Bullets Rally Late To Slip By Bucks

23 November 1996. Washington Bullets 95, Milwaukee Bucks 90 (record: 6-6)
Game leaders: Howard (23 points), Webber (15 rebounds), Strickland (8 assists)

"T"his was not a game the Bullets should have won. Milwaukee has been playing well recently and this was on their homecourt. The Bucks even had a 10 point lead at the end of the 3rd quarter. That should have been more than enough to stop the Bullets.

But it wasn't. The Bullets held the Bucks scoreless for the first 6-1/2 minutes of the 4th quarter and took a brief lead at that point. The Bucks briefly recovered the lead, but the Bullets smelled the blood and finished off the Bucks in a cold fashion, outscoring the Bucks 29-14 in that final quarter.

The Bullets did not keep the Bucks front court of Vin Baker, Glenn Robinson, and Armon Gilliam in check (65 points and 35 rebounds, combined), but the Bucks bench only supplied 8 points, and that seemed to be the difference in the game.

This is a very important win for the Bullets this early in the season. It's a confidence booster, in that they proved once again that they can come back and win a tough game. Especially after their last gasp against the Sonics on Wednesday night.
