Game Story

PHOENIX (Ticker) -- Jason Kidd continued his offensive assault against the Milwaukee Bucks, who were missing most of theirs.

Kidd had 30 points, 12 assists and six steals as the Phoenix Suns extended their winning streak to seven games with a 106-99 victory over Milwaukee, which played without guard Sam Cassell and forward Glenn Robinson.

"We probably could have overcome one of our guys out, but with two of them out, it's a thin line of success that's difficult to overcome with Jason Kidd having the night he had," saidMilwaukee coach George Karl, who was ejected with 1:20 to go after arguing with officials.

Kidd, who scored a career-high 43 points in Thursday's win at Houston, made 11-of-19 shots and has put up at least 30 points six times in his last nine games.

"I just want to be agressive offensivly," he said. "I'm trying to do what I try to do all year, which is make it tough on my opponents. No matter what the matchup and what the situation of the game is. I'm taking what the defense gives me."

"Jason is playing at a level that few guys get to," Phoenix coach Scott Skiles said. "It's something to see. He is playing great and making great decisions."

Although the Bucks were playing without two of their three leading scorers, the Suns did not take control until an 8-0 run gave them a 100-90 lead with 2:19 left.

Phoenix led, 92-90, with 4:16 to go when Rodney Rogers sparked the spurt with a short jumper and Shawn Marion followed with a 12-footer to open a six-point lead. Clifford Robinson drilled a long jumper before Kidd finished a fast break with a layup to cap the run and the Bucks never got within five thereafter.

Marion scored nine of his 17 points and made 4-of-4 from the field in the final period as Phoenix matched its longest winning streak of the season.

"Shawn's fourth-quarter numbers all year have been outstanding," Skiles said. "He shoots over 50 percent in the fourth quarter. There were a few possessions there where we couldn't get a good look and he got a couple baskets for us."

Robinson added 19 points on 9-of-13 shooting and Rogers collected 16 points, eight rebounds and six assists for the Suns, who pulled within 1 1/2 games of Portland and Dallas for fifth place in the Western Conference.

The Bucks shot 55 percent (40-of-73) and drained 10-of-17 shots from the arc, with Ray Allen and Tim Thomas shouldering most of the offensive load. Their shooting was not enough to overcome 20 turnovers.

"Without Glenn and Sam in the lineup, we were holding it down," Allen said. "We still had a good shot at winning the game, but ultimately (turnovers) killed us."

Allen had 34 points, six assists and five rebounds and Thomas scored 26 points on 10-of-11 shooting but was the only other player in double figures for Milwaukee, which remained five games behind first-place Philadelphia in the Eastern Conference.

In a game that featured 21 lead changes and 15 ties, the Bucks took their last lead, 84-82, when Allen, who made 3-of-5 3-pointers, drained a shot from the arc with 7:32 to go.

Phoenix responded with a 10-2 run which was highlighted by seven points from Marion and a 3-pointer from Mario Elie, who scored six in the game. Elie and Marion both made 3-pointers during the stretch.

"Mario hadn't made a shot all night and he makes a three and then Marion makes one out of the corner," Karl said. "That was difficult to overcome."

Allen sank a pair of free throws and Thomas hit a 19-footer to close within 92-90 at 4:16, but Rogers responed with an 8-foot jumper in the lane to lead Phoenix to the decisive run.
