Game Story

INDIANAPOLIS (Ticker) -- If Sam Cassell and the Milwaukee Bucks make the playoffs, they may look back at this game as the one that started the trip.

Cassell had 30 points and nine assists as the Bucks ambushed the Eastern Conference-leading Indiana Pacers, 109-84, to snap a six-game road losing streak.

"We try to patent ourselves after the Pacers," said Cassell, who made 11-of-16 shots. "This team wants to be where the Pacers are at."

Cassell scored 10 points in each of the first three quarters as Milwaukee started quickly and never relented, dealing Indiana only its fourth home loss of the season. The Bucks opened a double-digit lead in the first 7 1/2 minutes and led by as many as 28 points midway through the third quarter.

Milwaukee (32-36) came in just 6-16 since February 1, tumbling out of the East's playoff picture. However, tonight's win moved the Bucks within one-half game of eighth-place Orlando and began a 15-game closing stretch in which Milwaukee plays only four foes above .500.

"There's no playoff race until the end of the season," Milwaukee coach George Karl said. "We have a very good schedule. We have an opportunity to play Boston, New Jersey and Orlando. We've got Orlando two more times. Those are going to be very important games. We've thrown away a good opportunity but we still have a good opportunity to make the playoffs."

"I give a lot of credit to George (Karl)," Cassell added. "George has just told us to go out and play basketball. Don't worry about plays, just go out there and compete and have fun. That's what we did tonight."

Milwaukee won in Indiana for the first time since January 25, 1997, ending an eight-game slide that included two losses in the first round of last year's playoffs. The Pacers suffered their worst home loss since a 119-95 setback to Sacramento on November 10, 1995.

Ray Allen scored 26 points and Tim Thomas added 21 off the bench for the Bucks, who shot 51 percent (43-of-85) from the field while holding the Pacers to 37.5 percent (27-of-72). Milwaukee dealt Indiana its first tip-to-horn loss of the season.

"The difference, I think, was that we moved the ball," said Bucks forward Glenn Robinson, who scored 14 points. "We were creating shots for each other. When we go too much 1-on-1, that's when our basket gets a big lid on it."

Jalen Rose scored 22 points and Reggie Miller added 16 for the Pacers, who suddenly are struggling at Conseco Fieldhouse. Indiana went 3-2 in its first five home games, won 25 in a row and is 3-2 in its last five.

"We've had that problem throughout the year where we didn't come out at the start," Pacers coach Larry Bird said. "They just beat us. It was a bad effort on our part. We couldn't get any stops at all."

With the score tied, 6-6, the Bucks went on a 25-8 burst to take control for good. Cassell and Allen combined for 17 points and a jumper by Cassell gave Milwaukee a 31-14 lead with 1:02 left in the first period.

"We really came tonight to play," Thomas said. "We played together, we played smart, we put in some new sets for the Pacers and it worked."

Cassell had 10 points and five assists in the first quarter, when the Bucks outrebounded the Pacers, 20-8, and opened a 33-19 advantage. Indiana got within 42-29 with 7:38 remaining in the second quarter before Cassell scored eight points in a 10-1 run that extended the lead to 52-30 with 3:42 left.

"These weak starts have got to go because they can and will come back to bite you," Pacers forward Austin Croshere said.

Milwaukee led 62-40 at halftime and Cassell's transition jumper gave the Bucks their largest lead at 78-50 with 5:21 left in the third quarter.

The Pacers used an 18-7 surge to cut the deficit to 85-68 going into the final period, but with Cassell on the bench, Allen scored six points in a 10-0 run, including a dunk that made it 95-68 with 8:44 to play.

Darvin Ham grabbed 10 rebounds for the Bucks, who held a 47-36 edge on the glass and made 17-of-19 free throws. Milwaukee also had a 26-9 advantage in fast-break points.

Mark Jackson scored 12 points for the Pacers, who made 23-of-29 free throws but only 7-of-21 3-pointers.
