Game Story

SALT LAKE CITY (Ticker) -- If the Milwaukee Bucks keep it up, these wins won't be called upsets.

One night after knocking off the Los Angeles Lakers, the Bucks defeated another Western Conference power as Glenn Robinson scored 18 of his 32 points in the third quarter of a 111-102 victory over the Utah Jazz.

Robinson, one of the premier scorers in the NBA, had just eight points on 4-of-11 shooting in the first half before heating up in the third quarter.

"I got off to a slow start in the first half, and I just wanted to come out and make some shots," Robinson said. "We were having a good game, everybody was making shots, but I didn't quite have my rhythm yet. I felt it was my turn, so I turned my game up a little bit and helped the team out."

The 6-7 All-Star scored Milwaukee's final 14 points in the third, giving the Bucks the lead for good, 76-74, on a 19-footer with 34 seconds left. After Bryon Russell missed a shot, Robinson answered with a 3-pointer with 1.9 seconds to go for a 79-74 advantage. Robinson also lead the Bucks with nine rebounds and hit 9-of-9 free throws.

"I don't know how many teams could do what we just did," Milwaukee coach George Karl said. "I'm excited and hopeful that we can continue to play like we've been playing. Glenn Robinson was unbelievable, but I think our big guys did a good job battling (Karl) Malone. Glenn just kept carrying us."

Ray Allen scored 16 of his 25 points after halftime, when Milwaukee shot 52 percent (16-of-31). Lindsey Hunter scored 15 points and Tim Thomas 13 as both provided sparks off the bench.

"George has always been saying the bar has been raised and he's not going to let it go back down," said Hunter, who is the main acquisition to a young team that extended the Indiana Pacers to five games in the first round of the playoffs last season. "We did a great job, everybody was active, guys were talking through defensive sets."

The Bucks (11-11) won their third straight game and got to the .500 mark for the first time this season.

Sam Cassell, who hit a jumper with 3.7 seconds to go to lift Milwaukee to Tuesday's win over the Lakers, added 14 points. Cassell hit just 3-of-10 shots from the floor but made 7-of-8 from the line, where the Bucks were a scorching 95 percent (40-of-42).

Milwaukee won in Utah for the second straight season after losing its first seven trips in the Delta Center. The Bucks have won on the road against the Jazz and the Lakers for the first time since the 1987-88 season.

Malone scored 35 points for Utah (16-6), which has lost two straight at home and fell one game behind the Philadelphia 76ers for the best record in the NBA.

John Stockton added 16 points and nine assists, collecting his 14,000th career assist when Russell hit a 3-pointer that cut Milwaukee's lead to 109-102 with 26 seconds to go.

Stockton received a standing ovation as Allen nailed two free throws at the other end. But the all-time assists leader did not smile as his team fell to 9-4 at home.

"I didn't know what the applause was all about," Stockton said. "It was kind of a strange point in the game to be getting an ovation and I didn't know what it was all about until someone told me here in the locker room."

Malone had Utah's final seven points on an 11-2 burst that gave the Jazz a 66-65 edge when he sank a 20-footer with four minutes left in the third. But then Robinson took over, hitting a 17-footer as the Bucks regained the lead.

Malone, who was 15-of-15 from the line, made two shots to give the Jazz a 68-67 edge with 3:27 remaining. After an offensive foul on Thomas, Russell made two free throws to give Utah a 72-69 lead with 1:52 to go.

Robinson responded with a pair 10 seconds later and Greg Ostertag made a layup for Utah's final lead, 74-73, with 51 seconds left.

Ostertag, who had nine rebounds off the bench, was called for illegal defense with 41 seconds to play and Robinson made the shot to tie it.

"The last two games the other teams have just wanted to win more than we did and we can't have that," Ostertag said. "This is our home court and we've got to defend that. We've lost four games at home and you can't have that especially if you want to be one of the good teams in the Western Conference."

The Jazz managed to trim the deficit to four points twice in the final period. Donyell Marshall, who led Utah's substitutes with 14 points, made two free throws to make it 91-87 with 5:16 left.

Hunter, who had eight points in the fourth, answered with two free throws and after a missed 3-pointer by Marshall, Robinson hit a layup to open a 95-87 lead.
