Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- Ray Allen and Glenn Robinson scored 22 points apiece and took part in a key second-half run as the Milwaukee Bucks held on for a 99-91 victory over the reeling Washington Wizards.

Milwaukee, which never trailed, scored 13 of the game's first 17 points and built a commanding 57-38 advantage with 73 seconds remaining in the first half, thanks to a 13-2 run.

Allen made two free throws and hit a 3-pointer from the left sideline for a 51-36 advantage with 2:12 left before Robinson scored the team's next six points. He also had a block and two steals during the stretch.

Robinson had three blocks on the night to go with 12 rebounds and seven assists.

"Glenn's been playing great," Milwaukee coach George Karl said. "He had a great bounce to his game tonight. He's going to get a triple-double this season. I don't know if he's ever had one but he'll get one this year."

The Bucks carried a 20-point advantage into the fourth quarter but backed by the strong play of Richard Hamilton, the Wizards cut their deficit to 92-86 with just over three minutes remaining. However, Milwaukee's Tim Thomas hit a crucial 3-pointer 23 seconds later to put away the game.

Washington again cut the deficit to six on Hamilton's two free throws with 33.8 seconds left but Milwaukee's Lindsey Hunter capped the scoring with two free throws of his own.

"It's two games in a row now that we've played three quarters," Karl said. "Hopefully on the road, we'll decide to play four quarters. The game was ugly and we were uglier."

On Thursday, Milwaukee was outscored in the fourth quarter, 28-13, by Phoenix but held on for a 104-96 victory.

"We got passive offensively," Allen said. "We play fast and they slowed us down. We committed too many turnovers and we fouled them too much."

Hamilton came off the bench and scored 17 of his 19 points in the fourth quarter but it was not enough to prevent Washington's seventh straight loss.

"We took a lot of jumpers that weren't falling in the first three quarters," Hamilton said. "In the fourth, those jumpers started to fall. Things didn't go the way we wanted them to tonight."

Milwaukee has won three of its last four games. The stretch started with a 92-80 victory over Indiana on Sunday in which Robinson, Allen, Sam Cassell and Jason Caffey were benched at the start for missing a team meeting.

"Ever since George got on us, we've been working harder," Robinson said. "He hasn't been happy, so we've been trying harder to do more of the little things and play and practice hard. Me, I'm going to keep eating the same food before games."

Cassell scored 19 points on 8-of-12 shooting with seven assists and five rebounds. The Bucks connected on 43 percent of their attempts (34-of-80), including 6-of-16 from 3-point range.

Four Washington starters scored in double figures, led by Rod Strickland's 16 points. But their inconsistency showed again as the foursome, including Juwan Howard, Tyrone Nesby and Felipe Lopez, went a combined 16-of-41 from the floor.

"I was glad to see my bench players come in with good energy," coach Leonard Hamilton said. "We need our bench and starters to play with enthusiasm every night. It's obvious that we haven't found the right group of guys to play with energy and show what they are capable of doing."

Milwaukee needed the win to gain momentum for its upcoming stretch that features games against the Los Angeles Lakers, Utah, Toronto and New York.

"The only thing we're not doing right now is beating good teams," Karl said. "You look at most of our losses, we've lost to good teams. I've got to figure out how to keep the rhythm the right way."

Washington shot 38 percent from the floor (30-of-80) and held a 43-40 rebounding advantage.
