Game Story

CHARLOTTE, North Carolina (Ticker) -- There was never quite enough room for Eddie Jones to be the man in Los Angeles. That obviously is not the case in Charlotte.

Jones led five players in double figures with 33 points and keyed a decisive fourth-quarter run to lift the Charlotte Hornets to a 117-111 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks.

"Eddie provided the big shots when we needed them and I'm happy to have him on my side," Charlotte coach Paul Silas said. "He did everything, but we've come to expect it. It was probably the best overall game I've ever seen him play."

Jones, who left the star-studded Lakers in last season's deal for sharpshooter Glen Rice, entered tonight with a team-leading average of 20.0 points per game before falling just two points shy of his career high.

"I have confidence in everyone here, even the guys on (injured reserve) and even if we're behind," Jones said. "We knew we had to take control of the game. We played defense and contested their shots."

The versatile shooting guard was 12-of-18 from the floor, 6-of-7 at the line, grabbed five rebounds and buried a 3-pointer during an 8-0 run that put Charlotte ahead to stay, 108-100, with 3:31 to play.

"I love that, having the ball when the game is on the line," said Jones. "I think every player wants that."

David Wesley had 20 points, 10 assists and hit a shot from beyond the arc to cap the key burst for Charlotte, which snapped a two-game losing streak.

"Eddie was pretty aggressive tonight," Wesley said. "I feel pretty good right now. If I can have nights like that, I get pretty pumped. I was loving it."

The Hornets (3-2) appeared to have matters in hand when they stormed to a 60-48 lead at the half after thoroughly outplaying the Bucks in the second quarter.

Milwaukee rallied behind Glenn Robinson, who scored 13 of his 24 points in the third quarter as the Bucks overtook the Hornets and grabbed a 90-88 lead entering the final period.

"We hit a lot of shots but just ran out of gas in the fourth quarter," Milwaukee coach George Karl said. "Eddie Jones played extemely well. This is by far the best team we've played so far."

Ray Allen also collected 24 points and Sam Cassell added 21 and nine assists for the Bucks (3-2), who have dropped back-to-back games after a season-opening three-game winning streak.

"We took some bad shots in the fourth quarter," Allen said. "That and our mental breakdowns are what caused us to lose. We didn't play good defense in the post. We need to toughen up defensively."

These teams split four meetings last year with each team winning a pair of road contests.

Bobby Phills and Anthony Mason each scored 20 points for Charlotte, which shot 52 percent (41-of-79) and yielded only 10 points off eight turnovers.

In a game that featured 15 lead changes and 13 ties, it was a pair of free throws by Mason that put Charlotte ahead for good, snapping a 100-100 tie with 5:36 to play.

Jones and Wesley followed with back-to-back 3-pointers to make it 108-100 with 3 1/2 minutes left.

"That 3-pointer I hit seemed to put their backs against the wall," Jones added. "We were trying out best to weather the storm. We lost a couple of games but it's no time to panic. The season just started."

Milwaukee shot 49 percent (38-of-77) and held a 38-32 advantage on the boards.

Robinson, who was held scoreless over the final 12 minutes, scored 10 points during a 34-22 run to open the third quarter as the Bucks erased a 12-point halftime deficit and forged an 82-82 tie on Cassell's 16-footer with 3:10 left in the period.

"When we made that run in the third quarter, we should have been up 12 instead of just fighting back," Robinson said. "But our defensive intensity wasn't there in the first half. Once we solve that, this team is going to be fine."

Robinson finished the third quarter by making a pair from the line to give Bucks a 90-88 lead.
