Game Story

ATLANTA (Ticker) -- The Milwaukee Bucks learned you do not push Dikembe Mutombo around in his house.

The 7-2 center finished two blocked shots shy of a triple-double and Mookie Blaylock scored 16 points as the Atlanta Hawks stifled the Milwaukee Bucks, 85-70, running their winning streak to a season-high six games.

Mutombo had 18 points, 18 rebounds and a season-high eight blocks as he helped Atlanta set the tone from the outset. He had 12 points, seven rebounds and three rejections in the opening quarter as the Hawks built a 22-14 lead.

"There are times offensively when we can go to `D' when they double," Hawks coach Lenny Wilkens said of Mutombo. "He has to pass the ball and does a good job of it. He got off to the great start and was a defensive factor for us and allowed us to step our defense up and cover people."

In the second quarter, Mutombo became entangled with Bucks rookie center Robert Traylor and shoved him out of the way as the two tried to make their way upcourt.

"This time of the year is the best time to play the game," said Mutombo. "We wanted to go out and enjoy ourselves as much as we could -- win all the rest of them and maybe win our division. If that happens, it would be a dream come true. If we can continue to play like this and keep the train moving, there's a good chance for us."

"Mutombo is a factor," admitted Bucks coach George Karl. "The first two games we played against them, we had more flow and rhythm to get Mutombo in a different kind of game. Tonight, Mutombo was huge, his defense was big-time. We could never break into penetrating the ball or playing a faster game that could help us."

Blaylock had six points in a 12-2 run that put away the game in the fourth quarter, extending an eight-point lead to 80-62. The Hawks, who defeated Milwaukee for the first time in three tries this season, are 3 1/2 games ahead of the fourth-place Bucks in the Eastern Conference.

"We have a goal. Our goal is to play as well as we can until the end of the season and see what happens, see where we can finish," said Wilkens. "We certainly want to be ready to play in the playoffs."

Ray Allen scored 21 points and Glenn Robinson added 18 for the Bucks, who fell one-half game behind fifth-place Philadelphia in the East. Milwaukee has lost seven straight road games and four of its last six overall.

"A stale game," said Karl. "Atlanta's tuned into defense. We didn't come up with any good answers offensively. The free throw line, officiating, it kind of made the game slow, sloppy and ugly."

The Bucks trailed by as many as 12 points in the third quarter but closed within 64-58 at the end of the period. Blaylock hit a jumper before Allen made two free throws to pull Milwaukee within 70-62 at the 5:21 mark of the fourth.

Mutombo hit a hook shot before Chris Gatling missed two free throws for the Bucks. Blaylock made another jumper and 3-pointer around a free throw by Steve Smith before Grant Long's fast-break layup gave the Hawks an 80-62 lead with 2:33 to play.

All five starters scored in double figures for the Hawks as Chris Crawford had 14 points while Long and Smith netted 13 apiece. Atlanta shot 41 percent (29-of-70) from the field and held a commanding 46-28 edge on the boards. The Hawks also outscored the Bucks 34-16 in the paint.

Tim Thomas had 12 points for Milwaukee, which shot just 36 percent (26-of-72). The Bucks were outscored 24-16 from the foul line and had 11 blocks.

"We probably did take too many jumpers," said Robinson. "We're a jump-shooting team. Sometimes we have to go to the hole a little bit more and go at the big fella."
