GAME RECAP

Derrick McKey's second three-pointer of the season snapped a tie with 36 seconds left and Mark Jackson torched his former club for 27 points in the second half, leading the Indiana Pacers to a 91-86 victory over the struggling New York Knicks.

McKey was scoreless with four fouls until breaking an 84-84 deadlock with an open three-pointer from the right wing that made him to 2-of-10 from behind the arc this season. Jackson, who finished with a season-high 28 points and 11 assists, sank four free throws around a dunk by New York's Larry Johnson to secure the win.

"McKey hit the big shot of the game, the three-pointer that we needed," said Indiana coach Larry Bird. "And I thought he played very well, especially on the defensive end. He showed me a lot tonight by being able to go out there and get up on somebody, especially a guy like (Allan) Houston. I thought McKey played excellent defense."

"I was just trying to concentrate on getting to the middle and making something happen, whether it be for myself or the other guys," Jackson said. "And fortunately, I was able to make some shots."

Rik Smits had 22 points and 11 rebounds and Reggie Miller scored 17 points on 7-of-19 shooting as the Pacers ended a five-game losing streak at Madison Square Garden with their seventh win in nine games.

Allan Houston scored 31 points, including a jumper with McKey in his face that forged an 84-84 tie with 53 seconds remaining. Johnson had 17 points and John Starks 16 but both missed three-pointers on the possession following McKey's shot.

"I think we played very well," said Starks, who along with Johnson, missed badly off the back rim with a chance to tie in the final 30 seconds. "McKey hit a tough shot. I think that was his first bucket of the night. It was a big-time shot. You really don't count on 28 points from, Mark, he came up big for them."

The Knicks, who occupy the sixth playoff berth in the Eastern Conference, have lost six of their last seven games and lead seventh-place Cleveland by only one game.

Chris Mullin scored six of his nine points in the first quarter for the Pacers, who hit 9-of-18 three-pointers while making half (34-of-68) of their shots from the field overall.

Reserve Terry Cummings scored 10 points and Johnson paced New York to a 38-34 rebounding edge wiith 13 boards. Houston, who pulled down seven rebounds, was 13-of-22 from the field.

With 46 seconds left in the first half, Johnson gave the Knicks a 37-35 lead that they took into the break.

Jackson, who had missed both his shot attempts in the first half, began to heat up, scoring 13 points as Indiana took a 64-61 advantage after three quarters.

A three-pointer by Travis Best 1:38 into the final quarter snapped a 66-66 tie, but after two free throws by Smits made it 74-68 Pacers, the Knicks reeled off the next seven points to go ahead on a jumper by Charlie Ward with 6:44 left.

Jackson then went on a tear, scoring his team's next 10 points to give Indiana an 84-82 edge on a leaner with 73 seconds remaining. Houston, who scored eight of his points in the final quarter, hit a contested pull-up jumper over McKey before the Pacers' reserve answered with his only points of the night.

"I think in the first half I had some good looks off post-up plays and I was backing them in," said Jackson. "But coach made the point that we were just 2-of-7 on those plays. I have to take it personally, because plays like that are not about me taking shots, it's about me creating them for other guys."

New York, which committed only seven turnovers but shot 42 percent (34-of-80), took a 26-25 lead three minutes into the second quarter after Cummings' lay-in capped an 8-0 run.
