Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- The Milwaukee Bucks used a strange combination to continue their winning ways at home. Toni Kukoc scored 17 points to lead a solid bench effort as the Bucks extended their home winning streak to 10 games with an 86-83 victory over the New Jersey Nets. Trailing, 57-47, with under four minutes left in the third quarter, the Bucks' bench help get them back in the game as coach Terry Porter called on the unit of Marcus Haislip, Daniel Santiago, Desmond Mason, Erick Strickland and rookie T.J. Ford. Porter's move paid off as the Bucks ended the quarter with an 11-1 run. Kukoc was the spark in the fourth quarter, when he scored 10 points, including two clutch free throws with 8.1 seconds left that gave the Bucks an 84-81 lead. "We were in a funk most of the night, then went to the bench and got some energy from Erick, got some energy from Marcus, Toni hit some threes to get us back in it," Porter said. "Great job by Erick Strickland tonight, great job by Toni, great job by Desmond," Bucks guard Michael Redd said. "Marcus Haislip came in and played an extraordinary game for us. Those guys are ready. Practices are pretty heated, and any night, anybody could show up." After the Bucks' bench combined for just nine points in the first half, they totaled 39 over the final two quarters. Milwaukee had just 38 points from its starters. "When the Bucks bring their bench in, it raised their intensity level," Nets coach Byron Scott said. "Those guys take it to a different level and we didn't match it." Jason Kidd was anything but clutch for the Nets. He missed his final 10 shots, including a potential go-ahead jumper with under 10 seconds left and an airball from 3-point range as time expired. "I missed all of them, that is just part of the game," said Kidd, who went 3-of-14 from the field. "The layup, the shot with eight seconds left, even the 3-pointer was good luck, I might have rushed it a bit. You can't ask for better looks, especially on the road. I just couldn't get them to fall." "I think you get accustomed to Jason Kidd making shots like that, so you get a little surprised," Scott said. "I thought the one with eight seconds left he was indecisive. He got caught in the middle. That is the one you get accustomed to him making." Kukoc sank two free throws with 2:52 remaining to give the Bucks the lead for good at 78-76. After an offensive foul by Kerry Kittles, Mason drilled a jumper for a four-point advantage. Kittles' 3-pointer with 39 seconds to go did pull the Nets within 82-81. Strickland missed on the other end and Kidd drove into the lane but was long and wide on an eight-footer with about eight seconds to go. Kukoc was fouled before he sank two foul shots. Kenyon Martin, returning from a two-game suspension, scored 20 of his 24 points in the second half and grabbed 10 rebounds for the Nets, who lost for just the third time in their last 10 games. Michael Redd netted 15 points and Strickland added 11 for Milwaukee, which came out stagnant and shot just 31 percent (12-of-39) in the first half. But the Bucks were aggressive in the second half and made 19-of-21 free throws after intermission.
