GAME RECAP

Reserve Armon Gilliam scored 10 of his 15 points in the fourth quarter, including the last six for the Milwaukee Bucks, who allowed just 33 points in the second half of an 83-81 victory over the Detroit Pistons, their third straight win.

Gilliam started his run with 3:24 to go, giving the Bucks a 79-78 lead with a short jumper. Detroit regained the lead on a lay-in by Grant Hill, who was fouled on the play but missed the free throw. Gilliam answered with a pair of jump shots around a free throw by Hill to lift Milwaukee to victory.

"It was a good win, but it was a struggle," said Milwaukee coach Chris Ford. "We're figuring out how to stay in games. I'd rather start slow than end slow any day."

Hill made all three attempts from the line before the stretch run. But after failing to convert on the three-point opportunity, he also missed 1-of-2 foul shots between Gilliam's jumpers. The Pistons had one basket in the final 4:40.

"I was kind of scared throughout the game," admitted Hill. "We were playing better than them but we couldn't hold the lead. We missed a few shots and rebounds then nothing seemed to go right. They had a couple of big shots and stops and that was the game."

Glenn Robinson netted 14 points and Terrell Brandon added 13 for the Bucks, who matched their longest winning streak of the season and pulled within one game of .500 (21-22).

Dumars scored 20 points and Hill added 19 and 13 rebounds for Detroit, which was held to its lowest total since an 83-78 loss at New York on December 16th. Jerry Stackhouse also scored 19 points, but was shut out in the final quarter.

Tyrone Hill had 11 points and 12 rebounds for the Bucks, who shot 44 percent (32-of-72) from the field but were outrebounded, 47-40. The 5-11 Brandon had five assists and four rebounds, including a crucial offensive board off Ray Allen's miss with 54 seconds left that gave the Bucks a new shot clock.

"I think we're getting better at closing out games," said Brandon. "We're definitely not where we want to be, though. Particularly, we're not doing it offensively. It was our defense that was big."

Milwaukee also retained possession when another miss by Allen with 26 seconds to go went out of bounds off Detroit. After the shot clock expired on the Bucks' third chance in the final minute, the Pistons inbounded from halfcourt with two seconds remaining but were unable to get off a shot.

Don Reid, starting in the middle for the ailing Brian Williams, had 10 points and Malik Sealy added eight off the bench for the Pistons, who shot 42 percent (31-of-74). Williams was a late scratch with tendinitis in his left knee.

Sealy hit the opening shot of the fourth quarter to give the Pistons a 68-62 advantage, but Tyrone Hill hit 1-of-2 from the line to spark a 9-0 spurt by the Bucks. Milwaukee's Ervin Johnson sank a free throw with 9:15 left to move the Bucks ahead, 69-68, for the first of nine leads changes in the period. Elliot Perry capped the run 55 seconds later with a jumper.

"It's been our season, we're up and we can't finish off the game," lamented Detroit coach Doug Collins. "Armon made some big shots in the second half. On the last play, we wanted to get the ball to Joe (Dumars). Unfortunately, it didn't happen."

Johnson had nine points and three blocks for Milwaukee, which committed just 12 turnovers but hit only 16-of-30 free throws.

Grant Hill scored 14 points in the first half to pace the Pistons to a 48-42 lead.
