GAME RECAP

Michael Curry went from goat to hero when he followed in Ray Allen's miss with 5.6 seconds to play as the Milwaukee Bucks extended their winning streak to a season-high four games with a 115-112 overtime victory over the New York Knicks.

With the score tied 108-108 with 58 seconds left in overtime, Curry fouled Allan Houston as he made a layup. After Houston sank the free throw to give New York a three-point lead, Glenn Robinson answered with a three-point play for Milwaukee.

A free throw by Chris Mills gave the Knicks a 112-111 lead and Robinson missed the go-ahead jumper with seven seconds left. Allen, who sent the game to overtime with a 30-footer in the final seconds of regulation, grabbed the offensive rebound but barely drew glass. Curry, a defensive specialist, crashed the boards and easily put back the miss for the winning basket.

"Ray made an excellent play, saving it," said Curry. "He got high in the air and got a good rebound, and they left me open to go double him, so I was wide open. When Ray put it back up I was going to be there just in case it came off, maybe for a tip-in. But it came straight off the backboard and I was able to lay it straight in."

"He finally made a good basket on me," added Curry of Houston's three-point play. "He's a good offensive player and you can't stop him every time, but I feel like I'm a good defensive player. I'm going to make you take tough shots. So he made one that play. I was confident we could answer on the other end."

A long pass from Houston sailed over the head of John Starks and Terrell Brandon added two free throws with less than a second to go.

"It was a good shot, he got a good look," said Bucks coach Chris Ford. "Ray had the first crack at it and Michael Curry was there to put it back in. We got lucky."

John Starks scored 32 points, including a team-record nine three-pointers, for the Knicks, who have lost three in a row following their own season-high four-game winning streak. Starks made all six of his three-pointers in the second quarter -- one shy of the NBA record -- but sank just one after the third quarter.

The Knicks led 96-95 with two minutes to go in regulation when Robinson, who finished with 39 points, sank two free throws to give Milwaukee the lead. Robinson finished three shy of his season high, set January 2nd against Chicago.

After a couple of turnovers on the offensive end, Charlie Ward gave the Knicks the lead with a solid defensive play. With 59 seconds left, Tyrone Hill threw a lazy inbounds pass and Ward picked it off and took it in for an uncontested layup.

Milwaukee missed a long three-pointer and Brandon came up short on a follow attempt. Houston got the rebound and was fouled. After Houston made both free throws with 11 seconds left to give New York a 100-97 lead, Allen calmly sank a bomb from well outside the arc to knot the contest. Starks raced down court with a chance to win the game but came up short on his runner at the buzzer.

"This is a tough loss," said Starks. "It was a game that was very winnable for us. I'm going to have to shoulder this myself. Because I gave up a three at the end of regulation (to Allen). I should know better than that, I have to get up on the man and at least contest the shot. It was deep, but when the game's on the line you can't give up anything."

The teams swapped baskets over the first 2:08 of overtime before Mills made a pair from the line for a 108-106 lead. Brandon answered with a long jumper from the corner with 78 seconds to play.

Allen scored 26 points and Brandon added 22 for Milwaukee, which has won seven of its last 10 and reached the .500 mark for the first time since December 13th, when it was 11-11.

"No I don't think we should be happy," replied Brandon when asked if felt a sense of achievement over reaching .500. "There's a lot of games we should have won, so we're just of crawling back trying to get back to respectability. But no, we're not happy about being at .500."

New York's Larry Johnson, who was matched up against Robinson, scored 13 points before being ejected in the third quarter. The Knicks already were shorthanded with guard Chris Childs unavailable due to a concussion.

Houston scored a season-high 28 points for New York, which lost three straight for the first time since November 20th-24th, 1996. The Knicks also have lost three straight to Milwaukee.

"No game is perfect," said Knicks coach Jeff van Gundy. "You're going to have opportunities to make mistakes throughout a game. The bottom line is, when you get to the end of a game you've got to be good."
