Game Story

EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey (Ticker) -- Jayson Williams' season may be over, but the New Jersey Nets' playoff hopes are suddenly very much alive.

Lucious Harris hit a 3-pointer with 2:31 remaining in overtime for his only basket of the game as the Nets inched closer to a playoff spot with a crucial 92-90 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks.

New Jersey has gone 22-19 since a disastrous 5-17 start and pulled within two games of the Bucks and idle Orlando Magic for the final playoff berth in the Eastern Conference.

New Jersey improved to 3-0 against Milwaukee this season and will win a tiebreaker if the clubs finish deadlocked for a playoff spot. The teams have only one game remaining against each other.

"It's an unbelievably big win as far as the standings and in terms of confidence, but also in terms of the tiebreaker," Van Horn said.

"We still want to hold our breath under water," New Jersey guard Stephon Marbury added. "We're not out of the hole yet. When everyone has the same record, that's when we can come up for air."

After Harris' 3-pointer gave New Jersey a one-point lead, Van Horn, who had 27 points and 12 rebounds, hit 1-of-2 from the line to make it 92-90 with 10.2 seconds remaining.

Milwaukee had a chance to win, but former Net Sam Cassell missed an off-balance 3-pointer with two seconds left and time expired in the scramble for the rebound.

"Glenn (Robinson) was the option," Milwaukee coach George Karl said. "He became wide open and he fell down."

"I wasn't ready for the ball," Cassell added. "I was looking at the shot clock. I finally got the ball. I was trying to regroup. The ball bounced out and I didn't have my balance. We had this game, we just couldn't finish it."

The Bucks were held scoreless after Cassell drilled a jumper to give Milwaukee a 90-88 lead with 2:45 remaining in overtime. Cassell scored 23 points and Tim Thomas added 20.

Harris hit two foul shots with 16 seconds left in the fourth quarter to give New Jersey an 84-82 lead, but a layup by Thomas five seconds later forced overtime.

After taking the in-bounds pass near midcourt, Thomas easily cut around Van Horn for the tying basket. Marbury missed a 12-foot runner in the lane for the Nets with one second left in regulation.

Marbury contributed 19 points for New Jersey, which was playing its first game since Williams suffered a broken bone in his left foot in practice on Wednesday, ending his comeback attempt.

The final three minutes of the fourth quarter and overtime featured seven lead changes as neither club played as if it wanted the victory.

Milwaukee took an 82-78 lead on Ray Allen's hook in the lane with 1:36 left in regulation, but Marbury answered with a 3-point play before Jamie Feick made 1-of-2 from the line to tie it at 82-82 with 38 seconds left.

"I think having as many close games as we've had this year has made us a better team when it comes down to the stretch," Feick said.

New Jersey gave Milwaukee a chance late in overtime as Van Horn missed his second foul shot with 10 seconds left before Kendall Gill came up empty from the line three seconds later.

However, Milwaukee could not overcome 22 turnovers and just 43 percent (37-of-87) shooting from the field.

After routing the Bucks, 108-80, and the Magic, 129-91, in their previous two games, the Nets had a five-day break. They appeared rusty following the long layoff, trailing 41-39 at the intermission.

"We were rusty at the beginning, but those are the games you have to win," Marbury said. "We got off to a slow start, but eventually we picked it up."

Marbury handed out 11 assists and Feick grabbed 10 rebounds for the Nets, who matched a season high with their fourth straight victory.
