Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- Michael Redd set a franchise mark with nine 3-pointers -- including an NBA-record eight in the fourth quarter -- as the Milwaukee Bucks crushed the Houston Rockets, 115-76, in a rare laugher.

Redd made his first seven 3-pointers and finished 9-of-13 from beyond the arc, breaking the previous team mark of eight shared by Ray Allen and Tim Thomas.

A second-year guard, Redd scored a career-high 29 points, making his ninth 3-pointer with 44 seconds remaining. Through three quarters, he was hardly a factor, scoring just three points, but the Ohio State product erupted for 26 over the final 12 minutes.

The eight 3-pointers in the second half tied an NBA mark set by Thomas last season and the 26 points in the fourth period was an NBA season high.

George Gervin holds the league record for points in a quarter, scoring 33 in the second period against New Orleans on April 9, 1978.

"It was crazy out there," Redd said. "Every shot I took seemed like it was going to go in. The crowd was getting into it, my teammates were getting into it, and I was getting into it."

Overall, the Bucks were 16-of-26 from beyond the arc, setting another team record for 3-pointers in a game.

Glenn Robinson added 21 points for Milwaukee, which avenged a 115-110 loss in Houston on December 22, when the Rockets tied a franchise record with 17 3-pointers and snapped a 15-game losing streak.

The Rockets were a different team in the rematch as they were held to just 1-of-13 from 3-point range.

"Defensively, we were against a team that has given us problems in the past," Milwaukee coach George Karl said. "Tonight, we jumped out on their outside shooters and funneled their penetration to our bigs."

Allen contributed 17 points, while the Bucks also received a boost from the return of Sam Cassell, who scored 16 after missing three of the previous four games with a sprained toe.

"When I'm in the lineup, I think this team plays in a comfort zone," Cassell added. "When I'm not in there, we seem to stand around on offense and not move the ball. Our shooters seem to play better basketball when I'm on the floor."

Karl has directed harsh criticism at his team during its recent stretch of poor play but had plenty to smile about Wednesday. However, he may not have endeared himself to Houston coach Rudy Tomjanovich.

Instead of running out the clock, the Bucks got the ball to Redd, who launched two 3-pointers on Milwaukee's final possession, missing both.

"You had a kid going there for a good thing," Tomjanovich said. "You just have to compete. He (Redd) was giving me trouble. He was getting on my nerves."

The Bucks posted their most lopsided win of the season, surpassing a 115-95 win over Indiana on December 15. They narrowly missed a season low for points allowed, which occurred in a 78-75 victory at Toronto on November 22.

"I looked over at the bench and saw a lot of guys hugging and high-fiving," Redd said. "I haven't seen that the last few weeks. This was a quality win for us."

Milwaukee put away with the contest with an 11-0 spurt late in the third quarter. The Bucks held the Rockets scoreless for more than 4 1/2 minutes, building a 77-63 lead on Robinson's layup with 1:58 left in the period.

Milwaukee, which shot 58.5 percent (48-of-82) from the field, continued to pour it on in the fourth quarter, outscoring the Rockets, 35-19. The Bucks led by as much as 112-69 on Mark Pope's layup with 1:17 left.

Kenny Thomas scored 21 points and Steve Francis added 13 for Houston, which had won three straight against Milwaukee. The Rockets shot just 36 percent (29-of-81) from the field.

"These guys (Bucks) are good," Tomjanovich said. "I'm sure he (Karl) got them ready because we have beat them three in a row."
