GAME RECAP

Terrell Brandon scored 21 points and reserve Michael Curry hit a pair of key jumpers down the stretch as the Milwaukee Bucks hung on to post their season-high sixth straight victory, 82-78 over the New York Knicks.

Curry, who sank all four attempts from the field, turned away a pair of late threats. He hit an 18-footer with 4 1/2 minutes left, extending Milwaukee to a 76-72 lead. After Allan Houston pulled New York within 78-76 with three minutes remaining, Curry answered 20 seconds later with a 16-footer that gave the Bucks some much-needed room for error.

"Our top scorers were in foul trouble and Michael Curry stepped it up," said Milwaukee's Tyrone Hill. "If we play together and don't pout, we can win games. When our top players are not respodning we need the team to pull together."

With an 80-78 lead and the ball, Milwaukee turned it over for the third straight possession when Chris Childs poked away an inbounds pass and Charles Oakley recovered with 17 seconds to go. However, after a timeout, Houston missed a baseline 10-footer and Tyrone Hill grabbed the rebound and hit a pair of free throws to seal the win.

Ray Allen scored 17 points, Glenn Robinson 15 and Hill 12 and 10 rebounds for Milwaukee, which is riding its longest streak since the 1990-91 season. The Bucks shot 45 percent (32-of-71) from the field in beating the Knicks for the second time in six days.

Houston finished with 21 points and seven rebounds and Larry Johnson netted 20 points for New York, which hit 43 percent (30-of-69) percent from the field while suffering its fourth straight loss to the Bucks.

Johnson had 16 points and Houston 15 in the first half for the Knicks, who scored just 31 points in the final 24 minutes. New York went especially cold in the fourth quarter, hitting just 5-of-20 shots.

"We went in at the half and they were shooting at better than 50 percent," said Curry. "We need to keep teams around 45 percent to win."

Chris Mills had 14 points off the bench while fellow reserve John Starks, who hit a team-record nine three-pointers against the Bucks on Thursday, was held to just 10 points on 2-of-10 shooting.

New York took its last lead with a 17-4 burst spanning the second and third quarters. Charlie Ward, who had just five points and two assists, gave the Knicks a 51-45 advantage with a jump shot 48 seconds into the second half.

But the Bucks, who turned 24 Knicks turnovers into 23 points, exploded for 13 of the next 15 points to take a 58-53 edge. Brandon touched off the burst with a breakaway layup and had six points in the surge.

"We had a lot of turnovers," said Oakley, who had 13 rebounds but was scoreless. "We need to make our shots, but that's basketball. They got steals and easy baskets."

The Knicks whittled away, finally forcing a 72-72 deadlock on two free throws by Houston with 6:35 left in the fourth period. Just 19 seconds later, Hill put the Bucks ahead for good with a short post-up jumper.

With 27 seconds to play, Johnson's follow shot sliced the margin to two, but New York failed to capitalize on Milwaukee's final turnover.
