Game Story

CHICAGO (Ticker) -- Just when it looked like the Milwaukee Bucks would fall to the Chicago Bulls, Ray Allen came to the rescue.

Allen scored 17 of his 34 points in the final quarter to lift the Bucks to a 101-92 victory over the Bulls.

"I didn't mean to just come out and just score." Allen said. "I knew we needed more than that and the rest of the guys would have to step up there defensively. We knew we had a chance to do that all through the fourth quarter."

"Ray was awfully good." Milwaukee coach George Karl said. "He showed a lot of heart in that fourth quarter."

The Bulls squandered a 10-point fourth quarter lead and failed in their bid to win a third straight home game.

The Bulls were outscored at the free throw line, 17-2, in the final quarter. At one point in the period, Chicago missed seven straight shots and only attempted two in the final 1:03 after trimming the deficit to three.

"Their stretch in the fourth quarter was much like what happened to us last night." Chicago coach Tim Floyd said. "We went to our bench and had about a four-minute period where we turned the ball over repeatedly and they got cheap baskets going back the other way."

Milwaukee used a 19-4 fourth-quarter run to take the lead for good. Allen started the surge when he knocked down a jumper from the right sideline to give the Bucks an 83-82 lead with seven minutes to play.

The Bulls went scoreless for 3:25 until Fred Hoiberg knocked down back-to-back jumpers from the right sideline.

Chicago pulled within 95-92 with 1:29 to go, but Milwaukee's Sam Cassell converted a three-point play to push the lead to six and the Bucks sealed the game from the free-throw line.

The Bucks had five players in double figures, including two off the bench.

"The guys on our team are made up of a very tender group." Allen said. "We have to kind of caress each person the right way. We have to get all the team shots and make them happy. Sam and I have to build on that."

Cassell scored 20 points for the Bucks, who won their second straight and third in four games.

Chicago's Elton Brand tallied the first 20-20 game of his career with 21 points and a career-high 21 rebounds and Brad Miller added a season-high 20 points.

Ron Artest of the Bulls and Milwaukee's Glenn Robinson got into a skrimish in the third quarter and both were ejected.

"I wish it never happened." said Artest, who also tangled with Robinson last April. "We were just aggressive. Maybe too aggressive."

After Robinson elbowed Artest in the stomach, Artest threw Robinson to the ground. A scuffle ensued that resulted in both being sent to the locker room with 5:23 remaining in the third quarter. The Bulls had a 66-58 lead when the incident occurred.

"I may have just blown it out of proportion," Artest said. "I was just trying to play hard and protect myself. It was a little tackle, it was just a little takedown. I didn't throw any punches."

"I didn't see it." Brand said. "I just know Ron was playing good defense, Glenn was probably getting a little frustrated."

Robinson, who averages 22.5 points per game, had just six points on 2-of-9 shooting. Artest went to the lockeroom with six points on 1-of-9 shooting. He entered the contest averaging 11.5 per game.

"I think the altercation got us pumped up a bit. I thought that we played with a little more bounce and energy and were juiced after that. I thought it helped out momentum and got us energized, that's all." Karl said.
