Cleveland at Milwaukee

Knight, Sessions help Bucks hold off Cavs wire reports

MILWAUKEE -- Brandon Knight scored 24 points and Ramon Sessions added 20 as Milwaukee held off the Cleveland Cavaliers 119-116 on Friday night, preserving the Bucks slim hopes of avoiding the NBA's worst record.

The victory moved the Bucks to within two games of Philadelphia with three games remaining for each team. The 76ers lost at Memphis earlier in the night.

Dion Waiters had 23 points for Cleveland, while Jarrett Jack added 21 and Tristan Thompson 18.

Knight's jumper from the right wing put the Bucks up for good at 107-106 with 4:09 remaining. Two free throws by Kyrie Irving pulled the Cavaliers within 111-110, but a basket by Khris Middleton and two free throws by Zaza Pachulia made it 115-110 with 1:44 remaining.
