ROCHESTER, Mich. (AP) — DeAndre Abram scored 18 points that included two late free throws to help Milwaukee hold off Oakland for a 67-64 victory on Thursday night.

Abram made two free throws and Norris missed a 3-pointer in the final seconds.

Abram was 5-of-13 shooting. Darius Roy added 14 points and Wil Sessoms had 13 for Milwaukee. Abram and Roy made six of the Panthers’ nine 3-pointers.

Jaevin Cumberland made five 3-pointers and scored 19 points to lead Oakland. Norris finished with nine points and seven assists.

Cumberland tied the game at 51 with 8:30 remaining, but the Grizzlies then missed their last 10 of 12 field goals.
