Game Story

CHARLOTTE, North Carolina (Ticker) -- Thanks to Eddie Robinson and an energetic effort, the Charlotte Hornets are still in the Central Division race.

Robinson scored 20 points off the bench and the Hornets manhandled the Milwaukee Bucks, 100-90, to close the gap atop the NBA's weakest division.

The second-place Hornets came into this contest five games in the loss column behind the Bucks, who virtually could have sealed the Central Division with a win.

But Charlotte survived a first-half shooting spree by Ray Allen and took control for good with the unlikely help of Robinson, a second-year guard who had been averaging just 6.1 points per game.

The 6-8 Robinson scored 10 points in just eight minutes in the first half. He added a couple of buckets in the third quarter and converted a pair of alley-oop passes from David Wesley early in the final period to give Charlotte an 80-71 lead.

"I'm just playing my role right now, shooting open shots, playing good defense, rebounding the ball and when the opportunity opens up in the offense, I try to take advantage," Robinson said.

"He's a good person, he has great character, he comes to practice, works hard and doesn't complain when he's on the bench and things don't go well for him," Hornets forward P.J. Brown added. "He's just growing. From game to game, he seems to get better."

Robinson seemed to energize the Hornets, who held a 59-36 edge in rebounds and forced the Bucks to continually launch from the perimeter. Eventually, Allen and his teammates cooled off as they finished 11-of-28 from the arc.

"The name of the game tonight was rebounding and Eddie Robinson," Bucks coach George Karl said. "They got a lot of extra possessions by getting all of those rebounds and Robinson killed us with his alley-oop dunks."

Wesley had 17 points and nine assists for the Hornets (36-27), who had six players in double figures as they moved within three games of first place. Charlotte has won nine of its last 10.

"If we have any chance of catching these guys, it's a must-win," Brown said. "It's the biggest win of the year."

"We have a lot of home games," added Robinson. "We were on the road a lot early in the season. Most of that is over with. Milwaukee still has to go out west."

Allen scored 24 of his 32 points in the first half for the Bucks (38-23), who had a three-game winning streak snapped and fell to 1-3 against the Hornets, surrendering the tiebreaker.

"As long as we win games, they can't catch us," Allen said.

"I still think it's too early to start looking at the Central Division, but I think if we can put up 50 wins, it'll be hard for them to catch us," Karl said. "We'll know a lot more after our West Coast trip."

Charlotte took the lead for good at 56-55 on a layup by Brown with 7:43 left in the third period. Robinson's jumper extended the margin to 66-61 with 3:24 to go and he closed the quarter with an alley-oop dunk from Baron Davis for a 74-68 lead.

On consecutive possessions, Robinson dropped in a lob pass and hammered home an alley-oop from Wesley, making it a nine-point game.

"Eddie Robinson came in and gave them a big boost," Bucks guard Sam Cassell said. "We gave Charlotte too many alley-oop dunks. That lit a fire under them and got the crowd into it."

The Bucks closed to five points on four occasions, the last time at 90-85 on a jumper by Allen with five minutes to go. But Wesley made a jumper and two free throws and Elden Campbell hit a hook for a 96-85 advantage with 3:41 left.

Jamal Mashburn had 15 points and 12 rebounds, Campbell had 15 and 10 and Brown 11 and 12 for the Hornets, who shot 43 percent (38-of-89) and made 23-of-27 free throws.

Robinson made 10-of-13 shots. In Thursday's win over Orlando, he filled in for Mashburn, who was out with a bruised sternum, and collected 12 points and eight rebounds. But he thought this was his best game of the season.

"I think so. The shots were falling for me," he said.

Glenn Robinson scored 21 points and Lindsey Hunter added 14 for the Bucks, who shot 40 percent (35-of-87) and made 9-of-11 from the line. Cassell made just 2-of-14 shots and scored seven points, more than 10 below his average.

"I struggled tonight," Cassell said. "I can't go 2-of-14 and expect this team to be successful. Six-of-14 would be OK, but not two."

Allen was unstoppable in the first half, making 10-of-14 shots, including 4-of-6 from 3-point range. But he didn't get much help and Eddie Robinson helped the Hornets stay within 47-46 at halftime.
