Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- An awful non-call stuck the Milwaukee Bucks with a non-win.

Eddie Jones' obvious discontinued dribble went uncalled by referee Bill Spooner, paving the way for Jimmy Jackson's 3-pointer at the regulation buzzer, and the Miami Heat went on to an extremely controversial 90-88 victory over the Bucks.

Spooner's non-call was a blatant, inexplicable oversight. With Milwaukee leading 82-79 in the waning seconds of the fourth quarter, Jones dribbled right around the 3-point arc and pulled up.

When his headfake did not fool Anthony Mason, Jones dribbled once to his left, a clear violation. Mason's hands were up and nowhere near the ball, but Spooner -- about eight feet from the play on the right sideline -- did not make the obvious call.

"He's making an excuse for a blown call and he knows it," Bucks coach George Karl said. "I mean, it's a high school double-dribble situation, and they let it go."

"The worst part about it was he thought he made a just call," Bucks guard Ray Allen said. "From his vantage point, he thought Mase hit the ball and it was obvious that he had his hands nowhere near the ball."

Even Jones admitted it was a violation.

"Yeah, I did," he said. "I have no problem admitting to it, but on the same note, I thought on the play before, I got hammered. They owe me that one, you know what I mean?"

Jones fired a 3-pointer off the back rim. The long rebound went to Jackson, whose 3-pointer forced overtime.

"That's why we got him," Jones said. "He's the guy who when things aren't going great, he comes through."

The extra session was as tense as the fourth quarter. Allen's 3-pointer gave Milwaukee an 88-86 lead with 2:38 to play, but Brian Grant tied it with a jumper at the 1:18 mark.

Jackson missed a driving layup with 19 seconds remaining, but Tim Thomas lost his dribble in transition. Jones buried a short jumper for a 90-88 lead with 7.1 seconds to go.

On Milwaukee's final possession, Allen's running rainbow dropped but did not count because he was fouled before the shot with 3.4 seconds left. Glenn Robinson missed a tough mid-range jumper at the buzzer.

Miami coach Pat Riley tried to rationalize the turn of events.

"I didn't see the (Eddie Jones) replay," he said. "Whatever it was, those are things that happen in a game. Ray Allen got the last call and he hit Kendall (Gill) right in the face. It could have been an offensive foul. It's the same thing."

Jones scored 22 points and Grant added 21 and 13 rebounds for the Heat (20-29), who climbed past the New York Knicks and out of the Atlantic Division cellar.

Allen scored 30 points and Robinson added 25 for the Bucks, who have lost three in a row, all to teams below .500.

"It seems like when you're not playing well, things like tonight seem to happen to you," Robinson said.

The Bucks led by 17 points early in the second quarter and trailed by seven late in the third period. In the fourth quarter and overtime, there were five ties and 12 lead changes.

"It was about as wild a game as you'll see," Riley said. "Both sides playing extremnely hard; it was a war. It was one of those wild '70s games."

"I have been in a lot of games in my career, and I have never experienced a game like that before in my life," Heat center Alonzo Mourning said. "The calls, the possessions, the turnovers, the bounces of the shots -- it was amazing."

Allen's 3-pointer capped a 10-0 run and gave Milwaukee a 69-66 lead, the first of nine lead changes in the fourth period. Two free throws by Jones gave Miami a 77-74 edge with 3:24 to play.

A follow shot by Ervin Johnson, who grabbed 15 rebounds, and a pair of foul shots by Allen gave the Bucks the lead with 1:11 left. Jones and Johnson traded a pair of free throws apiece and Jones lost his dribble on a drive, leading to two foul shots by Thomas with 11 seconds left.

Allen and Mourning exchanged baskets to open overtime and a free throw by Robinson gave the Bucks an 85-84 edge. After a basket by Miami's Rod Strickland with 3:28 remaining, Allen's 3-pointer gave Milwaukee its last lead.

"Right now, our luck, our confidence and all the rest of that stuff is fragile," Karl said.

Mourning scored 14 points and Gill added 10 for the Heat, who shot under 39 percent (34-of-88) from the field.

Thomas scored 11 points and Rafer Alston had 10 assists for the Bucks, who shot 39 percent (33-of-84).

Robinson scored 19 points in the first quarter as the Bucks bolted to a 32-19 lead. But when he sat at the outset of the second quarter, Milwaukee soon went cold.

Behind the mid-range shooting of Grant, Miami fought back to take a 47-44 halftime lead and built it to 66-59 late in the third quarter.
