WASHINGTON -- Milwaukee coach Larry Drew waited less than 30 seconds to call timeout and express his displeasure with his young teams defence against the Washington Wizards. When the game was on the line, he was happy with what he saw. Khris Middleton scored a career-high 29 points and Brandon Knight added 20 as the Bucks beat the Wizards 109-105 in overtime. Washington went 0 for 6 from the field in the extra period. "I thought they did a really good job, particularly defensively in overtime," Drew said. "I think they really locked in." John Henson had 19 points and 17 rebounds for the Bucks (4-15), who had lost 13 of their previous 14. "It was huge," Middleton said of the win. "Weve been struggling all season so far and just to gut out a win like this in overtime is good." John Wall scored 30 points and Trevor Ariza added 22 points and 12 rebounds for Washington. With the score tied at 102 heading to the extra period, Hensens jumper put the Bucks ahead in the opening minute and Ersan Ilyasova layup made it 106-102 with 3:12 to go. Ariza was fouled and made three free throws with 42.8 seconds left to pull the Wizards within one. Knight answered with a jumper with 21.1 seconds left and added a free throw 12 seconds later to seal the win and avenge Washingtons overtime win last week in Milwaukee. "I think weve given away a lot of wins," Knight said. "Weve gifted a lot of teams this year." Washington (9-10) had won two straight and missed chance to go over the .500 mark for the first time in four years "Somebody on this team has got to become the leader that doesnt allow these things to happen," Wizards coach Randy Wittman said. "I went into the locker room to talk to them before the game. It was carefree unlike the last two weeks. ... I told our guys when we walked out we could be in a little trouble tonight. Washington went 0 for 6 from the field in overtime. The Wizards, who trailed by 13 at halftime, rallied and led by five after Walls jumper with 43 seconds left in regulation. Middletons jumper cut the lead to three and, after a miss by Wall, Knights 3-pointer with 15.1 seconds left tied the score at 102. Washingtons Chris Singleton missed a corner three as regulation ended. "First half we played bad. Second half we had a chance to win it," Wall said. "The last 40 seconds we didnt execute. What were supposed to do to get stops. Washington lost Martel Webster to a sprained left ankle at the end of the first quarter and Nene (right knee tendinitis) in the third quarter. Washington chipped away at Milwaukees lead in the third quarter as Arizas 3 made pulled the Wizards to 78-74 heading to the fourth. The Wizards took an 85-84 lead on a driving dunk by Trevor Booker with 8:21 left and the teams traded the lead for the next several minutes. Drew called timeout during the first minute shortly after Washingtons Marcin Gortat was fouled going to the basket. "The first defensive play of the game we had a breakdown and that is just not acceptable and I felt it important to burn a timeout to let these guys know that were going to do it the right way," Drew said. "There cant be those type of breakdowns early in the game. It caught their attention." Washington forward Otto Porter Jr., the No. 3 overall pick in the June draft, made his NBA debut. Sidelined since September with a hip flexor, the former Georgetown star entered at the start the second quarter and played nearly 13 minutes, going 0 for 3 from the field with two rebounds. On the night the Wizards gained Porter, they played most of the game without Webster and the stretch run without Nene. As the first quarter ended, Webster missed a long 3. When he landed, he went to the floor. In obvious pain and holding his left ankle, he had to be assisted to the dressing room. The Wizards announced Webster had a sprained left ankle and he didnt return. The shot 14 for 21 in the first quarter and built a 42-33 lead early in the second. Washington closed to 42-40 on a jumper by Nene, but the Bucks went on a 15-1 run, capped by Nate Wolters baseline drive late in the quarter, and led 56-43 at halftime. "We came out and played like its a pickup game in the first half," Wittman said. "Thats where we lost the game." Middleton had 20 of his points on 7-for-11 shooting in the first half. NOTES: Milwaukee was without F Caron Butler (sore left knee) and C Zaza Pachulia (sprained right foot). ... C Kevin Seraphin (sore right knee) was out for the Wizards. ... Bucks G-F Giannis Antetokounmpo, the NBAs youngest player, turned 19 Thursday and scored six points. ... Wall and Wittman were whistled for technical fouls in the second quarter.

