GAME RECAP

Glen Rice scored 14 of his 27 points in the fourth quarter as the Charlotte Hornets stayed hot with their 15th victory in 16 games, a 94-80 triumph over the reeling Milwaukee Bucks.

Rice scored eight points in 82 seconds during a 12-0 burst that opened the final period and gave the Hornets the lead for good. He scored as many points in the fourth quarter as the Bucks, who shot just 25 percent (5-of-20).

David Wesley scored 21 points and Matt Geiger added 12 and 15 rebounds for the Hornets, who shot 65 percent (13-of-20) in the final period and held their eighth straight opponent under 90 points. Charlotte won its fifth consecutive game and moved within three games of third-place Indiana in the Eastern Conference.

"We realized that defense can take us a long way," Rice said. "If we play good defense, we're in every game. When we go in there and take care of business like we can, we're a very tough team."

Ray Allen and Elliot Perry each scored 18 points for the Bucks, who have lost 10 of their last 11 games. Milwaukee, which is without injured starters Glenn Robinson, Terrell Brandon and Tyrone Hill, was held to 85 points or less for the 11th time since February 1st.

"Over the last few games, we have been playing well," Bucks coach Chris Ford said. "There has been no quit in this team. We're just undermanned. We battled hard but we had to play against one of the hottest teams in the NBA."

The Hornets trailed 66-63 after three quarters, but a layup by Wesley with 11:05 remaining started the decisive burst. While defended by rookie Jerald Honeycutt, Rice buried three-pointers 22 seconds apart, then added a dunk with 9:06 remaining.

"Glen and David made some big shots and got us rolling in the second half," Hornets coach Dave Cowens said. "We've been really turning it up lately in the fourth. Glen rose to the occasion big-time for us tonight."

"When you're having to play against Glen Rice, you cannot give him any room, no daylight at all," said Bucks center Ervin Johnson, who had 17 rebounds. "He really hurt us there in the fourth quarter."

A dunk by Bobby Phills capped the burst at 75-66 with 8:30 to play.

A free throw by Honeycutt pulled Milwaukee within 77-73 with 5:25 to go, but Wesley made a layup and three-pointer, giving Charlotte an 82-73 advantage with 4:15 remaining. The Hornets closed the game with a 7-0 run.

"Tonight was one of those late-year muscle games," Cowens said. "I think we tired them out a little tonight. Our guys hung tough. There was a lot of banging and their plan was to slow it down."

Vlade Divac scored 14 points and Anthony Mason pulled down 10 rebounds for Charlotte, which shot 48 percent (38-of-80) from the field and committed just 10 turnovers. The Hornets were 6-of-12 from three-point range, including 3-of-3 from Rice.

"We didn't play as well as we'd like to, but we got the job done," Geiger said. "Vlade's getting his jumper back, which is important for the rest of the season."

Honeycutt scored 15 points and Armon Gilliam added 13 and 10 boards for Milwaukee, which shot just 38 percent (33-of-86) and was beaten on the boards, 48-47.

Allen scored nine points in the first quarter as the Bucks took a 23-22 lead. A three-point play by Johnson gave Milwaukee a 32-31 edge with 6:53 to go in the second quarter, but Geiger scored six points in a 15-4 run, including a layup that gave the Hornets a 46-36 advantage with 1:58 left.

The Bucks closed to 48-44 at halftime. A jumper by Wesley gave Charlotte a 52-47 lead four minutes into the third quarter, but Gilliam, Johnson and Perry scored four points each in a 15-5 spurt as Milwaukee reclaimed the lead.
