BROOKLYN: Guard Joe Johnson hit the game-winner at the buzzer in overtime to lift the Brooklyn Nets to a 113-111 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday.

Johnson carried the Nets on his back down the stretch at the Barclays Center arena by nailing a three-point shot near the end of regulation to send the game into overtime.

He shot 10-of-18 from the field and finished with 24 points for Brooklyn who snapped a 13-game losing streak to the Bucks.

Point guard Deron Williams had 19 points with nine assists as the Nets emerged from the National Basketball Association all-star break to earn their third-straight win.

 Andray Blatche and CJ Watson came off the bench to score 14 and 11 points respectively for the Nets in front of a crowd of 17,334.

This was Williams first game back after missing two straight with an ankle injury. He has been one of the Nets top scorers this season, averaging 16.7 points per game heading into Tuesday’s contest.
