The Milwaukee Bucks fought an overtime battle against the Sacramento Kings. No one in Sacramento was going to let this game slip away after four quarters and an extra period. But in the final seconds of the game, everyone at the Fiserv Forum knew the ball was going to go to DAME TIME. Lillard sank the shot with ease with a CLAMORIOUS buzzer beater.

With the Bucks down by 2 points and moments left in overtime, Lillard rushed the court and decided to take matters into his own hands.
Everyone knew who would take the final shot for the Bucks. Even with the presence of two-time league best player Giannis Antetokounmpo on the floor, it was always going to be Lillard who would get the last shot for Milwaukee. And of course Lillard scored for his team, nailing the shot from behind the arc and giving the Bucks a 143 to 142 victory.
This was a very important win for the Milwaukee Bucks, both for the standings and for morale. Giannis and his teammates had not done very well in the first games of January, although they have been on the upswing for the past week, and surely winning in overtime against a strong team like Sacramento will give them the right courage to keep working and improving!
