Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- Ray Allen scored six of his 19 points in a decisive second-quarter run and the shorthanded Milwaukee Bucks continued to push for playoff position with a 99-86 victory over the reeling Toronto Raptors.

Playing without leading scorer Glenn Robinson and reserve guards Dell Curry and Vinny Del Negro, the Bucks (28-21) still placed seven players in double figures and won for the fourth time in five games, grabbing sixth place in the Eastern Conference.

The Bucks can seal sixth place and a first-round date with the Orlando Magic if they win at New Jersey on Wednesday. If they lose and Philadelphia (27-22) beats Detroit, they will drop to seventh and face Indiana.

Rookie Robert Traylor scored a season-high 15 points, Armon Gilliam added 14 and Sam Cassell 13 for Milwaukee. Cassell, playing only his second game since returning from a sprained ankle, added six assists.

"It felt good out there tonight," Cassell said. "My timing is coming back but it was still tough after not playing for so long. We have a lot of weapons on this team and I was trying to figure them all out tonight."

"Sam was interesting," Bucks coach George Karl said. "He has a special flair for the game."

Rookie Vince Carter scored 26 points for Toronto (22-27), which has lost six in a row. The other Raptors starters managed only 30 points.

"I can't explain this," Carter said. "We just lost our fire. That seems to be how our second half of the season has gone. We can't play a full game. Now we are simply playing for respect."

Robinson, Curry and Del Negro are expected to return for the postseason, which begins this weekend. Milwaukee is in the playoffs for the first time since 1991.

Milwaukee started slowly but rallied in the second quarter behind Allen, who scored half the points in a 12-0 burst that turned an eight-point deficit into a 42-38 lead with 2:48 to go.

A fadeaway 16-footer by Cassell at the buzzer capped a 19-4 run to close the half and give Milwaukee a 49-42 lead.

"It was a good game after the first quarter," Karl said. "We played with a lot of energy. Our bench played hard and well."

"We weren't making our shots at first, so I tried to pick the momentum up, move the ball around, create some plays, and it worked," Cassell said.

The Bucks methodically pulled away in the second half, opening a 77-62 lead on two free throws by Cassell that capped a 9-2 surge with 1:53 remaining in the third quarter.

Toronto made no push in the final period and Milwaukee built the lead to 99-79 on an alley-oop slam by Traylor with 1:36 to play.

Tim Thomas and Michael Curry each scored 11 points and Haywoode Workman added 10 for the Bucks, who shot 45 percent (35-of-78) from the field and made 24-of-27 free throws. Milwaukee held a 44-40 rebounding edge.

Kevin Willis scored 13 points for Toronto, which shot 42 percent (34-of-81) and made 15-of-22 from the line.
