Game Story

ATLANTA (Ticker) -- Luck was not on the side of the Milwaukee Bucks.

DerMarr Johnson scored a career-high 28 points and Jason Terry added 19 as the Atlanta Hawks held on for a 100-92 victory over the Bucks, who had a late rally halted due to a power outage in the fourth quarter.

The defending Central Division champions, the Bucks have battled injuries all season and are fighting just to make the postseason.

The Bucks are in seventh place in the Eastern Conference, just two games ahead of the Indiana Pacers, and nothing seems to be going their way.

Milwaukee trailed by as many as 15 late in the third quarter but rallied to pull within 82-78 before a power surge knocked out the electricity at Philips Arena with 7:28 remaining.

The delay lasted 29 minutes and cooled off the Bucks' rally.

"Both teams had to go through it," Atlanta coach Lon Kruger said. "I thought the guys came out of that and really were aggressive and widened it out. It was a change of momentum at a good time."

When play resumed, Johnson made 1-of-2 free throws and Milwaukee's Glenn Robinson missed two shots, including a wide-open layup, before Terry and Nazr Mohammed made consecutive baskets for an 87-78 lead with six minutes left.

"When the lights went off, we missed three really good shots,"

coach George Karl said. "Glen had a seven-footer and a wide-open three, we missed all three of them, and that kind of broke our hearts. If we would have made those shots, and got the lead down to two or three, that makes it a close game situation. But when they took the lead back to nine or 10, we were playing catch-up without a lot of legs and not a lot of juice."

"We can’t make any excuses," Robinson said. "But we did sit down for a long period of time. We felt like we shouldn’t have been in that situation anyway, we should have been ahead and in control of the game, but it wasn’t working that way."

The Hawks made 4-of-4 free throws in the final 3 1/2 minutes to secure their seventh win in their last nine home games.

Reserve Hanno Mottola scored 17 points for Atlanta, which made 12-of-22 3-pointers and 17-of-20 free throws.

Shareef Abdur-Rahim had 10 points, nine rebounds and eight assists and Mohammed collected nine points and 10 rebounds.

Robinson and Sam Cassell scored 20 points apiece for the Bucks, who have lost three straight and four of their last five games.

Tim Thomas added 14 points off the bench, Greg Anthony had 11 and Anthony Mason chipped in 10 and nine rebounds for Milwaukee, which committed 14 turnovers leading to 17 turnovers for Atlanta.

Ray Allen missed his fifth straight game with a knee injury and also was suffering from a stomach virus.

Robinson scored eight points and Mason added six as Milwaukee jumped out to its largest lead, 25-9 less than 11 minutes into the game. But Atlanta responded with a similar 35-17 spurt to take a 44-42 lead on Abdur-Rahim's layup with 90 seconds left in the first half.

"(The first quarter) was like the worst we’ve played," Johnson said. "That was terrible. Coach got on us. They didn’t step on us when we were down, they kept us in it, and we came out in the second half and made a little run."

The Hawks had a 56-53 lead with 7:29 left in the third before going on a 19-7 run. Johnson, Terry and Ira Newble each scored four points during the stretch, which gave Atlanta a 75-60 cushion with 57 seconds left in the third quarter.

Robinson and Anthony closed the fourth quarter with consecutive baskets to spark a 17-8 run bridging the final two quarters.

Thomas' tip shot with 7:53 remaining made it 82-78 before the power went out and the Bucks' comebacks hopes disappeared.
