Game Story

ATLANTA (Ticker) -- In the first regular season game at new Philips Arena, the Milwaukee Bucks made it 2-for-2 in spoiling home openers as Ray Allen scored 30 points in a 119-109 victory over the Atlanta Hawks.

After splitting home games between Alexander Coliseum and the Georgia Dome the last two seasons, the Hawks finally moved into the gleaming $213 million downtown facility, hoping to create a boost in what has been an apathetic fan base. However, the non-sellout crowd of 18,514 saw their retooled team drop to 0-2.

The Bucks posted a 98-93 victory over Houston on Tuesday as Sam Cassell scored 35 points. Tonight, Cassell and Allen combined for 54 points and helped pressure Atlanta into 26 turnovers.

"If we keep the same intensity, we will be good," Cassell said. "The new arena is nice. I like it and fans should support this team a little better."

The Hawks stayed with Milwaukee through three quarters, trailing 86-80, but the Bucks steadily built the lead, opening a 109-92 cushion as Dale Ellis drained a 3-pointer with 5:17 to play.

Tim Thomas had 17 points and eight rebounds for Milwaukee, which shot a scorching 92 percent (33-of-36) from the line. Glenn Robinson added 16 points for the Bucks, who open their home slate Saturday night against the Detroit Pistons.

"We are definitelty off to a great start," Allen said. "Eighty games left and it is important that we keep focus. We can't get too happy. We have to create a mystique about our team and let them know we are for real."

The Hawks christened their new building with a sloppy effort as newcomers Isaiah Rider and Jim Jackson each committed six turnovers.

Milwaukee took the crowd out of the game in the fourth quarter, scoring 19 points in a 5:16 span. Ellis and Thomas each had five points during the 19-10 run, which opened up a 90-82 lead.

Benefiting from the new rules designed to help the offense, the Bucks hit 11-of-12 free throws in the fourth quarter to bury Atlanta.

The Hawks led 37-34 in the second quarter and drew even at 76-76 with 3:33 to play in the third period but hurt themselves with turnovers and hit only 21-of-30 free throws.

"Turnovers have been a nemesis for us," Hawks coach Lenny Wilkens said. "We just have to take care of the ball better. We have stretches where we played real well and there are stretches where we don't take care of the ball."

Jackson and Rider, acquired over the summer from Portland for Steve Smith, each scored 19 points.

Rider, who missed the season opener due to the death of his grandmother, had 10 points in the fourth period but shot only 7-of-22 from the field in the new building.

"It was fun," he said. "The fans had mixed emotions, but after a while I heard them swinging my way.

"A couple of days kind of took my shot away. I was a little rusty. I have to be aggressive. Tonight, it seemed like no one was aggressive. It seemed like eveybody was flat, very tentative and we can't have that."

The Hawks were hot otherwise, shooting 34-of-61 (56 percent). Roshown McLeod scored 16 points and Bimbo Coles and rookie Jason Terry added 13 apiece.
