Game Story

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Ticker) -- Glenn Robinson scored 11 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter as the Milwaukee Bucks dominated the final period to overtake the Vancouver Grizzlies, 92-87.

Robinson was 10-of-19 from the field, made all five of his free throws, grabbed six rebounds and handed out three assists for the Bucks, who posted their third win in four games.

"I've got to give my guards credit for finding me," Robinson said. "I do a lot of running on screens and I have to rely on them to get me the ball in a good position where I can score."

Milwaukee trailed 64-52 with just over four minutes remaining in the third quarter but went on a 21-5 run to take a 73-69 lead with 7:37 to play. The teams battled back and forth over the next five minutes until Robinson snapped an 80-80 tie by burying an 18-footer from the right sideline with 2:24 left.

"Glenn Robinson is one of the best last two minute men in basketball," Milwaukee coach George Karl said. "There aren't too many options, we usually go to Glenn every time."

"We finally got into the game defensively (in the fourth quarter) and we finally made a couple of shots," Robinson added. "We finally started playing with defensive urgency, and it paid off for us."

The Bucks caught a break on Vancouver's ensuing possession when officials ruled that Bryant Reeves' inbounds pass was deflected back off the center standing out of bounds, giving the ball to Milwaukee. Sam Cassell did not waste the opportunity, knocking down a 3-pointer to give the Bucks an 85-80 lead with 1:26 to go.

"Ray (Allen) drove, made a good pass to me, I made a good shot. Ray created the whole thing, I just finished it," Cassell said of his dagger.

Cassell had 21 points and seven assists for Milwaukee, which outscored the Grizzlies, 31-19, over the final 12 minutes to improve to 3-1 all-time at GM Place and 2-1 on a five-game road trip.

"In the second half, we decided to change it, take it to an up-tempo game and force them to play faster," Cassell said. "We just wanted to execute. We didn't execute at all in the first half."

Reeves had 22 points and a season-high 15 rebounds for Vancouver, which failed to match a season high with its third straight win and suffered its seventh loss in nine contests overall.

"Reeves was having a good game against us," Karl said. "I thought in the fourth quarter that was a big part of us controlling him and still being able to control the perimeter. We're learning, we're growing and we're gaining some respect, but we've still got a long way to go."

Allen scored 15 points and Scott Williams added 12, including a thunderous dunk off a perfect alley-oop pass from Allen that started the Bucks' big second-half run. Milwaukee shot 43 percent (35-of-81) but scored 27 points off turnovers while yielding only nine.

Shareef Abdur-Rahim, Michael Dickerson and Mike Bibby scored 16 points apiece for the Grizzlies, who held a 46-39 advantage on the boards. Bibby handed out 12 assists for Vancouver, which shot 42 percent (33-of-79) and appeared in control with a 50-42 halftime lead.

"There's a lot of things that happened in that game that cost us the game," Abdur-Rahim said. "But if we're going to be men we have to accept the fact that we had a 12- or 13-point lead with two minutes to go in the third and we let it go. Leave it at that."

After Williams' dunk, Robinson had an emphatic slam off a feed from Tim Thomas, Allen made it three dunks in a row on the ensuing trip and drained a 3-pointer to cut the deficit to 67-59 with 1:41 left in the third quarter.

"Welcome to major disappointment," Vancouver coach Lionel Hollins said. "I thought our guys played well and played hard. I am taking the blame for the end of the third quarter. Maybe I should have stopped and gotten some guys out of there. I didn't want to make a move, and I usually do that."

Thomas made a layup, Cassell drilled a short jumper and Vinny Del Negro was good from 21 feet before Cassell forged a 67-67 tie with 10:03 to play. Grant Long made 1-of-2 at the line to stop a 10-0 run, but Thomas came right back with a dunk and a jumper, giving Milwaukee a 71-68 lead with 8:21 remaining.
