"We just came up short," Milwaukee coach Larry Drew said. "Finally just ran out of bodies." Milwaukee was trying for its first two-game winning streak of the season after Mondays thrilling win over New York. Brandon Knights three-pointer with 1.4 seconds left gave the Bucks the win, and they brought the momentum into Wednesdays game. "We had it. We were pretty high to start the game and we battled well," Sanders said. "They just made some good plays down the stretch to get them over the hump. They were real aggressive attacking the basket and it worked in their favour." Even with the short bench, Milwaukee stayed right with Denver for much of the game. Sanders tipped in a missed shot to give the Bucks a 57-53 lead early in the third quarter. The Nuggets then buckled down. Five straight points by Lawson sparked a 14-3 run that lifted Denver to a seven-point lead. Kenneth Faried and J.J. Hickson combined for the Nuggets next 10 points as the lead grew to 77-65 midway through the third. Hickson finished with 19 points and 10 rebounds. Foye hit a three-pointer and a pair of free throws to give the Nuggets an 82-70 after three. Quincy Miller scored five quick points at the start the fourth, helping increase the lead to 18. Milwaukee went on a 17-5 run to get within 99-96 with 2:13 remaining but Chandler scored four straight to make a seven-point game with 1:28 left. Chandlers basket that made it 103-96 bounced off the front of the rim and off the top of the backboard before falling in. "I just shot it short," he said. "I thought when I released it I was good, it was just short." Milwaukee couldnt answer the late run. "You figure a team like that would give up, but give them credit, they kept fighting and made it a game," Chandler said. NOTES: Foye had a career-high four blocked shots. ...

Bradley was upset that Gantar disallowed what would have been a go-ahead goal by Gilberto in the 90th minute of a 1-1 tie against Chicago on Sept. 13. "Its not the first time weve had this guy this year. And what can you say? Hes just not good enough," Bradley said after the game. MLS has since acknowledged the call was wrong. "That referee did not get it right in that game, and we shouldnt be ashamed of saying that," commissioner Don Garber said. "I feel for Toronto FC." The league did not say Tuesday how much money the U.S. national team star was fined. Bradley said after the game in Chicago that Canadian officials are tough on Canadian MLS teams to avoid appearing biased. "They continue to assign Canadian referees when an Ameerican team is playing a Canadian team. Sergio Aguero Jersey. Because its obvious that now these guys are going to make a conscious effort to show theyre not being biased one way or another," he said. "I cant understand why youd continue to do that." Bradley also criticized the level of refereeing in MLS in general. "Consistently they put referees out there who are in over their heads," he said. "Its a shame, because they ruin games." Braley escaped a fine after criticizing referee Ted Unkel following Torontos 2-1 home loss to Sporting Kansas City on July 26. "Its by no means an excuse, it was the same for both teams, but the referee was absolutely awful," Bradley said after that game. "The people at the MLS (head) office in New York, when they talk about wanting to improve the league, the first thing that needs to be improved is the refereeing, bottom line." Then manager Ryan Nelsen also criticized Unkel and was fined by the league.
