GAME RECAP

Kerry Kittles scored 19 points and Sam Cassell and Keith Van Horn added 18 apiece as the New Jersey Nets jumped out to a big lead before holding on for their fifth straight win, 103-92 over the Milwaukee Bucks.

Kendall Gill had 17 points and Jayson Williams chipped in 16 and 10 rebounds for the Nets, whose winning streak is their longest since winning five straight from February 13th-21st, 1996.

Overall, the Nets are 8-2 in their last 10 games and 19-2 when scoring more than 100 points.

"We're 10 games over (.500) now and that feels good," Williams said. "We have to pile up wins now because its going to be tough in April. Everyone is excited now about this team."

Glenn Robinson led Milwaukee with 30 points and Ray Allen added 24 and tied a career-high with 10 rebounds. The Bucks, who learned before the game that starting point guard Terrell Brandon had a walking cast put on his injured left ankle and would be lost for another two weeks, fell to 0-2 at New Jersey this season.

"Without a true point guard, we really had to attack the two (guard) and press them," Van Horn said. "No matter what you say, the two guard never handles as well as the point. We kept attacking them and did not let up."

The Nets led, 2-0, but lost Van Horn when he was poked in the eye by Tyrone Hill 30 seconds into the contest. New Jersey responded by going on a 14-4 run capped by Cassell's 17-foot jumper with 6:40 remaining in the first quarter.

New Jersey closed the opening quarter by going on a 12-2 run over the final 3:49 to take a 34-15 lead. The Nets converted 11 turnovers into 19 points in the frame.

"We were just very impatient I think with the ball and that caused a lot of turnovers," Allen said.

After a 20-footer by Elliot Perry to start the second quarter, Williams answered with a jumper and a layup as the Nets took thier biggest lead, 38-17, with 10:51 remaining in the half. The Bucks got as close as 14, trailing 58-44 at the break.

"We just kept pressing them, that was the difference," Williams said. "We were pressing them all over the court and you can cause turnovers when you do that. We outquicked them and wore them down."

Midway through the third quarter, Milwaukee started coming back. Trailing 72-55 with 5:48 left in the third quarter, the Bucks went on an 11-2 run.

Andrew Lang had a dunk and Allen followed with a driving layup. After Cassell hit a long jumper, Robinson sank a pair of baskets and Allen drilled a three-pointer, cutting the deficit to eight, 74-66, with 2:27 remaining.

"We were playing pretty good defense at that point, but we were not getting anything going offensively," Allen said. "We had buckets here and there, but we never picked up a big run to get us back in the game."

Two free throws by Robinson drew Milwaukee within six, 78-72, with 11:31 to play in the game. But former Buck Sherman Douglas scored four of his eight points during an 8-1 run to restore New Jersey's double-digit advantage.
