TOM WITHERS AP Sports Writer Published:

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Brandon Jennings scored 24 points and made a big layup in overtime as the Milwaukee Bucks rallied for a 113-112 win Friday night over the Cleveland Cavaliers, who were without rookie guard Kyrie Irving and lost center Anderson Varejao in the third quarter with a sprained wrist.

Jennings added eight assists for the Bucks, who trailed by 10 late in the third period -- right after Milwaukee coach Scott Skiles was ejected.

Drew Gooden scored 19 points and made two free throws with 4.4 seconds left in OT for Milwaukee.

Antawn Jamison had a season-high 34 points but missed two free throws with 3.7 seconds to go in regulation that would have put Cleveland ahead.

Ramon Sessions added 16 assists in his second start in place of Irving, who missed his second straight game with a concussion.
