Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- George Karl has brought a winning attitude to the Milwaukee Bucks.

Fresh off signing a $71 million contract, Ray Allen scored 19 points as the Milwaukee Bucks remained unbeaten on the young season with a 95-75 pounding of the New Jersey Nets.

Glenn Robinson added 18 points for the Bucks, who never trailed and led by as many as 26 points in the second half. Milwaukee, the last team in the league to play a home game, has won its first three games for the first time since also starting 3-0 in the 1996-97 season.

Karl took over the coaching duties from Chris Ford in the offseason after compiling a 384-150 record with the Seattle SuperSonics the last seven seasons. Karl never missed the postseason with the SuperSonics and guided them to NBA Finals in 1996.

I'm very proud of them but we've got to be composed because we have a lot of work to do," said Karl, who is trying to guide the Bucks to the playoffs for the first time since 1991.

Scott Burrell scored 17 points and Kerry Kittles added 15 off the bench for the shorthanded Nets, who have dropped three of their first four games. Although Kittles returned, the Nets played without injured point guards Sam Cassell and backup Eric Murdock. They were also without center Rony Seikaly.

After Burrell hit a jumper to bring the Nets within 15-13 with 2:28 left in the first quarter, the Bucks scored seven straight points to open a 22-13 advantage. Dell Curry scored all five of his points in the surge.

Milwaukee still led 36-31 with 2:24 left in the opening half before closing with a 9-2 burst to open a 45-33 cushion. Robinson scored 12 points and Allen had 11 in the half.

"We're playing together and backing each other up," Robinson said. "There is no individual under George. Our defense right now is creating a lot of opportunities for us."

Leading 51-39, the Bucks took advantage off poor ballhandling by the Nets and reeled off a 9-2 spurt. Allen and Terrell Brandon scored the last four points of the run after converting steals into layups that pushed the lead to 60-41 with 5:11 left in the third quarter.

Brandon finished with eight points and 10 assists for the Bucks, who took advantage of the depleted Nets backcourt by forcing 22 turnovers that they turned into 24 points.

"It was not a pretty game. I'm disappointed," New Jersey coach John Calipari said. "They played like we did a year ago. We want to get back to the way we play. We were playing a game without a point guard and we refused to drive."

The Nets got within 70-58 when Kittles hit a jumper with 9:25 left. The Bucks used a 21-7 burst, capped by Allen's dunk, to take their biggest lead at 91-65 with 2:31 remaining. Allen hit 6-of-9 shots and had four steals.

Vinny Del Negro added 12 points and former Net Armen Gilliam had 11 off the bench for the Bucks, who shot 48 percent (39-of-81) and held a 46-41 rebounding edge.

"We have a lot of weapons offensively," Karl said. "If you had told me we were going to ourebound them tonight, I would've said you were crazy. But we did."

Keith Van Horn netted 13 points and grabbed 11 rebounds for New Jersey. The Nets shot 36 percent (30-of-84).
