MILWAUKEE, Dec. 1 (UPI) -- Brandon Jennings drained a go-ahead 3-pointer with 24 seconds left in the game Saturday, elevating the Milwaukee Bucks over Boston 91-88.

Jennings' trey put Milwaukee up 90-88 and the Bucks added a final free throw from Larry Sanders (18 points, 16 rebounds, five blocked shots) to post a three-point lead.

They hung on for the win when Jason Terry and Paul Pierce both missed desperation 3-pointers on Boston's final possession.

Also reaching double figures for Milwaukee were Monta Ellis (17 points, seven assists, two steals) and Ersan Ilyasova (15 points, five rebounds).

The Celtics got 19 points and six assists from Pierce, along with 15 points and 11 assists from Terry, who filled in for the suspended Rajon Rondo.
