Game Story

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Ticker) -- For once, the Vancouver Grizzlies finished strongly.

Shareef Abdur-Rahim collected a season-high 38 points and the Grizzlies scored the game's final six points en route to a 120-117 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks.

Abdur-Rahim connected on 15-of-17 shots from the field and made all eight of his free throws, falling one point shy of matching his career high, established on February 17, 1999 against Boston.

"It comes down to making the big play, especially down the stretch," Abdur-Rahim said. "Sometimes we make big plays, but the outcome doesn't go in our favor and it comes out looking bad for us and people don't think we could win close games."

"He played tremendous. You don't notice until the end that he didn't miss many shots," Grizzlies coach Sidney Lowe said. "We don't know how much he had, but he played great down the end, where he took on the challenge."

It looked like Abdur-Rahim's big effort would be wasted after the Bucks took a 117-114 lead with 2:43 remaining on a layup by Sam Cassell. But those would be the last points for the Bucks.

Abdur-Rahim made a layup with 48 seconds left and Milwaukee center Scott Williams, who was not on the court, was called for a technical foul while on the bench. Abdur-Rahim converted the ensuing free throw to tie it.

Williams was upset with the officiating, especially referee Mike Callahan.

"He should issue an apology to me for being damning to my team and damning to my career," Williams said. "The officiating was horrible and I'll take the fine."

After Lindsey Hunter missed a jumper for the Bucks, Damon Jones scored on a fastbreak layup to put the Grizzlies ahead for good with 25 seconds left.

Glenn Robinson missed a 12-footer that would have tied it and Bryant Reeves made 1-of-2 from the line, giving Vancouver a 120-117 lead with 8.9 seconds remaining.

The Bucks had one last chance to tie, but Ray Allen's 3-pointer from the top of the key bounced off the front rim as time expired.

Michael Dickerson added 21 points and Mike Bibby 16 and a season-high 14 assists for Vancouver, which won for just the sixth time in its last 28 games. The Grizzlies won despite committing 26 turnovers that led to 32 points for Milwaukee.

"Today, things were going good for us. We were knocking down shots," Bibby said. "We were running the ball hard. They would score a basekt and we would be right back on them. I think our team plays better, and that showed today."

Robinson scored 31 points, Allen 28 and Cassell 24 for the Bucks, who have lost consecutive games for the first time since a four-game slide from November 18-25.

"That's probably the most I've ran in a long time. They ran the ball up and down the floor," Robinson said. "They played with a lot of energy. It's important to come out early and take away their confidence, which we didn't do today."

Two days after scoring a career-high 39 points in a loss at Portland, Milwaukee forward Tim Thomas was ejected in the third quarter after picking up a pair of technical fouls.

The Bucks looked to have things in control and were in front 90-82 with 3:05 left in the third quarter after a 3-pointer by Allen, who was 10-of-18 from the field.

Abdur-Rahim scored eight points over the last 3:05 of the period as the Grizzlies forged a 94-94 tie entering the fourth quarter.

Reeves added 16 points off the bench for the Grizzlies, who shot a season-high 58 percent (44-of-76) and held a 39-36 rebounding advantage. The 120 points also were a season best for Vancouver.

"Personally, I think we've been in that situation many times before. The difference today was that we made the plays down the stretch and things were working offensively," Reeves said.

Milwaukee led by as many as 10 points in the first half, but the Grizzlies battled back and trailed just 63-62 at the break. Cassell and Allen each had 16 points for Milwaukee, while Abdur-Rahim had 16 for the Grizzlies.

The Bucks shot 49.5 percent (50-of-101).
