Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- For the second time in three days, the Milwaukee Bucks had the last shot against the Philadelphia 76ers and a chance to win. Once again, the Bucks failed.

Dikembe Mutombo led a balanced scoring attack with 22 points and grabbed eight rebounds as the Sixers edged the Bucks, 92-90, and moved into a tie with Charlotte for fifth place in the Eastern Conference.

The win was the second in just over 48 hours for the 76ers over the Bucks. On Sunday, Ray Allen missed a potential game-winning 3-pointer as Philadelphia posted an 89-87 victory at the First Union Center.

On Tuesday, Eric Snow hit a jumper to give Philadelphia a 90-81 advantage with 2:44 to play. But Milwaukee climbed within 91-90 when Anthony Mason made 1-of-2 free throws with 31 seconds left.

Snow missed a layup, but Mutombo grabbed the rebound and was fouled. After Mutombo made 1-of-2 free throws with 7.4 seconds remaining, the Bucks called timeout. Greg Anthony missed an open 3-point attempt from the left corner, but Mason grabbed the rebound and passed it to Tim Thomas, who had a clean look from just inside the top of the key.

But Thomas badly missed his jump shot, and the Bucks lost for the sixth time in seven games.

"I thought Ray made a great read on the last play," Bucks caoch George Karl said. "He found Greg wide open on the baseline and he just missed the shot. Timmy got a good look off of the rebound but he may have rushed it a little bit."

"They made a switch defensively when Ray caught the inbounds and I got a good look down on the baseline," Anthony said. "I just missed the shot."

Matt Harpring added 16 points and 10 rebounds and Aaron McKie chipped in 16 points for the Sixers (41-36), who improved to 5-4 since losing All-Star guard Allen Iverson to a broken bone in his left hand on March 22.

"I think both teams came out with a sense of urgency early in the game," McKie said. "We made the plays down the stetch that won the game. Dikembe was big for us under the basket getting the putbacks and making his free throws when it counted."

Mutombo, who skipped the team's shootaround earlier in the day, shot 6-of-10 from the field and 10-of-14 from the line.

"I was just trying to save my knees for the game," Mutombo said. "I told Coach (Larry Brown) I didn't know how my body was going to react. I wanted to wait until the game started. It was nice to be involved (in the offense). I was more patient with myself."

Sam Cassell had 19 points, Glenn Robinson 18 and Mason 15 for the Bucks (39-38), who have lost 14 of 19, falling into a tie with Toronto for seventh place in the East.

"We all are just trying to keep this thing afloat right now," Allen said. "We need to stay on the same page and focus in on what we have to do every night. The little things killed us again tonight. It's frustrating. We can sit around and talk about winning all day long but we need to go out and get a win."

Philadelphia remained two games behind Orlando (43-34) for fourth place and home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs after the Magic defeated New York on Tuesday.

"It was a good win," Brown said. "I think we got a little bit tentative with the eight-point lead and didn't execute well. Dikembe made some huge plays, Eric Snow made some huge plays and we just kind of found a way."

"I think it was really big," Snow said of the victory. "Last game and this game are really crucial for the reason, jockeying for playoff position, thinking about tiebreakers and we were able to pull it out."
