Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- The San Antonio Spurs' domination of the Central Division this season finally extends to the Milwaukee Bucks. Malik Rose scored a career-high 34 points and Tim Duncan hit four key free throws in the final 31 seconds as the Spurs scored the game's final eight points to defeat the Bucks, 105-102. After Sam Cassell drained a 3-pointer with 1:16 left to open a 102-97 lead fo Milwaukee, Rose had a bucket and Duncan sank four consecutive foul shots, giving the Spurs a 103-102 edge with 12 seconds to play. A miss by the Bucks led to two free throws by San Antonio's Steve Kerr with 3.9 seconds left. Gary Payton had a chance to tie it in the final seconds, but his open look from beyond the arc was off line. "Malik Rose was incredible tonight. He really carried us the entire game, and he found a way to help us pull off a win," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "It was a tough game," Rose said. "We were not able to stop them, but we were able to get the win." The smallish Bucks had no answer inside for either Rose or Duncan, who scored 25 points and grabbed 15 rebounds. The Spurs ended a six-game losing streak to Milwaukee and improved to 10-1 against the Central Division. San Antonio's third straight win leaves it 3 1/2 games behind Western Conference-leading Dallas in the Midwest Division. Cassell scored 26 points while Toni Kukoc and Desmond Mason netted 24 apiece for the Bucks. Kukoc fell one shy of his career high with six 3-pointers. "Sam did a great job of finding Gary at the end, but the shot didn't fall," Milwaukee coach George Karl said. "Malik Rose is probably the guy who beat us. We couldn't contain his physical play and aggressiveness all night." The loss leaves the eight-place Bucks a game ahead of Washington in the scrum for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. The Bucks took an 81-74 lead with 36 seconds left in the third quarter on Mason's two free throws. They held the lead through the fourth until Tony Parker's two free throws gave the Spurs a 96-95 edge with 2:44 to play. Ervin Johnson's follow shot with 1:45 to go put Milwaukee back on top, and after Rose's free throw, Cassell sank the Bucks' 11th 3-pointer. Parker scored 13 points for San Antonio, which shot 50 percent (38-of-76) from the field and won for the 11th time in its past 12 road games. Rose went 13-of-21 from the floor and pulled down seven of his nine boards on the offensive glass. "He (Rose) was incredible all night, he got on the offensive glass and defensively, I thought he was solid, too," Duncan said. The 6-11 Johnson scored just two points in 23 minutes, and committed the foul that put Duncan at the line for the go-ahead free throws. "I was trying to take over the game, but those guys did a great job of defending me," Duncan said. "Luckily, I got fouled a couple of times and got a chance to go the the free throw line." After Milwaukee's Michael Redd missed a 3-pointer with 4.4 seconds left and Kerr sank his free throws, Payton freed himself up in the in right corner. But the point guard could not duplicate the heroics that sent Saturday's eventual win over Golden State into overtime. "We won that game for 47 minutes and let it get away at the end," Mason said. "We need to learn to finish games. We aren't in a position to give away games that we have won." Payton finished with 20 points and nine assists for the Bucks, who went 11-of-17 from 3-point range and shot 50 percent (38-of-76) overall. The Spurs took a 71-70 third quarter lead on a 3-pointer by Stephen Jackson with 4:33 remaining, but Mason scored nine points in an 11-2 burst to end the period.
