Bucks survive shaky free-throw shooting to edge Mavs 112-109

MILWAUKEE (AP) Khris Middleton made a couple of huge 3-pointers and the Milwaukee Bucks overcame poor free-throw shooting to snap the Dallas Mavericks' four-game winning streak.

Middleton scored eight points of his 25 points in the final 2 1/2 minutes of the Bucks' 112-109 victory Friday night. Middleton took over after James Johnson's corner 3-pointer with 3:09 left put Dallas ahead 104-103 - the Mavericks' first lead since the opening five minutes.

"He's just a great decision-maker," Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer said. "He knows to take what the defense gives him. If he's got a shot, he's an incredible shot-maker, but he's an incredible playmaker. ... He's just a great finisher."
