Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- Glenn Robinson missed the meeting but apparently got the message.

Benched for missing a pregame meeting, Robinson scored 24 points to lead the Milwaukee Bucks to a 92-80 victory over the Indiana Pacers.

After Saturday's 101-94 loss in Atlanta in which Milwaukee was sloppy on both ends of the court, Bucks coach George Karl felt the need to talk with his team about getting back to the things they were doing in compiling a three-game winning streak.

However, All-Star forward Robinson and fellow starters Sam Cassell and Jason Caffey missed the meeting and Wreplaced by Jerome Kersey, Lindsey Hunter and Tim Thomas.

"They didn't make a meeting to talk about the game plan," Karl said. "They didn't start. The last I checked, it's the job of the employee to find out when they're supposed to work."

Some of the players offered apologies and explanations.

"I apologized to the team," Caffey said. "We were in the back of the plane when the meeting was announced (Saturday) and we just didn't hear it."

"I think it was just a misunderstanding," Bucks guard Ray Allen said. "I know Sam was asleep when it was announced and I guess the rest didn't hear it."

Each of the trio came on in the first quarter and started the second half. Robinson and Thomas scored five points apiece in a 12-0 run that began the third quarter and gave Milwaukee a 55-44 lead.

"I thought emotionally the Bucks came out ready to play," Pacers coach Isiah Thomas said. "They had a tough loss in Atlanta and wanted to come out and have a strong game. Their team came out and responded to having a couple of starters on the bench."

Robinson made 9-of-22 shots and grabbed nine rebounds. He would not talk about his benching but did speak about his team's effort.

"We played a good game," he said. "Indiana came out in the second half and missed a lot of shots. We took advantage and got a good lead to take us down the stretch. Sometimes the shooting isn't there, so you have to rebound well and play good defense. This was a very important win for us. This was a tough team to bounce back against."

The Bucks also got a big boost from Allen, who scored 16 points and limited fellow All-Star Reggie Miller to eight on 2-of-11 shooting, including 0-of-4 from 3-point range.

Miller had scored 41 points in each of his last two meetings with Milwaukee -- Game Five of last season's first-round series and a home win on November 8.

"It was important to win today and get back on track after what happened in Atlanta," Allen said.

"Anytime you play Reggie, he's dangerous," Karl said. "He got a lot of open looks. He just missed 'em tonight."

Jalen Rose scored 26 points for Indiana, which shot just 2-of-20 from the arc and completed a 1-3 road trip.

"They just missed their threes," Karl said. "I'm not sure it was defense as much as they just missed easy shots."

Jermaine O'Neal scored 17 of his 21 points in the first half to give Indiana a 44-43 lead. But Caffey and Thomas opened the third quarter with two free throws apiece and Robinson drilled a 3-pointer for a 50-44 lead.

Robinson added a basket and Thomas sank a 3-pointer to push the advantage to 11 ́with 8:11 remaining. Indiana missed its first seven shots and did not score until the 7:21 mark.

"Once again, the third quarter killed us," said Miller, who missed twice during the drought. "We aren't coming out and playing well in the first five minutes of the second half. We need to come out ready to play."

Rose scored 13 points in the period, including a corner jumper that cut the deficit to 62-59 with 1:50 to go. But Allen had two foul shots and a dunk and Robinson made another 3-pointer to give the Bucks a 69-61 lead entering the final quarter.

Robinson and Thomas opened the fourth with baskets and Milwaukee led by double digits thereafter.

Thomas had 16 points and 12 rebounds, Hunter added 11 points and four assists and Kersey scored seven points. Caffey had 12 points and nine boards and Cassell four points and seven assists. Milwaukee shot just 38 percent (32-of-84) but held a 48-35 edge on the glass.

"This is how we've been playing -- some good, some bad," Karl said. "Tonight, Jason and Jerome Kersey gave a toughness we haven't had. But our shooters still didn't shoot. You can't win many games in this league shooting 38 percent."

Travis Best scored 11 points for the Pacers, who shot 42 percent (28-of-66).
