Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- Eric Snow has done a remarkable job of improving his free-throw shooting. But he still has some work to do. Snow's missed free throw with 2.4 seconds left cost the slumping Philadelphia 76ers a chance to tie the game, and the Milwaukee Bucks held on for a 99-95 victory, their season-high fifth straight triumph. One of the hardest-working players in the NBA, Snow has steadily improved almost all facets of his game since entering the league in 1995. He has diligently lifted his foul shooting, which was an atrocious 27 percent in his sophomore season at Michigan State and under .500 for his collegiate career. Snow came in having made 40 of his last 43 free throws, climbing to 13th in the NBA at 86.6 percent, and made his first three attempts from the line. With Philadelphia trailing, 97-94, Snow baited former 76er Toni Kukoc into a foul outside the 3-point arc with 2.4 seconds remaining. Snow stepped to the line but back-rimmed the first attempt, spitting out an expletive as the Sixers called their last timeout. "I threw myself off. Instead of just going up and (thinking to) just make one at a time, I'm thinking make three," Snow said. "I don't think I had the full concentration of making one at a time. That happens, you miss and it's crucial." "Eric Snow is the best guy in basketball (at) walking under a guy and holding his guy and never (getting) called for a foul," said Bucks coach George Karl, who had Snow in Seattle in the 1995-96 season. "Toni held his ground and put his arms up and they gave him (three free throws). I think it was a home court call and it would have been very difficult if it would have cost us the game." Snow made the second free throw and intentionally missed the third, but Milwaukee's Anthony Mason rebounded and was fouled with 1.6 seconds to go. He made both free throws to seal the win. "No one wants to miss free throws, especially at the end of the game," Snow said. "It's kind of magnified a little more then." Michael Redd scored 22 points and Ray Allen added 21 for the Bucks (19-20), who had just one basket in the final nine minutes and nearly blew a 14-point lead. "I thought we did a great job for most of the game," Karl said. "To almost give it away, then finally finish it off with a four-point win, I think it's a great win." "I always have thought and have said that we're a better team than our record has proven," Allen said. "It's just playing basketball and having the confidence of just doing it." Keith Van Horn scored 22 points and Snow added 18, eight assists and three steals for the Sixers (20-19), who completed a 1-5 homestand with their seventh loss in eight games. Allen scooted around a pair of screens and made a jumper that gave Milwaukee a 93-88 lead with 1:38 left, ending a string of 11 misses by his team. But Van Horn made a long jumper and Aaron McKie sank two foul shots after a pokeaway by Snow, cutting the deficit to 93-92 with 57 seconds to go. Sam Cassell missed a jumper, and Snow had a chance to give the Sixers the lead. But his twisting layup bounced off the back of the rim. Mason rebounded and handed to Cassell, whose two free throws with 16 seconds to play made it 95-92. Kenny Thomas put home McKie's missed 3-pointer with five seconds left and Allen made two free throws, setting up the finish. Cassell scored 12 points and Kukoc and Tim Thomas added 11 apiece for the Bucks, who shot 41 percent (31-of-76) and made 31-of-36 free throws. Mason had nine points and 12 rebounds. Brian Skinner had 17 points and 13 rebounds and Allen Iverson added 17, nine and seven assists for the Sixers, who shot 47 percent (37-of-79) and made 18-of-24 from the line. Iverson made just 6-of-18 shots. Philadelphia's defense was porous in the first half, allowing 60 points on 54 percent shooting by Milwaukee and falling into a 15-point hole. A runner by former Sixer Kevin Ollie and two free throws by Redd made it 87-73 with 8:33 remaining before the Bucks went cold. "It was so bad the first half," Sixers coach Larry Brown said. "It has to be uphill and you have got to play perfect." Snow and Van Horn had two hoops each in a 14-2 burst that made it 89-86 with 4:12 to play. Allen and Mason made free throws before a dunk by Van Horn at the 2:56 mark. "Once it was time to get back into the game, we had exerted so much energy that we just couldn't pull it out," Iverson said.
