Game Story

PORTLAND, Oregon (Ticker) -- In an old-fashioned shootout, the Milwaukee Bucks had plenty of threes but too many T's.

A 3-point barrage was undone by a series of technical fouls in the fourth quarter by the Bucks, who could not cool off the red-hot Portland Trail Blazers in a 119-115 loss.

Milwaukee's Tim Thomas scored a career-high 39 points with a team-record eight 3-pointers -- all in the second half, tying an NBA record. But the Bucks wasted a team record-tying 13 3-pointers, including four in the final 91 seconds.

By that time, Milwaukee coach George Karl already was in the locker room, picking up technical fouls seven minutes apart in the final period. The second came with 1:15 to play and Karl had to be restrained by his assistants and players.

"(I was) tired of getting messed with by the referees," Karl said. "I wanted to go home."

"You saw George's reaction. I think George's reaction speaks for itself," Bucks forward Glenn Robinson said. "They got a lot of touch fouls. There's nothing we can do about it."

Milwaukee was 13-of-22 from behind the arc, matching the team mark set January 10, 2000 against Charlotte. Thomas made 8-of-10, breaking Ray Allen's team record of seven set against Chicago on January 16, 1998.

"You're taught when you're 3-years old -- when you're wide open, shoot the ball," Thomas said. "So I was open and it was just dropping for me."

"He can get hot at any time. That's the type of player he is," Robinson said. "That helped us out a lot."

As hot as the Bucks were, the Trail Blazers were hotter. They shot a searing 62 percent (41-of-66) and pushed their winning streak to a season-high seven games.

"We did a lot of good things," Blazers coach Mike Dunleavy said. "We spaced the court real well against their double-teams and we made plays out of the double-teams and got a lot of opportunity baskets."

Steve Smith scored 26 points and Bonzi Wells added 25 for Portland. The shooting guards combined for 26 points in the fourth quarter, when each team totaled 40 points.

The Blazers opened a 52-42 halftime advantage but did not take the lead for good until Smith made two free throws for a 70-68 edge with 3:57 left in the third quarter.

Thomas made four 3-pointers in the period but Milwaukee trailed 79-75 entering the fourth quarter. Karl and guard Ray Allen were hit with technicals 27 seconds apart early in the period.

"I know one thing -- I'm not going to criticize the referees," Allen said. "I don't want to get fined."

Thomas hit two more from the arc but Portland opened the margin to 101-88 on a jumper by Wells with 5:52 remaining. It was 109-100 after two free throw by Wells with 1:42 left but Thomas sank another 3-pointer before he was called for a foul.

Karl exploded and was tossed. Free throws by Smith and Damon Stoudamire made it 111-103 with with 1:15 to go and the Blazers survived 3-pointers by Thomas, Allen and Glenn Robinson.

"We just made mistakes in our coverage," Dunleavy said. "The guy who was supposed to go to him didn't go to him and we got sucked in."

Scottie Pippen and Rasheed Wallace scored 14 points each, Shawn Kemp added 12 and Arvydas Sabonis added 10 for Portland, which made 34-of-43 free throws. Smith was 15-of-16 from the line.

"They beat the hell out of you and we don't touch them and they get fouls," Karl said. "We don't get any fouls. Pretty simple observation."

Robinson scored 26 points, Sam Cassell added 22 and 10 assists and Allen scored 18 for the Bucks, who shot 49 percent (40-of-82) and were outrebounded, 37-30.
