MILWAUKEE -

Deron Williams scored 23 points and Nets escaped with a 97-94 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night after Monta Ellis missed on a chance to tie the game with three foul shots in the final seconds.

The Bucks got to within 96-94 with 6 seconds left on a pair of baskets by Brandon Jennings.

Gerald Wallace inbounded to Williams, but Jennings was draped over his right side.

The contact shook the ball loose and it appeared to hit Williams' foot before rolling out of bounds.

After review, the Nets had possession. Williams was fouled and made one of two free throws to make it 97-94 with 3.4 seconds left.

Williams then fouled Ellis on a hurried 3. Ellis missed the first two shots, and intentionally missed the third.
