Barnes scores career-high 34, Mavs beat Bucks 86-75 in OT

Dallas Mavericks were below par in their first five matches of the National Basketball Association season, losing all of them, and were hence determined to script their maiden win.

With the team in search of its first win and two starters out, Barnes scored a career-high 34 points and the Mavericks beat the Milwaukee Bucks 86-75 in overtime Sunday.

Nowitzki missed Sunday's game with a right Achilles injury and the Mavericks also were without Milwaukee native Devin Harris (right big toe sprain) and Deron Williams (left calf strain). Barnes was an impressive 13-for-26 from the floor and snagged eight rebounds. "It allows us to play small with more size and more force", he said. "Barnes carried us throughout the game, and we had other players, too".

Andrew Bogut returned from a one-game absence (personal reasons) and pulled down 16 rebounds.

George Hill had 23 points and nine assists for the Jazz, who have won three of four.

The Bucks had a three-game winning streak snapped.

Their lone Champions League win came against lowly Legia Warsaw who have yet to win a game and have a goal difference of -13. Thomas Tuchel's side shaded the early exchanges, as shots from Pulisic and Julian Weigl threatened Rui Patricio's goal.


Jabari Parker led Milwaukee with 16 points, but only two after halftime.

Appearing for the first time in 2016-17, Gordon Hayward scored 28 points. We can't let that happen.

The Bucks were 0-for-4 with five turnovers during the extra five minutes to seal the loss.

"It's bad news, but we'll get through it", Dallas coach Rick Carlisle said. "On defense, we were great". "We've been fighting in these other games".

"In the past I might have been a little more suicidal just because we're a much older team". "We always could have some hangover from the last win". Barnes is averaging career-best numbers across the board through six games, posting 20.8 points and 6.5 rebounds in 38.5 minutes per outing. "We felt it was just a matter of him getting comfortable and he would start making shots".

Jordan Clarkson drained a jump shot, and after Nick Young was fouled making a three-pointer and made the free-throw to complete the four-point play the Lakers were up 99-92, and the Suns wouldn't get any closer. Rudy Gobert and Derrick Favors each had 13. He also struggled to drive past the nimble Barea when given the ball.

    They need Washington to keep winning and to be in that top four area when they would meet again in the Pac-12 Championship Game. But with a No. 69 strength of schedule, it seems unlikely the Huskies would get in over an 11-1 Texas A&M if they finish 12-1.
