Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- Sometimes, it's over before it's over.

The Milwaukee Bucks led virtually the whole way and used a fourth-quarter run to put away the game. However, their 110-105 victory over the Washington Wizards was meaningless.

In order for the Bucks to have climbed to seventh place in the Eastern Conference, they needed the Detroit Pistons to lose to the lowly Chicago Bulls. The Pistons pounded Chicago, 112-91, and Milwaukee will face top-seeded Indiana in the opening round for the second straight season.

Last year, the Bucks (42-40) were swept by the Pacers. They have lost seven straight playoff games since 1990. Milwaukee clinched the final playoff spot in the East with Monday's 85-83 victory in Orlando.

"They swept us last year, so we've got to give 200 percent," Bucks rookie guard Rafer Alston said. "We have to give it our all. They're a veteran team and they'll probably be making a real push for it now. We have to really step up and play great defense."

Vinny Del Negro scored six of his 16 points in an 11-2 surge in the fourth quarter that put Milwaukee ahead, 108-101.

Bucks All-Star guard Ray Allen started to test his injured knee, which felt fine, according to the team. He played six minutes, scoring five points on a dunk and a 3-pointer.

Allen injured his knee against Orlando and had an MRI on Tuesday that revealed just a sprain. He is Milwaukee's leading scorer at 22.3 points per game.

"There's still a little tenderness, but it will be OK," Allen said. "I wanted to play tonight because if I hadn't, there'd be some uncertainty leading into the playoffs. Most of it is natural. The doctor told me the knee is stable, so I just wanted to try to forget about it."

Allen tried to put a positive spin on facing the team with the best record in the East, rather than the battered Miami Heat.

"We fared well against Indiana, we beat them twice (in the regular season)," Allen said. "So we have a lot of confidence. There are a lot of teams that have won from the eighth spot. Just look at what New York did last year. They're serving as an inspiration to us."

Scott Williams led the Bucks with a season-high 19 points. Tim Thomas added 15 points and Sam Cassell had seven assists.

Mitch Richmond scored 27 points for the Wizards (29-53), who missed the playoffs for the third straight season. Chris Whitney added 22 points and rookie Richard Hamilton added 17, with both collecting seven assists.

Milwaukee coach George Karl gave plenty of time to his bench players, with five reserves playing at least 21 minutes apiece, and the sixth playing 17 minutes.

"The starters were complaining to me that I wasn't trying to win the game, but in the end I felt the guys on the court deserved the right to play and try to win, which they did," Karl said.
