Game Story

TORONTO (Ticker) -- The Milwaukee Bucks' celebration almost was put on hold. Jerome Williams' follow dunk came less than a second too late and the Bucks held on for a 105-103 victory over the Toronto Raptors and clinched a postseason berth. In a back-and-forth game, Milwaukee took a 105-103 lead after Tim Thomas made 1-of-2 free throws with 5.6 seconds left. Toronto had no timeouts and threw the inbounds pass to Alvin Williams, who raced upcourt. Alvin Williams drove down the lane and his layup rolled off the rim, but Jerome Williams dunked the rebound with two hands. Officials reviewed the play and ruled that the dunk came just after time expires, and the Bucks became the seventh Eastern Conference team to clinch a playoff spot. "I blew it. That was basically it," Alvin Williams said. "I got a good look at the basket and I blew it. The game plan is to win. As a team, we did the right things. We had the opportunity to win and I blew it." "We're fortunate. Alvin put his head down and got by our perimeter defense," Milwaukee coach George Karl said. "We played small instead of big and we didn't really have a shot blocker back there. Fortunately, time ran out." Toni Kukoc had 25 points and eight rebounds and Gary Payton scored 24 points as Milwaukee won for the sixth time in seven games and moved within one game of seventh-place Orlando. "It was a big win by this ballclub," said Bucks guard Sam Cassell, who had 15 points and eight assists. "We're going to enjoy it. We're in the playoffs, back where we're supposed to be." "I really think Toronto probably played the better game tonight. That's just how this game goes," Karl said. "We were a little fortunate and I'm happy. It's exciting that we have a couple of days to prepare and relax and to try to keep doing what we've been doing, which has been playing pretty good basketball." Orlando clinched the last remaining playoff spot in the East with a win at Indiana on Friday. The Raptors had a 100-97 lead after Alvin Williams buried a fadeaway jumper with 2:19 remaining. Thomas responded with a layup and was fouled by Jerome Williams. He buried the ensuing free throw to forge a 100-100 tie with 1:51 left. Cassell made a layup 27 seconds later to give Milwaukee the lead for good at 102-100. After Jerome Williams missed two free throws, Anthony Mason followed a miss by Kukoc at 45 seconds. Toronto's Morris Peterson answered with a runner and, after Cassell misfired on a jumper, Alvin Williams made 1-of-2 free throws at the other end to bring Milwaukee within 104-103 with six seconds to go. The Raptors immediately fouled Thomas, who made 1-of-2 free throws to set up the final play. Jerome Williams collected 20 points and 13 rebounds and Rafer Alston scored a career-high 20 points for the lottery-bound Raptors, who have lost five in a row. "We had our opportunity," Jerome Williams said. "I missed free throws at the end, Alvin missed a couple. We just wanted to tie the game up, get it into overtime." Jerome Williams scored six points in the opening eight minutes and Alvin Williams, Peterson and Alston added five apiece as Toronto jumped out to a 25-15 lead. But Milwaukee closed the first quarter with a 10-2 run to pull within 27-25 heading into the second. The Raptors led by as many as nine in the second, but the Bucks used a late 11-2 run to take a 50-49 lead on a dunk by Kukoc with 33 seconds left. The teams were tied six times in the second half and exchanged the lead seven times in the final 12 1/2 minutes.
