Bruce Bennett/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Joe Johnson kept hitting big shots for the Brooklyn Nets.

Johnson hit a game-tying three to send the game to overtime, then hit the winner at the buzzer to send the Nets to a 113-111 win over the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday.

Brandon Jennings had a chance to give the Bucks (26-26) a lead with 15 seconds left in overtime, but after his miss and a timeout, Johnson sunk the foul-line jumper to set off a celebration in the Barclays Center.

“It’s an unbelievable feeling,” Johnson said. “Regardless of the situation, whether it’s regular season or playoffs, it’s always a great feeling. And, just to see everybody kind of explode with excitement is probably the best feeling.”

Brooklyn (32-22) had lost 13 straight games to the Bucks dating back to 2009. 

Deron Williams added 19 points for the Nets.
