Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- Ray Allen's 15-footer over Lucious Harris at the buzzer gave the Milwaukee Bucks an 80-78 victory over the New Jersey Nets.

The Bucks scored just 10 points in the final period, blowing a 28-point third-quarter lead. Nets guard Stephon Marbury hit a 3-pointer to tie the game at 78-78 with 5.6 seconds to play.

But off the inbound pass, Allen, who had made just 4-of-15 shots to that point, took Harris 1-on-1 and buried the jumper shot from the right wing at the horn. He finished with 16 points.

"The inbound was designed for Ray," teammate Glenn Robinson said. "And he had the option of going to me on the post, but five seconds is not a lot of time for a post up play so Ray just took it and made a great shot."

"Ray hit a big shot over me," Harris said. "I was right there with a hand in his face. He did what he was supposed to do. I don't think I could have guarded him any better than I did on that play."

The Nets went on a 27-4 run to start the fourth quarter and tied the game at 74-74 on Vladimir Stepania's hook shot with 1:50 to play. During the surge, the Bucks went 0-for-10 from the field and committed seven turnovers.

It was the first tie for New Jersey since the 2-2 tie to start the game.

But a jumper by Sam Cassell followed by free throws by Lindsey Hunter and Tim Thomas gave Milwaukee a 78-75 lead, setting up Marbury's tying shot.

New Jersey coach Byron Scott mostly used reserve players in the run that tied the game. Except for Marbury, Scott inserted Stepania, Evan Eschmeyer, Stephen Jackson and Harris to ignite the offense.

"I put Stephon back in because he has a knack for hitting big shots in clutch situations," Scott said. "He came in and did exactly what he was capable of. Our bench did a great job of getting us back into that game."

Thomas also scored 16 points, Cassell added 14 and Robinson 13 and 11 rebounds for the Bucks, who have won seven of nine. Milwaukee is 2-0 against New Jersey this season.

"We had good looks," Robinson added. "We just stopped making them, I'm just happy we didn't do this against a better team. In this league, sometimes you win when you're not supposed to win. Sometimes you lose when you're not supposed to lose. Tonight, we should've lost."

Marbury and Harris scored 12 points apiece for the Nets. Marbury made just 3-of-14 shots and the team dropped to 2-3 since he returned from a four-game absence due to a sprained ankle.

Jason Caffey scored four points and Robinson hit a bucket to give the Bucks a 57-29 lead with 10:50 to play in the third quarter. Milwaukee led 70-47 entering the final period.

"The first half we played a hell of a match," Bucks coach George Karl said. "But we get a big lead and our starters play selfish and worry more about their stats than about playing team basketball. Senator Kohl (team owner Herb Kohl) should fine me for the way we played. The leadership and toughness by this team in the second half, including myself, was utterly disgusting."

Cassell scored 12 points, Allen added 11 and Thomas 10 as the Bucks raced to a 51-29 halftime lead. They shot 46 percent (19-of-41) while holding the Nets to a miserable 17 percent (6-of-35).

New Jersey made only one basket in the second quarter and five in the first, allowing Milwaukee to jump out to a 17-6 start in the first six minutes.

"We played some of our best and some of our worst basketball in one game," Scott added.

Overall, Milwaukee shot 36 percent (28-of-77) and New Jersey was at 33 percent (25-of-75).

Milwaukee is now 10-13 after starting the season 3-9. It is 6-0 at home when holding opponents under 90 points.