San Diego will actually be off next week and will have plenty of time to think about a humbling 37-0 loss at Miami on Sunday. Ryan Tannehill threw for 288 yards and three touchdowns in just three quarters of work for the Dolphins (5-3), who completely dominated en route to their third straight win. It was Miamis most efficient outing of the season and clearly San Diegos worst. The Chargers (5-4) have lost three in a row and were blanked for the first time since a 34-0 loss at Kansas City on Oct. 31, 1999. The Dolphins racked up 441 yards of offense and the defense came up with three interceptions of Philip Rivers, as Miami pitched its first shutout since a 21-0 win over New England on Dec. 10, 2006. I was confident going into the game that we were going to play well, said Dolphins coach Joe Philbin, who left the team for two days during the week to be with his father who died on Friday. It was a total team effort in all phases of the game. Tannehill completed 24-of-34 passes without an interception and was Miamis second-leading rusher with 47 yards on four carries. He left in favor of Matt Moore to start the fourth quarter. It was a great team win, said Tannehill. Now we need to build on it. Rivers exited the contest late in the third quarter after completing just 12- of-23 passes for 138 yards. He was also sacked three times and lost a fumble, as San Diego managed only 178 total yards and a mere 10 first downs. We didnt have a good day as a football team today, said Chargers coach Mike McCoy. Poor in all phases. We have to figure this thing out, as coaches and players, and turn this around. The Chargers actually looked good on their first series, holding the ball for half of the first quarter after the opening kickoff. A pair of long third-down conversions had San Diego deep in Miami territory, but a holding penalty negated a big run. The Chargers then nearly picked up a 3rd-and-17 when Keenan Allen came up a yard short at the Miami 22. Electing to try for the first down, Branden Oliver was stopped behind the line of scrimmage on fourth down. It was all Miami from there. The Dolphins went 77 yards with their first possession and took a 7-0 lead when Tannehill found Charles Clay in the back left corner of the end zone from six yards away on the only third down off the 10-play set.dddddddddddd Tannehill completed each of his six passes during the march, including a 24-yard connection with Clay early in the series. After a San Diego punt, Miami drove 61 yards for another touchdown. Tannehill keyed it with a 22-yard run to the 10-yard line and Lamar Miller scored from the two three plays later for 14-0 lead early in the second quarter. Rivers was then picked off by Reshad Jones on the first play after the kickoff and the Dolphins converted with a 26-yard field goal from Caleb Sturgis, who added a 25-yard boot on the next Miami series for a 20-0 advantage. He missed from 45 yards away as time expired in the first half. The Dolphins outgained the Chargers 282-118 in the first 30 minutes, and it was more of the same in the second half. Miami took the opening kickoff and drove 72 yards for a touchdown. A San Diego penalty for illegal use of hands gave the Dolphins a first down after they would have been forced to punt following a third-down sack. Tannehill took full advantage, capping the series with a 21-yard scoring strike to Rishard Matthews to make it 27-0. Brent Grimes intercepted Rivers on the next Chargers possession, leading to another short Sturgis field goal. Miami failed to convert another Grimes pick on the next San Diego series and punted for the first time, but Rivers was sacked and fumbled just three plays later. Jared Odrick recovered for the Dolphins at the San Diego 14 and Tannehill immediately took advantage with a touchdown pass to Jarvis Landry on the very next play for a 37-0 cushion. Rivers took a shot to the elbow on the sack and left the contest on the next series in favor of Kellen Clemens. Game Notes The Dolphins have won eight straight against the Chargers in Miami. San Diegos last win in South Florida was on Jan. 2, 1982, the epic 41-38 overtime victory in the divisional playoffs ... Miami posted its largest shutout margin since a 42-0 victory over Kansas City on Oct. 11, 1987 ... The Dolphins scored a touchdown on their opening possession for just the second time this season ...
