Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- Tim Thomas and the New York Knicks had a much better second half than Keith Van Horn and the Milwaukee Bucks. Thomas scored 18 of his 20 points after the break as the Knicks erased a 26-point third-quarter deficit to stun the Bucks, 103-100. Van Horn, whom the Knicks traded to the Bucks for Thomas in a three-team deal on February 15, was held scoreless in the second half after scoring 18 points to stake Milwaukee to a 61-39 halftime lead. "It's definitely a disappointing loss," Van Horn said. "There's no explanation as to why we should have let that game slip away. We were up 26 points - we just can't let that happen." Milwaukee, which could have moved into a tie with New Orleans for fourth place in the Eastern Conference, scored the first four points in the second half but allowed the Knicks to storm back and cut the deficit to 80-74 entering the fourth quarter. "I guess I was a little wild (at the half)," Knicks coach Lenny Wilkens said. "I was a little (upset) because I didn't think that defensively, we didn't make the kind of commitment we talked about. I didn't care if they fouled out; we needed to come out and set an aggressive tone." New York trailed, 93-91, before embarking on a 9-0 run, taking a 100-93 lead on a basket by Stephon Marbury with 1:08 left. After Michael Redd sank two free throws to get Milwaukee within 101-100 with 15.7 seconds remaining, Thomas made a pair from the line to restore a 3-point cushion. "For us it was a matter of having pride and getting back in the game," Thomas said. "I knew I was struggling, but I just turned it up on both ends in the second half." "He was huge - there had to be a lot of pressure on him coming back here," Wilkens said. "He played within himself; he didn't try and overdo (it), and he let it come to him. I thought it was great. Once he got going, we ran stuff for him." Redd briefly was open for a 3-pointer in the waning seconds but passed to Toni Kukoc, who hit the right side of the rim with just under three seconds left, cementing another giant collapse for the Bucks, who blew a 20-point lead at Philadelphia on Monday. "At halftime we talked about knowing they were going to make a run," Bucks coach Terry Porter said. "We just had to be poised enough to respond to their run, and we didn't." "I felt that we came out ready, but this is happening all too often for us," Van Horn said. "We get big leads and we don't sustain them. We need to figure out what's causing this because if we get a 20-point lead, we should win that game." Marbury had 21 points and 16 assists for the Knicks, who squandered a 14-point lead with 10 minutes left in a double-overtime loss at Philadelphia on Friday. New York (30-37) moved into seventh place in the East. "It was a great comeback for us," said Marbury, whose 3-pointer with 2:01 left gave New York its first lead, 96-93. "We played extremely hard at the end. Guys were making shots and we stepped up our defense." Allan Houston scored 16 points and former Buck Vin Baker, in his second game with New York, chipped in 12 and 10 rebounds off the bench for the Knicks, who overcame a 51-38 rebounding disadvantage by committing just nine turnovers and holding the Bucks to 42 percent shooting (36-of-86). Brian Skinner had 21 points and 13 rebounds to pace the Bucks, who also received 15 and 12 from Joe Smith. Redd had 19 points but made just 6-of-17 shots.
