Allen leads Bucks to needed win

MILWAUKEE (AP) Ray Allen helped keep the struggling Milwaukee Bucks in the hunt for the playoffs.

Losers of 13 of 17 games coming into Thursday night's game, Allen paced the Bucks to a 106-96 victory over the Houston Rockets with 28 points, seven assists and three steals.

A loss would have dropped the Bucks a full game behind Orlando for the final spot in the Eastern Conference playoffs. But thanks to Allen, who had some big help from Sam Cassell and Glenn Robinson, the Bucks might have salvaged their fading hopes.
