Game Story

MIAMI (Ticker) -- Sam Cassell stole a game the Miami Heat did not seem to want.

Cassell grabbed aside Anthony Ma뚁arm to win a jump ball with 5.3 seconds left, then hit a 3-pointer with nine-tenths of a second to go, capping a rally from a 22-point fourth-quarter deficit and giving the Milwaukee Bucks a 102-101 victory over the Heat.

Although Miami allowed Milwaukee to score 22 straight points in the fourth quarter, the Heat still had a chance to win after Tim Hardaway scored seven of his 23 points in the final 1:38, giving them a 101-97 lead with 11 seconds left.

Ray Allen drove the baseline for a layup off an inbounds play that brought the Bucks within 101-99 with 8.9 seconds left and Milwaukee immediately fouled Anthony Carter.

The Heat guard missed both free throws but the 6-8 Mason seemed to have controlled the rebound before Cassell tied him up with 5.3 seconds to play.

On the jump ball, the 6-2 Cassell hung on Mason's arm and flipped the ball to Glenn Robinson, who called timeout with 3.8 seconds left.

"We were down in the trenches. It's a game we had to have and we got it," was all Cassell would say about the play.

The Bucks inbounded to Cassell at the top of the key. He took one dribble to left and Carter stepped away from him, expecting a drive. Cassell drilled the game-winner and broke into a wild smile.

"George (Bucks coach George Karl) had a lot of a misdirection going on," Cassell said. "They made a hell of a pass, and I just made the shot. I didn't want to go into overtime. I know for a fact that if I'd made a two, we wouldn't have had the energy to win the game in overtime."

After Milwaukee seemed to give away the game in the third period and the Heat took an 85-63 lead with 10:52 left in the game, Lindsey Hunter scored 15 of his 23 points in a 24-2 run in the fourth quarter that tied tied it, 87-87, with 4:27 left.

It seemed that Hardaway would pick up the Heat. He nailed a 3-pointer with 1:39 left that put Miami back on top after the Bucks had gone ahead 93-92 on a pair of free throws by Glenn Robinson.

Ray Allen tied the score when he hit a pair of free throws with 1:24 left but Eddie Jones answered with a spinning scoop shot with 1:09 to go.

After Allen was called for traveling, Hardaway scored on a half-hook in the post for a 99-95 lead with 37 seconds to play.

Robinson posted up Brian Grant to bring the Bucks within a basket, but Hardaway drew a foul on Allen and hit both free throws, giving Miami what seemed like a secure lead with 11 seconds to go.

"We didn't finish, I mean we did not finish the game at all," Miami coach Pat Riley said. "We let Lindsey get off, and once we let him get off, we let everyone else get off. Then we got a horrible, horrible call at the end. I mean it's o,Ẃwhat happened with Anthony, but we let them all the way back. It's ridiculous, absolutely ridiculous.

"A team that is in dire straits and needs a win, to allow a team to come back 41-20 in the fourth quarter on you is just ridiculous."

The Heat, who lost their fourth straight game, put together their longest scoring run of the season, going on a 15-0 charge in the third period, seeming to break open the game.

But Hunter, hitting 5-of-6 from 3-point range in the fourth quarter, bringing back the Bucks in a hurry.

"It felt good," said Hunter, who scored 23 points in 27 minutes. "Coach told me to keep shooting. Tonight anytime I was behind the 3-point line, I felt like I could make it."

Robinson scored 22 points and Allen added 21 for the Bucks, who got 14 rebounds from Ervin Johnson.

Jones led Miami with 26 points and Bruce Bowen scored a career-high 20 but missed all his shots in the fourth quarter. Grant scored 15 points and grabbed 12 rebounds.

"I have no comment about the officiating," Bowen said. "You can't always look to place the blame. We're the ones who gave up a 20-point lead."

After trailing by 11 points twice in the first half, the Bucks clawed back within 53-51 on Robinson's 19-footer with 8:26 left in the third quarter.

Bowen nailed a wide open 3-pointer, Grant knocked down a 10-footer from the left baseline, Jones had a dunk, Hardaway and Bowen drilled back-to-back 3-pointers and Hardaway hit a pair of free throws in the run, which put Miami up 68-51 with 5:08 left.

During the Heat's run, the Bucks missed 12 straight shots, including three on one possession when they were able to control the offensive boards over the smaller Heat.

Milwaukee shot just 31 percent (8-of-26) in the quarter, which ended with Miami holding an 81-61 lead. The Heat scored the first four points of the fourth quarter, but then their troubles began.

"I think they gave up," Allen said. "I think they thought the game was over. By the fourth quarter, Eddie Jones and Brian Grant were sitting on the bench."

The Bucks won their second straight after losing four in a row. They held off the Magic in Orlando, 104-95, on Monday night.

"Every game our motivation is what we did here in Florida this past week," Allen said. "Florida has been bad for the whole country, but has been good for us."

Miami blew an 11-point first-quarter lead but came back in the second period with an 16-4 run and opened a 51-40 lead on Jones' steal and dunk with 25 seconds left in the half. Bowen hit back-to-back 3-pointers and scored eight points in the run.

The Heat had five steals and blocked five shots in the first half while committZjust four turnovers.

Jones scored six points as the Heat raced out to an 18-7 lead, limiting the Bucks to one rebound over the first five minutes. Mason's hook shot with 7:32 left in the quarter gave the Heat their 11-point lead.

Allen nailed a 3-pointer and then hit a layup, igniting an 8-0 run that brought the Bucks within 18-15 with 4:40 to play in the quarter, and they kept it close until the Heat's half-ending run.
