MILWAUKEE, Nov. 8 (UPI) -- Glenn Robinson scored 26 points and Anthony Mason made a big defensive play in the final seconds against his former team Thursday night as the Milwaukee Bucks remained unbeaten with an 86-82 victory over the Miami Heat.
Robinson made 10-of-16 shots overall and scored 11 points during a 22-10 third-quarter run as Milwaukee opened its largest lead, 64-52. But Miami scored the final 11 points of the period and stayed within striking distance until the final minutes.
The Bucks took an 84-82 lead on a free throw by Tim Thomas with three seconds left and Miami put the ball in the hands of Eddie Jones, who scored 29 points and made the winning shot against Seattle on Tuesday.
Jones ran through two screens and caught the inbounds pass. He turned to shoot but found Mason right in his face and stumbled, resulting in a traveling violation. Sam Cassell made a pair of free throws to seal the win.
Milwaukee improved to 4-0 for the first time since 1971, when it opened the season with seven straight wins.
Mason finished with eight points and 10 rebounds and Cassell had nine points and nine assists. Ray Allen scored 22 points despite 7-of-20 shooting.
Rod Strickland scored 13 points and Anthony Carter added 11 and 11 assists for Miami, which played without center Alonzo Mourning, who is suffering from food poisoning and did not make the trip.
