Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- The Milwaukee Bucks nearly undid all of Sam Cassell's good work.

Cassell had a season-high 29 points and 12 assists as the Bucks built a big lead and hung on for their 11th victory in 13 games, 112-109 over the Sacramento Kings in a shootout between division leaders.

Cassell made 10-of-16 shots, primarily mid-range jumpers. He was 8-of-8 from from the line and added five rebounds as he lit up Jason Williams.

"I didn't think we picked up Sam quick enough tonight," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "We let him keep shooting open jumpers and he was knocking them down from all over."

The Bucks took the lead for good late in the second quarter and held a 95-79 advantage with 10 1/2 minutes to play before practically unraveling on their home floor, where they had won nine of their last 10 games.

The Kings pulled within 102-99 on Doug Chrisstie's two free throws with 2:37 remaining. Jumpers by Glenn Robinson and Cassell gave the Bucks some breathing room with 1:43 left.

But Milwaukee still could not close it out. It made just 6-of-12 free throws in the final 38 seconds while Sacramento battled back.

"We continue to blow leads," Bucks coach George Karl said. "Tonight we did it with out big players missing free throws."

"We've got to do a better job of executing down the stretch and making free throws," Cassell said.

A jumper by Chris Webber, who had 39 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists, cut the deficit to 111-109 and the Kings fouled Robinson with 4.2 seconds to go.

Robinson made the first and missed the second and Webber got the rebound. He threw a 60-foot bounce pass to a wide-open Peja Stojakovic, who makes 40 percent of his 3-pointers. But his potential tying shot banged off the left side of the rim as the buzzer sounded.

"That last shot could have gone in and we could have lost in overtime," Karl said. "I thought we turned the ball over too much in the fourth quarter, which is uncharacteristic of us."

"You can't play from behind on the road against a good team and expect to win," Adelman said.

Ray Allen scored 28 points and Robinson added 15 for the Bucks, who shot 52 percent (44-of-84) and improved to 6-9 against teams from the powerful Western Conference. Milwaukee widened its lead over Toronto to five games in the Central Division.

"The Bucks are definitely one of the best teams in the Eastern Conference," Kings center Vlade Divac said. "I like the way Milwaukee plays basketball. They are on a good roll right now going into the break."

Stojakovic scored 23 points and Christie added 13 for the Kings, who fell to 0-2 on their five-game road trip, all against teams with winning records. Sacramento (31-14) fell one game behind first-place Portland in the Pacific Division and tries to avoid its first three-game skid of the season Wednesday in Minnesota.

"We can't get down like that and expect to win on the road," said Webber. "We have to be more responsible with the basketball night in and night out. We have to toughen up defensively and win on the road."

Cassell scored 22 points in the first half as Milwaukee opened a 59-51 lead. Sacramento was still within 85-77 on two foul shots by Webber with 1:32 to go before Cassell came alive again.

The 6-2 guard made a jumper and fed Ervin Johnson for a dunk before a tip-in by Johnson made it 91-77 entering the final period. Allen scored 10 points in the third quarter.

"We take turns in trying to take over the game," Cassell said. "I carried us in the first quarter, then Ray did his thing in the third."

After Johnson's follow shot gave Milwaukee a 16-point lead, Sacramento rattled off 10 straight points. Tim Thomas stemmed the rally with a dunk with 6:48 left but the Kings kept coming.

Another basket by Johnson, who had nine points and nine boards, made it 102-93 with just under five minutes to go before the Kings made six straight free throws.

Sacramento shot 45 percent (39-of-86) but remained winless in Milwaukee since March 1, 1997.
