How does a five point lead vanish in a minute? Magic. The Orlando Magic rallied to tie the Milwaukee Bucks and then beat them in overtime in Florida Wednesday night 113-103. The Bucks squandered the lead by failing to inbound the ball in five seconds, Monta Ellis missed a pair of free throws, John Henson was called for goaltending and former Buck Tobias Harris knocked down a three point shot with 1.9 seconds left to tie the game. Harris was fouled by Marquis Daniels on the play. Harris missed the free throw which would have won the game in regulation. The Magic quickly built a lead in the extra session to win for only the 20th time this season. Harris finished with 30 points and 19 rebounds. Nikola Viscuvic also had a huge double-double with 30 points and 20 boards. Monta Ellis led the Bucks with 21 but shot just 7 for 27 from the floor. John Henson had a strong game with 17 points, a career high 25 rebounds and seven blocked shots. He got significant minutes because Larry Sanders took a hard fall to the floor and left with a back injury. Brandon Jennings never made it to halftime either with a sore achilles. Both players are listed as day to day. Milwaukee (37-41) failed to gain ground on Boston which lost to Brooklyn. They remain three games behind the Celtics for 7th in the East but with only four games left to go, it's almost a lock the Bucks will open the playoffs against the defending champion Miami Heat. The Bucks continue their four game road trip in Atlanta Friday night.
