Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- Even in a place where they rarely win, the Portland Trail Blazers showed whey they are the best road team in the league.

Steve Smith scored 24 points and Greg Anthony came off the bench to score nine of his 14 points in a 37-point fourth quarter as the Trail Blazers rallied past the Milwaukee Bucks, 115-111.

The Trail Blazers, who concluded a 3-1 road trip, raised the NBA's best road record to 20-8. But the win was only their ninth in 44 games at Milwaukee.

"Our whole mindset is to win," Portland coach Mike Dunleavy said. "Every night we try to play the best we can and it usually turns into a victory."

Trailing 84-78, Portland opened the final quarter with a 13-4 run over the first four minutes and took the lead for good with 4:49 remaining on Anthony's 3-pointer from the right sideline. Milwaukee cut the deficit to two points twice in the final 18 seconds, but Brian Grant and Smith each hit two free throws to secure the victory.

"We got the win, but not the way we would have liked to," Anthony said. "I would imagine the starters were tired. We hung in there, got the stops and made the shots that we needed to."

"They made their shots and we fouled them," Bucks coach Geroge Karl said. "The fourth quarter shouldn't be 37 points, but they're a prolific team and they made big shots."

Portland hit 11-of-15 shots in the fourth quarter (73 percent) and shot 53 percent (40-of-75) for the game.

Milwaukee All-Star Ray Allen had several big misses down the stretch. With Portland leading 97-95 and just over six minutes remaining, Allen missed a 3-point attempt and low post shot on consecutive possessions. He later missed another 3-pointer that could have tied the game with four minutes remaining.

"When we come down the stretch, there were times when we just didn't execute and when they got the ball late, they would get something out of it," Allen said.

The misses ruined an impressive shooting night for Milwaukee, which shot 56 percent (47-of-84) from the floor. Glenn Robinson made 12-of-16 shots for the Bucks.

"They're just an incredibly good shooting team," Dunleavy added. "All night long they put us at risk. Our starters were tired. We started to play sluggish, and that's when they started making runs on us."

The Trail Blazers led for most of the first half before Milwaukee put together a 13-4 run for a 60-55 advantage at the break. Robinson scored four of the first six points during the run and Allen scored the final five for the Bucks.

Portland trailed by nine points with just over a minute left in the third quarter, but Rasheed Wallace's free throw and Grant's jumper from the right corner cut the deficit to six heading into the fourth.

The Trail Blazers scored the first five points of the fourth quarter to cut Milwaukee's lead to a point and then took a 91-88 lead on a jumper and two free throws by Detlef Schrempf, who scored all nine of his points in the final quarter.

Robinson scored 27 points and Allen added 26 as Milwaukee lost for the third time in four games.
