Game Story

BOSTON (Ticker) -- Dell Curry is having quite a week.

Coming off a season-high 18 points against his former team on Wednesday, the 12-year veteran buried the go-ahead 3-pointer with 43 seconds remaining tonight to lead the Milwaukee Bucks past the Boston Celtics, 84-83.

Curry, one of the game's deadliest outside shooters, had his best game of the season Wednesday against the Charlotte Hornets and remained hot, making 7-of-12 shots.

Ray Allen scored 19 points and rookie Robert Traylor added 15 for the Bucks, who have won four straight games.

"Tonight we found a way to get it done," Allen said. "I'd rather win this one ugly then lose this one any which way. This team is still pretty young. Games like this help us have fun."

Antoine Walker led Boston with 23 points and tied a career high with 18 rebounds but missed a potential game-winning tip in the final seconds. The loss was fifth straight at home for Boston, the longest such streak since losing six in a row during the 1996-97 season.

Rookie Paul Pierce scored 21 points and grabbed seven rebounds for the Celtics, who have dropped eight of 10 overall and fell to 10-20 on the season.

"We don't feel snakebit," Walker said. "We can't start feeling down on ourselves because things are not going our way. Obviously I thought that shot would go in but it didn't. That is the way things are going for us now. This is still the kind of team that can win 15 of its final 20 games and build for next year."

The game was tied, 81-81, when Kenny Anderson grabbed a rebound and drove for a layup with 61 seconds left. Glenn Robinson batted away the ball a split-second late and was called for goaltending.

Milwaukee set up its half-court offense and a crosscourt pass ended up in the hands of defensive specialist Michael Curry. Curry quickly tapped the ball back to Dell Curry, who drained the 25-footer for an 84-83 lead.

"You sort of have to feel you are one of the best 3-point shooters in the game, because that is how you get comfortable when the game is on the line," Curry said. "Michael made a great kick to me, I got a great look and just knocked it down."

Boston did not call timeout and Vitaly Potapenko had his baseline jumper blocked by Robinson. With four seconds on the shot clock, Anderson penetrated into the lane but was hammered going to the basket. The loose ball popped right to Walker, who saw his shot rim around and out.

Haywoode Workman, who was scoreless in 32 minutes, came up with the loose ball and was fouled with 1.8 seconds left. Milwaukee eventually inbounded the ball to Dell Curry, who dribbled out the clock.

"As for that last play, we were just lucky it did not go in," said Bucks coach George Karl. "There were so many big plays in the last five minutes, it's unbelievable. We have so much confidence in our last-second plays that it is almost scary for such a young team."

Boston held a 53-39 rebounding edge and made 11-of-12 foul shots but committed 18 turnovers and shot just 39 percent (33-of-84) from the field.

Milwaukee won despite making just 16-of-30 free throws.
