MILWAUKEE — Brandon Knight scored 26 points and Giannis Antetokounmpo added 14 points and 11 rebounds as the Milwaukee Bucks held off the Boston Celtics 96-93 on Saturday night for their sixth win in seven games.

Milwaukee went more than 3 minutes without scoring before John Henson made a half-hook in the lane with 2:04 remaining to put the Bucks up 94-91. But at the other end, Henson was called for goaltending with 29.4 seconds to go to make it a one-point game.

The Bucks then ran the clock down to 6.7 seconds and Knight buried a jumper from the top left to make it 96-93.

It was Antetokounmpo’s fourth double-double in the last seven games, after getting three the entire season prior to Jan. 27.

Jared Sullinger had 17 points and Marcus Smart added 13 for Boston, which fell to 3-25 when trailing after three quarters.

The Bucks scored the final seven points of the first half for a 53-46 lead. Milwaukee extended the lead to 66-52, but Boston cut it to 80-75 entering the final quarter.

BULLS 107, PELICANS 72: After Pelicans All-Star Anthony Davis hurt his right shoulder on a hard, awkward fall on an alley-oop dunk, Pau Gasol and the Chicago pulled away at New Orleans.

Gasol had 20 points and 15 rebounds for Chicago, which snapped a three-game skid. Derrick Rose added 20 points for the Bulls, who went on a 40-11 run after Davis went out.

WIZARDS 114, NETS 77: John Wall scored 17 points, Rasual Butler had 15 and host Washington broke a five-game skid.

Playing without starting guard Bradley Beal, who sat out with an injured right big toe, the Wizards led throughout. The 37-point margin of victory was its largest of the season.

WARRIORS 106, KNICKS 92: Draymond Green had 20 points and 13 rebounds, and visiting Golden State gave Steve Kerr a victory in his first game coaching in the arena he nearly called home before choosing the Warriors last summer.

Stephen Curry scored 19 points and Klay Thompson had 16 on a night neither shot well.

76ERS 89, HORNETS 81: Robert Covington scored 11 of his game-high 22 points in a pivotal third quarter, leading Philadelphia to its fourth straight home victory after opening the season 3-18 on its home floor.

Al Jefferson had 18 points for Charlotte.


CLIPPERS: Guard Chris Paul was fined $25,000 for criticizing an official after Los Angeles lost 105-94 to Cleveland.

Paul was given a technical by Lauren Holtkamp on Thursday night and afterward said the call was “ridiculous” and seemed to imply that one of the NBA’s two female officials may have been in over her head, saying “this might not be for her.”

THUNDER: Center Kendrick Perkins was suspended for one game by the league for initiating head-to-head contact with New Orleans’ Tyreke Evans in a home loss Friday night.
