Game Story

INDIANAPOLIS (Ticker) -- The Indiana Pacers appear to be for real, and nobody knows that more than one of their former coaches and one of the best players in the NBA. Jermaine O'Neal collected 24 points and 16 rebounds to lead five players in double figures as the Indiana posted a 107-97 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers, who have lost a season-high five straight games. At 18-5, the Pacers lead the Eastern Conference, but Sunday's win was just their sixth over a team with a winning record. If the Pacers were looking for respect, they got it from Philadelphia coach Larry Brown and former league MVP Allen Iverson. Brown elevated the Pacers from a .500 team to elite status in the NBA, compiling a 190-138 regular-season mark in Indiana from 1993-97 and twice leading them within a game of the NBA Finals. "Give them credit, they've got veteran leadership with Reggie (Miller)," Brown said. "(Jamaal) Tinsley has gotten a lot better. They wanted to make a statement today. It's like a heavyweight fight, but they were in a whole different league from us." When Brown left Indiana to rebuild to Sixers in 1997, his former team still maintained its elite status, coming within a game of the NBA Finals in 1998 and succumbing in six games two years later to the Los Angeles Lakers in the Finals. Since reaching the Finals, the Pacers have slowly made the transition from a veteran team to a young squad. They were seeded eighth in the Eastern Conference the previous two seasons and proved to be a tough playoff opponent for Philadelphia and New Jersey. Iverson, a three-time scoring champion, also had high praise for the Pacers. "I think they're a good team," he said. "I haven't had a chance to get a look at them enough, only them on highlights here and there. But they are a good team and they have a lot of guys that can come of the bench and hurt you. They play with a lot of energy." While Iverson and Brown gave the Pacers their due, forward Aaron McKie had harsh words for his team. "I think we just came out and played soft," he said. "When you look at it, anytime we lost, I think it's a matter of being soft. We don't do what we need to do and the beginning of the game, it almost seems like we take it for granted, like we have an on-off switch and it's on off for the first half, then we decide to switch it on in the second half. "But when you get down 15-20 points to a good team and then in the third quarter you make your run and you're still down 10 points or so, it's hard to come back." O'Neal, who has developed into an All-Star after spending his first four seasons on Portland's bench, had his way in the paint as the Pacers outscored the Sixers, 33-17, in the second quarter to take a 65-50 halftime lead. But he had plenty of help as all five starters reached double figures. Center Brad Miller scored 19 points, forward Ron Artest added 19 and the backcourt of Tinsley and Reggie Miller combined for 38. "It was a great team effort," Pacers coach Isiah Thomas said. "It's great to see guys move the basketball, share it. It's fun to watch, fun to coach them." Indiana built its lead to 20 following O'Neal's 3-point play with 10:47 in the third and withstood a Philadelphia run in the fourth. The Pacers took an 89-74 advantage into the final quarter before the Sixers used a 12-2 run to get back in the game. Keith Van Horn started the spurt with a hook shot with 7:32 minutes to play that cut the deficit to 94-80. Philadelphia got within six three times on a pair of baskets by Eric Snow and a 3-pointer by Iverson. Snow's layup got Philadelphia within 96-90 with 4:24 left, but it was unable to rally despite a late shooting slump by the Pacers, who missed four straight shots and a pair of free throws. The Sixers went scoreless for two minutes. McKie missed a layup and a jumper, Van Horn was errant on two jumpers and the Sixers committed a shot-clock violation. Snow ended Philadelphia's slump with a layup with 2:24 remaining, but Tinsley, who had nine assists, found Reggie Miller on the right side for a 3-pointer that gave the Pacers a 101-92 lead with 2:04 remaining. Iverson's 3-pointer from the right side made it 101-95 with 13 seconds later remaining, but Tinsley built the lead to eight with a running jumper and Van Horn missed a jumper. Tinsley sealed the win with another jumper with 58 seconds left that made it 105-95. Iverson led the Sixers with 32 points, but had just 11 in the second half. Van Horn scored 10 of his 21 points in the fourth quarter and Snow had 11 of his 15 in the second half but McKie was limited to four. The Sixers came out strong, taking a 33-32 lead after 12 minutes. There were 10 lead changes in the first 15 minutes before Artest scored seven straight points. Four of Indiana's starters made half their shots. The Pacers shot 52 percent (39-of-75) from the floor, collected 22 assists and forced 21 turnovers. "We had good ball movement," Reggie Miller said. "We spread the ball around and had good balanced scoring. We had them guessing about where the next bucket was coming from. Tonight we showed why we can be such a dangerous team when everybody contributes like this."
