GAME RECAP

Kendall Gill scored seven of his 25 points over the last 3 1/2 minutes of the second overtime as the New Jersey Nets recovered after blowing a 21-point lead and outlasted the Milwaukee Bucks, 112-104.

Gill hit a baseline jumper with 3:30 remaining to give the Nets the lead for good at 100-99. After Kerry Kittles and Glenn Robinson exchanged baskets, Gill drained a three-pointer from the top of the key to give the Nets a 105-101 advantage with 1:38 left.

On Milwaukee's next possession, Gill stripped Robinson of the ball for his season-high sixth steal of the game and was fouled on his drive to the hoop. He sank both free throws for a 107-101 lead with 59 seconds left. Robinson lost possession in the lane on Milwaukee's next trip and Kittles iced the game with a three-pointer.

"That was a character builder. It let us know we can't take a 20-point lead lightly," said Gill. "Late in the game is when I'm at my best, when I'm taking big shots. It makes me concentrate more."

"This was a great win, make no bones about it," said New Jersey coach John Calipari. "This was a huge win for us. We were up 20 and they bounced back and at one point we were down four. Kendall made the big plays for us. He's a big finisher."

Rookie Keith Van Horn scored 26 points and had a season-high 13 rebounds and Jayson Williams ignored a bruised hip to grab 22 rebounds and block a career-high five shots in 43 minutes for the Nets, who led by 21 points in the second quarter. New Jersey outrebounded Milwaukee 58-46.

"I never played in so much pain in my life. I didn't know until two minutes before the game that I would play," said Williams. "I didn't even warm up. When your back hurts you cannot move."

Sam Cassell scored 17 of his 25 points over the last 16 minutes and handed out a season-high 15 assists for the Nets, who beat the Bucks in overtime for the second time this season. New Jersey won, 113-109, at Milwaukee on November 1st behind 33 points from Cassell.

Robinson scored 29 points and had 11 rebounds and Ray Allen added 27 for Milwaukee, which suffered its fifth consecutive road loss. Former Net Armon Gilliam added 19 points, 11 in the fourth period, and Tyrone Hill 14 rebounds and 13 points.

"We know we've got enough talent. We've gotta win the games we know we're supposed to," said Robinson. "It was a great effort but we never should've been down 20. If we hadn't fallen behind, that 20-point run that we made would've been a 20-point win."

New Jersey was coasting along with a 63-43 lead with 7:53 left in the third quarter when Milwaukee responded with a quick 10-0 run, capped off by a pair of free throws by Elliot Perry to cut the deficit to 63-53 with 5:39 left in the period.

With just over eight minutes left, Milwaukee made its move with a 9-2 run to pull within 78-77, following Gilliam's one-hander with 4:59 left.

Robinson sank two free throws to give Milwaukee an 81-80 lead at the 3:06 mark and the teams traded baskets down the stretch. Allen had a chance to win it for the Bucks in the closing seconds, but his shot in the lane was blocked by Cassell, forcing overtime.

Two free throws by Gilliam with 2:37 left in the first overtime gave the Bucks a 93-89 lead. Van Horn's spinning shot in the lane 47 seconds later tied it at 93-93.

Allen hit a jumper for a two-point edge with 1:59 left, but Cassell tied it with a pair of free throws with 28 seconds to go. Cassell's foul-line jumper at the buzzer was off the mark, sending the game into a second overtime.

Cassell converted a three-point play to give the Nets a 98-97 lead. Milwaukee answered 12 seconds later to take its last lead of the game on a pair of free throws by Hill. But Gill scored seven of New Jersey's next nine points.

"Nothing's worse than playing 57 minutes and losing the game," said Van Horn. "It was a big win for us. Everybody that played made big plays. Not just big shots, but big plays."
