Game Story

CHICAGO (Ticker) -- Jamal Crawford scored 31 of his career-high 33 points in the second half as the Chicago Bulls rallied for a 115-103 triumph over the Indiana Pacers. Crawford's continued improvement helped the Bulls record their second straight home victory over a team vying for playoff positioning in the Eastern Conference and left the Pacers 1 1/2 games behind first-place Detroit in the Central Division. Crawford came in averaging 17.4 points over his previous 11 contests and reached double figures for the 10th time in 12 games. Chicago won for just the third time in the last 20 meetings with the Pacers and avenged a 140-89 loss at Indiana on March 28. Crawford took over in the fourth quarter, scoring 10 straight Chicago points and 14 of its final 16. The Bulls trailed, 98-93, with just under seven minutes remaining, but Crawford helped them close with a 22-5 spurt as they improved to 25-14 at home. After missing his first five shots, Crawford made 10 of his final 15. Among his best was a runner in the lane around Pacers point guard Jamaal Tinsley that gave the Bulls a 108-101 advantage with two minutes remaining. "I wanted to be more aggressive," Crawford said. "Coach had said that they had some big guys in there, but if I get to the basket, good things will happen for you. I think people had a preconceived notion that I am soft. I just go out there every night and try to improve. I am humble and I don't talk a lot about myself. I let my actions speak for me." "I thought the Bulls played good tonight," Pacers forward Ron Artest said. "In the future they're going to play like that a lot. In the fourth quarter, they stepped up. We knew we had to play hard, but they just stepped up and played good. Jamal Crawford is a good player and he stepped up and carried the team." Indiana had a three-game winning streak snapped and wasted a huge game from Jermaine O'Neal, who tied a career high with 38 points. "We just didn't have the energy and stamina to keep up with them tonight," Pacers coach Isiah Thomas said. "Chicago just kept coming. I don't think our guys fully understand yet. Until we understand what it takes as a group, this will happen." The Bulls, whose final two home games are against New Jersey and Philadelphia, started the game-ending spurt with Corie Blount's jumper, which was just their second basket of the quarter. Eddy Curry then scored five consecutive points to forge a 98-98 tie before Crawford and the Bulls took advantage of a costly mistake by the Pacers. After O'Neal's foul shots put Indiana up, 100-98, with 4:38 to play, the Pacers picked up a technical for a defensive three-second violation, setting the stage for Crawford's late surge. Former Pacer Jalen Rose converted the foul shot and Crawford made the first of his three running jumpers for a 101-100 edge with 3:47 remaining. He added a long 3-pointer that brought the United Center crowd to its feet and provided a 104-100 lead with 3:16 to play. "We played as a collective unit today," Rose said. "We are growing. We find ways to play good at home against the good teams, but we are a young team and need to improve on the road. I am excited about our team and the way we are improving." "You are always pleased with a win," Chicago coach Bill Cartwright said. "The big thing is that when we started the game, we really acknowledged how we needed to play - aggressive, tough and attacking. It is just really great to see our guys more aggressive." Although he tied his career high, O'Neal was scoreless in the third quarter, when the Pacers were unable to get the lead above five points. The teams entered the fourth period tied, 85-85. O'Neal regrouped and scored seven of Indiana's first 13 points of the final quarter before Crawford and the Bulls rallied. Rose scored 21 of his 27 points in the first quarter and Curry chipped in 15 as the Bulls shot 47 percent (41-of-87).
