Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- Dan Issel did not stick around for George Karl's milestone win.

The coach of the Denver Nuggets was ejected late in the third quarter of a 116-111 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks, who snapped a two-game losing streak and gave Karl his 600th career win.

Issel was tossed by referee Steve Javie with 1:38 to play in the third quarter and the Nuggets trailing by six points. Under assistant John Lucas, Denver rallied within two points but got no closer.

"George is a successful coach," Issel said. "He's been good for a long time in this league. His 600th victory is a tribute to his longevity in this league."

Karl improved to 600-405 with Cleveland, Golden State, Seattle and Milwaukee. He became the sixth-fastest coach to record 600 wins and is one of seven active coaches to reach the plateau.

"I think it will be more meaningful to me when I'm with my friends in the summer," Karl said. "You can't win that many games without great players. I started out in Golden State having World B. Free, then I was shipped out to Siberia.

"Thankfully, Bob Whitsitt found me and I met two great kids named Gary Payton and Shawn Kemp. Now I have a new home in Milwaukee. Everybody's been unbelievably kind and generous. I hope to build something nice here."

Ray Allen scored 32 points and had a clutch three-point play with 1:15 remaining for the Bucks, who ended a four-game losing streak to the Nuggets. Milwaukee had not beaten Denver since April 1, 1998.

"It meant a great deal to us," Allen said. "George's 600th win and Glenn (Robinson) and I going to the All-Star Game, it all makes it a good night."

Antonio McDyess had 26 points and 17 rebounds for the Nuggets, who never led after the midway point of the first quarter and have dropped four of six.

"George ia a great coach in this league," McDyess said. "I respect him very much as a coach. I just wish his 600th wouldn't have come against us."

Issel interceded on behalf of Nuggets guard Nick Van Exel, who was arguing with Javie while Allen was making two free throws to give the Bucks a 78-72 lead. Javie ejected Issel and Allen made the technical foul shot for a seven-point bulge.

Milwaukee took a 79-75 lead to the fourth quarter and opened a 93-84 advantage on Lindsey Hunter's 3-pointer with 7:40 left. Denver stormed back within 100-98 on two fre throws by McDyess but Allen drove for a layup and was fouled with 1:44 to play.

Allen's free throw made it 103-98 and it was a two-possession game thereafter. Milwaukee scored its last nine points from the line and made 14-of-16 free throws in the fourth quarter after sinking 8-of-9 through the first three periods.

"It was an old-fashioned shootout," Karl said. "It reminded me of an old ABA game between Denver and San Antonio. The bench played well; we won a shootout."

Glenn Robinson scored 25 points, Cassell added 23 and Tim Thomas 16 for the Bucks, who shot 50 percent (43-of-86) and committed just eight turnovers. Allen added 11 assists and was 13-of-13 from the line.

"They didn't miss any free throws down the stretch," McDyess said. "It was tough in the fourth to (get) back in because they didn't make those foul shots."

Van Exel had 19 points and nine assists and Voshon Lenard scored 15 points for the Nuggets, who shot 49 percent (41-of-83) and held a 45-33 rebounding advantage.

The Bucks took the lead for good at 14-13 on a jumper by Scott Williams with 5:48 left in the first quarter. Allen scored 15 points in the first quarter, which ended with Milwaukee holding a 29-22 lead.

"The big key for me was early in the game I got good penetration and got to the hoop for some easy baskets," Allen said. "That got my confidence going and the hoop looked big all night long."

Scoreless in the first period, Robinson took over in the second, scored 14 points as the Bucks widened their lead to 58-46 at halftime. But Denver opened the third quarter with a 12-4 spurt to get back in it.
