Game Story

CHICAGO (Ticker) -- That thud was the sound of the first nail being driven into the coffin of the Milwaukee Bucks.

Rookie Ron Artest's basket with 10 seconds remaining lifted the lowly Chicago Bulls to a 90-88 victory over the Bucks, whose playoff hopes were dealt a serious blow.

With the score tied at 88-88, Artest posted up to the left of the lane and converted the decisive running flip. Milwaukee guard Sam Cassell had a chance to tie it in the waning seconds but misfired on a 19-footer.

Glenn Robinson scored 24 points for the Bucks, who dropped 2 1/2 games behind idle Orlando for the eighth and final playoff spot with seven games remaining.

Rookie Elton Brand had 20 points and 13 rebounds and Hersey Hawkins also scored 20 points for the Bulls, who won for only the third time in 16 outings.

The Bulls were clinging to an 83-82 lead in the final two minutes when Artest was fouled in the act of shooting by Robinson. But Bucks center Ervin Johnson lightly pushed the Bulls' rookie, who fell to the floor, drawing a technical foul.

"I don't fall that easy," Artest said. I don't know what he did, whether he pushed me. ... But that is how the refs took it."

"I just lost my balance and (Artest) was the only guy close to me," Johnson explained. "That's when the ref calls a "T" on me. The ref thought I shoved him intentionally. It wound up being a four-point play."

Robinson became irate over what had been called and received a tecnical of his own. Hawkins hit both technical foul shots and Artest converted two on the original foul call, putting Chicago ahead 87-82 with 1:38 left.

Ray Allen scored the next six points of the contest, the last coming on a pair of free throws with 35 seconds left to put Milwaukee on top 88-87. Bulls forward Chris Carr hit one of two from the line to tie the score, setting up Artest's heroics.

The Bucks still have two games left with Orlando and will likely need to win both if they are to make the playoffs.

"It looks like now we'll have to go kick Orlando's butt, which is probably the way it should be," Milwaukee coach George Karl said. "This loss makes it imperative that we go out and beat Orlando in the two games coming up. It looks like it will come down to Monday night against Orlando."

"No, we didn't take them lightly," Johnson said. "This is a big blow to us but we're not out of it. It shows you can't take anyone lightly."

Brand scored 12 points in the first half as Chicago forged to a 46-42 lead. Hawkins netted eight points in the third quarter and Brand added six as the Bulls took 70-64 advantage entering the final period.

"We really don't have anything to lose, so we are not going to tighten up," Hawkins said. "I think everyone expects to beat us. I like George Karl, we had some good times in Seattle. To beat him, I have some mixed feelings. I would like to see them make the playoffs because of George."
