Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- Glenn Robinson collected 26 points and 17 rebounds and hit the go-ahead basket with 1:17 to play as the Milwaukee Bucks were good enough in an ugly fourth quarter to defeat the shorthanded Cleveland Cavaliers, 79-75.

Robinson followed his own miss to put Milwaukee in front, 75-73, and Ray Allen sank four free throws down the stretch as Milwaukee jumped into a tie with Philadelphia for fifth place in the Eastern Conference.

Allen contributed 16 points, helping the Bucks bounce back from Wednesday's heartbreaking overtime loss to the Central Division-leading Indiana Pacers.

"It almost had a playoff feel, and we know what we have to get in order," Robinson said. "Now we're in a must-win situation and we know what we did wrong and we'll go from that."

Rookie Earl Boykins and Danny Ferry missed 3-pointers in the final minute for Cleveland. The 5-5 Boykins was playing in place of starting point guard Brevin Knight, who fractured a bone in his left hand in the third quarter. Ferry was inserted in the starting lineup to replace Shawn Kemp, who missed his first game of the season due to a sprained left foot.

"It was unfortunate we lose Brevin tonight, he was doing a terrific job for us," said Cavs coach Mike Fratello. "We put forth a tremendous effort tonight from everyone."

The injuries could not come at a worse time for the Cavaliers, who fell one game behind the New York Knicks for the final playoff spot in the East with seven to play.

Cedric Henderson and Wesley Person each scored 19 points to pace Cleveland (21-22), which has dropped four in a row and fell under .500 for the first time since April 1.

"We came in shorthanded tonight and we went out and tried to compete," Person said. "We just fell short. Glenn had a terrific performance tonight. There are no moral victories, but we're shorthanded and still in the playoff hunt."

The Cavaliers owned a 66-64 lead heading into the fourth but went scoreless for the first 6:59 of the quarter. But the Bucks also had trouble hitting, scoring their first points of the period on a jumper by Dell Curry with 6:20 to play.

Milwaukee outscored Cleveland by a 15-9 margin in the fourth quarter. The Cavs made only 3-of-18 (17 percent) from the field in the final period before Henderson's meaningless jumper with a second to go. The Bucks were not much better, going 4-of-18 from the floor.

"Defensively, we did what we had to do in the fourth quarter," said Bucks coach George Karl. "It was an ugly, tough win."

Allen fed Curry for a 3-pointer and had a driving dunk that gave the Bucks a 73-69 lead with 3:38 remaining. Cleveland came back to tie the game 50 seconds later as Boykins found Person for a lay-in and drove for a transition layup.

The key sequence came 90 seconds later. Robinson rebounded a miss by Boykins and blew a short jumper. Michael Curry grabbed the rebound and missed a tough layup, but Robinson got to the loose ball and hit a 13-footer.

"Glenn Robinson was huge with both offensive and defensive rebounding," Karl added.

Shortly after Knight left, Cavs reserve Bob Sura also was forced to exit the contest. He was ejected after tossing the ball toward an official after being called for an offensive foul.

"With Brevin leaving, it was a bad decision on my part to throw the ball at the ref," Sura said. "I really didn't mean to throw it at the referee."

Already with Kemp and forward Corie Blount sidelined due to injuries, Cleveland was down to eight players for the final 18 minutes. Rookie Ryan Stack, who played only 55 minutes in 10 games this season, contributed six points and six boards in 22 minutes.

Ferry and Boykins combined to shoot just 4-of-17 for 10 points and the Cavs connected on only 37 percent (28-of-76) overall. Knight had nine points and nine assists before departing.

Robinson made all six of his free throws and Allen sank all five attempts as Milwaukee went 21-of-23 from the foul line. The Bucks shot 41 percent from the field (28-of-68) and committed 20 turnovers but had a 45-36 edge on the glass.

Person scored 14 points in the first half, including four 3-pointers, as Cleveland took a 48-43 lead into the break.
