Robinson shows up old team

Posted: Friday, December 06, 2002

ATLANTA -- A day after making peace with Ray Allen, Glenn Robinson stuck it to his old team.

Robinson scored 23 points in his first game against Milwaukee, and Jason Terry added 19 as the Atlanta Hawks beat the Bucks 98-80 Thursday night.

Robinson was traded to Atlanta in the offseason after eight seasons in Milwaukee, where he was part of the ''big three'' with Ray Allen and Sam Cassell. But after the Bucks reached the Eastern Conference finals two years ago, they fell to 41-41 and missed the playoffs.

Earlier in the season, Allen had been critical of his former teammate, calling Robinson a ''ball hog,'' and Robinson responded by saying Allen was a ''little punk.'' But the pair met Wednesday and hashed out any differences, even though they hardly spoke on the court.

''Glenn didn't have much to say,'' Allen said. ''In his mind, I attacked him. I explained it to him. I apologized to him. We have an understanding.''

Timberwolves 114, Warriors 98

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Kevin Garnett had 21 points, 15 rebounds and nine assists as Minnesota snapped Golden State's three-game winning streak. Kendall Gill scored 19 points, Anthony Peeler added 17 and Joe Smith had 15 points and 10 rebounds as Minnesota used a balanced attack to win in Oakland for the third straight time.

Antawn Jamison had 32 points and 10 rebounds to lead five starters in double figures for Golden State, but the Warriors weren't able to earn their first four-game winning streak since February 2000.
