Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- The Milwaukee Bucks, who have been the target of scathing criticism from coach George Karl, finally gave the home fans something to cheer about.

Ray Allen scored 26 points and Sam Cassell added 22 as the Bucks snapped an five-game losing streak and a seven-game slide at home with a 102-95 victory over the Orlando Magic.

During the tailspin, Karl referred to his players as "pretty boys" and said they were not professional enough to do anything about losing.

Today, the Bucks showed enough toughness down the stretch to record their first victory at the Bradley Center since defeating Sacramento, 112-104, on January 26.

"I'm happy it's over," Karl said. "We played good ball in the second half, especially defensively. I've told the guys for two weeks that the way to play when you're not playing well is to play hard. I thought there was an urgeancy tonight that hasn't been there."

Tim Thomas hit a 3-pointer with 8:35 remaining to put Milwaukee ahead for good, 79-76.

Orlando's Pat Garrity scored a career-high 32 points, including a follow in the lane that pulled the Magic within 81-80 with 6:05 to play. He was 12-of-17 from the field.

"I had a couple ridiculous shots go in, but mostly I just had some good open looks," Garrity said. "We moved the offense well."

But the Bucks put away the contest with a 9-0 spurt, opening a 90-80 advantage on two free throws by Allen with 2:43 to play.

Milwaukee moved 2 1/2 games ahead of Orlando in the battle for the final Eastern Conference playoff spot.

"It's just good to get a win because I was about to go crazy," Cassell said. "We got effort from everyone. The `Big Three' and the role players, we all did what we need to do to win."

The Magic suffered their fifth straight loss following a season-high five-game winning streak and completed an 0-4 road trip. Orlando also lost at Seattle, Portland and Utah.

"This has been a tough road trip," Orlando coach Doc Rivers said. "We hoped to get a win or two but instead we got none."

The Magic grabbed a 58-55 halftime lead by shooting 59 percent (23-of-59) from the field. But they cooled off in the second half at 44 percent (25-of-49).

Orlando made just 5-of-22 shots in the third quarter and scored only 13 points. Milwaukee had 19 in the period but it was enough to take a 74-71 lead into the final quarter.

"Our effort was there, it's always there" Orlando forward Bo Outlaw said. "I just get tired of losing and every night talking about effort."

After Garrity's layup pulled Orlando within a point, Allen drilled a 3-pointer to make it 84-80. Glenn Robinson's 14-footer and two foul shots apiece by Cassell and Allen gave the Bucks a 10-point cushion.

Orlando got within 98-93 on Michael Doleac's 3-pointer with 23 seconds to play before Thomas clinched the win three seconds later with a pair from the line.

"We played hard from start to finish," said center Scott Williams, who scored 12 points off the bench for the Bucks. "Even when we were behind early we played hard. This was a big win. You start to doubt yourself and you start to bicker, but a win like this can change all that."

Thomas scored 17 points and Robinson 14 for the Bucks, who also shot 44 percent (36-of-82). Ervin Johnson grabbed 12 rebounds, helping Milwaukee enjoy a 50-38 edge on the boards.

Ron Mercer and Darrell Armstrong had 13 points apiece for the Magic, who led by as many as nine in the first half. Garrity's 18-foot jumper gave Orlando a 47-38 cushion with 5:42 remaining in the second quarter.

Darvin Him started in place of injured forward J.R. Reid for the Bucks and scored five points. Reid was placed on the injured before the game with plantar fasciatis in his left foot.

"Darvin had five or six opportunities and made plays with his hustle," Karl said. "Darvin will probably stay in the lineup for awhile."
