GAME RECAP

Ray Allen scored a career-high 35 points and the Milwaukee Bucks took advantage of a potential serious injury to New York Knicks All-Star center Patrick Ewing in a 98-78 victory that snapped a season-high five-game losing streak.

Glenn Robinson added 27 points for the Bucks, who used two huge bursts and did not allow a field goal for more than 11 minutes to win for the first time since December 7th against Seattle. Milwaukee has won two straight at home against New York after dropping seven in a row to the Knicks at the Bradley Center.

"It was a very good win," Bucks coach Chris Ford said. "It was nice to stop the slide. The defense was outstanding and showed that the players still reamin confident. We're slowly building into a good defensive team."

Ewing suffered a dislocated bone in his right wrist late in the first half and did not return. After a slow start, he averaged 24.8 points and 11.7 rebounds over the last six games.

Ewing, who scored 12 points, will be evaluated further Sunday, when the Knicks return home, having lost seven of their last eight road games. Allan Houston scored 15 points for New York, which missed 20 of 24 shots during one stretch.

"A lot of teams have got the job done with their good players out of the lineup," Knicks coach Jeff Van Gundy said. "Anytime a player like that is down, I feel bad for him. We need everybody to play better and harder together."

Allen was 11-of-18 from the field, including 5-of-6 from three-point range. He bounced back from a terrible game Friday in Toronto, shooting 1-of-10 in a 92-91 loss.

"Last night it really didn't happen," he said. "Tonight, the more I passed the ball, the more it came back to me. We lost five in a row and came out here tonight with a positive attitude. The last couple of games, ther was something that kept us from winning, but tonight we put it all together."

Houston's fast-break dunk gave the Knicks a 21-18 lead with 1:48 left in the first quarter before they went cold for nearly two periods.

Robinson scored seven points in a 19-2 burst, including a jumper that gave Milwaukee a 37-23 lead with 4:30 left in the second quarter. New York's only points during the stretch were a pair of free throws by John Starks.

A three-pointer by Larry Johnson with 2:38 remaining ended the Knicks' field-goal drought at 11:10 and cut the deficit to 40-34. But the Bucks immediately began a 20-3 run that carried deep into the third quarter.

Milwaukee led 44-34 at halftime as New York shot just 23 percent (3-of-13) in the second quarter. Things got even worse with 24 seconds left when Ewing went airborne for an alley-oop pass and was shoved by Bucks center Andrew Lang. Ewing landed on his wrist and tailbone and X-rays revealed the dislocation.

"I'm very confident in our guyts that they can pick it up and get the job done," Ewing said.

"We've played without him before but not for a long length of time," Starks said. "When you lose a franchise player, obviously it's a big loss."

Allen scored eight points in the burst, which Robinson capped with two free throws for a 60-37 lead with 5:32 remaining in the third quarter. The Knicks opened the period by missing nine of their first 10 shots.

"When Ewing left it really hurt them," Robinson said. "That really took the post away. New York is an aggressive team and we were able to play our game and hold them off in the second half."

The Knicks got no closer than 16 points in the last 17 minutes.

Tyrone Hill had nine points and 10 rebounds and Ervin Johnson added nine and 10 for the Bucks, who shot 48 percent (35-of-72) from the field and held a 47-33 rebounding advantage.

Chris Childs scored 12 points and Starks and Johnson added 10 apiece for the Knicks, who shot 38 percent (28-of-73), including 4-of-13 from behind the arc.
