MILWAUKEE -- Rashad Vaughns teammates have been urging him to take more shots. He finally listened.Vaughn scored a career-high 22 points, 10 more than his previous best, and hit six 3-pointers in 12 attempts to lead the Milwaukee Bucks past the Brooklyn Nets 110-108 on Saturday night. He connected on three 3s in the fourth quarter with the game on the line.My teammates were giving me a lot of confidence, Vaughn said. I was feeling it tonight. There were a couple times I didnt shoot and they got on me.Vaughn, the Bucks first-round draft pick last season, made just 29 percent of his 3-point attempts during his rookie campaign.Hes a threat, Bucks coach Jason Kidd said.Despite Vaughns hot long-range shooting, the game wasnt decided until John Hensons buzzer-beating tip-in of Jabari Parkers missed layup, which gave the Bucks their first win of the season.Bojan Bogdanovic nailed a 3-pointer to tie the score with 11.6 seconds remaining, setting up Hensons heroics.Their strength is getting to the paint but (Vaughn) was the X factor, Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said. I give him credit. He came in and hit some big shots.Giannis Antetokounmpo added 21 points and 11 rebounds for Milwaukee. He scored all of his points in the paint, including seven dunks.Bogdanovics 26 points led the Nets, who made just 11 of 35 3-point attempts.The Nets played without oft-injured starting center Brook Lopez, who rested after logging 26 minutes and scoring 25 points on Friday night in a home win over Indiana.(Brook) is our best player. We missed him a lot tonight, Bogdanovic said.TIP INSNets: The team plans to closely monitor Lopez, who has had three surgeries on his right foot. This doesnt mean that he wont play back-to-backs the rest of the year, Atkinson said. We will look at what is best for him and the team. We want peak performance for the long term. . G Greivis Vasquez left the game in the first half with a sore right ankle and didnt return.Bucks: After missing the season opener with a sprained left ankle, Tony Snell made his first appearance with the Bucks since being acquired in an Oct. 17 trade that sent Michael Carter-Williams to Chicago. We thought thatd be the best thing, to get him in the flow of things right of the bat instead of sitting and waiting around, Kidd said.MORE TIMEThe Bucks exercised the third-year contract option on Vaughn. The 20-year-old appeared in 70 games during his rookie season and averaged 3.1 points. This is a case where wed love for him to make shots every time he takes the floor but it just doesnt happen right away, Kidd said.SCARY SITUATIONThe Nets have lost 14 straight games on the road and five in a row to Milwaukee. They havent been over .500 since they were 4-3 on Nov. 12, 2014.FAMILIAR FACESean Kilpatrick, who was on the Bucks summer league roster in 2015, turned in another solid effort for the Nets, tallying 15 points in about 24 minutes. He credited the Bucks coaching staff with improving his overall game. They wanted to be me aggressive and just continue to keep playing within the flow of the game, Kilpatrick said. Coach Kidd, he actually believed in me. The fact that he believes in his players now is something that is helping them.UP NEXTNets: On Monday, they host Chicago and key newcomers Dwyane Wade and Rajon Rondo.Bucks: At Detroit on Sunday.

LOS ANGELES -- Travis Konecny and Ivan Provorov already looked comfortable with the Philadelphia Flyers from the first moments of their NHL debuts.The Flyers all made themselves quite comfortable at Staples Center in an impressive season opener.Boyd Gordon and Sean Couturier scored 48 seconds apart to kick off a four-goal second period in Philadelphias 4-2 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Friday night.Couturier got two goals, Mark Streit also scored and Michal Neuvirth made 23 saves as the Flyers took a 4-0 lead and cruised to a win in their season opener for the first time since 2011.But even after running over the two-time Stanley Cup champion Kings, the Flyers veterans mostly wanted to talk about 19-year-old rookies Konecny and Provorov, two first-round draft picks from 2015 who cracked the Philadelphia roster in training camp.Its awesome having them here, defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere said. They bring an element I dont think we necessarily had last year. Theyve got speed, and they can make plays.Konecny had two assists, setting up both of Couturiers goals with nifty plays. Provorov added another assist on Streits goal.I can play better, and Ill play better (Saturday), Provorov said. You expect the best. Its the best league in the world. (Los Angeles) came out hard. We weathered the storm and started to play our game.Drew Doughty and Brayden McNabb scored in the home opener for the Kings, whose 50th anniversary season is off to an 0-2 start after a strong first period led to a dismal second against Philadelphia.We were turning over pucks, giving odd-man rushes and had a few bad changes, said Doughty, last seasons Norris Trophy winner. It was one of the worst periods we have played as a team in a long time.Jeff Zatkoff made his home debut with 26 saves in his first game as the Kings presumptive starter in the absence of Jonathan Quick, the Vezina Trophy finalist. Quick is out for several weeks with a groin injury, but Zatkoff wasnt the Kinngs biggest problem while his teammates repeatedly left him without help through poor decisions.dddddddddddd(Quick) is arguably the best goalie in the NHL, but we cant do anything about it, Los Angeles captain Anze Kopitar said. We have to play hard and play with what we have.The Kings opener went downhill from the pregame ceremony to kick off their landmark 50th anniversary season. The Flyers, who entered the NHL alongside the Kings in the leagues Second Six expansion, also celebrate their 50th this year.Los Angeles welcomed back several members of its original team and other stars from the franchises founding days. Every former player with a number retired in the Staples Center rafters made an appearance, including Wayne Gretzky.The Flyers couldnt put a shot on Zatkoff until Streits tame try 13 minutes into the first period, but Gordon started the scoring for his new team early in the second after the Kings made a poor change. Couturier then scored consecutive goals 7:21 apart.Streit capped the barrage when the Swiss defenseman banked a shot off the back of Zatkoffs head.Doughty finally snapped the Kings 97 1/2-minute scoreless drought late in the second, and McNabb scored early in the third.Game notes Flyers D Shayne Gostisbehere was cut on the right cheek by Kings F Kyle Cliffords skate early in the first period, but stayed in the game. I was just thankful it wasnt worse, said Gostisbehere, who didnt need stitches. Ill take this any day over what could have happened. ... Kings F Tanner Pearson finished his two-game suspension for a preseason hit on Edmontons Brandon Davidson. ... The Kings sold out their 173rd consecutive regular-season home game.UP NEXTFlyers: A three-game road trip continues Saturday night at Arizona.Kings: Theyve got the weekend off before they open a two-game road trip at Minnesota on Tuesday.
