with 14.7 seconds.

“He’s a big shot maker,” Corbin said. “He’s used to it. He likes big moments, and he made a couple of great plays in big moments of the game.”

Ellis led the Bucks with 34 points, while Jennings added 20 points and 17 rebounds.

The Jazz were able to run four separate inbound plays in the final 14 seconds, but both Foye — who had not played since the 2:48 mark of the third quarter — and Millsap missed 3-pointers before Kanter scored on a putback with 1.6 seconds left.

“We needed this one tonight,” Hayward said. “Unfortunately we felt like we gave it away a little bit. It’s tough. Can’t get it back.”
