Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- The Charlotte Hornets and Milwaukee Bucks both are fighting for playoff position and it looked like it.

David Wesley scored seven of his 24 points in overtime as the Hornets barely held off the Bucks, 109-106, in a game both teams desperately needed to win.

The Hornets (46-33) overcame a 16-point first-quarter deficit only to blow an eight-point lead in the final five minutes of the fourth quarter. Nevertheless, they remained one game behind Philadelphia in the race for fourth place and home-court advantage in the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs.

"I thought we were both going to play a tough game tonight," Hornets coach Paul Silas said. "We have teams chasing us and we're chasing teams just like they do. Games like these help for the playoffs. We have to take advantage of the experience we gain in these games."

The Bucks (39-40) scored just 11 points in the third quarter but used an 11-0 surge late in the fourth to take the lead. They nearly erased a seven-point deficit in the last 40 seconds of the extra session but fell one game behind Orlando in the race for the eighth and final berth in the East.

"It's a tough loss but it's not devastating," Bucks coach George Karl said. "Whether we won or lost tonight we were going to have to beat Orlando in Orlando. And if we do that and take care of the other business we're in."

Eddie Jones scored 29 points for the Hornets, who have won four in a row. He had a club-record seven 3-pointers, including one that forced overtime with 23 seconds to go and another that gave Charlotte a seven-point lead with 2:13 left in overtime.

"This team found a way to win," Wesley said. "We held off a good run by them in the second half and pulled out a victory. It was just a game where each team made their runs and we came out on top."

Glenn Robinson scored a season-high 38 points for the Bucks, who had a three-game winning streak snapped. He scored nine points in the late fourth-quarter surge but missed a jumper from the foul line just before the regulation horn.

"We're still in good shape," Robinson said. "We've got three winnable games that we've gotta get. We've just gotta get the next game (against Washington), take it out on them and if we do that, we still think we're in good position."

Two free throws by Anthony Mason, who had 18 points and eight rebounds, gave Charlotte a 90-82 lead with 4:48 left in the fourth quarter. Robinson made a jumper and a three-point play before Sam Cassell added two free throws to cut the deficit to one point with 3:15 to go.

The teams went scoreless for more than two minutes before Robinson hit consecutive jumpers to give Milwaukee a 93-90 lead with 36 seconds left. Jones answered with his 3-pointer and Robinson missed at the buzzer.

"We called off the double-team (in the post)," Karl said. "I would have preferred to give up the two. You give a great player the opportunity to beat you and he hit it."

Wesley had a pair of jumpers around a basket by Robinson and Elden Campbell dunked before Jones' 3-pointer opened a 102-95 advantage with 2:13 left. Charlotte still held a seven-point lead after Mason scored with 39 second to go before Milwaukee staged a furious rally.

Tim Thomas, who scored 14 points, made a 3-pointer and Wesley and Robinson traded free throws before Darvin Ham stole the ball from Jones and fed Thomas for another 3-pointer to cut the deficit to 107-106 with eight seconds remaining. Wesley made two free throws and the Bucks pushed the ball quickly upcourt but Ray Allen missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer.

Campbell had 15 points and nine rebounds and Derrick Coleman added 10 and 12 for the Hornets, who shot 45 percent (40-of-89) from the field and committed just 10 turnovers.

"When you're on the road you have to take your time and focus in big games," Coleman said.

Allen scored 26 points, Cassell added 16 and 11 assists and Ervin Johnson grabbed 11 boards for the Bucks, who shot 42 percent (37-of-88). Thomas and Scott Williams pulled down nine boards apiece.

Jones also had five steals and did a solid job after halftime on Allen, who scored 13 points in the first quarter to help the Bucks bolt to a 36-20 lead.

The Hornets cut the deficit to 56-46 at the half and held the Bucks to 25 percent (5-of-20) shooting and roaring to a 77-67 lead entering the fourth period.

"When they shot poor in the second half, we were playing good defense," Wesley said. "Their jumpers kept falling and we held our poise and we got a victory."
