Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- Glenn Robinson scored 12 of his 31 points in the fourth quarter as the Milwaukee Bucks played turnover-free basketball over the final 12 minutes en route to a 99-91 victory over the floundering Washington Wizards.

Trailing 79-74 with 9:20 to play, the Bucks held the Wizards scoreless for nearly six minutes while putting together a decisive 15-0 run. Robinson scored six points during the spurt, including one of his patented fadeaway 10-footers with 4:36 left that gave Milwaukee an 89-79 bulge.

"We didn't want to let them take such an important game from us at home," Robinson said. "We needed some offense tonight. After I got a quick breather (early in the fourth), I came back in and had help from other scorers. This helps me out a lot because I can mix up my shots."

With the win, the Bucks moved a half-game ahead of idle Detroit into sixth place in the Eastern Conference and pulled within a half-game of fifth-place Philadelphia, which also did not play.

Milwaukee has won seven of its last eight games at the Bradley Center, nearly offsetting a seven-game road losing streak.

"This team is unnerving," Milwaukee coach George Karl said. "But they win. That's what we play for. We might be a little tight. We might be a little nervous, but we make the plays. It's not exactly artistic basketball, but they're `W's.'"

Ray Allen scored 19 points and Chris Gatling added 13 and 11 rebounds off the bench for the Bucks, who won the season series from the Wizards, 2-1.

"Our intensity was incredible tonight," said Gatling. "We played with a lot of heart and it showed our rebounding and scoring. Coach Karl emphasized playoff mentality and intesity tonight. That was the difference in the game. We had it and they didn't."

Otis Thorpe scored 18 points to lead seven players in double figures for Washington, which was officially eliminated from postseason consideration with an ugly 113-84 loss in Boston on Sunday.

"The Bucks made a few plays late and we didn't do a good job against it," Thorpe said. "We played a great 44 minutes but late turnovers and misses, along with second shots, did us in."

Starting point guard Rod Strickland, who was arrested on charges of driving while intoxicated and reckless driving on Saturday, had 14 points, eight assists and six rebounds for the Wizards.

Ben Wallace had 14 points and 14 rebounds and Tim Legler added 12 points for Washington, which shot 47 percent (37-of-79) and yielded 20 points off 14 turnovers.

"We played perfect until the fourth," Wallace said. "We let a few second rebounds get us. We weren't able to convert offensively tonight."

Vinny Del Negro collected 11 points for the Bucks, who shot 41 percent (32-of-78) and held a 47-41 advantage on the boards.

Milwaukee guard Del Curry sat out due to back spasms and Wizards forward Tracy Murray was sidelined with a strained right hip.

In a game that featured six ties and 13 lead changes, the Wizards opened a 79-74 advantage on Thorpe's layup with 9:24 to play

The Bucks responded with a furious half-court trap that forced four turnovers and fueled the game-winning rally.

"They ran a half-court trap that was pretty effective in the fourth," said Strickland. "We weren't able to adjust. If you don't hit the shots, you don't win the game. We hung tough tonight. But they pulled it out at the end."

Calbert Cheaney, who had 11 points, helped start the run with an errant pass that resulted in a pair of free throws by Del Negro that cut the lead to three. Allen stripped Wallace on Washington's ensuing trip and went in for an uncontested layup, pulling the Bucks within 79-78.

Mitch Richmond made an ill-advised pass that was intercepted by Del Negro, who fed Robinson for a thunderous dunk, giving the Bucks the lead for good with 7:05 to play.

Richmond had a woeful 10-point performance on 4-of-16 shooting.

Robinson hit a short jumper before Allen drained a 3-pointer from the left sideline to give Milwaukee an 85-79 cushion with 5:43 left. Robinson made a five-foot hook shot in the lane before capping the outburst with yet another jumper.

"We thought we had control tonight but we made turnovers and they took advantage of us at the end," Washington interim coach Jim Brovelli said.

Robinson finished 12-of-25 from the floor and 5-of-8 at the line.
