Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- For the second straight game, the Milwaukee Bucks came up big on the defensive end.

Glenn Robinson triggered a decisive fourth-quarter surge as the Bucks won consecutive games for the first time this season, 89-76 over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Expected to be a contender in the Eastern Conference, the Bucks got off to a slow start and lost five of their first six games, allowing more than 100 points in four of those contests.

But they came up with their best defensive effort of the season on Wednedsay in an 84-74 triumph over Atlanta and were almost as stingy tonight.

Cleveland struggled all night from the field, shot just 41 percent (30-of-72) and committed 21 turnovers in recording its lowest point total of the season.

"We are going to struggle offensively when we turn the ball over the way we did tonight," Cleveland coach Randy Wittman said. "We had 21 turnovers, it seems to be a constant occurrence with this team. This team is capable of better things. We need 10 guys on the same page. We have to play together. We had guys out there tonight who looked as if they hadn't even warmed up."

"Five-on-five, we played great defensively," Bucks coach George Karl said. "Their confidence came by scoring when we didn't get back on defense. We're searching for confidence right now."

After Andre Miller scored the first basket of the fourth quarter to pull the Cavs even at 67-67, Milwaukee reeled off an 18-3 run.

Robinson scored eight of his 21 points in the burst that Lindsey Hunter capped with a 3-pointer, giving Milwaukee an 85-70 advantage with 5:15 remaining.

Working against Lamond Murray, Robinson burned the Cavs' small forward during the key burst. He scored the first six points of the surge and Tim Thomas drilled a long 3-pointer to give Milwaukee a 76-67 lead with 7:42 to play.

The Cavaliers made just four baskets and committed eight turnovers in the fourth quarter, getting no closer than six points thereafter.

"We forced a lot of turnovers," Robinson said. "They're 6-3 now, and they've been playing well. Out offensive came is going to come. I'm confident it'll improve. We have a lot of shooters, a lot of guys who can score. I think it's just a matter of time."

Ray Allen scored 23 points to lead Milwaukee, which won despite shooting just 41 percent (35-of-85).

Milwaukee looked as if it was going to blow the Cavs out in the first half and opened a 36-23 advantage with 6:02 to play before halftime on Jason Caffey's layup.

But the Cavs, however, battled back and closed within 40-39 at the break.

The game was homecoming for former first-round pick Robert Traylor, who fell out of favor in Milwaukee and was traded to Cleveland during the offseason. "The Tractor" had five points and four rebounds in 21 minutes.
