Game Recap

Terrell Brandon's layup with 21 seconds left gave the Milwaukee Bucks their third straight win, an 87-86 triumph over the Kings, whose 12-game losing streak is their longest since moving to Sacramento.

Jerald Honeycutt matched a season high with 20 points and Armon Gilliam added 19 for the Bucks, who have a chance for a 4-0 road trip on Sunday when they travel to Indiana.

Mitch Richmond scored 23 points for the Kings, who had dropped 11 straight from February 5th-26th, 1996. They are two losses shy of the longest skid in franchise history -- 14-game slides during the 1959-60 and 1971-72 seasons, when the team was based in Cincinnati.

"It's very embarrassing to lose 12 in a row," Sacramento coach Eddie Jordan said. "We seem to find new ways to lose. Milwaukee's put together a nice little run on the road, winning three in a row, and I give a lot of credit to them. We seem to find ways to break down and hurt ourselves. We don't get important rebounds, loose balls, we can't make open shots and we don't execute properly. It's been like that every night, every game."

Sacramento brought a six-point lead into the fourth quarter and was still ahead by five with 6:49 to play. But Michael Curry knocked down a jumper, and after one free throw by Corliss Williamson, Tyrone Hill dunked and Ray Allen hit a baseline jumper to knot the game at 79-79 with 5:17 remaining.

With the game tied at 81-81, Otis Thorpe missed a chance to give the Kings the lead when he missed two free throws. Curry followed with four straight Milwaukee points around Williamson's two free throws for an 85-83 Bucks lead with 2:03 to play.

Williamson's layup tied it again with 1:47 to go, but the Kings failed to take the lead when Lawrence Funderburke misfired on a pair of ill-advised shots. Thorpe then could hit only one free throw with 43 seconds left, and hurt Sacramento again seconds later when he was whistled for trying to steal the tip on a jump ball. Milwaukee was awarded possession, setting the stage for Brandon's layup. Richmond was short on a jumper with five seconds to go.

"All the losses that you count up take their toll, because tonight we were in the ballgame," Richmond said. "Down the stretch we had three or four possessions that we just didn't run our offense to perfection. And that jump ball was crucial at the end."

Sacramento reeled off a 16-0 burst in the first quarter, supplying the Kings with an 18-4 advantage with 7:14 left in the period. The Bucks were within nine points midway through the second before Gilliam's free throw capped an 18-4 run for a 49-44 Milwaukee lead with 32 seconds left in the half. Honeycutt, playing for a foul-plagued Allen, had 12 points in the period.

"Terrell and Tyrone coming back gave us a lot of emotion," Honeycutt said. "All year we've been in games like this but on the losing end. It's good to be on a winnign end for a change."

But Sacramento held Milwaukee scoreless for the first 6:09 of the third and used an 11-0 burst -- with six points from Thorpe -- for a 57-50 advantage. The Bucks fought back to tie at 60-60 but Sacramento scored 10 of the final 14 points of the period for a 70-64 lead entering the fourth.

Hill, playing for the first time since suffering a back injury in a scary fall on March 14th, had six points and seven rebounds in 24 mintues off the bench. Brandon added seven assists in his second game back from an ankle injury.

"It certainly feels nice, we've got a couple of bodies back with Terrell and Tyrone both stepping up for us tonight. I felt forced early to have to play Terrell and especially Tyrone because we got behind so quickly," Milwaukee coach Chris Ford said. They were killing us in the paint so we brought Tyrone and Jamie (Feick) in and they finished a good job up front."

Thorpe finished with 19 points and 18 rebounds and Williamson had 18 points and 12 boards for the Kings, who shot 38 percent (31-of-82) from the field but held a 50-46 rebounding advantage.
