Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- A visit to Golden State was a good remedy for the ailing and road-weary Milwaukee Bucks. But the return of Sam Cassell was the best medicine of all.

Returning from a pinched nerve, Cassell had 23 points, 10 assists and eight rebounds as Milwaukee snapped a four-game losing streak with a 113-97 victory over the Golden State Warriors.

The Bucks were 0-4 on their Western Conference road trip, but played all or part of the trip without Cassell, Glenn Robinson and Ray Allen. While Robinson is still nursing a bruised left thigh, Allen returned to the lineup three games ago.

Allen, after scoring over 20 points in his two previous games, managed just 13. He got some help from Cassell, who had missed two of the last three games with his injury but made 10-of-18 shots from the field.

"This was one game we had to have tonight and we got it," said Cassell, who was two rebounds shy of his first career triple-double. "I think we underachieved on this road trip. We played to the level of our competition and tonight I thought I had to play, just to get a win we had to have."

Despite still being in tremendous pain, Cassell was determined to play after watching his team lose to the Sacramento Kings, 115-101, on Sunday.

"Sitting out that game really helped me with my strength in my shoulder, but it was very frustrating watching Sacramento do the things they did to my ballclub with me not out there," he said.

Second-year guard Michael Redd scored 18 points and Tim Thomas -- starting in place of Robinson -- added 17 as Milwaukee improved to 9-11 on the road.

"It was great to get that monkey off our backs after losing four straight games," Redd said. "We just have to keep this going the rest of the season."

"The win was a big one for us because the West has been ugly for us so far," Thomas agreed. "I know the next time we come out here I know it is going to be better. We just need to keep this going on the right track."

The Bucks have dominated the Warriors over the years and did so again Tuesday, winning their fourth in a row and 10th in the last 14 meetings. They have captured 17 of their last 20 visits to Oakland.

Antawn Jamison scored 23 points and Danny Fortson had 19 and 13 rebounds for Golden State, which has lost six in a row. The Warriors have yielded 108.3 points during their slide.

Milwaukee never trailed and was tied just once, at 4-4 when Fortson made two free throws 2:29 into the first quarter. But the Bucks outscored the Warriors, 26-16, over the rest of the period to go into the second with a 10-point lead.

"My fears were well-founded," Golden State coach Brian Winters said. "We got exacly what we deserved in the first half. We came out with no energy, had nothing. It started with the opening tip when we dropped the ball on the floor, had a turnover and they got a dunk and it just deteriorated from there.

"We weren't alert enough, we weren't quick enough to the ball. We were basically out of it. There is not other way to explain it."

Jason Caffey gave Milwaukee its biggest lead at 55-28 with a jumper with 5:21 left in the second quarter. Caffey scored 10 of his 16 points in the period.

"It feels good to put up a good performance against my former team," he said. "As far as the bench out there, everybody was important in getting the win tonight. It was a must win situation for us and we got it. I think this can be a snow ball effect we just have to run with."

Golden State cut the deficit to 11 points twice, the last time on a jumper by Mookie Blaylock with 10:15 left in the fourth quarter. But the Bucks scored the next seven points and went ahead, 97-79, on Cassell's 18-footer with 7:26 remaining. They cruised the rest of the way, earning their first victory over the Pacific Division.

After being on the road since December 31, Milwaukee found its legs with a 54 percent shooting effort (43-of-80), making 8-of-17 from 3-point range.

Darvin Ham scored 14 points off the bench and Anthony Mason contributed eight and six assists for the Bucks, who posted their highest point total since a 102-99 overtime win over San Antonio. They had scored in triple digits in eight straight games before their trip and improved to 12-3 when registering 100 or more points.

"Being on the road, it's easy to make excuses, but we came out and dominated a game," Milwaukee coach George Karl said. "I am really proud about our guys with their hearts and character. I think we we caught Golden State a little tired, but I am just glad to get out of here with a win."

Larry Hughes had 12 points and rookie Jason Richardson chipped in 10 for Golden State, which was playing at home after an 0-4 road trip. The Warriors outrebounded the Bucks, 49-38, but only outscored them, 46-42, in points in the paint.

"I wouldn't blame (the loss) on coming off the road trip and not practicing," Hughes said. "Bad defense, and they made shots. We just didn't play well, we didn't stop their guys, especially early. By the time we got down to (11 points), it was too late. We gave those guys easy chances, straight lines to the basket."
