Game Story

WASHINGTON (Ticker) -- Jalen Rose scored 11 of his season-high 22 points in the fourth quarter as the Indiana Pacers closed with a 17-6 tear en route to a 106-95 victory over the Washington Wizards.

Travis Best contributed 12 points off the bench for the Pacers, who have won seven of their last eight games. Indiana's reserves totaled 49 points as Antonio Davis netted 10 and 13 rebounds.

"Anyway I can help us win, I want to do. Tonight, I was able to convert," said Rose. "We pressured them to take the bad shot (in the fourth quarter)."

Reggie Miller and Best had 3-pointers around a free throw by Rose, snapping an 89-89 tie and triggering the game-breaking spurt.

Miller finished with 20 points and Mark Jackson had a season-high 17 assists for Indiana, which has won the last six meetings with the Wizards. The Pacers also improved to 6-3 on the road and 4-0 when scoring more than 100 points.

"Any road win is big," said Pacers coach Larry Bird. "Down the stretch, the bench really came through tonight. I'm not surprised at all that this game was close. We like to keep things exciting."

Juwan Howard scored 26 points but was held to two in the fourth quarter. Rod Strickland added 18 points and 12 assists before being ejected in the final minute as the Wizards lost for the fifth time in their last six games.

"It seems like one of those things that the Pacers were at the top and we were expected to lose," said Strickland. "How can you play when things are like that? This is very frustrating and I just want to forget about tonight."

Washington has dropped five straight at the MCI Center, its longest home losing streak since opening the building on December 2, 1997.

"I'm angry because my guys didn't get what they had coming," said Wizards coach Bernie Bickerstaff, who returned after missing two games with the flu. "They fought hard against a (darn) good basketball team. Once again, they deserve better. I'm very, very frustrated."

The Wizards snapped a 72-72 tie with a 9-2 burst, opening an 81-74 lead with 1:28 to play in the third quarter on a 14-footer by Howard. But after Best and Calbert Cheaney traded two free throws apiece, Best drilled a 3-pointer as time expired, pulling Indiana within 83-79.

Rose had a pair of jumpers early in the fourth quarter and made two free throws to push the Pacers ahead, 89-87, with 6:11 to play. Terry Davis pulled Washington even for the last time at 89-89 with 5:57 to go, but Miller answered with a 3-pointer from just off the top of the key. After Rose made 1-of-2 from the line, Best drained a 3-pointer from the left wing to extend the lead to 96-89.

"I like to play the energy off the bench," said Best. "I like to use my speed as an offensive weapon. I haven't been scoring well as of late, it was surprising to see them go in."

A long jumper by Tracy Murray made it 97-93 with 2:06 to go, but Antonio Davis hit a pair from the line and Rose had a steal off a bad inbounds pass and converted the uncontested lay-in to give Indiana a 101-93 lead with 1:12 left.

Howard scored 10 of Washington's first 12 points, but Smits and Dale Davis combined for 17 of Indiana's first 19 as the Pacers opened a 26-18 lead. Chris Mullin's 3-pointer opened the eight-opint cushion after the Pacers grabbed six offensive rebounds on one possession. But the Wizards scored the final six points of the quarter.

"This is a game where it definitely hurts to lose," said Howard. "Our defense collapsed at the end, and we are trying to point fingers. We should be pointing them at ourselves."

Murray set a franchise record with his 277th 3-pointer midway through the second quarter, and Rose had 11 points in the period as Indiana built a 60-56 halftime lead.

The Pacers shot 53 percent (40-of-73) from the field and were 21-of-26 from the foul line, including 11-of-15 in the fourth quarter.

Washington shot 46 percent (40-of-87) and committed only 11 turnovers, but five came in the final seven minutes.
