Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- Michael Redd and the Milwaukee Bucks appear on their way toward the playoffs. The same cannot be said of fellow Ohioan LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. Redd, a Columbus native who starred at Ohio State, scored 23 points to pace the Bucks, who took over sole possession of fourth place in the Eastern Conference with a 107-89 triumph over the Cavaliers. Former Cavalier Brian Skinner and Desmond Mason added 18 points apiece for Milwaukee (38-38), which leads New Orleans (37-38) and Miami (37-39) for fourth place and coveted home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs. "It was a great win for us," Bucks coach Terry Porter said. "Every win at this stage is good for us. The more we can get, the more we can have a greater chance to clinch that fourth spot." "We knew Miami lost tonight (at Detroit), and that helps us out," Redd said. "Tomorrow we watch New Orleans (at Portland). But we hold our own destiny now, and if we do what we're supposed to do, we'll be fine." Bucks forward Keith Van Horn, who had seven points after missing three games with a left ankle sprain, also admitted to scoreboard-watching. "I saw that Miami lost," Van Horn said. "I tried not to look until I knew we had the game under control. I'd really rather they not show those scores while we're playing, but what are you gonna do? We don't want to look back and worry about what those teams are doing - that's how you get into trouble. We just need to play great ball, and if we do that, we'll get the (No.) 4 spot." James, a star rookie from Akron, had 20 points, seven rebounds and seven assists and Carlos Boozer added 26 points and 11 rebounds. But they could not help the Cavaliers avoid a seventh loss in eight games. "We need to get wins," James said. "(But) we are in a position where we aren't going to hang our heads if we don't make the postseason." Cleveland (32-43) is in ninth place in the East, 2 1/2 games behind New York and Boston, who are tied for seventh at 35-41. "We just have to come back tomorrow," said Boozer, whose team hosts Golden State on Saturday. "Tomorrow is a big-time game for our season. These are must-wins at this point, but tomorrow is the biggest." "Tomorrow night's game, that is the season," Cleveland coach Paul Silas said. "If we win that game, we have a chance. If not, it will be tough. (But) we are still in the hunt." Milwaukee took the lead for good, 71-68, on a 3-pointer by Redd with 5:35 left in the third quarter. He scored eight more points by the end of the period to help the Bucks open an 89-78 cushion, and Cleveland got no closer than nine points in the final 12 minutes. "It was close for a while, (but) they had a spurt in the third quarter and we just couldn't get over the hump," Boozer said. Cleveland shot 51 percent from the field (39-of-76) but made only 9-of-13 free throws. Milwaukee connected on 48 percent (38-of-80) but made 25-of-32 free throws and held a 22-10 advantage in second-chance points. "Our guys did a good job of being aggressive," Porter said. "We talked about trying to attack them in the paint and we did that. For us, it was just a matter of staying aggressive, moving the ball offensively and attack the rim and get some fouls."
