Game Story

NEW YORK (Ticker) -- The young Milwaukee Bucks didn't allow their home loss to the Los Angeles Lakers to get them down. The Bucks bounced back for a 106-90 victory over the New York Knicks as Tim Thomas scored 22 points and Toni Kukoc added 21. "We played a better game down the stretch tonight," Bucks rookie point guard T.J. Ford said. "This was a totally different team tonight after last night's tough loss, in which everybody stepped up. We have guys who can score and tonight Toni Kukoc and Tim Thomas came up big in the second half." Michael Redd, who had a career-high 36 points in Tuesday's disheartening 113-107 loss to the Lakers, added 17. Ford seemed undaunted by the New York crowd in his pro debut at Madison Square Garden, collecting a season-high 15 points. "He is our sparkplug and he reacted good tonight after a tough night last night," Bucks coach Terry Porter said. "He created some shots on his way to driving to the basket and found his open teammates in the third-quarter spurt that gave us a big win tonight." The Bucks held a 10-point second-half lead Tuesday but let it slip away as the experience and talent of the Lakers four future Hall of Famers proved to be too much to overcome. This time, Milwaukee was able to maintain its double-digit cushion despite some hot shooting by Knicks guard Allan Houston. Houston led the Knicks (1-3) with 35 points on 15-of-26 shooting. He scored 27 in the first half on 12-of-14 shooting as Milwaukee tried unsuccessfully to defend him with Redd, Desmond Mason and Kukoc. Kurt Thomas had 10 points and 19 rebounds and Keith Van Horn scored 19 points but it wasn't enough as New York remained winless (0-2) at home. "This game was frustrating to make it slip away the way we did." Kurt Thomas said. "They made shots and the mistakes they made in the first half we made in the second half." New York went on 13-4 run in the third quarter to take a 69-61 lead with 5:17 left. But the Bucks closed the quarter with a 16-4 run to take a 77-73 lead and led thereafter. Howard Eisley's 3-pointer pulled New York to within 79-78 with 10:30 left. But Milwaukee responded with a 14-6 run over the next four minutes to build a 93-84 lead. Mason capped the spurt with a slam and finished with nine points. New York had just three baskets the rest of the way. "We were shooting the ball well and then got in a bad habit of not playing solid defense," Houston said. Both teams shot well from the field. New York hit 44 percent (37-of-84) while Milwaukee shot 47 percent (37-of-79). Ford showed poise running the offense as Milwaukee committed just eight turnovers. New York's offense didn't run as smoothly with experienced veterans like Charlie Ward and Howard Eisley at point guard. Ward had 12 assists but committed four of the Knicks' 17 turnovers and Van Horn had seven. "So many disappointing things that happened tonight in which we let them come right back into the game," Houston added. "After playing a tough game last night they came in here and kicked our butts." New York went to a smaller lineup for most of the second half to match up with Milwaukee and took 7-2 Dikembe Mutombo out of the game. But it backfired as Ford successfully attacked the basket for easy layups and assists. The Bucks punished the Knicks in the paint, outscoring them, 48-30. "They had that small lineup and created some mismatches for us that created a lot of open holes in which they made their shots," Kurt Thomas said. The Knicks used a 15-2 run in the first quarter to build a 24-9 lead with 3:57 left. Houston and Van Horn accounted for 22 of the first 24 points. New York still led, 42-28, with 7:06 left in the second when Milwaukee went on a 16-8 run to end the half and cut the deficit to 50-44.
