Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- The Milwaukee Bucks' offense did a disappearing act in the second half and the Seattle SuperSonics took full advantage.

The Sonics scored 18 straight points during a seven-minute stretch that extended into the fourth quarter and rallied for a 99-88 victory over the Bucks.

Brent Barry scored a season-high 29 points and grabbed 10 rebounds for Seattle, which faced a 74-67 deficit after Milwaukee's Sam Cassell hit a jumper with 3:10 remaining in the third quarter.

But the Bucks did not score again until Tim Thomas converted 1-of-2 from the line with 7:55 to go. Former Buck Vin Baker's layup capped the run and gave Seattle an 85-74 cushion with nine minutes left.

Gary Payton and Rashard Lewis scored 20 points apiece for the Sonics, who rebounded from Wednesday's 111-101 loss to Charlotte in which they allowed 71 points in the first half. Payton also pulled down 10 rebounds.

"I challenged our guys to make the changes necessary to win," Seattle coach Nate McMillan said. "Brent Barry gave us a great effort tonight. Rashard Lewis gave us low-post answers in the game. It was a solid team effort."

Milwaukee, which has dropped two straight at home following an eight-game winning streak, went nearly nine minutes without a basket. Michael Redd's uncontested layup with 6:07 to play ended the drought, pulling the Bucks within 87-77.

Cassell also scored 29 points for Milwaukee, which got no closer than nine in the final minutes.

"Lack of confidence and softness are not a good combination," Milwaukee coach George Karl said. "We lost the confidence tonight and then we got soft on the defensive end of the floor. Every season has stretches of chaos and confusion. We're in one of those stretches right now."

The loss ended Karl's hopes of coaching the Eastern Conference in next month's All-Star Game. The honor will go to New Jersey's Byron Scott, whose team is guaranteed of having the best record in the East by Saturday's cut-off date.

Milwaukee led, 54-52, at the intermission, but scored just 34 points in the second half, including 14 in the final period.

"They have so many great shooters, Sam, Ray (Allen) and Michael Redd, who has been playing well," said Barry, who made 11-of-14 shots. "You just have to make them get shots. Sam was on early and Ray wasn't getting his shots. We proved to ourselves that we can come back and win."

Thomas scored 17 points for the Bucks, but Allen, Milwaukee's leading scorer, was held to just 11 on 4-of-15 shooting. He missed his first nine 3-point attempts before making one in the final minutes.

"I started thinking about my shot too much in the second half," Allen said. "I think when I start missing threes like I was tonight, it brings the confidence of the team down a little bit."

In Tuesday's 92-81 loss to Phoenix, Allen was held without a 3-pointer for the first time in 43 games.

"Ray was the best shooter in the world for a three-week stretch," Karl said. "Now, he just can't find his shot at all."

The Bucks closed to 89-82 on Thomas' 3-pointer and Redd's dunk with 4:18 remaining. But Payton got free for a layup and Desmond Mason followed in Mason's miss to make it 93-82 with 3:02 left.

Cassell's driving layup got the deficit back under 10 with 1:43 left, but Lewis delivered the backbreaker, drilling a 3-pointer from the left corner to give the Sonics a 96-84 cushion with 90 seconds remaining.

"I thought it was our best game because of the way were played last night," McMillan said. "We didn't substitute much in the second half and they gutted it out."

Cassell scored five straight points to give the Bucks a 74-67 lead before the Sonics scored the final 10 points of the third period. Barry made a 3-pointer with two seconds left to give Seattle a 77-74 lead entering the final quarter.

The Sonics have gone 6-5 since a season-high six-game winning streak from December 16-29.

"We need to string more wins in a row," Payton said. "We can't win two and then lose a couple and then win one. We need to get some sort of streak going."
