GAME RECAP

Glenn Robinson hit 7-of-9 shots from the field and scored 14 of his 31 points in the third quarter as the Milwaukee Bucks rallied for their third consecutive victory, 105-96 over the struggling Boston Celtics.

Boston, which suffered its fifth straight loss after opening the season with a win over the Chicago Bulls, built a 57-46 lead early in the third quarter on a dunk by Walter McCarty.

The Bucks, behind Robinson, chipped away during the rest of the quarter, but the Celtics were still ahead, 71-66, with a minute to go.

Milwaukee turned the game around with a 20-2 run that carried over to the first 3:18 of the fourth quarter. Robinson and Ray Allen each contributed seven points during the spurt, which helped the Bucks turn a five-point deficit into an 86-73 lead with 8:42 left. Boston got no closer than seven points the rest of the way.

"We took much better care of the ball tonight," said Milwaukee coach Chris Ford. "Glenn Robinson was on fire. He got into a groove and carried us when we were struggling. We have to come out and respond early in the game and take it to them for 48 minutes, instead of having to come back late. We can get better. I know it and the players know it, both physically and mentally."

Antoine Walker had 21 points and 17 rebounds and Ron Mercer added 17 points for the Celtics. Point guard Tyus Edney, playing in his first game for Boston after coming off the injured list, scored 11 points and had 10 assists in 26 minutes off the bench.

"It's a shame we lost, but we're getting better," said Boston coach Rick Pitino, whose team held a 51-44 lead at halftime. "One of the main reasons we lost was missed free throws. Milwaukee was 22-for-27 and we were 15-for-27.

"I like the way we played tonight, more than any other game we played so far," he continued. "We mixed our defense and shot well. We mixed our defense and shot well. The Bucks hit shots under pressure and we lost our poise for five minutes. But we're starting to look like a basketball team."

Allen finished with 20 points, including 12 in the fourth quarter, for Milwaukee, which improved to 3-1 at home. Terrell Brandon added 18 points and 11 assists and Ervin Johnson had nine rebounds.

"I felt good in the shootaround and I just made open shots," said Robinson, who finished 13-for-19 from the field. "When we were down by 11, I thought we had to do something special, and we did. We need to beat these teams at home because a loss here could hurt us later in the season."
