Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- If the Milwaukee Bucks keep playing offense like this, the NBA's new defensive rules next season won't even affect them.

Ray Allen scored 19 of his 31 points in the first half as the Bucks used a dominant opening quarter to roll to a 112-86 victory over the Toronto Raptors.

Milwaukee clinched home-court advantage over Miami, should the teams meet in a possible playoff series.

"In the playoffs, every team comes out ready to play," Allen said. "Every team has hours and hours worth of scouting (so) our first option won't always be there. We need to look to make the extra passes and be aware of our second and third options."

The Bucks scored the first six points and took a 16-6 lead on a 3-pointer by Allen with 7:43 to go in the first quarter. Scott Williams scored four points to cap an 11-0 run for a 27-10 lead with four minutes to go.

Milwaukee led, 37-20, at the end of one quarter.

Back-to-back 3-pointers by Lindsey Hunter gave Milwaukee a 57-32 advantage with 4:47 left before halftime. The Bucks led, 67-44, at intermission and by as many as 26 points on numerous occasions, including the final margin.

"I tip my hat off to my team right now," Milwaukee coach George Karl said. "Tonight we came out tough. Ray Allen played extremely well in the first half."

Allen made 12-of-15 shots and Hunter converted 7-of-11 for 22 points off the bench. The Bucks shot a robust 62 percent (28-of-45) in the first half, including 7-of-9 from Allen.

Milwaukee made 9-of-16 3-pointers, including 6-of-7 by Hunter. The reserve guard added five assists in only 22 minutes.

"I got some good looks and was fortunate to knock them down," Hunter said. "The shot is feeling better. I'm getting stronger and feeling healthier."

Sam Cassell added 18 points and nine assists while Glenn Robinson finished with 17 points. The Bucks outrebounded Toronto, 49-31, led by 10 boards from Ervin Johnson.

"Our big men have been playing great basketball," Allen said. "Everyone around the league says this team doesn't have a center. Well, Ervin Johnson is playing great basketball right now. This is the best this team has played all year."

Keon Clark scored 18 points while Vince Carter added 14 on just 6-of-20 shooting. Alvin Williams chipped in with 12 points and 11 assists.

"They came at us early with a lot of intensity and laid it on the line," Carter said. "We weren't ready to play. We didn't perform on both ends -- and they didn't miss. All the way through the fourth quarter, they didn't miss."

Toronto almost surely will open the playoffs on the road. The Raptors fell 2 1/2 games behind New York in the race for fourth place in the Eastern Conference.

"We never really got up to their level of play," Toronto coach Lenny Wilkens said. "Defensively, they collapsed on us and we were really slow moving the ball. But they really set the tempo, that's what happened."

The Raptors, who shot 39 percent (34-of-88), were denied their franchise-record 46th victory. They must wait until Tuesday when they host Detroit to try and set the new mark.

Earlier in the day, Milwaukee placed forward Tim Thomas on the injured list with a partially dislocated right shoulder. Thomas suffered the injury in a victory over Chicago on Tuesday and will look to return for the beginning of the playoffs.

"I think Tim Thomas should win the Sixth Man Award hand down," Karl said. "We still need to play the final two games to win but we do have some bodies that need some rest and we may take advantage of that."
