GAME RECAP Michael Jordan hit a jumper, sank two free throws and came up with a huge steal in the final 76 seconds and the Chicago Bulls allowed three points over the last six minutes, sending a message to the Indiana Pacers with a 90-84 victory.

After trailing Indiana for much of the first half of the season, the two-time defending champion Bulls have won 15 of their last 17 games to take a 3 1/2-game lead over Indiana in the Central Division.

Jordan, who finished with 35 points despite sitting out five minutes of the fourth quarter, came off Dennis Rodman's screen and hit a fadeaway jumper with 76 seconds left, capping an 8-2 spurt and giving Chicago an 86-83 lead.

After Rik Smits made the second of two free throws to cut the deficit to 86-84, Jordan threw up a 20-foot air ball but redeemed himself by deflecting Reggie Miller's entry pass from the top of the key with 28 seconds left.

On the Bulls' next possession, Jordan drew a foul on a drive to the basket and sank both free throws, extending Chicago's lead to 88-84 with 11 seconds to play.

Indiana was held to a season-low 11 points in the fourth quarter and had a 3:43 scoring drought, enabling the Bulls to take the lead for good.

Jalen Rose's layup with 6:07 to go gave the Pacers an 81-78 lead, but Chicago scored six straight points to take control.
