Game Story

CLEVELAND (Ticker) -- The Milwaukee Bucks are starting to play up to their preseason expectations.

Sam Cassell and Ray Allen each scored 23 points as the Bucks routed the slumping Cleveland Cavaliers, 107-89, to match a season high with their fourth straight victory.

Expected to contend in the Eastern Conference, the Bucks got off to a 3-9 start. But the slow start seems like a distant memory as Milwaukee has won 13 of its last 16 contests to move a season-best four games over .500.

Cassell led the way, making 7-of-9 shots from the field and all nine of his free throws. Allen went 9-of-20 from the floor.

"We played as a team and that's why we won," Cassell said. "We have to do what we have to do to win."

"In order for us to grow and become one of the best teams in the league we've got to come out and be all together as a team where we work with each other," Allen added. "We have tremendous scorers. We are all tremendous scorers and we could make tough shots."

Glenn Robinson added 22 points for the Bucks, who never trailed and led by as many as 23 points in the waning moments.

"Controlling the game on the road is very unusual," said Bucks coach George Karl, who is 21-5 all-time against Cleveland. "The Cavs are banged up and we caught them at a moment when a lot of their good players are hurt. You still have to go out and win the game."

Lamond Murray netted 22 points and Clarence Weatherspoon had 15 and 15 rebounds for Cleveland, which suffered its season-high fifth straight loss.

Already without starting center Zydrunas Ilgauskas (foot) and point guard Brevin Knight (knee), the Cavs also played without forwards Chris Gatling (ankle) and Matt Harpring (Achilles).

Milwaukee took full advantage of the depleted Cavs and opened a 34-22 advantage early in the second quarter on a 15-footer by Tim Thomas.

Jason Caffey hit 1-of-2 free throws, pushing the lead to 49-33 with 1:49 left before intermission. Cleveland scored the final seven points of the half.

"Obviously this was a game we came into really shorthanded," Cleveland coach Randy Wittman said. "In these situations when you continue to get shorthanded more and more, you have to have the attitude of a wounded animal. I thought we had a 'what-are- you-going to do-attitude,' especially in the first half."

Milwaukee took control of the contest in the third quarter, grabbing a 71-54 lead with 5:49 left in the period on a three-point play by Cassell, who made his first seven shots from the field.

The Bucks led by 17 points after three quarters and Cleveland never got within single digits over the final 12 minutes.

Scott Williams chipped in with 12 points and eight rebounds for Milwaukee, which shot 46 percent (39-of-84) and held a 45-40 rebounding advantage.

Trajan Langdon and Robert Traylor each had 12 points off the bench for the Cavs, who shot 42 percent (30-of-71).

"It's one of those times where things get tough," Traylor said. "It's a long season. You can't compensate for not having guys on the court. Everybody has to step it up and bring something to the table."
