GAME RECAP

Ray Allen scored 26 points and Glenn Robinson added 22 as the Milwaukee Bucks handed the Denver Nuggets their 13th straight loss, 104-87.

Allen scored half of his points in the third quarter. His jumper gave Milwaukee its largest lead, 64-43, with 6:17 remaining in the period.

Robinson had a free throw and a spinning layup during the deciding 7-0 spurt that built the lead to 91-76 with 4:53 to play. He left the game 1:25 later after suffering an apparent knee injury, but was able to walk off the court under his own power.

Tyrone Hill collected 14 points and 17 rebounds for the Bucks (29-29), who snapped a three-game losing streak to climb back to .500 for the eighth time this season.

"We have 25 games left and it's not getting easier. We need to come out tough Saturday against Utah," Hill said. "You could tell Denver was a poor team because of their intensity. But they're a young team and have a long way to go."

Johnny Newman scored 22 points to pace the Nuggets, whose skid is their second-longest losing streak of the season. Denver opened the season with 12 consecutive defeats, but also had a league record-tying 23-game streak from December 9th-January 23rd.

"It's a tough time right now and it's taking a lot out of us," said Newman. "We just took some shots that didn't drop for us and we weren't playing aggressive enough."

The Nuggets (5-55) easily own the league's worst record and are a dismal 1-30 on the road, having dropped eight straight away from home. They must go 5-17 over their remaining 22 games to avoid matching the worst record in league history, set by the 1972-73 Philadelphia 76ers (9-73).

"Denver does not have a good record, but we were on a three-game losing streak," Allen said. "Games in the NBA aren't given to you; we had to fight."

After a tight first quarter, Milwaukee took control with an 8-1 run to open the second period. Allen sparked that spurt with a 12-footer and Hill capped it with a layup for a 31-22 advantage.

The Bucks built the lead to 48-33 later in the period with an 11-4 run. Robinson had seven points on that burst, including a three-point play to cap it with one minute remaining, and Milwaukee opened a 50-35 halftime lead.

"Our defense was consistent throughout the game," Bucks coach Chris Ford said. "We held them to 25 percent shooting in the first half and that was good. ... It was a much-needed win, which got us back to .500."

Denver trailed 79-64 after three quarters, but opened the fourth period with a 9-2 spurt. LaPhonso Ellis scored four of his 12 points in that run, with his two free throws cutting the deficit to 81-73 with 8:12 to play.

But Hill answered with two free throws to triggerthe deciding spurt and Armon Gilliam capped it with a fast-break layup to increase the advantage to 91-76. Denver got no closer than 13 points thereafter.

"We missed so many good shots," Nuggets coach Bill Hanzlik said. "I give our guys a lot of credit because we came back from 20 and had a chance to win. We called a timeout and just fell apart. We just dug a hole at the beginning of the game and it killed us."

Gilliam contributed 12 points and 11 rebounds off the bench for the Bucks, who made just 2-of-11 three-pointers but hit 32-of-37 free throws. Gilliam and Allen were both 8-of-8 from the line.

Cory Alexander had 16 points and five steals and Anthony Goldwire chipped in 13 points for Denver, which shot an abysmal 32 percent (27-of-84). The Nuggets also were outrebounded, 50-36, in falling to 0-3 on their four-game road trip, which concludes Friday at Atlanta.

"Our record doesn't reflect the hearts of the guys," Alexander said. "We need to play together more and get ready for next year. With our record, people think we can get close but not win it. We need to get more confident as a team."
