Milwaukee rallies past Green Bay 95-94 on unlikely finish
MILWAUKEE (AP) Akeem Springs missed two free throws with four seconds left, but somehow grabbed the deflected rebound and Milwaukee held on, defeating Green Bay 95-94 in a see-saw contest on Friday night.
Jordan Johnson seemed poised to secure the win for Milwaukee (15-7, 6-3 Horizon), scoring seven of his 17 points in the last 1:28, making a 3-point play to stake the Panthers to a 95-92 lead with five seconds left.
Green Bay's Carrington Love, who led the Phoenix (13-9, 5-4) with 24 points, was fouled by Springs and made both, tightening the game to 95-94, also at the five-second mark.
Springs was fouled a tick later and missed both, but was in position for the rebound. Springs added 16 points and seven boards.
