Game Story

SEATTLE (Ticker) -- Tim Thomas hit a turnaround jumper at the buzzer, making coach George Karl a winner in his return to Seattle and giving the Milwaukee Bucks a thrilling 101-99 victory over the SuperSonics.

Thomas, who scored 16 points, took Vinny Del Negro's inbounds pass with 2.1 seconds left and hit the foul-line shot over the outstreched arm of Vin Baker to give the Bucks their first win in Seattle in nine games since Janaury 24, 1990.

"I was right in the middle of the key," Thomas said. "Vinny threw a great pass, I just caught it, shot it and it went down. It's a great win."

"We used Ray (Allen) and Sam (Cassell) as decoys, just trying to open up the middle and Vinny made another great pass," said Karl, describing the game-clinching play.

Karl guided the SuperSonics for parts of seven seasons, posting a 384-150 mark and guiding them to the 1996 NBA Finals. But he left after the 1997-98 season and was replaced by Paul Westphal. Karl received a standing ovation as he led the Bucks on the court for warmups.

"It was great," said Karl, referring to the reaction. "This city has been extremely friendly to me. The only people I felt have not been friendly here is the organization and sometimes you all (the media). My success is going to be my greatest revenge.

"To win it the way we did and beat a good team -- we needed it after getting our (butts) whipped last night down in Los Angeles."

It looked as if the game would go to overtime when Gary Payton drove right and banked a layup high off the glass, tying the score. But the Bucks called timeout and executed the game-winning play, stunning the crowd of 15,389.

The fourth quarter was close throughout, with neither team leading by more than three points.

Payton's 27-footer gave the Sonics their last lead, 96-95, with 2:15 remaining. Glenn Robinson's two free throws put Milwaukee back on top with 1:58 to play. Ruben Patterson made 1-of-2 from the line to even the score with 1:13 left. But Robinson responded with an 18-footer from the left baseline, making it 99-97 with 1:01 left.

The Sonics suffered their first loss in games decided by three points or less after winning their first six of the season.

"We've been great in close games all year," Seattle coach Paul Westphal said. "This one, they made one more play than we did down the stretch. It was back and forth the last few minutes. Each team took turns making plays. I guess we blinked first. It was a tough loss for us, we'll have to bounce back."

The Sonics received a huge scare late in the second quarter when Payton collided with Cassell while battling for position inside. Both players writhed on the floor in apparent agony and Payton's teammates began to carry him off the court back to the locker room. But the superstar guard shook off the injury to his leg, insisted he was fit to play and came back onto the court.

"I was thinking he was gone for the year," said Westphal. "I couldn't believe it. I see them carrying him off and I thought he was really injured. That body is just amazing, how it can bend and take punishment and come back for more. I was just in awe of him -- being able to come back and play the way he did or come back and play at all after that hit."

Seattle has lost four of five since reeling off seven straight wins earlier this month. On Thursday, the Sonics beat the New Jersey Nets on a buzzer shot by Chuck Person.

Glenn Robinson scored 24 points, Ray Allen added 18 and Sam Cassell 18, nine assists and eight rebounds for Milwaukee, which shot 45 percent (38-of-84) from the field and made 21-of-25 foul shots.

"We knew it was an important game for George," Allen said. "It's a lot of motivation to play a game like this. We need to do this every night."

"It's a big win," Cassell said. "We got slaughtered last night. We came out and gave ourselves a chance. We were in a great situation to win the game down the stretch and Timmy made the shot to win the game."

Payton finished with 29 points and 12 assists. Patterson had 22, nine rebounds and six steals and Brent Barry scored 20 points for the Sonics, who shot 40 percent (30-of-75) and were outrebounded, 50-40.

Milwaukee led 29-26 after 12 minutes and 58-57 at halftime. The game was tied at 84-84 entering the fourth quarter.
