Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- As they moved within one win of their first division title in 15 years, the Milwaukee Bucks did so in historic fashion.

The Bucks overcame the absence of Glenn Robinson and routed the Chicago Bulls, 105-84, completing a season series sweep for the first time in franchise history.

"It's my job to prepare this team for their success," Bucks coach George Karl said. "My dad always told me that the thing he always loved about sports is you can do things no one can take away from you."

Milwaukee is 49-29 and needs just one win or one loss by the Toronto Raptors to wrap up their first Central Division title since 1986. The Raptors are at Detroit on Wednesday and the Bucks face Utah on Thursday. The teams meet Saturday.

"We have some big games this week," Karl said. "We want to clinch the division here. We still have work to do but we are moving towards our goals. I want to win as many games as possible."

Former Bull Scott Williams picked up the slack for Robinson, who sat out with a scracthed right cornea. Williams, who averages 18 minutes a game, had a career-high 24 points and 14 rebounds as Milwaukee snapped a two-game slide.

"I knew I was getting close to the career high because George was drawing plays for me (during) the timeouts and that never happens," Williams said. "So I just went out and forced a few shots until I got it."

"I'll be back Thursday," Robinson said, who suffered the injury during shootaround. "I can't miss the clincher."

Chicago has dropped a franchise-record 25 straight road games.

Milwaukee opened with a 15-2 run and never let up. The Bulls pulled within 38-32 on rookie Marcus Fizer's jumper with 8:05 to play in the second quarter, but the Bucks scored the next five points.

"The game plan tonight was to get them down early and make them think about their summer plans rather than the game," Williams said. "Normally, I get overjacked when I play the Bulls but tonight, I was relaxed and I was able to knock down my jumper."

Tim Thomas left the game at 6:29 of the third quarter when he injured his right shoulder. He drove through the lane and collided with a defender and did not return.

"Timmy may miss a game or two," Karl said. "We'll have to wait on what the doctor says."

Ray Allen scored 16 points, former Bull Jason Caffey had 14 and Sam Cassell and Lindsey Hunter each added 13 for the Bucks, who shot 53 percent (41-of-77).

Milwaukee is 13-2 when it shoots better than 50 percent.

Elton Brand scored 16 points for the Bulls, who shot 41 percent (33-of-79). Ron Artest scored 14 points and rookie A.J. Guyton and Fizer added 11 apiece.

"We can definitely learn a lot from them," Guyton said. "They play the game with real physicality. We're not there yet, but ... we've all got to keep improving and learning."

"At this point, you're trying to get the group to play together," Bulls coach Tim Floyd said. "You want them to play unselfish and grow together. You don't want it to turn into a dog-and-pony show out there."

Darvin Ham threw in a 72-footer at the buzzer to give Milwaukee a 64-45 lead at the half. The Bucks opened their biggest lead when Mark Pope hit a 19-foot jumper to make it 90-64 with 9:32 to go.

"They won't run a 3-point play for me," said Ham, an inside player who is 2-of-3 from behind the arc this season. "So that's the only way I'm going to get one."
