Game Story

TORONTO (Ticker) -- Sam Cassell scored 19 points and Toni Kukoc added 15 and six assists as the Milwaukee Bucks posted their season-high fourth straight win, a 99-87 victory over the undermanned Toronto Raptors. Ray Allen netted 15 points, Michael Redd added 14 and Tim Thomas 12 for the hot-shooting Bucks, who hit 54 percent (38-of-70) from the field in winning for the fifth time in six games. After Antonio Davis' two free throws pulled Toronto within 20-19 with 3:12 left in the first period, Milwaukee took command, going on a 21-6 burst. It was capped by Cassell's two foul shots with 8:35 remaining in the half for a 41-25 lead. Kukoc scored six points in the run. The Bucks improved to 4-0 since his return from the injured list Friday after he had missed 18 games with a right thumb injury. "We knew they were short on players so we wanted to keep it an up-tempo game," Kukoc said. "We did a good job early in the game of executing on offense to get a big lead." Morris Peterson scored 22 points and Jerome Williams added 18 and 17 rebounds for the injury-riddled Raptors, who once again played with three 10-day signees among their eight healthy players. "We were putting up shots but they were not falling for us," said Williams, whose two-game total of 37 rebounds is a team record. "We weren't able to overcome their offensive tenacity." The Bucks (18-20) have climbed within two games of the .500 mark for the first time since they were 10-12 on December 13. "We have to take it one game at a time and put together a string by beating the teams we are supposed to beat," Allen said. We'll have a great second half of the season. Things are looking up for us." Three of the teams the Bucks have beaten during their streak have been below .500. They move on to face Philadelphia, then Boston in a home-and-home series. By contrast, Toronto had its two-game winning streak snapped and lost for the 13th time in the past 16 games. The Raptors have been devastated by injuries. Vince Carter, Voshon Lenard and Lindsey Hunter are among their 10 injured players. "We have three 10-day contracts, (Rafer Alston, Damone Brown and Art Long), that's our bench," Raptors coach Lenny Wilkens said. "It's been tough. But one thing I'll give the kids, they are not intimidated." Following their big run, there was no letup by the Bucks. After Peterson's bucket narrowed with gap to 43-30 with 8:11 to play in the first half, Milwaukee reeled off the next eight points. The Bucks took a 59-43 lead into the locker room. "We couldn't take them lightly because they beat us last time in Milwaukee," Cassell said. "We are playing pretty good right now." The Raptors trailed by as many as 21 points in the third quarter before whittling the deficit down to single digits in the fourth. Alston capped an 8-0 burst with a 3-pointer with 5:21 to cut it to 89-81, but Redd drained a 3-pointer with 3:43 left to restore the double-digit advantage. Alston continued his fine play since signing a 10-day contract last week, recording 14 points and five assists.
