Game Story

INDIANAPOLIS (Ticker) -- If the Charlotte Hornets were hoping to get their feet under them after suffering a humiliating loss at home, they came to the wrong town.

Reggie Miller scored 12 of his 20 points in the first quarter as the Indiana Pacers quickly established their dominance at home, sprinting to an early 15-point lead and rolling to a 113-99 triumph over the Hornets.

Charlotte, which was blown out at home on Friday night by the New York Knicks, could not find a way to take advantage of the shorthanded Pacers, who were without forwards Dale Davis and Derrick McKey.

"They just kept hitting shots and keeping us from closing after halftime," Charlotte guard Eddie Jones said. "They are not a selfish team. When one player goes down, there seems to be somebody to step iut up for them."

The Pacers took control with an 18-2 charge late in the first quarter and never looked back as they improved their record at Conseco Fieldhouse to 30-3, the best home mark in the NBA. Indiana won for the 20th time in 26 games overall.

"We are really spoiled here," Pacers center Rik Smits said. "We have a great arena, a lot of luxuries and a very good crowd here. That might be the reason why we play well here and not on the road, I don't know."

Indiana trailed 16-15 before Smits flipped in a hook from six feet, Miller hit a pair of free throws, Jalen Rose converted a three-point play and Miller nailed a 16-footer that pushed the lead to 24-16 with 4:24 left in the quarter.

Charlotte's Derrick Coleman had a layup but Indiana reeled off nine straight points on a dunk by Croshere, a 3-pointer by Miller and a six-foot jumper and layup by Jackson that made it 33-18 with 2:11 left.

The Hornets never got the deficit under double figures the rest of the way. The Pacers took their biggest lead of the first half at 64-41 on a basket by Sam Perkins with 1:18 left.

Rose scored 22 points, Travis Best added 18 and Smits 16 and a season-high 12 rebounds for Indiana, which got 35 points from its bench.

Coleman led Charlotte with 28 points. Elden Campbell scored 21 and Eddie Jones had 14 but the Hornets dropped 1 1/2 games behind fifth-place Philadelphia in the Eastern Conference.

"We just didn't have the energy tonight tonight and their bench gave them a big spark," Charlotte guard David Wesley said. "We just don't have the energy to compete against the elite teams like we should and we need to pick it up against teams like this."

The Pacers, bench outscored Charlotte's, 35-18. Indiana had six players reached double figures, two off the bench.

Indiana's Sam Perkins came off the bench to score 10 points and has 15,008 in his 16-year NBA career.
