Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- The Milwaukee Bucks moved a step closer to sending Michael Jordan into retirement. Michael Redd scored 13 of his 22 points in the fourth quarter and Ervin Johnson came up with a big defensive play in the final seconds as the Bucks inched closer to securing a playoff berth with a 95-93 victory over the pesky Cleveland Cavaliers. Looking for their first four-game winning streak since a five-game run in early January, the Bucks had to be happy at the sight of the Cavaliers (14-61), who have the NBA's worst record. But the Cavaliers played an inspired game and found themselves tied at 90-90 with 42 seconds remaining following a jumper by Ricky Davis, who scored 26 points. Sam Cassell gave the Bucks the lead for good 20 seconds later, hitting a tough fadeaway jumper over the taller Davis. Following a timeout, Bucks coach George Karl inserted the 6-11 Johnson for defense, a move that paid an immediate dividend. "Sam Cassell made a big play, he doesn't have two rings for nothing," Cavs coach Keith Smart said. "We got as close as we could and then we didn't make the right plays down the stretch." The 6-7 Davis tried to drive the lane, but Johnson stepped out on defense and came up with a steal at the foul line. He got dribbled to near half-court and got the ball to Redd, who made two free throws for a 94-90 lead with 15 seconds to go. "They were running a pick-and-roll with Davis and I just got my hand in there and poked the ball away," Johnson said. "When I got the ball, I just tried getting the ball past half-court. My teammates and coaches gave me some flak for that one." "I didn't really see the play," Cassell said. "I just looked up and saw Ervin dribbling down the court with the ball. That was quite exciting. It was a big steal though and helped us get the win." After Davis hit a 3-pointer with seven seconds left, Redd made 1-of-2 from the line four seconds later. Cleveland guard Milt Palacio missed a desperation shot from near half-court as time expired. Redd also grabbed a career-high 12 rebounds for the Bucks, who swept the season series from the Cavaliers for the first time since the 1981-82 season. Desmond Mason and Gary Payton each scored 18 points for Milwaukee (38-39), which moved three games in front of the retiring Jordan and the Washington Wizards for the Eastern Conference's final playoff berth with five games left. "We didn't play particularly bad but our energy was low a little bit," said Cassell, who finished with 12 points. "We took it for granted. We beat this team, but we did not beat them the way we wanted to." Zydrunas Ilgauskas had 18 points and 11 rebounds for the Cavaliers, who have lost 18 straight road games and five in a row overall. Cleveland needs two wins in its last seven games to avoid its worst record in franchise history. A candidate for NBA Sixth Man of the Year, Redd provided his club with a spark to start the fourth quarter. He scored eight points in an 11-4 run to start the quarter that he capped with a driving layup, giving the Bucks a 78-71 advantage with 8:09 to play. "I'm just trying to take advantage of my opportunities," Redd said. "Tonight was one of those times and I was able to do some good things that helped our team get an important win." But the Bucks could not put away the Cavaliers, who rallied behind Davis. He scored eight points in a 14-8 surge, pulling the Cavs within 86-85 with 3:44 remaining. Davis, who took a shot at the opposing basket in a March 16 game against Utah in order to try to get a triple-double, did not hesitate to question his teammates after the Cavs' latest loss. "Some kids have to learn how to play and come together as a team," he said. We just have to stick to our game plan, stay humble and do the best that we can for the remainder of the season." "We didn't do a great job of finishing them off when we had the chance," Cassell said. Toni Kukoc added 17 points off the bench for the Bucks, who shot 42 percent (32-of-79) and turned 19 turnovers by the Cavaliers into 17 points. Milwaukee committed just eight turnovers that Cleveland converted into nine points. A jumper by Tim Thomas gave the Bucks their biggest lead at 37-29 with 5:10 left in the first half. But the Cavs closed to 45-43 at the break behind 11 points from Davis and 10 from Ilgauskas. The Cavs took their biggest lead at 63-57 with 3:04 left in the third quarter on a basket by rookie Carlos Boozer, who finished with 11 points and 10 rebounds. Led by Boozer and Ilgauskas, the Cavs held a 52-44 edge on the boards.
