MILWAUKEE - Brandon Knight made a 3-pointer with 1.4 seconds left and finished with 25 points, and the Milwaukee Bucks snapped a six-game losing streak with a 101-98 victory Monday night over the New York Knicks.
Knight took a couple dribbles, then quickly fired his 3 from the wing with Raymond Felton leaping into the air. Felton turned in disbelief as Knight rushed down the other end to celebrate.
The Knicks had one last chance, though Carmelo Anthony misfired on a deep 3. He finished with 36 points.
New York rallied from a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter, but ended up falling to the worst team in the NBA.
Khris Middleton added 19 points and a season-high five 3s for Milwaukee, which also snapped a seven-game skid to New York.
RHINELANDER - Hodag Park received a sizable donation Thursday morning. New sand was dropped off to help the Rhinelander Parks Department grow the beach back to its original shape.
There were thousands of pounds of sand dropped off and spread out. There was a high need for this because of all the rain we've had this season.
"It was getting in pretty poor shape and washing out more and more, but this year especially, it just seems like we've lost a lot of sand. So now we're going to shape it up nicely and hopefully it'll last the year," said Rhinelander Parks Director, Jeremy Biolo.
All of that sand was donated and delivered by a company in Rhinelander.
"Musson Brothers, Inc. donated all the sand and they said we could help ourselves to as much as we want, which is unbelievable because this beach really needed some work," said Biolo. "Every little bit like that helps our community out and it improves the community. It's awesome that the Musson Brothers stepped up and would do that for us."
