MILWAUKEE (AP) – Rookie Andrew Bogut made two free throws late in overtime, then blocked a potential game-tying shot at the buzzer to lift the Milwaukee Bucks past the Dallas Mavericks 113-111 Tuesday night.

Bogut, the No. 1 pick in the draft, finished with a career-high 19 points. He added 14 rebounds.

T.J. Ford had a career-high 24 points, including a key 3-pointer with 31 seconds remaining. Bobby Simmons led Milwaukee, playing without leading scorer Michael Redd, with 26 points.

Jason Terry had 37 points for Dallas, but Bogut blocked his running 10-footer at the buzzer to seal the victory and snap Dallas’ four-game winning streak. Milwaukee had lost four of five.

The game was tied at 100 going into overtime, and Milwaukee took a 107-102 lead after a jumper by Simmons.

But Dallas responded with six straight points, taking a 108-107 lead when Dirk Nowitzki sank an 18-foot jumper over Bogut with 51 seconds remaining. Simmons then set up Ford for a wide-open 3-pointer from the left corner to make it 110-108.

Two free throws by Bogut made it 112-108, but Terry’s 3-pointer left made it 112-111 with 5.1 seconds left.

Ford made the second of two free throws with 4.6 seconds remaining to make it a two-point game and set up Bogut’s block.

Redd, fifth in the NBA in scoring at 25.9 points per game, was out after hurting his right quadriceps during practice Monday. He is listed as day-to-day.

Milwaukee led 55-54 at halftime and scored the first nine points of the second half to take a 10-point lead.

Terry had 15 points on 5-of-6 shooting in the period to keep Dallas in it. He scored 10 straight points to close out the quarter.

The game was close the rest of the way.

Milwaukee scored five straight points to lead 100-98 on Simmons’ layup with 33 seconds left. Terry’s running layup 4 seconds later tied it 100.

Terry, who won Monday night’s game at Toronto with a floater at the buzzer, missed a fadeaway 10-footer over Ford at the horn to force overtime.

Daniels had a season-high 21 points for Dallas. Keith Van Horn added 14 before fouling out midway through the fourth quarter.

Mo Williams, who started in place of Redd, added 16 for Milwaukee.

Nowitzki, coming off a 29-point night Monday night at Toronto, shot just 5-of-22. He added 12 rebounds.

Notes: Milwaukee’s Joe Smith missed his second straight game with left knee pain. Dallas was without forward Josh Howard (sprained right ankle) for the second straight game. … Milwaukee leads the all-time series against Dallas 32-17. The Bucks have won 21 of 25 games over Dallas in Milwaukee.
