Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- This time, Glenn Robinson waited until the last quarter to heat up.

Robinson scored 12 of his 31 points in the fourth quarter as the Milwaukee Bucks placed six players in double figures and moved over .500 for the first time this season with a 104-97 victory over the Toronto Raptors.

The 6-7 Robinson scored 18 of his 32 points in the third quarter in a 111-102 road victory over the Utah Jazz on Wednesday.

"We're just playing the way we know we're capable of playing," Robinson said. "I think our confidence is growing with each game. We need to keep fighting and keep improving. We've been moving the ball now and it's helping us win ballgames. We're letting the open man take the shots to win games. We need to stay focused and good things willl happen."

After a disapointing start, Milwaukee (12-11) has won nine of its last 11 games and is tied with Toronto for third place in the Midwest Division.

"I still think we can play better basketball," Milwaukee coach George Karl said. "I thought the energy was good tonight through three quarters but we fell off on thefourth quarter. I would prefer us to win games with stops instead of shots. Hopefully we'll continue to get better defensively and win some ballgames that way."

Ray Allen scored 14 points and limited Toronto All-Star Vince Carter to 15 on 6-of-17 shooting. Allen, who was selected over Carter for the last spot on the United States Olympic team, made 5-of-12 shots as the Bucks avenged a 111-102 loss in Toronto on November 18.

Shortly after the selection was made last season Carter exploded for 47 points in a 115-110 win over the Bucks on January 14. Allen, who had his nose accidentally bloodied by Carter in that game, responded with 33 the next night, when the Bucks returned home for a 118-97 victory.

Carter later was selected to the Olympic team as a replacement. Tonight he did not play in the fourth quarter after aggravating a strained quad.

Lindsey Hunter again led Milwaukee's substitutes with 13 points. Fellow reserve Ervin Johnson contributed 11 points and 11 boards.

"I think everyone is starting to buy into what coach has been saying," Hunter said. "We're beginning to rotate the ball on offense and we're starting to buy into the defensive scheme. Everyone is getting touches and when that happens it opens up our whole offense. We are a lot more dangerous when we work the ball. If we can continue to do those things we'll win a lot of games."

Antonio Davis had 25 points and 12 rebounds and Alvin Williams scored 13 points in 26 minutes off the bench for Toronto, which had won three of its last four games.

"I think you have to give them a lot of credit," Davis said. "They were very patient tonight, they let their offense run. They did all that they could to win the game. We needed to be more patient."

Charles Oakley, who criticized some of his former teammates before Thursday's win over the New York Knicks, had 12 points and 10 rebounds for his third straight double-double. Oakley gave the Raptors their final lead at 62-61 with a 16-footer with 4:59 left in the third quarter.

"I think we had mental fatigue tonight," Toronto coach Lenny Wilkens said. "We had back-to-back games last night and tonight. You don't know how tough that is until you go through it. But we have to play through that."

Robinson had 10 points in the first half as the Bucks built a 47-46 edge. His 14-footer put Milwaukee ahead for good 28 seconds after Oakley's basket.

Davis hit a jumper from the left corner to pull the Raptors within 65-64 with 3:16 left in the third quarter. Robinson responded with a 21-footer to trigger a 7-0 spurt that ended the period. Hunter hit a 3-pointer and Scott Williams followed a miss by Allen with a tip-in for a 72-64 lead.

Robinson connected on 3-of-5 shots in the fourth period. The Raptors got within five points six times but the Bucks answered each time. Robinson also went 6-of-6 from the line, with four in the last 16 seconds.
