Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- Ray Allen scored 14 of his 27 points in the fourth quarter, leading the Milwaukee Bucks to a 97-91 victory over the Seattle SuperSonics. Allen made four of his five 3-pointers in the final period, including three in the last 6 1/2 minutes. Milwaukee never trailed after Allen's third 3-pointer snapped a 77-77 tie with 6:26 remaining. Tim Thomas added 19 points for the Bucks, who improved to 3-2 on a season-high eight-game homestand and beat the Sonics for just the fifth time in the last 21 meetings. "This wasn't an easy win," Allen said. "Seattle is a tough team to play. They are athletic and can put up points. Tonight we did a much better job of rebounding and playing defense. It's a quality win going into the (All-Star) break." Gary Payton scored 27 points for Seattle, which was coming off Wednesday's 114-74 loss in Boston, the fourth-worst setback in team history. The Sonics completed an 0-3 road trip. "Ray Allen came down and hit big threes that hurt us," Payton said. "We need to come down and execute a little better. We turned the ball over a little bit more than we should at a crucial time." However, Milwaukee coach George Karl was impressed with the Sonics, especially after Wednesday's embarrassing loss. "It's a much harder win than you (in the media) think it was," said Karl, a former Sonics' coach. "Seattle played hard after what happened to them last night, and we had to win the game." Milwaukee point guard Sam Cassell scored 11 points and surpassed the 9,900 mark for his career in the first quarter. Michael Redd contributed 15 off the bench for the Bucks. The Bucks (25-23) have won 11 of their last 14 games and reached the All-Star break tied with New Orleans for third place in the Central Division. "There is a lot of basketball to be played," Thomas said. "As of right now, though, we need to concentrate on winning games at home. We need to focus on defense, and that's what will win us ballgames." Seattle was able to forget about Wednesday's nightmare, taking a 25-23 lead after the first quarter. The contest was close thoughout, with the Bucks rallying for a 48-45 halftime advantage. Payton scored 10 points in the third period, helping the Sonics take a 68-67 lead into the fourth quarter. But he was held to six points over the final 12 minutes. "Kevin's defense on Payton in the second half, I felt, was something we had to stick with, and Ray had one those nights from the 3-point line and we won the game," Karl said, referring to Kevin Ollie. Payton's layup with 6:45 left forged the final tie at 77-77, but Allen and Redd combined for Milwaukee's first 22 points in the fourth quarter. Anthony Mason's jumper capped a 6-0 run and gave Milwaukee a 92-83 lead with 2:06 left. Rashard Lewis, who had 18 points, converted a layup to get Seattle within 94-91 with 20 seconds remaining. But Ollie made a pair from the line less than a second later and Brent Barry threw the ball out of bounds on the Sonics' ensuing possession. Allen hit 1-of-2 from the line with 14 seconds to play to complete the scoring. "Closing games, taking care of the ball, coming up with stops, those have been a few things that have affected us during the season," Seattle coach Nate McMillan said. "We just aren't ready to win." Seattle shot 46.5 percent (33-of-71) from the field and held Milwaukee under 42 percent (31-of-74). However, the Bucks converted 11-of-23 from beyond the arc, compared to 6-of-10 for the Sonics.
