Game Story

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- For the Milwaukee Bucks, a win in Philadelphia came six months too late.

Glenn Robinson matched a season-high with 34 points and Sam Cassell added 29 as the Bucks defeated the slumping 76ers, 96-80, in the first meeting between the teams since last season's Eastern Conference finals.

"It was a big win for us," Robinson said. "This is the team that sent us home for the summer. We felt we owed them something."

Philadelphia beat Milwaukee in a classic seven-game series before losing to the Los Angeles Lakers in five games in the NBA Finals, but the Sixers have been plagued by injuries all season and have looked like anything but champions of late.

"Right now, defensively (the 76ers) are not as talented as they were last year with Tyrone Hill and (George) Lynch," Milwaukee coach George Karl said. "They had a way of beating us with their defense. They would come in and just shut and lock us up. Tonight they tried to get in that mode, but we got some extra possessions."

Philadelphia suffered its seventh straight loss, matching its longest slide since January 24-February 4, 1998. The Sixers have dropped nine of their last 10 to fall six games under .500 (8-14).

"We just are not getting it done," Sixers guard Allen Iverson said. "They had two guys playing well against us and we could not contain them. It's frustrating because we have not lost like this in a long time. When you lose seven in a row, obviously it would be frustrating."

Milwaukee's Ray Allen, who scored just seven points, left with 5:22 remaining in the third quarter with tendinitis in his left knee and did not return. But the Bucks were able to extend the lead in the fourth quarter without the other member of their "Big Three."

Milwaukee also has been struggling and won for just the third time in its last nine contests after a 9-1 start.

"As a team we are trying to find our niche," Cassell said. "Slowly, but surely we are finding it. We are not near where we want to be, but we are not far from it. We are starting to do the things that we need to do."

Cassell's 3-pointer capped a 9-0 run that gave Milwaukee an 82-67 lead with 7:13 remaining. The Bucks led by as many as 18 in the final minute.

"We had to shift gears in the middle of the game (with Allen)," Karl said. "We had a good defensive team on the court most of the night. Sam and Glenn were giving us big numbers. We rode them offensively. We never let Iverson get in a momentum swing. He made shots, but he never really got cooking. In general, our hustle and defense are as important as shots going in."

Philadelphia was held to 37 points in the second half and heard boos from the fans at the First Union Center.

Iverson was not much of a factor for the Sixers, scoring just five of his 17 points in the second half and making only seven of his 22 shots. Iverson poured in 44 in Philadelphia's 108-91 Game Seven victory over the Bucks last spring.

"I don't think anyone in the locker room is pleased," Sixers coach Larry Brown said. "I hate to come in and bad-mouth us or take anything away from our game, but we are getting out-hustled, out-played and that's the end. It's my fault. We've lost seven straight, and we've got to have that sense of urgency there and that is the coach's job."

Derrick Coleman and Aaron McKie scored 16 points apiece for the Sixers, who shot only 39 percent (33-of-85) from the field and committed 20 turnovers.

Eric Snow, a member of the Sixers' walking wounded, made his first appearance of the season and scored 14 points.

Philadelphia trailed, 44-43, at the intermission, but Cassell took over in the third quarter with 16 points. During one point, he scored 14 straight points for the Bucks, helping the Bucks open a 68-62 lead at the end of the period.

"There are only two ways that we can go from here," McKie said. "We can either go up or we can go down. It's not the coach's decision on which way we are going to go."

Tim Thomas scored seven of his 16 points early in the fourth quarter to help the Bucks pull away. His 3-pointer gave Milwaukee a 76-67 lead with 9:14 remaining and the Bucks maintained a double-figure advantage thereafter.

Darvin Ham pulled down 13 rebounds off the bench for Milwaukee, which overcame 61 percent foul shooting (14-of-23). But the Sixer also shot 61 percent from the line (11-of-18).
