Game Story

CLEVELAND (Ticker) -- For the second straight game, the Milwaukee Bucks blew a 21-point lead. This time, their collapse was less painful. Sam Cassell had his first career triple-double with a season-high 39 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists as wild 140-133 double-overtime triumph over the Cleveland Cavaliers. Reserve Michael Redd scored a career-high 35 points for the Bucks, who snapped a season-high three-game losing streak and improved to 2-1 in overtime. "There was a lot of good basketball and a lot of crazy basketball," Bucks coach George Karl said. "At the end of the game, we go home the right way." Ray Allen scored 28 points and Tim Thomas added 22 for Milwaukee in the highest-scoring game in the nine-year history of Gund Arena. The Bucks suffered a 94-88 loss to New Orleans on Saturday after leading by 21 points late in the second quarter. In this one, Milwaukee blew a 90-69 advantage with 2:15 left in the third quarter and a six-point lead in overtime. But the Bucks took the lead for good, 126-124, on a jumper by Thomas with 3:01 to play in the second extra session. Allen followed with his sixth 3-pointer to give the Bucks a five-point edge with 2:36 left. The Cavaliers got no closer than three points thereafter. Redd also connected on six shots from the arc to help the Bucks tie their franchise record for 3-pointers (16) and set a mark for attempts (33). "I think it was a carry over from New Orleans," said Redd, an Ohio native who played for Ohio State. "We had a big lead against New Orleans and they came back and won the game. It almost came close to that tonight. We've just got to do a better job of finishing off teams. Our record should be much better than what it is right now." Ricky Davis scored a career-high 45 points and Zydrunas Ilgauskas added 20 and 11 rebounds for Cleveland, which has lost 17 of its last 18 games. Ilgauskas did not play in the second overtime because he has a team-imposed time limit to rest his chronically sore feet. "Thirty-five minutes is his limit and I'm not going over it this year," Lucas said. "That's what it is and that's how it's going to be. We've got to find a way to get it done earlier until waiting to do what we did tonight. He was mad at me and I think the team was mad at me, but I'm OK with that because that means we still care." Smush Parker contributed a season-high 20 points and fellow rookie Carlos Boozer added 14 with 13 rebounds off the bench. "He came in and brought energy," Davis said of Parker, who scored all 20 of his points after halftime. "He played the best he's played all year. He's growing, and we got of more guys growing. Booze is growing, so in a little bit more time we will be all right." "I love the way Boozer came in and played," Lucas said. "I love what Smush Parker did and I think Smush can do that on a regular basis. I'd like to see more of that." Davis made 16-of-33 shots, including 6-of-8 from the arc, en route to setting a team record for most points at Gund Arena. The Bucks converted 23 turnovers by the Cavs into 38 points, while Cleveland turned 13 giveaways by Milwaukee into just 12 points. Milwaukee took its 90-69 lead after Redd made 1-of-2 free throws. Cleveland scored the final six points of the period and tied the game, 100-100, on a pair of free throws by Boozer with 1:09 remaining. A jumper by Thomas with 56 seconds to go gave the Bucks the lead, and after a stop, Thomas grabbed an offensive rebound and Cassell was fouled with 12 seconds left. But Cassell made only 1-of-2 free throws, and after a timeout, Davis tied the game with a 3-pointer from the left corner with 8.6 seconds left after Ilgauskas appeared to get away with a moving pick on Redd, who was defending Davis. "That was drawn up by coach," Davis said. "I just came off a couple of baseline screens and Z set up a screen and it got me open." "I thought it was illegal, but the refs didn't see it that way," said Redd, who was knocked to the floor after running into the 7-3 Ilgauskas. "But I have no excuses." Cassell, who missed the loss to New Orleans with a strained hip flexor, front-rimmed a jumper just before the buzzer, sending the game into overtime. "Despite them making their run, we had free throws that could have iced the game," Allen said. The Bucks led, 114-108, after Cassell made a layup with 1:45 left in overtime before Davis responded with a 3-pointer and a layup and free throw to tie the game with 68 seconds remaining. Redd put Milwaukee on top, 116-114, with a pair of free throws with 55 seconds to go, but Cassell fouled Parker in the left corner and the rookie nailed all three attempts from the line with 40 seconds to play. "I know I'm a rookie," Parker said. "When we're down 20 or 30 points, I feel like I can bring this game back to victory. We were just playing basketball." Aftr Thomas missed two from the line with 25 seconds to go, Milwaukee grabbed the offensive rebound, but Redd had a layup blocked by Jumaine Jones. Davis was fouled with 10 seconds left but made only 1-of-2 attempts from the line, allowing Thomas to make a driving layup with 3.5 seconds to play after a feed from Cassell. Davis missed a potential game-winning jumper from the left side just before the buzzer, keeping the score at 118-118. "I don't even know how I missed it," Davis said. "That is usually my key shot. I had a great look." Cleveland failed in an attempt to win consecutive home games for the first time this season. The Bucks connected on 47 percent (46-of-97) but allowed the Cavs to shoot 49 percent (52-of-106) and win the rebounding battle, 53-44. "Our game is an offensive game, but I'd like to see us have a tougher mind-set defensively," Karl said.
