Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- The Milwaukee Bucks finally showed off the best of their new look to their hometown fans. Sam Cassell scored 28 points and Gary Payton added 24 and 10 assists as the Bucks snapped a three-game losing streak with a 120-93 rout of the Atlanta Hawks. The Bucks won for only the second time since acquiring Payton and Desmond Mason from the Seattle SuperSonics for Ray Allen, Kevin Ollie and Ron Murray on February 20, and for the first time at home with Payton in the lineup. Milwaukee improved to just 2-4 since the trade. One problem for Bucks coach George Karl has been wedding Payton's talents with the team while finding a way to fill the holes created when Allen took his long-range shooting skills to Seattle. Against the Hawks, Milwaukee shot 52 percent (12-of-23) from beyond the arc and 51.5 percent (50-of-97) overall. "I told our 3-point shooters yesterday that we really need to focus on shooting the ball," Karl said. "Ray gave us a good foundation, I think Ray is probably one of the great shooters in the NBA. When you lose a Ray Allen, suddenly (you) don't shoot the ball as well. We have a personality that we want to shoot the three, but if so, we have to shoot with a higher percentage." Payton is feeling more comfortable as well, on and off the court. "Coach Karl has made the transition to Milwaukee a lot easier for me and my family," he said. "Basketball-wise, it has been easy because coach's sets haven't changed too much from when he was back in Seattle. There is some familiarity there, so it hasn't been too difficult." Payton and Cassell scored 21 of their team's 32 points as the Bucks gained control in the third quarter. Dion Glover cut Milwaukee's lead to 69-60 with a jumper with 8:11 left before the guards scored 15 of the next 17 points for the Bucks. Payton drained a 3-pointer and Cassell made two free throws to push Milwaukee's advantage to 87-73 with 2:33 remaining. The Hawks closed to 87-77, but Michael Redd nailed a 3-pointer and hit a layup at the buzzer to give the Bucks a 92-77 lead heading into the fourth quarter. Atlanta never seriously threatened thereafter. "I think we made it easy for them. We didn't follow our game plan," Hawks forward Shareef Abdur-Rahim said. "Sam and Gary are really good guards, they are tough to play and tough to guard, but I still think we could have done a better job." Redd finished with 19 points and Tim Thomas contributed 18 and seven rebounds for the Bucks, extended their home winning streak over the Hawks to nine games. "We haven't been playing well lately and to come and get a win like this was big," Thomas said. "Now we need to try and get rolling a little bit. We have a lot of big games this week. This is going to be the most important road trip we've taken this season." Milwaukee won for just the second time in its last nine games but remained a half-game behind Orlando for the final playoff berth in the Eastern Conference. The Bucks play 11 of the next 16 games on the road. "We need to buckle down and gain some ground," Payton said. "The month of March is going to be a big month for us. We have time to put things together, but this road trip is going be very important for us. We are starting to figure each other out a little bit. It takes some times for you to jell with new teammates. We just need to build off a win like this." Glenn Robinson played in Milwaukee for the first time since he was traded to Atlanta last summer. After sitting out with a sore right elbow in his first trip to the Bradley Center on January 14, Robinson scored 24 points. "I treat it like a regular game, the reception and that stuff was the first time," he said. "I'm just trying to get down to business and get a win." "When you lose by 20-something, it is hard to look at positives, but he gave an effort," Hawks coach Terry Stotts said. "In the first half he shot well, I was happy for the reception he got. It was a tough game for everybody." Abdur-Rahim added 22 points and 12 rebounds and Jason Terry had 19 and seven for Atlanta, which went 2-5 on its season-high seven-game road trip. "Milwaukee is a very talented team, people were talking about them losing three in a row and I thought they played three games against three very good teams, we just couldn't stop them tonight," Stotts said. The Hawks, who have not won here since February 10, 1998 and are just 6-26 on the road this season, shot 42.5 percent (31-of-73) - hitting on 50 percent (7-of-14) their 3-point attempts - but surrendered 18 points on 15 turnovers. "We shot the ball well in the first half, but we ended on a down not," Stotts said. "I didn't come in trying to outscore them. We are a good offensive team, but we needed a better defensive effort."
