Game Story

EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey (Ticker) -- With a huge trade rumor swirling between the teams, the Milwaukee Bucks held the New Jersey Nets to just two points over the final three minutes, holding on for a 94-86 victory.

The teams reportedly are talking about a deal that would send guards Terrell Brandon and Elliot Perry to New Jersey for guard Sam Cassell and forwards Chris Gatling and Brian Evans.

Brandon and Cassell both are sidelined with injuries. Gatling asked for a trade last week and Nets general manager John Nash said he would accomodate him.

Ray Allen had 19 points and 10 rebounds and Glenn Robinson added 18 points, including six key free throws in the final minute, as the Bucks won for just the second time in their last seven games after a 5-1 start.

"I just wanted to keep getting contact and get in there to see things collapse," Robinson said. "You know New Jersey was going to make a run at us, but we just had to maintain our positions."

New Jersey grabbed its first lead since early in the opening quarter when Kendall Gill fed Eric Murdock for a high-arcing 3-pointer with 3:05 to play.

The basket capped a 9-0 spurt and gave the Nets an 84-83 edge. But they went scoreless over the next 2 1/2 minutes as the Bucks regained control.

Robinson put Milwaukee ahead to stay, draining a 10-footer with 2:48 remaining. Less than a minute later, Vinny Del Negro -- starting for Brandon, who has bruised ribs -- buried a jumper to make it 87-84.

The Nets' next two possessions resulted in a shot-clock violation and a missed jumper by Keith Van Horn. Robinson sank two free throws and Ervin Johnson added a foul shot for a 90-84 lead with 35 seconds to go.

Van Horn had a dunk with 28 seconds left before Robinson answered with two free throws a second later to help seal the win.

"To snap back from a two-game losing streak and get the negative out of the locker room is a good thing," said Bucks coach George Karl.

One night after hitting the winning basket at the buzzer in a victory at Boston on Monday, Van Horn scored 27 points. The Nets, who ended a six-game losing streak Monday, have not won at home since defeating Detroit on February 16.

"We played hard for three quarters, but it's tough to come back from 20 points down," Van Horn said. "It was disappointing after last night."

Gill and fellow starter Kerry Kittles combined to shoot 2-of-17 for just five points in the first half after combining for 43 points on 18-of-31 shooting Monday. New Jersey connected on a dismal 25 percent (11-of-44) during the opening 24 minutes as Milwaukee took a 49-35 lead.

"I think the fans were a little upset in the first half," Allen said. "But the Nets came back in the third quarter, and we just held them off."

Allen scored nine points in the first quarter, including seven in an 11-1 run that gave the Bucks a 16-9 lead. The advantage was 27-21 early in the second period when the bench accounted for all of Milwaukee's points in a 15-2 burst. Armen Gilliam scored six Perry had two baskets, Johnson had a tip-in and Dell Curry nailed a 3-pointer.

Perry and Del Negro each contributed 10 points, Johnson added nine and 10 rebounds and Curry chipped in eight points. Milwaukee's bench outscored New Jersey's reserves, 40-25.

Van Horn scored nine points in the third quarter as the Nets climbed within 74-66. But New Jersey hit just 9-of-26 (35 percent) in the final period and did not go to the line.

"There were a couple of loose balls that we didn't get, but this is the best hustle of the year," Nets coach John Calipari said. "Everybody knows that this is how we have to play. There was some good stuff and some bad stuff. ... We did not cave in."

Milwaukee made 7-of-8 foul shots in the fourth period. It shot 44 percent (36-of-81) from the field and held the Nets to 35 percent (31-of-89).

Kittles scored 12 points on 5-of-16 shooting, Murdock shot 4-of-11 for 10 points and Gill scored just seven on 3-of-14. Damon Jones contributed 12 points off the bench, hitting 3-of-11 shots, as New Jersey suffered its fourth straight home loss.

"It's tough to lose this one, although they're all tough right now," said Nets center Jayson Williams, who had 11 rebounds. "We needed this comeback. We played well in the fourth quarter, but not the first. We have to play all four quarters."
