Williams’ bucket with 0.3 left gives Clippers OT victory

Lou Williams drove through three Milwaukee players and lofted a shot from the right baseline that somehow found its way down with 0.3 seconds left, giving the Los Angeles Clippers a 128-126 overtime victory over the Bucks Saturday afternoon in Los Angeles.

Eric Bledsoe’s 3-pointer with 6.2 seconds left in regulation got the Bucks into overtime tied at 119. The shot kissed off the rim, the backboard and the rim four more times before falling through.

The Bucks scored the first bucket of overtime on an alley-oop dunk by Giannis Antetokounmpo, but fell behind until Antetokounmpo’s dunk tied it at 126 with 1:00 left. The Bucks got it back after a miss by rookie Shai Gilgeous-Alexander with 38 seconds left, but Gilgeous-Alexander got it back for the Clippers by snuffing out a Bledsoe drive.

Rather than call a timeout, the Clippers got the ball to Williams out top. He drove around the right side and got his winning shot up between Bledsoe and Brook Lopez.
