Game Story

SAN ANTONIO (Ticker) -- It took nine years and a day, but the Milwaukee Bucks finally won in San Antonio.

Sam Cassell and Glenn Robinson led the Bucks to their first road win over the San Antonio Spurs since December 22, 1990, completing a season sweep of the world champions with a 94-91 victory.

Cassell buried half of his 16 shots and hit 10-of-13 free throws for 27 points. The crafty point guard scored 14 straight points for the Bucks spanning the third and fourth quarters to put them ahead to stay, 77-70, with 11:25 to play.

Robinson was 10-of-16 from the field and helped hold off the Spurs by burying a jumper with 1:12 remaining that made it 94-89.

"I really had it going tonight," Robinson said. "It feels good to shoot the ball that well. We all made some big shots late in the game and that is what gave us the momentum to come out with a win."

"These guys always seem to respond well after playing poorly, and we played poorly in Sacramento," Milwaukee coach George Karl added, referring to Monday's 108-95 loss to the Kings. "Glenn Robinson had a great matchup most of the night and then when he got hot he's tough to contain when that happens. Then Sam Cassell got his thing going and that allowed us to hold onto our lead."

The Bucks snapped a seven-game losing streak in San Antonio and completed their first season sweep of the Spurs since 1985-86. Milwaukee defeated San Antonio at home, 99-88, on November 18.

Tim Duncan had 18 points and 15 rebounds for the Spurs, who entered the contest with the NBA's best home record but suffered their second loss in 14 games at the Alamodome.

San Antonio had a chance to tie in the closing moments but Jaren Jackson's potential tying 3-pointer bounced off the side of the backboard at the buzzer.

"I thought the guys executed great," San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich said. "We got what we wanted, the shots didn't go down. The effort was great. We played our hearts out and ended up on the short end of the stick."

A game that featured 12 lead changes and eight ties swung in Milwaukee's favor when Cassell took over in the third period. He snapped a 57-57 tie and put the Suns ahead for good with a short jumper with 4:51 left in the quarter.

Cassell made seven free throws, a jumper and a 3-pointer to give the Bucks a 75-68 lead entering the fourth quarter and Milwaukee appeared to have matters at hand with a 90-82 lead with 4:13 to play.

But Mario Elie and Duncan made back-to-back jumpers to set up a tight finish.

After Robinson's jumper gave Milwaukee a five-point cushion with 72 seconds remaining, David Robinson scored on a follow shot to cut the deficit to 94-91.

Milwaukee turned over the ball on a shot-clock violation with nine seconds remaining and Jackson had two chances to tie but missed a pair of 25-footers as time expired.

"I tried to get them off before the defender got to me," he said. "I was falling back on my heels on the second one. I probably rushed them both. They were both tough shots."

Ray Allen scored 14 points and Ervin Johnson had nine and 14 rebounds for the Bucks, who shot 42 percent (34-of-81) and committed 13 turnovers.

"I hope we can keep this up and play with this much intensity when we are playing the teams we are supposed to beat," Allen said. "This is the best I have seen us play on both ends of the court this year."

Avery Johnson had 16 points and 10 assists and Elie added 13 points off the bench for the Spurs, who had seven players score in double figures. San Antonio shot 43 percent (34-of-80) and held a 44-43 advantage on the boards.

"We should beat teams like that," Elie said. "We have been outhustled on the boards in the last couple of games. We are frustrated. We just need to rest tomorrow and then get back to the drawing board."
