Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- Ray Allen scored 14 of his 19 points in the first quarter, including seven during a game-opening 23-2 run, as the Milwaukee Bucks cruised to 115-86 victory over the Detroit Pistons.

Glenn Robinson, who scored 18 points, gave the Bucks a 21-point lead with 5:25 left in the first quarter when he drained a 15-foot jumper from the left sideline. Milwaukee made its first 11 shots, connected on 17-of-20 (85 percent) in the first 12 minutes and led 40-14 entering the second quarter.

Meanwhile, Detroit went 1-of-12 from the field in the first quarter -- the lone bucket was a layup by Christian Laettner -- and came no closer than 22 points over the final three periods as the Bucks built their lead to as much as 35 points.

"They just keep surprising me, that was great basketball," said Bucks coach George Karl.

Laettner netted 17 points and Jerry Stackhouse contributed 13 for Detroit, which has allowed 100 points in three of the last four games after not doing so in 19 in a row.

"We have to play 48 minutes," Pistons coach Alvin Gentry said. "The best part of tonight's game is that the buzzer went off. I'm not going to yell because they are professionals. We've got to get tougher."

After rookie Robert Traylor opened the scoring with a layup, Don Reid made the second of two free throws for the Pistons. Allen and Haywoode Workman quickly drained jumpers and Milwaukee had a 6-1 lead.

Bison Dele made one free throw with 9:29 left in the quarter, but it marked Detroit's last point for nearly 4 1/2 minutes until Laettner's layup as the Bucks scored 17 straight to take control.

Workman, who dished out eight assists, started the 17-0 run with a jumper and then fed Allen for an easy dunk. Traylor had a short hook shot, Tim Thomas converted a layup and Robinson drilled a 16-footer from the right corner to make it 16-2 with 8:42 left in the quarter.

"We passed the ball very well early on," Karl added. "I've got to give Workman a lot of credit, his leadership is definitely out there. Glenn and Ray came out great and the bench has always been solid."

After Grant Hill missed a jumper for the Pistons, Allen drained a 3-pointer from the left wing. Robinson followed with two jumpers to make it 23-2 and the game was essentially over.

"From the jump, we played well," Traylor said. "We started out with great defense and everything else fell into place. Ray and Glenn had a great start so everybody followed their lead. But it all started with defense."

Chris Gatling netted 16 points and Michael Curry contributed 10 for Milwaukee, which shot 57 percent (42-of-74), including 6-of-13 from beyond the arc, and turned 20 Detroit turnovers into 24 points.

"Everything went our way tonight," said Robinson. "We were due for a game like this. The first and second unit both came out playing well. We all jelled together tonight."

Behind eight rebounds from Jerome Williams, who also scored 12 points, the Pistons held a 42-40 advantage on the boards. But they shot just 31 percent (21-of-68) and were 3-of-13 from 3-point range.

"The Bucks started hot and we weren't able to to come back," Laettner said. "We had a hard time coming back all night tonight. We have to play better and fight until the end."

Detroit's biggest lead of the game occured with 1:53 remaining in the second quarter, when two free throws by Curry made it 64-29. The Bucks came within 75-53 with 6:12 left in the third quarter on a hook shot by Reid, but by that time it was to late.

"The bottom line is we got thumped to the finish," Hill said. "We are a soft team. They played hard in the first quarter and we didn't, plain and simple."

The Pistons scored nearly half of their points on free throws, going 41-of-57 from the foul line. Milwaukee connected on 25-of-34 from the line.
