Game Story

TORONTO (Ticker) -- The Milwaukee Bucks, who live and die by the jump shot, survived against the Toronto Raptors.

Ray Allen scored 29 points and teamed with Tim Thomas to lead a long-range assault as the Bucks snapped a two-game losing streak by holding on for a 101-97 victory over the Raptors.

Perhaps the best jump-shooting team in the NBA, the Bucks rode the outside shooting of Allen and Thomas to a 90-71 lead after three quarters.

But after scoring 10 points in a 49-second span late in the first half, the Bucks went cold and managed just five in the opening eight minutes of the fourth quarter. A dunk by Jerome Williams pulled Toronto within 95-89 with 4:05 to play.

Glenn Robinson answered with a 17-footer. After Vince Carter scored to again cut the deficit to six points, Sam Cassell made a big jumper for a 99-91 lead with 1:11 left.

"We were disappointed to let them back in the game," Cassell said. "We didn't play tough defense and took some bad shots. They're bench players outhustled us and almost won the game for them."

Allen made a pair of free throws in the final 18 seconds as Milwaukee completed a 3-2 road trip and maintained first place in the Central Division.

"It's a big win for us," Allen said. "We've been playing bad basketball and our backs were against the wall. We put a lot of emphasis on this game because its a possible playoff matchup."

Allen made 10-of-20 shots, including three 3-pointers. Thomas was even hotter, making 8-of-13 shots and five from the arc. In all, Milwaukee shot 10-of-23 from 3-point range.

"We're a jump-shooting team," Bucks coach George Karl said. "When we hit open shots, we're a hell of a team."

Vince Carter scored 24 points for Toronto, which could not overcome Milwaukee's hot shooting and had a two-game winning streak snapped. The Bucks shot 46 percent (41-of-89) while the Raptors shot just 36 percent (31-of-87).

"Milwaukee can shoot the ball and tonight we got down by too many," said Carter,m who was just 8-of-23 from the field. "Sometimes you will have bad nights and tonight was a bad night. Tim Thomas shot the lights out. When you put him at the 4-spot and send him to the corner for the three-ball, he's tough to defend."

Thomas showed how tough he is late in the second quarter. With the score tied, he made a 3-pointer and was fouled by Antonio Davis. His free throw completed the four-point play and gave the Bucks a 58-54 lead with 1:25 left.

On the next two possessions, Thomas and Allen drilled 3-pointers to extend the advantage to 10 points. Milwaukee led 66-56 at halftime, the highest first-half total against Toronto this season.

"Our defense wasn't great in the first half," Raptors coach Lenny Wilkens said. "Sixty-six points is a lot of points to give up. They had too many open looks."

Allen scored 12 points in the third quarter, when Toronto went cold and fell behind 90-71 entering the final period.

The Raptors opened the fourth quarter with 10 straight points before Thomas stemmed the tide with a 3-pointer. Toronto kept chipping away and pulled within six on the dunk by Williams, who had eight points and seven rebounds off the bench.

"It was a slide down the mountain pretty fast," Karl said. "We missed some easy shots."

"Our guys in the fourth quarter brought us back with their energy," Wilkens said.

Cassell scored 21 points and Robinson added 18 for the Bucks, who were soundly beaten on the boards for the third straight game. Milwaukee was outrebounded 54-40 and has been swept 160-105 on the glass in its last three contests.

Rookie Morris Peterson scored 17 points and Alvin Williams added 14 for the Raptors, who shot just 6-of-17 from the arc.
