Game Recap

Ray Allen led a balanced attack with 21 points and the Milwaukee Bucks held off the Denver Nuggets, 106-100, for just their third win in the last 15 games.

Rookie Jerald Honeycutt had a career-high 20 points, including 5-of-6 shooting from three-point range, Elliot Perry added 18 and seven assists and Armon Gilliam contributed 18 points and nine rebounds for Milwaukee, which had lost nine of its previous 10 games on the road. The Bucks snapped a six-game losing streak in Denver, winning there for the first time since March 23rd, 1991.

"I got my stroke going today and they gave me some wide-open looks on my first three touches," Honeycutt said. "I don't think they thought I could hit the outside shot, so I just kept shooting the ball. I'm just trying to take advantage of my minutes."

Danny Fortson had 24 points and 10 rebounds and Cory Alexander added a season-high 23 points and six assists for the Nuggets, who were coming off Friday's win over Golden State and were denied in an attempt to win back-to-back games for only the second time this season. Denver won back-to-back games on March 12th and 14th, defeating Vancouver and Portland.

"I thought we played hard tonight, but defensively we were just not good enough," Denver coach Bill Hanzlik said. "Honeycutt just killed us. His three-pointers were a big difference in the game. I thought we had enough offense to win but we fouled too much and every close call went their way."

LaPhonso Ellis recorded 18 points and 11 boards for Denver (9-64), which has nine games remaining to record one more win and avoid joining the 1972-73 Philadelphia 76ers as the losingest teams in NBA history. The Nuggets play five of their last nine games on the road, including Friday's contest at Utah.

The Bucks shot 51 percent (36-for-70) from the field and outrebounded Denver, 38-35, sweeping the season series for the first time since 1988-89.

"Jerald has been getting a few more minutes and he responded in a big way," Milwaukee coach Chris Ford said. "He's got three-point range. Our guys really stepped up and we got solid play from a lot of guys. Denver had three or four days of rest and it was a game they thought they had a good chance to win."

Denver suffered its 30th loss in 37 home games this season, establishing a new franchise record. The Nuggets went 2-28 against the Eastern Conference and are 0-37 when allowing at least 100 points.

The Nuggets, with Fortson scoring 13 points, took a 51-48 lead at halftime.

The game was tied three times over the first five minutes of the third quarter before Denver took its last lead, 63-61, on a pair of free throws by Fortson with 6:53 to go.

Milwaukee got the next six points in 87 seconds, capped by Michael Curry's 20-foot jumper that made it 67-63. Denver fought back to tie it twice before the quarter ended, the last time with 2:23 remaining at 69-69, after Johnny Newman made a pair of free throws.

The Bucks regained the lead for good 16 seconds later when Curry hit two free throws and Allen followed with a three-pointer. After Denver's Cory Alexander drilled a three-pointer, Jamie Feick connected on a hook shot to give the Bucks a 76-72 lead at the end of the period.

Milwaukee's lead grew to 84-74 after an eight-footer by Perry, but Denver made a final push and cut the deficit to 89-88 with 4:58 remaining on a jumper by Ellis. The Bucks scored seven of the next nine points, capped by a pair of free throws by Gilliam to move ahead, 96-89.

Gilliam was 8-of-10 from the line over the last 4:12 as the Bucks sank 12-of-14 free throws down the stretch.
