Game Story

CLEVELAND (Ticker) -- This time, the Milwaukee Bucks did not need 3-pointers to beat the Cleveland Cavaliers. Ray Allen scored 20 of his 27 points in the second half and Tim Thomas added 20 as the Bucks posted a 106-94 victory over the Cavaliers. The last time the Bucks visited Gund Arena, they made a club-record 16 3-pointers in a 140-133 double-overtime victory on December 9. They were coming off a 47 percent performance from the arc in Friday's loss to Utah and entered leading the league in 3-point shooting at 38 percent. In this one, Milwaukee shot just 23 percent (6-of-26) from beyond the arc but still came away with the win. Despite one his team's worst perimeter outings, Bucks coach George Karl was satisfied with Milwaukee's defense, which limited the Cavaliers to 39 percent (35-of-89) shooting and forced them to take 21 3-pointers. "We probably played as good a defensive game as we've played in while," he said. "I thought from the standpoint if we could rebound the ball, that we could get a running game going and I wanted to keep the tempo fast." Overall, the Bucks shot 46 percent (37-of-81) and dished out 26 assists. Allen scored 16 points in the third quarter as Milwaukee took an 81-75 lead into the final period. He made 9-of-19 shots, including 4-of-10 3-pointers. Allen shot 3-of-9 in the first half, but made 4-of-6 shots in the third quarter. "I haven't been shooting the ball particularly well," Allen said. "Every shot, I felt I had been kind of hanging onto the ball. It was just important for me to shoot the ball, just get the ball and shoot." Allen scored 13 points in a 3:50 span late in the period, building the Bucks' cushion to 81-71 with 57 seconds left. Allen missed six of his first seven 3-pointers but made three during his hot streak. His first one made it 71-65 with 3:40 remaining, the second made it 76-68 with 2:11 to go and his final 3-pointer gave Milwaukee its first double-digit lead. Allen's big third quarter helped the Bucks overcome sub-par nights from Michael Redd and Sam Cassell. Redd, who scored 60 points in the first two games vs. Cleveland, was held to eight points in 21 minutes. Cassell, who recorded his first career triple-double in the last meeting, was limited to eight in 30 minutes. "We finally got Redd under control and this time he didn't hurt us," Cleveland coach John Lucas said. "Ray Allen did though, and he hit some tough threes out of the corner. He comes off good screens and can make shots." Allen sat for the first 4:10 of the fourth period, and the Cavaliers hung around. They were within 98-92 following Zydrunas Ilgauskas' short jumper with 2:47 remaining. As the Cavaliers tried to rally, reserve forward Jason Caffey scored seven of Milwaukee's first 11 points in the period. The Cavs still had a chance to rally as Rookie Dajuan Wagner hit a pair of long 3-pointers and Ricky Davis added another before Ilgauskas' shot. But Cleveland missed its final four shots and Thomas made easy three baskets around a jumper by Cassell. Davis finished with 22 points and Ilgauskas and Wagner added 20 apiece as the Cavs sank a season-high 11 3-pointers and lost for the ninth time in 11 games.
