Game Story

CHARLOTTE, North Carolina (Ticker) -- Dell Curry, the leading scorer in Charlotte Hornets' history, reminded his former team of what it has been missing.

Curry burned the Hornets for 18 points and buried numerous back-breaking jumpers, leading the Milwaukee Bucks to their third straight victory, 102-94.

The Hornets trailed for most of the contest. When they tried to make a comeback, Curry often was there to thwart the attempt.

"It was very satisfying to beat the team that did not want you," Curry said. "It was fun tonight. I got the chance to play and talk a lot."

Milwaukee's lead was down to 92-86 with less than four minutes remaining when Curry drained a long fallaway jumper. After a free throw by Charlotte's Eddie Jones, Curry hit a jumper from the left wing and had a glare ready for the Hornets' bench.

"Can Dell Curry shoot or what?" asked Bucks coach George Karl. "Does it surprise you when he misses? It surprises me."

Curry helped put the exclamation point on the win. With the Hornets running the fast break, Curry drove the lane and threw a no-look pass over his head back to Allen for a thunderous dunk that built a 102-88 cushion with 1:25 to play.

Curry had been the only remaining member of the original Hornets before signing with the Bucks during the offseason. He is Charlotte's all-time leader with 9,839 points, 929 3-pointers and 701 games played.

"He's a good shooter," said Hornets coach Paul Silas. "We gave him open looks and he hit the shots."

Allen scored 20 points and outplayed counterpart Jones, who again struggled with just 13 points on 4-of-11 shooting and five turnovers. On Tuesday against Boston, Jones took just five shots and finished with seven points as he battled foul trouble.

Eldridge Recasner, Curry's replacement off the bench for the Hornets, hit five 3-pointers and scored a career-high 26 points. He also committed four of the Hornets' 17 turnovers, which led to 31 points for Milwaukee.

Recasner played well offensively in the absence of injured guard Bobby Phills, but is not quite as good on the defensive end. Phills missed his second straight game with a pulled left groin and the Hornets have been awful defensively without him.

Charlotte gave up 109 points Tuesday as Boston shot 59 percent from the floor. In this contest, the Hornets allowed Milwaukee to connect on better than 61 percent (44-of-72).

"Bobby Phills is key. His loss really showed in the last two games," Recasner said. "We still have to come out and compete. He is our best defensive player and usually covers their best player. Since he is out, that's why teams are shooting better."

"Bobby Phills brings leadership and defensive play and team chemistry," said Hornets rookie Ricky Davis. "We are just playing and waiting for him to come back."

The Bucks have won three of their last four road games and are within two of Indiana for first place in the Central Division.

"The spirit and attitude of this team is unusual for the NBA," Karl added. "One of my assistants told me that it's the first time he couldn't get into a huddle because all the players were participating. This team is really together and they're serious about getting better."

A dunk by Jones gave Charlotte its only lead, 21-20, with 2:26 left in the opening quarter. Curry helped put Milwaukee in front for good by feeding Vinny Del Negro for a jumper.

The Bucks were clinging to a 28-24 lead early in the second period when Curry sparked a 9-0 spurt with a 3-pointer. Chris Gatling followed with a pair of inside baskets before Curry's 22-footer made it 37-24.

Recasner kept Charlotte close with 16 points in the second quarter, including a 3-pointer that trimmed the deficit to 51-47 with 2:21 remaining. Milwaukee quickly regained control with eight straight points, including a 3-pointer by Allen. The Bucks went on for a 59-51 halftime lead.

The Hornets were down by 15 points early in the third before pulling within 71-64 with 4:37 left on another 3-pointer by Recasner. Allen's jumper triggered a quarter-closing 12-3 run, which included 3-pointers by Glenn Robinson and Curry.

Curry keyed a bench that scored 46 points, including eight each from Del Negro, Gatling and Ervin Johnson.

"Our bench was real crucial tonight," Allen said. "We have a lot of guys playing in the 20-minute range and that spells relief for us. We have several lineups we can go to and when one is down, the others can pick us up."

Robinson chipped in 14 points for Milwaukee, which atoned for an ugly 7-of-15 effort from the foul line by hitting 7-of-14 from 3-point range. The Bucks committed 21 turnovers, leading to 30 points for the Hornets, but owned a 37-30 edge on the glass.
