Game Story

SALT LAKE CITY (Ticker) -- When the smoke cleared, All-Star Glenn Robinson made sure one streak was put to rest while another lived on.

Robinson drilled a 3-pointer as time expired, leading the Milwaukee Bucks to their first win in Utah in nearly 12 years, a 102-99 victory over the Jazz, whose five-game losing streak is their longest in nearly six years.

With 2.6 seconds to play, Robinson took an inbounds pass on the left side from Vinny Del Negro, took one dribble toward the basket and stepped back behind the arc for the buzzer-beating shot.

"I caught the ball with 2.6 seconds -- 2.6 seconds is not a lot of time, so I just had to take one dribble and shoot the ball," Robinson said. "Worse come to worse, we would have gone to overtime, but we didn't want to go into overtime with Utah -- they're a pretty smart team. You want to get out of here early."

"Our guys have done a really good job of executing in last-second situations," Bucks coach George Karl said. "We wanted to get Glenn the ball and get Sam (Cassell) and Ray (Allen) to stretch out the defenders. There's not many guys who can make that shot."

John Stockton tied the game moments earlier when he drove down the lane and converted a right-handed layup in traffic, setting up the game's final play.

Robinson scored 30 points for the Bucks, who had lost 10 in a row in Utah dating to March 26, 1988. The Jazz matched their longest skid since March 15-23, 1994.

"When you start losing games, sometimes you don't think you can win down the stretch," said Utah forward Karl Malone, who had 28 points and 10 rebounds. "I can't recall being in this position too many times. You have to fight your way out of it, no one is going to give you anything. In situations like this, you just rally together as a team and in the long run something positive will come out of it."

The Bucks completed a 3-2 road trip that featured two wins at the buzzer. Tim Thomas made a jumper at the horn to defeat Seattle five days ago.

The game featured 18 ties and 23 lead changes. Milwaukee's largest lead was eight points and Utah never led by more than five.

Allen, also an All-Star, was a major factor, scoring 36 points on 12-of-18 shooting and grabbing eight rebounds.

"This shows us whether it's Utah, Portland or Toronto -- we can play with anybody," Allen said. "We came in and beat them on their home court."

Bryon Russell's 3-point play gave the Jazz a 95-92 lead with 1:40 remaining. But Robinson drained a 13-footer and after Greg Ostertag was unable to convert a miss by Russell, he hit another from the same spot, forging a 96-95 lead with 54 seconds left.

Malone was fouled on the next possession and hit two free throws to give the Jazz their last lead at 97-96 with 43 seconds to go.

Allen put the Bucks back on top with two free throws and after Thomas blocked Stockton's jumper, he hit 1-of-2 from the line to extend the lead to 99-97 with 8.5 seconds remaining.

"When you make mistakes, don't rebound the ball like you're supposed to and don't get up and guard people, you let ballgames slip away," Jazz coach Jerry Sloan said. "We just have to fight through it, that's all I've ever known."

Cassell ended with only nine points after notching seven in the first quarter, but dished out 10 assists. Ervin Johnson grabbed 11 rebounds and Scott Williams added eight along with 10 points for Milwaukee, which shot 47 percent (37-of-79) from the floor.

Stockton had 18 points and seven assists, Russell scored 14 points and Jeff Hornacek added 12 for Utah, who shot 45 percent and held a 46-36 rebounding edge.
