Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- The San Antonio Spurs decided to get in a jump-shooting contest with the Milwaukee Bucks. Bad idea.

Glenn Robinson scored 23 points, including a 12-footer that snapped a tie with 49 seconds remaining, as the Bucks cooled off the Spurs, 102-98.

San Antonio came in having won 12 of its last 13 games. But it relied less on "Twin Towers" Tim Duncan and David Robinson and more on its perimeter shooting.

Although the Spurs lead the NBA in overall and 3-point shooting, they were trying to go shot for shot with the Bucks, who rely almost exclusively on an outside attack and have perhaps the top jump-shooter in the game in Robinson.

"You ain't gonna win playing us like that," Bucks guard Sam Cassell said. "No one's gonna outshoot us. You just can't do it."

"They have four guys who can really shoot the ball," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "It's very difficult to defend them when they're passing. That's their strength."

After Terry Porter's 3-pointer gave the Spurs a 98-98 tie with 1:10 remaining, Robinson backed in his defender, turned and fired a jumper to give the Bucks the lead for good.

San Antonio turned it over and Robinson missed a jumper. But Ervin Johnson grabbed the offensive rebound and the Spurs had to foul. Tim Thomas made 1-of-2 from the line with 10.9 seconds left and after Derek Anderson missed a 3-pointer, Sam Cassell sealed it by sinking 1-of-2 free throws with 2.4 seconds to go.

Robinson made 10-of-19 shots, including a 3-pointer. Ray Allen also scored 23 points, sinking five 3-pointers. Cassell scored 22 points on 10-of-17 shooting and added nine assists. Thomas came off the bench to make four 3-pointers and score 19 points.

The Bucks, who are third in the league in 3-point shooting, were 11-of-19 from beyond the arc and 53 percent (42-of-79) overall.

"They've been playing so many games that we didn't expect them to run with us, but they did and that's just we wanted and we were able to pull it out," Thomas said.

Anderson scored 25 points, making four 3-pointers. The Spurs made 9-of-15 3-point attempts and shot 47 percent (39-of-83) overall.

Duncan had 23 points and 13 rebounds and Robinson added 15 and seven. However, they combined to make just 15-of-41 shots.

"They shot incredibly, incredibly well tonight," Duncan said. "Between Glenn, Ray, Sam and Tim off the bench, they got guys who can hurt you making shots. It came down to me going 10-of-26, though."

Antonio Daniels and Porter tried to help the Spurs keep pace. Daniels scored 17 points on 7-of-8 shooting, including 3-of-3 from the circle. Porter added 11 points and made a pair of 3-pointers.

"They were on fire tonight," Daniels said. "They have a very high-profile offense and when they're clicking it's tough to beat them."

The Spurs led 79-76 entering the fourth quarter but the Bucks opened the period with a 9-2 run. Thomas started it with a 3-pointer and Cassell closed it with a three-point play off a jumper, making it 85-81.

"The three has been falling for me, so I'm just going to keep taking it," Thomas said.

Duncan, defended 1-on-1 by Johnson for most of the game, gave San Antonio a 91-90 lead with a post move with 4:17 to go. Allen responded with a 3-pointer.

Thomas and Porter traded 3-pointers, setting up Glenn Robinson's winning shot.

Jason Caffey had 11 rebounds and Johnson grabbed nine for the Bucks, who snapped a two-game home skid and improved to 20-8 at the Bradley Center. Milwaukee's bench outscored San Antonio's, 26-7.

Daniels scored 11 points and Anderson 10 in the first quarter as the Spurs opened a 32-26 lead. But they trailed 54-50 at the half as Cassell scored eight points in the second period.
