Game Story

ATLANTA (Ticker) -- The Milwaukee Bucks played as if they had a hangover from a gut-wrenching defeat. A night after blowing a five-point lead with a little more than a minute left, the Bucks looked like anything but a playoff team in a 111-92 loss to the Atlanta Hawks. Shareef Abdur-Rahim had 29 points and nine rebounds and Jason Terry added 22 points and 10 assists for the Hawks, who shot 56 percent from the field and won for the fourth time in five games. Playing in an arena more than half empty after experiencing a playoff atmosphere in a 105-102 home loss to San Antonio was apparently too much of a letdown for the Bucks, who looked like a tired team in the second half. Perhaps squandering a 102-97 lead with 1:16 left in the loss to San Antonio was still haunting Milwaukee, which slipped under .500 at 32-33, one-half game ahead of idle Washington for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. "We gave away a game yesterday (Tuesday) which we shouldn't have lost, but tonight we deserved to lose," said Bucks guard Gary Payton. "We just didn't play defense tonight. They picked us apart in the second half. Now it's coming down to must-wins for us. We shouldn't have put ourselves in this situation but we did." "Back-to-backs usually are a factor in this league, but I think it's obvious we need to have more of a sense of urgency," Bucks coach George Karl said. "We never got in their faces and changed their shots. There's no excuse for our defensive effort." Former Buck Glenn Robinson took extra satisfaction in this win. Traded by Karl in the offseason, Robinson hit three jumpers to spark a 25-11 run to close the third quarter, giving the Hawks an 83-71 lead. Robinson finished with 17 points. "I always want to beat the Bucks," said Robinson, a two-time All-Star forward who spent his first eight seasons with Milwaukee. "That's the team I want to beat the most in the league. I still have a lot of friends over there. I'm just glad that we split with them 2-2 (in the season series)." The Bucks were not even able to pull within double figures in the fourth quarter, and the Hawks built the lead to 107-88 on a 3-pointer by Dion Glover with 3:32 left. Once again, the Bucks received solid play from guards Sam Cassell and Payton and little from its front line, which was missing forward-center Anthony Mason (sore hip). Abdur-Rahim, Robinson and Theo Ratliff outscored Milwaukee's undersized front line of Desmond Mason, Tim Thomas and Dan Gadzuric by a whopping 53-18. Cassell led the Bucks with 24 points and Payton added 19 but hit just 7-of-20 shots. Michael Redd provided his usual boost off the bench with 19 points. "It's a team effort. You win as a team you lose as a team," Cassell said. "It's crunch time right now for this ballclub. Everybody has to look in the mirror and look at themselves. We didn't do what we had to do tonight." But Atlanta did for coach Terry Stotts, who lost his first two games against his long-time mentor Karl. "It was a fun game," said Stotts, an assistant to Karl in Milwaukee and Seattle. "We shared the ball, made our shots and got the ball inside, especially in the second half." Atlanta indeed shared the ball, setting a season-high with 35 assists. Terry's backcourt partner Glover had 16 points and a career-high eight assists and Robinson added seven assists. "We've been playing extremely well when we've passed the ball and had good ball movement," said Terry, who was 8-of-12 from the field. "It took us probably three-quarters of a season to realize our problem in winning these games. We can score a lot of points but we have to do it by moving the ball. When we do that, we make it hard on the other team." Robinson closed the first quarter with a 3-pointer off a pass from Terry, giving the Hawks a 31-22 lead. But Milwaukee opened the second quarter with an 11-2 run as Cassell hit a pair of jumpers, tying the game at 33-33. After Atlanta built its lead to 50-44, the Bucks closed the half with an 8-2 spurt, which included a running bank shot by Payton with 3.5 seconds left and a pair of free throws by Cassell with two seconds remaining following a steal. A basket by Desmond Mason gave the Bucks a 60-58 lead with 7:32 left in the third, but Terry and Abdur-Rahim each hit 3-pointers to ignite a 15-4 run. The Bucks host the Los Angeles Lakers on Saturday.
