Game Story

INDIANAPOLIS (Ticker) -- Bonzi Wells spoiled his own homecoming and the Indiana Pacers remained unbeatable at home.

Wells missed a potential go-ahead free throw late in regulation and Mark Jackson and Rik Smits took advantage by dominating overtime to give the Pacers their 25th straight home victory, 127-119 over the slumping Portland Trail Blazers.

"I missed a big free throw that basically cost us the game, could've stopped us from going to overtime, but that's how it is," said Wells, a 69 percent foul shooter. "I have to go and work on my game and keep trying to be better on my free-throw shots."

Wells, a second-year shooting guard who attended Ball State and was playing in front of college coach Ray McCallum, scored a career-high 29 points and had a chance to deal the Pacers their first loss at Conseco Fieldhouse since Thanksgiving.

"He had better seats than my parents," Wells said. "You know it was good to see my coach. I haven't seen him in a while. He's on cloud nine right now. He's got an opportunity to go to the NCAA and I just feel great for him."

After Travis Best's jumper gave Indiana a 106-105 lead with 15 seconds left, Wells drew a foul from Derrick McKey and went to the line. He made the first but missed the second and the 7-4 Smits had his lane jumper blocked, forcing overtime.

"I got hit on the off arm," Smits said. "There was two guys all over me. I know they did get the ball. I was thinking it would be a foul."

Jackson opened the extra session with a 3-pointer, triggering a 15-4 run. After former Pacer Detlef Schrempf scored inside, Smits had a pair of inside hoops, then answered a basket by Rasheed Wallace with a corner jumper for a 115-110 lead with 2:39 remaining.

Jackson, who scored 10 of his season-high 23 points in overtime, sank 3-pointers on consecutive possessions to give Indiana a commanding 121-110 advantage with 1:24 to go.

"I hit some of the same shots that I have been missing," said Jackson. "Nothing different, other than I made them. My teammates helped a lot."

Smits scored 22 points and Chris Mullin added a season-high 17 for the Pacers, whose home streak includes 12 in a row against the powerful Western Conference. Indiana (42-19) has won 16 of 20 overall and owns the best record in the East.

"I don't know about a statement game," Smits said. "It's kind of a measuring stick, if anything. They are on a long road trip and we've been on the other side of that on the West Coast."

A 15-year veteran nearing the end of a stellar career, Mullin made his first start of the season for forward Jalen Rose, who was sidelined with the stomach flu. Mullin departed late in the third quarter with a pulled calf muscle and did not return.

"Jalen was sick at the shootaround this morning so I knew that he may not play and it might be an opportunity for me," Mullin said. "I know I'm on the downswing of my career and I have to be ready at all times."

Wallace had 24 points and 11 rebounds and Arvydas Sabonis added 21 and 11 for Portland (46-15), which has lost a season-high three straight games. The Trail Blazers were swept by Indiana in the season series for the first time since the 1988-89 campaign.

Wells was phenomenal. He made 11-of-18 shots overall and scored 12 points in the fourth quarter, giving Portland its only two leads. His jumper with 7:08 remaining gave the Blazers a 94-92 edge and his inside basket with 53 seconds to go made it 104-103 before Best answered with his jumper.

"Coach gave me a big opportunity today," Wells said. "He knew I was coming home, so I guess he gave me extended minutes today and I just wanted to take advantage of it. Tonight was my night and guys kept feeding off me and it was big that I had a good game like this. But I would've taken the win instead."

Two free throws by Reggie Miller, who scored 17 points, and a jumper by Dale Davis as the shot clock expired gave the Pacers a 103-97 lead with 2:43 left in the fourth quarter. But Wells drilled a 3-pointer and Sabonis had a three-point play to tie it 76 seconds later.

Austin Croshere had 13 points and nine rebounds and Davis added 12 and 13 for the Pacers, who shot 48 percent (41-of-86) and held a 48-41 rebounding edge but blew an 18-point lead.

Scottie Pippen scored all 12 of his points after halftime and and Schrempf added 10 for the Blazers, who shot 48 percent (41-of-85) but were whistled for 37 fouls.

"We played pretty well in the last three quarters and the overtime," Portland coach Mike Dunleavy said. "I just don't like how we started out the game."

Two free throws by Best capped a 13-2 surge that gave Indiana a 55-37 lead with 5:18 left in the second quarter. Schrempf scored six points and Wallace five in a 17-6 burst that closed the period and pulled Portland within 60-54.

Scoreless with three fouls in the first half, Pippen scored 10 points in the third quarter. Sabonis' 3-pointer and Wells' three-point play helped the Blazers cut the deficit to 89-86 after three periods.
