Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- The Milwaukee Bucks sent another message to their possible first-round playoff opponent.

Glenn Robinson led six players in double figures with 26 points as the Bucks made it eight straight wins over the Orlando Magic with a 115-103 victory.

"I play better when everyone else is in the flow," Robinson said. "When we have four, five guys in double figures, it makes things a lot easier for me. We moved the ball well tonight and it showed."

Orlando sliced a 22-point deficit to five with 2:32 remaining but Milwaukee held on to post its fourth straight victory and improve to 3-0 against the Magic this season. The teams play again in Orlando on April 16.

The Bucks closed with a 10-3 run and opened a 3 1/2-game lead over second-place Charlotte in the Central Division.

Milwaukee (43-25) surpassed last season's win total and moved 18 games over .500 for the first time since late in the 1988-89 campaign.

Milwaukee coach George Karl was not concerned abourt the Bucks nearly squandering the big lead. He said all it did was ruin his dinner reservation.

"That's who we are," Karl said. "That's how most teams in the NBA are. I don't get nervous until it's under three. A lead can go from 15 to 10 in a heartbeat. When you're professional and mentally tough, you handle it."

The loss dropped Orlando into a tie for sixth overall in the East with the Toronto Raptors. If the Magic drops to seventh and the Bucks hold on to the No. 2 seed, Orlando and Milwaukee will meet in the opening round of the playoffs.

"We can't worry about it now. We need to worry about Indiana," said Orlando guard Darrell Armstrong, referring to the eighth seed in the East. "The game is over. There is nothing we can do about it."

"The playoffs aren't here yet," Magic forward Michael Doleac added. "A lot can change and we have to get there first."

Tracy McGrady kept Orlando close with 33 points, including 12 in the fourth quarter. Rookie Mike Miller added a season-high 28 for the Magic, who have dropped three of their last four games.

"Another Milwaukee game, another loss," Orlando coach Doc Rivers said. "We played well for the first four minutes and looked really active."

Tim Thomas contributed 20 points and Ray Allen and Sam Cassell added 17 apiece for the Bucks, who improved to 31-9 this season when reaching the century mark.

Milwaukee's depth was too much for Orlando as the Bucks' reserves outscored Orlando's bench, 48-20. The Bucks opened a 83-61 lead on Allen's fast-break layup with 5:30 remaining in the third quarter.

McGrady and Miller fueled Orlando's comeback as the Magic closed within 105-100 on Pat Garrity's 3-pointer with 2:32 remaining. Garrity contributed 15 points off the bench.

"We cut it to five," Rivers said. "Nice comeback for us. The guys played hard. We just need to come harder. When you look at the stats and see us shoot 48 percent (40-of-84), we usually win those games."

The Orlando coach pulled a page of the "Hack-a-Shaq" book by intentionally fouling Darvis Ham down the stretch, a ploy he pulled against Detroit's Ben Wallace earlier this month.

But the move backfired when Ham, who had made just 13-of-26 free throws entering the game, hit a pair to make it 107-100 with 2:28 remaining.

"That's good strategy," Ham said. "From a percentage standpoint, I have a low free-throw percentage. That's a great strategy. I've gotta go out and get better at my free throws. I would like 10-for-10, but I'll take 7-for-10. Before, I didn't have confidence. Now, I want to be up there in that situation."

After McGrady converted 1-of-2 from the line, the Magic intentionally fouled Mark Pope, who missed both. But Cassell hit two with 1:51 remaining before Thomas made it four in a row to give the Bucks a comfortable 113-101 cushion with a minute to go.

Orlando scored the game's first six points, but Milwaukee took the lead for good, 18-17, on Allen's jumper with 4:48 left in the first quarter. The Bucks opened a 28-21 lead after the first period and stretched their margin to 61-47 at the break.
