Game Story

ATLANTA (Ticker) -- The Atlanta Hawks should have known Ray Allen would find his offense. They could not have expected the same from Jason Caffey.

Allen rebounded from a slow start to score 31 points and Caffey scored nine of his season-high 17 in the fourth quarter as the Milwaukee Bucks extended their season-high winning streak to seven games with a 116-107 victory over the Hawks.

Allen has carried the Bucks for most of the winning streak and came alive after an inefficient first half. But it was the defensive-minded Caffey that did the most damage.

"I think I just had the energy," Caffey said. "I didn't play in the game last night and I think I had the energy to propel us to victory."

After Atlanta's Jason Terry tied it, 92-92, on a pair of free throws with 7:13 remaining, Caffey made a pair of free throws and a dunk to spark a 7-0 run. Allen followed with two free throws and Caffey made 1-of-2 to give Milwaukee a 99-92 cushion with 5:36 left.

"Jason was very active on the glass and he was very active offensively, he was moving around," Allen said. "The defense got set in the positions they were in and we came out finding that one guy cutting to the basket and got some easy jump shots."

The Hawks closed within 101-97 on a layup by Nazr Mohammed 64 seconds later, but Sam Cassell made consecutive baskets to extend the lead.

Allen, who scored 12 points in the final 10:14, nailed a 3-pointer and added a dunk as Milwaukee pulled away for its fifth straight win over Atlanta.

"It was a disappointing finish to it," Hawks coach Lon Kruger said. "I thought our guys did a ton of good things. I thought our activity was much better, I thought our fight was much better. Down the stretch, we didn't do the things we needed to, but there was definitely some things we can build from."

Allen made just 1-of-5 3-pointers in the opening 24 minutes but sank 4-of-5 after halftime. He is shooting 68 percent (34-of-50) from beyond the arc over his last six games.

Cassell finished with 17 points and nine assists and Anthony Mason added 17 points and eight rebounds as the Bucks extended their longest winning streak since reeling off eight straight wins from January 9-23, 2001.

"We played together," Allen said. "I think everyone has learned their role on the team and what we expect from them. We've learned that we're going to win in different fashions and we've done it together."

Michael Redd scored 14 points off the bench for Milwaukee, which shot 52 percent (41-of-79) from the field and made 27-of-33 free throws.

Terry finished with 24 points and Mohammed collected 22 points and tied a career high with 19 rebounds, including 10 on the offensive end.

The Hawks have lost a season-high six straight games and fell to 0-4 on a five-game homestand.

Atlanta scored a season-high 40 points on 14-of-22 shooting in the first quarter. Mohammed scored 14 points and Terry added 13 in the period for the Hawks, who took a 40-25 lead into the second.

"They quietly got the 40 points," Allen said. "Nazr had a big first quarter. Being down 15, we never panicked. We just knew we had to put some clinic defensively in the next three quarters."

Atlanta had a 54-43 advantage with 3:59 left in the first half, but Milwaukee scored 12 of the next 14 points, highlighted by five apiece from Allen and Thomas.

There were three ties and five lead changes in the third before Milwaukee took over in the fourth, winning for the 11th time this season after trailing by double digits.

"We needed to do some things in the second half that we did in the first half," Terry said. "We played great then we lost the momentum. We let the momentum go their way when we had been kicking their butts all night long."
