Giannis Antetokounmpo had 26 points and 10 rebounds, and rookie Malcolm Brogdon made two free throws with eight seconds left to lift the host Milwaukee Bucks over the Oklahoma City Thunder, 98-94, on Monday night. 

With the Bucks leading, 96-94, Oklahoma City’s Russell Westbrook drove the lane but Tony Snell deflected the ball off the Thunder guard’s leg and the ball went out of bounds. The referees initially signaled the ball went off Snell, but after a video review, they reversed the call and gave Milwaukee possession. 

Brogdon then was fouled and made both free throws to seal the victory.

Westbrook led the Thunder with 30 points and six assists.
