MILWAUKEE (AP) — Khris Middleton broke a tie with a jumper with 0.5 seconds left in overtime and had 27 points to help the Milwaukee Bucks beat the Miami Heat 109-107 Saturday in Game 1 of the first-round playoff series.

Middleton was closely guarded by Duncan Robinson on the 19-footer. Miami's Goran Dragic had tied it with a corner 3-pointer with 20.6 seconds left in OT.

After Middleton's shot, Jrue Holiday blocked a 3-point attempt from Jimmy Butler as the buzzer sounded.

Game 2 is Monday night in Milwaukee.

Miami beat Milwaukee 4-1 in the second round last year and went on to reach the NBA Finals.
