GAME RECAP

Ray Allen and Terrell Brandon each scored 21 points and the Milwaukee Bucks won their fourth consecutive home game, 87-79 over the struggling Detroit Pistons.

Glenn Robinson added 17 points and Tyrone Hill grabbed 17 rebounds for the Bucks, who have won all of their home games since a loss to New Jersey in their opener at the Bradley Center.

"It was a strange evening. Our defensive intensity was tremendous, but we couldn't throw balls into the ocean," said Milwaukee coach Chris Ford, referring to his team's 30-of-78 shooting from the field. "Our defense allowed us to win tonight's game. It was a good win, but it wasn't pretty."

Brian Williams scored 15 of his season-high 28 points in the fourth quarter for the Pistons, who have lost seven of nine games since a 2-0 start. All-Star forward Grant Hill was slowed by the flu and was just 3-of-12 from the field and 2-of-8 from the line, finishing with eight points in 32 minutes.

"I think our team needs to focus on defense out of the blocks. Everything will fall into place then," said Williams, who also grabbed 10 rebounds. "We've just got to get rid of the kinks. We're used to Grant controlling the game. It's one thing to run a play right in practice, but we need to do it in the game.

"In Chicago, we battled and clawed for a championship. We need to do that here."

Both teams had problems from the field in the first half, with the Bucks shooting under 32 percent (12-for-38) and the Pistons just under 37 percent (11-for-30). Milwaukee had a 31-29 lead at halftime.

The Bucks stretched their lead to 56-46 with 54 seconds left in the third quarter following a layup by Tyrone Hill. They increased it to 67-54 with 8:15 remaining after opening the fourth quarter on an 11-4 spurt, keyed by Allen's five points.

"You must keep shooting and must keep your confidence high and eventually they'll fall in," said Allen. "Tonight was a big test for me, guarding Grant Hill. I give him a great deal of respect for playing with the flu. Many guys in this league wouldn't play, but he did."

Detroit coach Doug Collins pulled Hill from the game but the Pistons went on a 10-0 run, capped by Williams' basket that made it 67-64 with 4:46 remaining.

"I told the guys eventually losing will start hurting," said Collins. "I think everyone knows that Grant makes things happen for us and he's struggling right now. We're awful right now and we're digging a huge hole for ourselves."

The Pistons got as close as three points twice more down the stretch, the last time at 76-73 with 1:30 left following a pair of Theo Ratliff free throws. But they were unable to tie.

"I feel weak to sum it up," said Hill. "I didn't have any energy all week and I thought I would give it a try."

"We continue to play good defense and convert on transition baskets," Robinson said. "The difference between this year and last year is that we're on the same page playing together. Last year, we'd fall apart in the third quarter."
