MILWAUKEE - With the game on the line, Brandon Knight thought back to his boyhood dreams.Knight converted a three-point play with 1.1 seconds remaining Saturday night to rally the Milwaukee Bucks to a 93-92 victory over Memphis, handing the Grizzlies their first loss of the season in seven games.Its what you dream about as a kid, being able to shoot that game-winning free throw, and it happened tonight, Knight said. I was able to knock it down and get a win for our team.Zach Randolphs layup put Memphis ahead 91-90 with 1:29 remaining. With 15.6 seconds left, Bucks centre Larry Sanders had his shot from underneath the basket blocked by Marc Gasol, with the ball initially going out of bounds to Milwaukee. After an officials review, however, the ball was awarded to Memphis.Mike Conley was fouled with 8 seconds remaining, but missed the first free throw and made the second to make it 92-90.On the ensuing possession, Knight went to work from the top of the lane and scored on a drive down the left side, drawing a foul from Courtney Lee. Knight then hit the winning free throw.Lees long jumper at the buzzer from beyond the top of the key was off the mark.Knights decisive move arose out of necessity because Memphis smothered the primary options on the play.We drew up a couple options, Knight said. The main thing was looking for O.J. (Mayo) coming off the second side, misdirection, (Jared) Dudley coming across the first side and they did a great job covering it, so from that point I just went to playing basketball.Giannis Antetokounmpo took advantage of his quickness against Randolph and took the ball to the basket, scoring 12 of his career-high 18 points in the fourth quarter. Knight added 14 and rookie Jabari Parker had 13.It was tough. Hes a lot stronger than me, bigger than me, Antetokounmpo said. He was a mismatch for me on the defensive end, but I was a mismatch for him on the offensive end because hes bigger than me and much slower. And, Im faster than him so I can drive the ball.Randolph had 22 points and 14 rebounds, and Gasol scored 18 for Memphis (6-1), which was off to the best start in franchise history. The loss left Golden State (5-0) as the only unbeaten team in the NBA.No positives. Not with this game, Randolph said. Giving up a three-point play when theyre down two; a lot of mental mistakes. We can get better. We just have to keep pushing, stick together and get ready for the next one.The Bucks, who trailed 72-66 after three quarters, scored the first seven points of the fourth and took a 73-72 lead on two free throws by Antetokounmpo.Antetokounmpo scored on a drive to put the Bucks up 90-89 with 2:23 remaining, but failed to convert a three-point play when he missed the free throw. Randolphs layup put Memphis back on top 91-90 with 1:29 left.Were trying as a team to play hard every night and put ourselves in a position to win, first-year Bucks coach Jason Kidd said. Were learning late-game execution. Sometimes the ball goes in, sometimes it doesnt and thats just part of basketball. But tonights another step forward of getting that stop when we needed to.The Grizzlies once again were hampered by limited production from their bench. Memphis entered the game last in the NBA with 19.3 points per game from its reserves, while Milwaukee was second at 45.3 points off the bench.Led by Antetokounmpo, the Bucks backups contributed 46 points, while the Grizzlies got just 27 off the bench.They beat us to too many basketballs, Memphis coach Dave Joerger said. We had to play our guys big minutes last night and we played them big minutes tonight. We missed some shots. We just didnt get enough from other places.___TIP-INSGrizzlies: Joerger realizes his teams strong start could have playoff implications far down the road. We are in the West, so every game matters whether its in November or March, Joerger said before the game. We learned that last year, having to come from behind throughout the course of the season and make up ground.Bucks: Kidd continued to tinker with his starting lineup, reinserting Dudley, who had started the first five games before coming off the bench Friday in a 98-95 loss at Detroit. Kendall Marshall, who started against the Pistons, did not play.UP NEXTGrizzlies: Tuesday night vs. Los Angeles Lakers.Bucks: Tuesday night vs. Oklahoma City.STREAK SNAPPEDThe Bucks ended a seven-game skid against Memphis dating to March 28, 2010, when Milwaukee posted a 108-103 overtime win at home.WESTERN SUCCESSThe game was the first this season for the Bucks against a Western Conference opponent.

