Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- One night after thoroughly embarrassing themselves, the Milwaukee Bucks kept their playoff hopes alive by squeezing past one of the NBA's laughingstocks.

Sam Cassell scored 31 points and Ray Allen added 27 as the Bucks rebounded from their worst loss of the season with a 117-113 triumph over the floundering Golden State Warriors.

The Bucks suffered a disheartening 113-79 thumping at Portland on Saturday but pulled within two games of idle Orlando for the final Eastern Conference playoff spot by holding off the pesky Warriors.

"It was imperative. If we lost this game tonight, it would have really put us in a difficult position," Milwaukee coach George Karl said. "Now we have a little bit of a schedule where if we can keep winning, things will be exciting and interesting. It will be OK."

Cassell made 8-of-17 shots and 15-of-16 from the line, including several clutch free throws down the stretch. Allen, who scored 13 points on 4-of-13 shooting against the Trail Blazers, buried 10-of-19 from the field, including 3-of-4 from beyond the arc.

"(A loss) would have put a lot of damage on our playoff hopes," Cassell said. "A lot of damage. Every win we get is important. We can't afford to slip up anymore. This Golden State team came to Milwaukee and beat us. That's a win I chalked up in my schedule. That just goes to show you have to play the game."

"If we want to start to do something special, we've got to start with a team we feel we should beat," Allen said. "So in other words, if we didn't win this, we'd be lying to ourselves of wanting to make it to the playoffs and beating the teams we should beat because now is the time to do it."

Glenn Robinson and Tim Thomas added 16 points apiece for Milwaukee, which has won only nine of 26 games during its postseason push.

"We are just happy with the win," Robinson said. "It doesn't matter how we do it. We just wanted to come out with the `W'. We held on and got the win."

Larry Hughes scored 32 points to go with seven rebounds and six assists for Golden State, which has lost seven straight at home and 17 of 18 overall. The Warriors are just 2 1/2 games ahead of the league-worst Los Angeles Clippers.

"It's tough when you lose," Hughes said. "We were hanging in the the whole way. There were just a couple of rebounds that we didn't get and we couldn't turn the game around."

"Milwaukee is playing for a playoff spot," Golden State coach Garry St. Jean said. "We're playing for pride. I think the number one thing for us is for us to have a mental focus in terms of how you want to play the game. And in terms of your effort level."

Darvin Ham scored 13 points for Milwaukee, which shot 52 percent (41-of-79) but yielded 23 points off turnovers.

Cassell made two free throws to give the Bucks a comfortable 90-76 cushion with 1:39 remaining in the third quarter. But Caffey and Hughes each hit two free throws and Sam Jacobsen's 15-footer cut the margin to 90-82 entering the final period.

Hughes opened the fourth quarter with a layup, shaving the margin to six points, but Ham hit two free throws and Scott Williams was good from 15 feet to make it 95-84 with 10:33 to play.

The Warriors responded with a 16-7 run, closing to 102-100 with 4:19 left on Mookie Blaylock's 26-footer from the left sideline. Caffey's layup got Golden State within 104-103 with 3:31 left before Cassell drained a 17-footer and Robinson added a follow shot to make it a five-point lead.

Donyell Marshall answered with a 3-pointer, but Allen was good from 22 feet and Cassell hit a pair from the line to make it 112-106 with 1:42 left.

However, the Warriors again threatened. Caffey made two free throws and Tony Farmer's tip-in cut the deficit to two with 55 seconds remaining.

Ervin Johnson and Cassell combined to knock down four free throws before Blaylock hit another 3-pointer with 27 seconds left, pulling Golden State within 116-113. But Cassell made 1-of-2 free throws to seal the win.

Blaylock scored 24 points, Caffey 19 and Marshall added 14 for the Warriors, who shot 43.5 percent (37-of-85) and committed 17 turnovers.

"There's no such thing (as a moral victory) in this game," Caffey said. "To be honest, if we don't get the victory, it's a loss anyway you look at it. I think there was a motivation to keep those guys out of the playoff run. We knew they got blown out last night against Portland. It's always a motivation to keep another team out of the playoffs."
