GAME RECAP

The Cleveland Cavaliers extended their league-best winning streak to 10 games as reigning Player of the Week Wesley Person scored 27 points in a 79-77 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks.

Shawn Kemp added seven of his 18 points in the fourth quarter for Cleveland, which has its longest winning streak since taking 11 straight in December 1994.

Kemp hit 1-of-2 from the foul line with 29 seconds left to snap a 77-77 tie before Person added a free throw with seven seconds to go. Milwaukee's Glenn Robinson, who scored 20 points, took the ensuing inbounds pass but rookie Brevin Knight stole the ball and dribbled out the clock.

"My thought was if Glenn put it down it would give me a chance to make the play," Knight said.

"We found a way to hang on and did everything we could," Cavs coach Mike Fratello said. "We got the big steal when we had to."

Terrell Brandon and Tyrone Hill, who went to the Bucks from Cleveland in the offseason trade for Kemp, played against their former team for the first time. Brandon had 11 points, nine assists and seven rebounds but left late in the third quarter with an apparent left ankle injury. Hill contributed 11 points and 14 rebounds.

Hill's layup gave the Bucks a 71-69 lead with 6:23 to play but the Cavs ran off the next six points. Kemp had a dunk and Derek Anderson, who scored 12 points, hit two free throws. One of Knight's seven steals led to Person's fast-break dunk with 3:52 remaining for a 75-71 edge.

Ray Allen scored 19 points for Milwaukee and tied the game with back-to-back jumpers before Knight found Kemp for an easy dunk wtih 46 seconds to go.

"We laid back on what could have happened and we didn't make things happen," Allen said.

Robinson, who had seven rebounds, sank two free throws to knot the game, 77-77. After Kemp's foul shot, Robinson had his shot blocked by Zydrunas Ilgauskas, who tied up Michael Curry. The 7-3 Ilgauskas easily won the jump ball, tipping it back to Person, who made 1-of-2 from the line to secure the win.

"We can't worry about the officiating, we just have to keep on playing," Robinson said. "We could've won tonight but we came out soft in the fourth quarter."

Cleveland pulled out its seventh straight road win despite making just 20-of-31 free throws and getting outrebounded, 40-24. The Cavs scored 25 points off 26 Milwaukee turnovers while the Bucks managed just 12 points off 18 turnovers.

Brandon, who was 4-of-12 from the field, was carried off the floor when he drove the lane and his left foot landed awkwardly on Person's foot.

"Terrell just has a sprain, we think, but it will be evaluated further tomorrow," Bucks coach Chris Ford said. "However, right now, we're pretty optimistic."
