Game Story

AUBURN HILLS, Michigan (Ticker) -- Michael Redd is becoming another weapon in an already potent arsenal for the Milwaukee Bucks.

Redd scored 21 points as the Bucks extended their season-high winning streak to eight games and continued their dominance of Central Division rivals with a 97-79 victory over the Detroit Pistons.

A 2000 second-round pick out of Ohio State, Redd was limited to just six games in his rookie season due to knee tendinitis. But healthy this season, Redd has become a factor off the bench.

On Monday, Redd fell one point shy of matching his career high, making 8-of-18 shots off the bench in 32 minutes.

"If I keep my defense on a high level that's how I'm going to stay on the floor with coach (George) Karl," Redd said.

"There's no question he's playing better than we thought he would play," Milwaukee coach George Karl said. "He is playing some very special basketball for us."

Sam Cassell and Ray Allen, part of an explosive backcourt, combined for 34 points for the Bucks, who took control in the first quarter by racing to a 34-15 lead. They held a 55-37 edge at halftime.

Center Joel Przybilla, a 2001 first-round pick, had career highs of 12 points and 13 rebounds as the Bucks improved to 11-1 against divisional foes this season.

Jerry Stackhouse netted 19 points for Detroit, which had won three of its last four games but fell back below the .500 mark at 19-20.

Allen has been scorching from the field of late, especially from beyond the arc, and made sure Milwaukee got off to fast start.

He scored 10 points, including a pair of 3-pointers, as the Bucks raced to a 21-8 lead less than eight minutes into the contest. He finished 6-of-16 from the field, going 3-of-8 from 3-point range en route to 16 points.

In his last seven games, Allen is shooting 64 percent (37-of-58) from the arc.

Cassell made two free throws with 21 seconds remained in the quarter, giving the Bucks a 34-15 bulge. The Pistons were horrible from the field in the quarter, missing 17-of-21 shots.

"It was important that we didn't have to play catch-up basketball today," Allen said. "We jumped on them early and that was the biggest key to the game."

In their last two games, the Pistons have dug themselves an early hole, getting outscored by a combined 67-37 in the opening quarter.

"Once again, the slow start was our undoing," Pistons coach Rick Carlisle said. "The energy at the beginning of the game has to be better and the guys need to recognize the importance of following the game plan to a tee."

Detroit was horrible from the field all afternoon, shooting just 36 percent (29-of-80). Stackhouse and Corliss Williamson were the main culprits, going a combined 7-of-31.

"It was just one of those nights. You don't want to have them but it happened," Stackhouse said. "They hit shots and we didn't. It's always going to be tough for us to win games when all three of us (Clifford Robinson and Williamson) are struggling."

The Pistons tried to battle back in the second quarter, scoring the first nine points. But the Bucks were able to regain control and took a 46-28 lead with 5:39 left in the half on a jumper by Redd.

Allen had 15 points in the half as the Bucks held an 18-point bulge.

As they did early in the second quarter, the Pistons got hot for a stretch and used a 17-4 surge to end the third period, pulling within 69-60. But they got no closer thereafter.

The Bucks regained control as Redd and Mason made baskets to start the fourth quarter and a jumper by Cassell stretched the margin to 78-64 with 7:17 remaining.

Led by the 7-1 Przybilla, who usually sees limited minutes even though he starts, the Bucks held a commanding 55-38 rebounding advantage. Przybilla played 29 minutes and clearly outplayed the 6-10 Clifford Robinson in the post.

Milwaukee shot 44 percent (35-of-80) and made 8-of-18 3-pointers.
