Game Story

CHARLOTTE, North Carolina (Ticker) -- Milwaukee Bucks guard Sam Cassell was both unselfish and unhappy.

Cassell had a career-high 19 assists but a wide-open Glenn Robinson failed to convert his pass into a go-ahead 3-pointer, allowing the Charlotte Hornets to escape with a 109-105 victory over the Bucks.

Often chided for shooting too much as a point guard, Cassell has answered critics by averaging 8.8 assists per game this season, third in the NBA. Against Charlotte, he shot only seven times, preferring to set up teammates like Robinson, who scored a season-high 36 points on 15-of-26 shooting.

The Bucks trailed 105-103 with just over a minute to play when Cassell shot an airball on a 3-pointer. He atoned with a steal at the other end, then drew Anthony Mason to him at the top of the circle before whipping a pass to Robinson, who had made four of his first five 3-pointers.

But Robinson's shot bounced in and out and Cassell fouled out as he stopped the clock. David Wesley's two free throws with 10.5 seconds remaining gave Charlotte a four-point lead and it was a two-possession game thereafter.

Cassell had seven points, two steals and eight turnovers. He surpassed his previous high of 18 assists against Dallas on December 5. He fell one shy of the highest total in the NBA this season, established by Denver's Nick Van Exel on November 8 against Atlanta.

Derrick Coleman scored a season-high 27 points for the Hornets, who had seven players in double figures and have won two in a row following a three-game losing streak.

A layup by Anthony Mason gave the Hornets the lead for good at 78-76 with five minutes left in the third quarter. A basket and free throw by Coleman closed the period and gave Charlotte a 90-84 lead.

The Bucks hung tough and closed to 103-102 on Robinson's basket with 2:45 remaining. Charlotte's Bobby Phills answered with a jumper before Cassell made 1-of-2 from the line with 1:40 to go.

Elden Campbell had 17 points and 11 rebounds, Phills scored 13 points and Wesley 12 for the Hornets, who shot 54 percent (37-of-69) from the field and made 31-of-40 free throws. Brad Miller, Anthony Mason and rookie Baron Davis scored 10 points each.

Ray Allen scored 28 points and Tim Thomas added 19 for the Bucks, who shot 48 percent (43-of-89) and made just 11-of-13 from the line.

Robinson scored 20 points and Allen 19 in the first half but Charlotte's balance provided a 62-59 lead. Cassell handed out 11 assists in the first 24 minutes.
