Brandon Knight overcame a bizarre foot injury, scoring 18 points and making two free throws with 5.5 seconds left Tuesday night to seal the Milwaukee Bucks’ 104-100 victory over the Orlando Magic in a game between two of the NBA’s worst teams.
Orlando fell to 3-24 on the road. Despite snapping a four-game losing streak, the Bucks have lost 19 of 22 overall.
Knight played 34 minutes despite slicing his foot open on a baseboard while stepping out of his bathroom shower Tuesday afternoon. He missed 10 of 13 shots from the field but hit all 12 of his free throws.
Arron Afflalo scored 21 points and Nikola Vucevic added 19 for Orlando.
