Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- Ray Allen and the Milwaukee Bucks wasted no time returning the message to Vince Carter and the Toronto Raptors.

U.S. Olympic Team member Allen answered Carter's challenge with 16 of his 33 points in the first quarter as the Bucks beat up the Raptors, 118-97, to split the heated home-and-home series.

On Friday in Toronto, Allen had his nose accidentally bloodied by Carter, who exploded for a league season-high 47 points in response to Allen getting the final spot on the squad headed for Sydney in September.

"I've never seen Ray that nervous or antsy or itchy before a game," Bucks coach George Karl said. "I was afraid he'd be too wired and get in foul trouble and do something stupid. But he didn't and he played great."

"Everything that took place yesterday led to a lot of frustration," Allen said. "Bad blood develops and we knew we had to gain some respect by any means necessary."

Allen also took a welt over his eye after bumping heads with Toronto's Doug Christie, one of the best defensive guards in the NBA. Tonight, Allen lit up Christie, shooting 5-of-6 from the field in the first quarter as Milwaukee raced to a 42-18 lead. Carter made just 1-of-8 shots in the period.

"This was revenge as a team, no personal vendetta against Vince," said Allen, who made 11-of-15 shots. "I don't have anything to prove. I know what I can do, my team knows what I can do and the fans know what I can do."

"I guess they felt they had something to prove," said Carter, who scored 24 points on 11-of-25 shooting. "I'm happy for him and I even told him that. This should all be behind us now."

From there, the teams appeared more interested in fighting than playing. With 4:59 left in the second quarter, forwards J.R. Reid of Milwaukee and Antonio Davis of Toronto were ejected for fighting.

Just 12 seconds later, Raptors forward Charles Oakley was called for a flagrant foul against Milwaukee's Glenn Robinson and was ejected for arguing the call. Oakley did not go peacefully, shoving coach Butch Carter and teammate Kevin Willis.

"There is a professional protocol to protect your teammates and that's important," Karl said. "But more important for us was the win, the final score shows how we responded to what happened. Now we've got to move on."

"Oakley was going to support Davis no matter what," Butch Carter said. "I think it's a bad deal because it ends up turning into a playoff-type situation and emotions run high."

Late in the first quarter, Willis accidentally knocked teammate Tracy McGrady woozy, hitting him in the head while following in his missed layup. McGrady was hospitalized with a slight concussion and took stitches to close a cut.

"I just think what happened was incorrect for all parties," said Butch Carter. "They complain about hard fouls from last night and we end up with a player getting stitches. It was underhanded; it planted a seed."

Sam Cassell had 24 points and nine assists for the Bucks, who shot 56 percent (37-of-66) and reclaimed third place in the Central Division from the Raptors.

Christie scored a season-high 31 points for the Raptors, who shot just 33 percent (33-of-99) and fell to 0-9 all-time in Milwaukee.

Allen began with three straight jumpers and a 3-pointer by Cassell gave the Bucks a 9-2 lead just 2:18 into the contest. Tim Thomas and Allen made 3-pointers in a 9-0 burst that built the lead to 31-12 with 3:11 left in the first quarter.

Allen added five free throws in the final 76 seconds to push the advantage to 42-18. In the quarter, Milwaukee shot 73 percent (11-of-15) and made 17-of-21 free throws and Toronto shot 17 percent (5-of-29) and made 7-of-8 from the stripe.

"Tonight I think we got some fouls called our way because we were aggressive at the basket," Allen said.

The Raptors closed to 46-31 before chaos ensued. Davis and Reid became tangled in transition and Davis threw Reid to the floor. Oakley went after Robinson on the next possession. The Bucks received four free throws and rebuilt the lead to 19 points.

"The technicals and ejections hurts us," Vince Carter said. "In that stretch they had like six (actually four) free throws in a row. With Tracy down with the injury too, that was three guys that are a big chunk or our team."

Toronto never challenged therafter as Milwaukee led by as many as 26 points.

Thomas scored 20 points and Robinson added 17 for the Bucks, who made 36-of-44 free throws.
