GAME RECAP

Glenn Robinson scored five of his 29 points in a decisive fourth-quarter burst as the Milwaukee Bucks erased a 17-point first-half deficit in their season-high fifth straight victory, a 118-110 triumph over the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Terrell Brandon added 22 points and Ray Allen 17 for the Bucks, who are enjoying their longest winning streak since an eight-game run in the 1990-91 season. Milwaukee, which has won three road games during the streak, also climbed over the .500 mark (23-22) for the first time since December 11th.

"This win's big for us," said Brandon. "Any time you have a winning streak going into someone's building, they're very aware of that. We came back and made a run. We stayed focused, and it was our defense that was key for us."

"Mental toughness," said Bucks coach Chris Ford when asked what the key was. "Being down as many as 17 in the first half, and really looking dead in the water, we could have faltered. But we've been in a lot of close games during this stretch, and the guys and I talked about little things. We didn't have a lot of energy and we cleaned that up (in the second half)."

Kevin Garnett scored 26 points and Terry Porter added a season-high 22 for Minnesota, which had a five-game home winning streak snapped. The Timberwolves, playing without injured starting forward Tom Gugliotta, fell to 8-9 all-time against the Bucks.

"We miss Tom a lot -- not offensively, but defensively," said Wolves coach Flip Saunders. "Today, we scored 110 points, and that's usually enough to win a game. The last two games, our defense has been pretty much non-existent. Two nights ago, we gave up 121 points to LA. You can't beat people in this league giving up that many points."

A 15-footer by Porter gave Minnesota its final lead at 98-97 with 4:35 to play, but Robinson answered with a jumper 35 seconds later to trigger a 7-2 run.

Brandon added a 20-footer with 3:10 to play before Minnesota's Tom Hammonds threw down a dunk to make it 101-100. But Robinson took a feed from Armon Gilliam and drove for a layup as he was fouled by Hammonds. He completed the three-point play to put Milwaukee ahead 104-100 with 2:33 left.

The Wolves came within two points on two occasions, the last time at 106-104 on a tip-in by Garnett with 95 seconds left. But Brandon hit a running 15-footer and Robinson added two free throws around a foul shot by Stephon Marbury that gave the Bucks a 110-105 lead with 1:01 to play.

Milwaukee, which shot 12-of-15 from the field in the final 12 minutes, made all eight of its free throws in the last 61 seconds, including four by Michael Curry.

There were 10 lead changes and two ties in the fourth quarter.

"It's something that we have to keep going with," said Allen. "We have to run a ways with this because of a lot of teams. ... like Atlanta, for example, they started off so wonderful, they were on top, and they looked unstoppable. There was a point somewhere they fell apart. They're still playing and still winning games, but they're not as good as they were in the beginning of the season."

Porter and Garnett combined for 13 points in a 17-4 second-quarter run as the Wolves opened a 46-29 lead with 7:02 to play on a layup by Porter. Minnesota still led 60-43 with 42 seconds left and held a 13-point lead at halftime.

Allen, Robinson and Brandon combined for all but two points in a 15-3 run as the Bucks clawed within 65-64 on a driving layup by Brandon with 7:12 left in the third quarter.

Minnesota pushed the lead back to 69-65, but Ricky Pierce scored all nine of his points in an 11-4 run and Milwaukee moved ahead 76-73 on a 12-footer by Robinson with 2:49 left.

The Bucks, who had a season high in points for the second straight game, shot 51 percent (41-of-81) from the field. Brandon also had 12 assists for Milwaukee, which also received 12 points and eight rebounds from Tyrone Hill.

Porter shot 8-of-10 from the field for Minnesota, which made 37-of-78 (47 percent). Sam Mitchell added 11 of his 17 points from the foul line and Garnett grabbed 12 rebounds.

"I felt pretty good today," said Porter, who logged 30 minutes as Minnesota continues to operate without starting guard Chris Carr. "When they need me, I'm ready. I've always tried to take care of my body. I'm one of the healthy bodies, and I just try to contribute any way I can."
