Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- The New Jersey Nets continue to get better and the Milwaukee Bucks continue to get worse.

The Nets moved closer in the playoff race and knocked the Bucks out of a tie for the coveted final berth in the Eastern Conference, roaring to a 108-80 victory.

Scott Burrell scored a season-high 19 points to lead a balanced attack for New Jersey, which never trailed and led by at least 18 points throughout the second half. The Nets (26-36) have won four of their last five games and are 3 1/2 games behind the Orlando Magic.

"They played a complete game tonight. They played hard," Nets coach Don Casey said. "I've been preaching that this team has been growing. We're still not there, but we're not wavering in our pursuit of a playoff spot."

The reeling Bucks (29-33) have lost four of five overall and nine of 11 at home. They again played without any heart or emotion and dropped one-half game behind Orlando into ninth place in the East.

"We've just got to find ways to win basketball games," Bucks coach George Karl said. "We're not very good offensively and we're not very good defensively. Right now, we're searching and everybody's got to stay together."

"We thought it was a bad stretch but now we have no confidence," said Bucks All-Star guard Ray Allen, who scored 16 points. "We don't know what to expect. We don't know what's going to happen anymore. It seems that there is no value out on the court. We can't even score now. We can't score on anybody."

Kerry Kittles scored 16 points, Kendall Gill added 15 and Keith Van Horn 14 for the Nets, who shot 52 percent (44-of-85) from the field and forced 23 turnovers.

"We played a 48-minute game today," Burrell said. "We played tough. We got a couple of steals early. Kendall hit a lot of shots. Kerry hit some big 3s."

Kittles scored 11 points and Gill eight in the first quarter as the Nets grabbed a 28-23 lead. But the real story was the nine turnovers committed by Milwaukee that led to 11 points for New Jersey.

"The frustration came in our passing," Karl said. "The turnovers in the first half, many of them were unforced."

The Bucks took better care of the ball in the second quarter but could not make a shot. They were 8-of-23 in the period while the Nets made 13-of-24 shots.

Stephon Marbury scored the first six points of the quarter to extend the lead to double figures. A dunk by Lucious Harris capped a 9-2 burst that gave New Jersey a 51-35 advantage with 2:01 left in the first half.

The Nets led 59-41 at halftime and began the third quarter with an 8-0 run. Gill had two baskets, including one that extended the margin to 67-41 with 10:08 remaining. New Jersey's largest lead was the final margin, provided by a dunk by little-used 7-7 center Gheorghe Muresan.

Harris scored 12 points, Jamie Feick grabbed 11 rebounds and Marbury handed out eight assists for New Jersey, which made 8-of-15 3-pointers.

"It's fun to be playing as well as we're supposed to," Van Horn said. "We're clicking on all cylinders right now."

Tim Thomas scored 19 points off the bench and Glenn Robinson added 12 for the Bucks, who shot 40.5 percent (34-of-84) and attempted just 11 free throws, making seven.
