GAME RECAP

Dale Davis scored six of his 16 points during a key run to start the second half as the Indiana Pacers crushed the undermanned Milwaukee Bucks, 96-76.

Rik Smits had 20 points and 11 rebounds while Reggie Miller chipped in 15 points for the Pacers, who have won 12 of their last 14 home games.

"The guys played hard tonight," said Indiana coach Larry Bird. "If we can hold teams to around 80, 85 points, we've got a good chance to win."

A dunk by Miller 17 seconds into the second half gave the Pacers a 51-46 lead. Milwaukee's Michael Curry answered with a jumper, but Indiana scored the next seven points. Chris Mullin and Smits drained long jumpers and Miller nailed a three-pointer to make it 58-48 with 7:51 to play.

After baskets by Ray Allen and Elliot Perry cut the deficit to six, Davis made a layup and scored on a tip-in to restore the double-digit lead at 62-52 with 5:56 to go in the quarter.

"In the first half, I thought we came out flat and allowed them to do what they wanted to do," Davis said. "At halftime, coach made some adjustments and we played pretty good. In practice yesterday, we went back to basics and it showed tonight."

Perry finished with 25 points, Allen had 20 and Tyrone Hill 10 and 13 rebounds for Milwaukee, which has dropped four straight and seven of its last eight games. The Bucks played without injured starters Terrell Brandon and Glenn Robinson.

"We'll just try to find a comfort level with the players we have," Allen said. "Hopefully, that will make it easier for us. We just need to pay attention to other teams and to do what we need to accomplish. Now we have to overachieve and realize our margin of error is small."

A 21-footer by Smits with 4:14 remaining in the first quarter gave the Pacers their largest lead of the first half, 19-11. But Perry exploded for nine points during an 11-4 run to draw the Bucks within 23-22 with 62 seconds left in the period.

A three-pointer by Travis Best gave Indiana a 30-26 edge just over a minute into the second quarter, but neither team was able to build more than a three-point advantage and the Pacers lead at the break, 49-46.

Perry scored 21 points in the first half on 9-of-13 shooting.

"Elliott had a tremendous first half," Bucks coach Chris Ford said. "His offense kept us in the game. We just couldn't sustain it. Right now it's tough for us to score points. There's only so many places you can go."

The Bucks were outscored in the third quarter, 20-12, and did not pick it up in the fourth. Two free throws by Ricky Pierce with 11:45 remaining cut the deficit to 69-60, but it was the last time Milwaukee trailed by single digits. Indiana went on a 21-9 run and took their largest lead of the game, 90-70, with 2:07 to play.

Mark Jackson had 13 assists for the Pacers and needs just 20 to tie Maurice Cheeks for fifth place on the all-time list.