White still believes the UFC cant be solely in charge of eliminating steroid users from its bouts, saying government athletic commissions should close the TRT loophole permanently. "The doctors came out and said they want to ban it? Well, thats the answer," White told The Associated Press on Monday. "Its legal in the sport. The commissions let you do it. You get an exemption, and you have to be monitored and all the stuff thats going on, but if theyre going to do away with it? There you go. Its a problem solved." The ARP is an association of ringside doctors involved in boxing and MMA -- the so-called combat sports. The organizations consensus statement calls for the elimination of therapeutic use exemptions for testosterone, a thorny issue in MMA circles for years. "Steroid use of any type, including unmerited testosterone, significantly increases the safety and health risk to combat sports athletes and their opponents," the ARPs statement said. "TRT in a combat sports athlete may also create an unfair advantage contradictory to the integrity of sport." Several UFC fighters in recent years have been given exemptions by athletic commissions to use synthetic testosterone before their bouts, including veteran stars Chael Sonnen, Dan Henderson, Vitor Belfort and Frank Mir. The exemptions were granted ostensibly for medical reasons, including a supposed deficiency in naturally occurring testosterone caused by hypogonadism -- a diminished function of the gonads. Well before the ARP added its influential voice to the chorus against TRT, many medical professionals have questioned the legitimacy of such exemptions, particularly for professional cage fighters. "The incidence of hypogonadism requiring the use of testosterone replacement therapy in professional athletes is extraordinarily rare," the ARPs statement said. "Accordingly, the use of an anabolic steroid such as testosterone in a professional boxer or mixed martial artist is rarely justified." White knows the UFCs next showdown with TRT use is imminent, and he hopes the Nevada State Athletic Commission wont grant an exemption to Belfort, who is scheduled to fight Chris Weidman for the middleweight tittle in Las Vegas later this year.dddddddddddd. The 36-year-old Belfort, who failed a steroid test in Nevada several years ago, has improbably revitalized his career with three spectacular stoppage victories in his native Brazil. Belfort knocked out the 43-year-old Henderson with a head kick in the first round last November in Goiania, Brazil, earning a title shot. Belfort has been open about his TRT use for the past year, while Henderson has acknowledged it for several years. "He drives me crazy, and me and Vitor were not on good terms a few months ago," White said. "Just because this whole TRT thing, I think, is unfair, and I said were going to test the living (daylights) out of him (during training). And we have, and he has complied, and he has been within the limits hes supposed to have." Although the UFC tests its fighters when they sign contracts and adds additional in-house testing before certain fights, White said hes wary of completely stepping in front of government regulators on the issue. When the UFC stages fight cards in areas with no appropriate athletic commission, the promotion acts as its own regulator. "We couldnt be more proactive," White said. "Drugs hurt us. Hurts our sport. Let alone our perception in the media and everything -- it destroys great athletes. Drugs destroy great athletes, because once you start on them, you can never get off them. Youre on them for the rest of your career." Other prominent fighters believe the UFC should be doing more. Georges St. Pierre, the UFCs longtime welterweight champion before stepping away from the sport late last year, re-ignited the public discussion of drug testing in MMA earlier this month with criticism of the UFCs current testing policies, calling them ineffective and beatable. St. Pierre believes performance-enhancing drugs are still a major problem in MMA. Tim Kennedy, a rising UFC middleweight and former Army Green Beret, hailed Mondays statement from the ARP in a post on his Twitter account: "So the Association for Ringside Physicians supports elimination of TRT in MMA, the fighters want it gone. Only the cheaters want to keep it." UFC middleweight Bubba McDaniel echoed Kennedys sentiments in a post on his Facebook fan page: "If you have abused Steroids so long that you need TRT to remain normal. Your time is up because youve CHEATED long enough!!" ' ' '
