Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- Michael Redd insists he would like to stay with the Milwaukee Bucks. If he is traded before Thursday's deadline, however, his teammates gave him a nice parting gift. Desmond Mason scored 15 points and Zaza Pachulia matched a career high with 14 to lead a balanced attack as the Bucks coasted to a 100-81 victory over the New Jersey Nets. Redd, who tied his season high with 39 points in a win over Charlotte on Tuesday, has been mentioned in trade rumors but has said he would like to finish his career in Milwaukee. He can become a free agent after this season and could command a maximum deal. "I'm not worried at all. When I say that, I mean that," Redd said. "I want to be here and I believe I'll be here, for the rest of this season and beyond." Redd said that he had brief discussions with team officials last week and both sides indicated that keeping him in Milwaukee was a top priority. "I'm just worried about winning basketball games," Redd said. "We knew the rumors were going to come. We all knew that coming into the season. But I don't have a worry at all." The Bucks' leading scorer, Redd had six points in the first quarter but just five thereafter. He was picked up by a strong third period by his teammates as they rolled to their season-high fifth straight home win. Mason scored six points and had two assists during a 26-6 burst to close the third quarter. His layup with 7:31 left gave the Bucks the lead for good, 58-56, and he converted back-to-back alley-oop slams to finish the period and put his team ahead, 77-62. "I got two good passes," Mason said. "The dunk is a great play in basketball. I know it's worth two points just like any other basket, but it's a big momentum-changer." On the second dunk, Mason outjumped Redd, who was right behind him in the air, thinking the pass was for him. "The first one was a great pass in transition," Mason said. "The second one, they said I stole it from Mike, but I didn't know he was behind me. If I did, I would have let him have it." "The man literally jumped over me," Redd said. Mike James, who assisted on both of Mason's dunks, said that's not a play the Bucks spend a lot of time on in practice. "You don't have to work on a play like that when you have an athlete like Desmond Mason," James said. "He can jump out of the gym. If he's got a step on his man, someone's going to get dunked on. A dunk like that gets the team and the crowd energized." The surge pushed Milwaukee to its seventh win 10 games. "Probably, over the last 15 games, we are (playing our best basketball)," Bucks coach Terry Porter said. "Before the break we were playing pretty solid. We're starting to play with more confidence and the chemistry is so much better." New Jersey coach Lawrence Frank pointed at the third quarter run as the game's turning point. "We didn't have quality possessions and that led to their run-out opportunities," Frank said. "We couldn't make consecutive stops and that led to a 30-point quarter (for the Bucks)." Behind Pachulia's seven points early in the fourth period, Milwaukee opened its largest lead at 87-68 with 6:20 left. Pachulia finished with 12 rebounds - one shy of his career high - to help the Bucks to a 45-35 advantage on the boards. It was Pachulia's first career double-double. "It was the (All-Star) break and laying in the sun," said Pachulia, who spent the break in Orlando, Florida. "That's why we won. Everybody has energy, and we shared the ball." Vince Carter scored 26 points for the Nets but shot just 6-of-19 after the first quarter when New Jersey opened up a 28-21 lead. Carter surged into the All-Star break as one of the league's hottest players but has struggled since. In two games since Sunday's All-Star Game, he is shooting 37 percent (19-of-52). "I just can't get my legs into my shot," Carter said. "I am working hard just to make sure that I am getting enough lift on my shot right now." Since Carter had season highs of 43 points and 14 rebounds in a win over Philadelphia on February 7, the Nets are 2-5 and have failed to scored more than 100 points six times. "We just have to figure out how to get things done right now," Carter said. "As a team, we are struggling on the offensive end and sometimes that carries over on the defensive end." New Jersey has lost five straight visits to Milwaukee.
