Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- It was the NBA's best offense against the league's best defense. The offense prevailed.

Ray Allen had 26 points and Dale Ellis scored all of his 13, including three 3-pointers, in the fourth quarter as the Milwaukee Bucks used perimeter shooting to overcome the "Twin Towers" and defeat the San Antonio Spurs, 99-88.

Tim Duncan dunked off a spin move on Glenn Robinson to cut San Antonio's deficit to 89-84 with 1:43 left in the fourth quarter but failed to convert the three-point play.

Ellis nailed a 25-footer from the right corner against his former team to give Milwaukee an eight-point cushion with 1:25 left. After Duncan missed a hook shot, Sam Cassell drilled Milwaukee's fifth 3-pointer of the period and ninth of the game to seal the victory with 44.3 seconds remaining.

"When we were small and put shooters out there, we made the shots," Milwaukee coach George Karl said. "They're an awfully good basketball team. We're still trying to figure out how good we are. They're the world champions and we've got to earn respect."

Robinson scored 22 points, including 20 in the first half, and Cassell added 19 as Milwaukee won for the third time in four games.

Duncan had 29 points and 14 rebounds and David Robinson added 21 and seven for San Antonio, which committed 20 turnovers and lost for the second time in three games.

"We had no rhythm tonight," David Robinson said. "We are not communicating well. We have to make things fall into place. We're not close to where we want to be. There's too many of the same mistakes."

The game was tied at 6868 after three quarters, but Milwaukee scored six of the first seven points of the fourth as Tim Thomas and Ellis made 3-pointers. The Spurs scored the next five points as Duncan hit one of two free throws and Antonio Daniels and Malik Rose hit back-to-back jumpers to forge a 74-74 deadlock with 9:16 left.

But the Bucks answered with a 7-0 run as Ellis nailed a 24-footer from the left corner, Allen made a six-footer and Danny Manning hit a 13-footer with 7:08 remaining.

Former Spur J.R. Reid was called for a technical foul with 3:51 left and Mario Elie made the free throw. Another foul shot by Elie trimmed the deficit to 83-80. But the Spurs got no closer.

The Bucks shot 44 percent (38-for-85) from the field, including 57 percent (12-of-21) in the fourth quarter, and were 9-of-17 from 3-point range.

"The intensity just wasn't there for us," San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich said. "When you're having defensive breakdowns and you're playing an unselfish team, you won't be successful. We seemed too satisfied with last season."

San Antonio made only 30-of-69 shots (43 percent), going 6-of-14 in the final period.

Glenn Robinson was 5-for-5 from the field for 11 points in the first quarter as Milwaukee grabbed a 23-19 lead.

"It was real important for us to get off to a good start," he said. "They're a great offensive team. In order to beat them, you can't let them get out to a big lead early and expect to get back in the game."

Duncan and David Robinson combined for 17 of San Antonio's 25 points in the second quarter and the Spurs went into intermission trailing, 45-44.
