Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- After consecutive losses to the league-worst Chicago Bulls, could things possibly get worse for the Washington Wizards? Sure, they could.

Scott Williams' uncontested dunk with two-tenths of a second remaining in the second overtime lifted the Milwaukee Bucks to a 130-129 victory and handed the Wizards another devastating defeat.

"I don't know if we should have won, but it was a great game," Milwaukee coach George Karl said. "Washington played a great game tonight. I don't know if I can keep coaching games like this. Right now there are a lot of teams searching for confidence and Washington is one of them."

Washington dropped a home-and-home series to Chicago, being outscored by 11 and seven points, respectively, in the embarrassing defeats. Tonight, it held a 101-94 lead with 1:54 remaining in regulation before suffering a catastrophic collapse.

Sam Cassell made two free throws to cap an 11-2 run and give Milwaukee a 105-103 lead with 13 seconds left. But Tracy Murray, who matched a career-high with seven 3-pointers and scored a season-high 27 points, calmly drained a 22-footer with 3.6 seconds remaining to send the game into overtime.

Murray appeared poised to take control of the contest when he knocked down a 26-footer and a free throw to give Washington a 117-116 lead with 42 seconds left in the first extra session. Rod Strickland's free throw with 5.3 seconds remaining made it a two-point lead before Washington failed to close the deal, fouling Cassell with two ticks left.

"When I'm in that situation, those who know me know I'm not going to miss those," Cassell said. "That's where I want to be."

The Bucks' point guard, an 87 percent foul shooter, made both to send the teams into a second overtime at 118-118.

Milwaukee quickly took command, racing to a 126-120 lead with 1:47 remaining before Mitch Richmond answered for Washington with two free throws and a 3-pointer to cut the deficit to one.

Richmond's 16-footer with 1.6 seconds left appeared to clinch the win for Washington, but a disappointing season got downright ugly on the ensuing inbounds pass.

Vinny Del Negro lobbed a pass into the lane for Williams, who spun off Washington's Aaron Williams as he caught the ball and went to the rim untouched for a thunderous jam -- again with two ticks -- that gave Milwaukee the win.

"Vinny hit me with a great pass," Williams said. "It was the first time I ever had a game-winner, whether it be high school, college and in the pros. It meant a lot to me. That was the designed play. Coach had a lot of confidence in me."

"Everybody is going to remember Scott Williams, but Vinny made a great pass," Karl added. "To me, the great play was Vinny's pass."

Glenn Robinson scored 34 points, Ray Allen added 28 and Cassell 16 for Milwaukee, but all three fouled out in overtime, leaving reserves Scott Williams and Del Negro to make the game's biggest play.

"They made some big baskets and we made some big baskets," said Cassell. "It was a long game, but a good game."

Richmond scored 25 points and Strickland had 24 points and 12 assists for Washington, which slipped to 5-13 on the road.

Juwan Howard scored 20 points before fouling out and Michael Smith added 17 for the Wizards, who shot 47 percent (44-of-93) but yielded 27 points off turnovers.

Tim Thomas scored 15 points off the bench and backup forward Danny Manning added 10 for Milwaukee, which shot 49 percent (48-of-97) and battled Washington to a 48-48 draw on the boards.

Robinson, who missed a chance to win the game in regulation when his layup at the buzzer kissed the front of the rim and bounced off, got the Bucks off to a good start. He scored 15 points to lead Milwaukee to a 35-27 advantage after one quarter.

But Howard, Strickland and Smith had 12 points each at the half as Washington rallied to take a 60-58 lead. The trio helped the Wizards maintain an 81-79 advantage entering the fourth period.

Manning hit a 16-footer to give the Bucks a 90-88 lead with 6:28 to play but Murray drained a 3-pointer and a 17-footer before Strickland's layup gave Washington a 95-90 lead 5:04 left.

Richmond made 1-of-2 at the line to give the Wizards a 101-94 lead with 1:54 remaining before the Bradley Center roof caved in on them.

Thomas and Allen made 3-pointers on consecutive trips and Allen converted a three-point play to cap a 9-2 run that forged a 103-103 tie with 49 seconds left, setting up a wild finish.
