Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- Five minutes of inspiration from Glenn Robinson and Ray Allen was all it took to snap the life out of the Atlanta Hawks.

Robinson scored seven points and dished out two assists and Allen had three dunks in a third-quarter run that broke open the game and the Milwaukee Bucks went on to an 84-74 victory over the struggling Hawks.

Robinson finished with 21 points, five rebounds and four assists, Allen scored 17 and Sam Cassell added 15 and six assists for the Bucks, who played as sloppily as the Hawks most of the game.

"I know for a fact we're going to get it going," Cassell said. "When Ray, Glennn and myself get it going we'll be tough to beat. Lately we haven't all put it together on the same night. I have the confidence we will. We just had to win tonight."

The Bucks came into the game as one of three teams in the East with just one victory and their porous defense has been the biggest problems.

Before the meeting with the Hawks, the Bucks had surrendered at least 100 points in three straight games -- four overall -- and lost each time. Against the Hawks, that was not a problem.

Jimmy Jackson scored 15 points to lead Atlanta, which was coming off its only victory of the season Tuesday night, 99-97 over Portland. Lorenzen Wright added 14 and Alan Henderson 11 and 11 rebounds.

The Bucks, who some expected to be among the stronger teams in the East, let the Hawks hang around until midway through the third quarter before Allen and Robinson led Milwaukee on an 18-5 run. The Hawks never threatened again.

Chris Crawford connnected on a 3-pointer with 7:48 to play in the period, bringing the Hawks within 54-53. But that was Atlanta's last basket for nearly five minutes.

In the meantime, Allen and Robinson went on a tear. The 6-7 forward fed Allen for back-to-back dunks, then was fouled on a layup and converted the three-point play.

"Ray got some open-court opportunities for easy dunks," Jackson said. "Any time you get those, it can change the momentum of the game."

After another dunk by Allen, Robinson drove into a double-team and found Cassell for a 17-footer that stretched Milwaukee's lead to 65-53.

Jackson hit 1-of-2 free throws with 3:41 left for Atlanta's first point in 4:07. Dikembe Mutombo had a three-point play with 3:02 to go in the quarter, cuutting the deficit to 65-57.

Robinson hit from five feet out on the left baseline, putting the Bucks up by 10 points. His 22-footer with 1:18 left made it 72-58.

Milwaukee took its largest lead, 76-58, on a 16-footer by Tim Thomas with 10:33 to go. The Bucks managed just eight points thereafter but that was enough to maintain a double-digit lead over the punchless Hawks.

"That was the first time we played with good defensive intensity," Bucks coach George Karl said. "Every night it's something different with this team. Tonight we put a pretty good second half together and we need to build on that. Until we get a better offensive flow, we need to play good defense."

Atlanta hit just 39 percent (27-of-69) from the field and 65 percent (15-of-23) from the line. The Hawks also committed 22 turnovers, giving up 26 points.

"We made a lot of turnovers. We made a lot of mistakes," Henderson said. "We turned the ball over 12 times in the third quarter. It's hard to win in the NBA if you have any quarters like that."

Hunter finished with 11 points, Thomas had 10 and Ervin Johnson grabbed 12 rebounds.

"Our confidence is coming back," Johnson said. "This team is not second guessing ourselves. We know what we can do and we're going to get this turned around."

Mutombo, in his fourth game back from his bout with malaria, hauled in 18 boards for the Hawks.

The Bucks led by as much as seven points in the first quarter and by eight early in the second, but let the Hawks creep back into the game before halftime.
