Game Story

SACRAMENTO, California (Ticker) -- Ron Artest lost his cool in the second quarter and the rest of the Indiana Pacers lost it in the final minutes. Brad Miller had his second career triple-double in his first game against his former team and Vlade Divac helped rattle the Pacers down the stretch as the Sacramento Kings posted a 91-88 victory. The Pacers trailed by as many as 16 points in the third quarter but rallied without Artest, their second-leading scorer who was ejected for arguing a call late in the second quarter. Indiana had an 88-87 lead after Austin Croshere made a 3-pointer from the left corner with 3:14 remaining but did not score again. Divac responded 19 seconds later with a spinning layup to give Sacramento the lead for good, then drew fouls on star Jermaine O'Neal at both ends of the floor just eight seconds apart. "Down the stretch, we played better defense," Divac said. "We cannot afford to look careless in the fourth quarter and give them easy shots." "I don't want to talk about (the officials) because you know what happens when you talk about it," O'Neal said. "It came down to a few things here and there." Clearly flustered by the calls, O'Neal was given a warning before the ensuing inbounds pass and missed a jumper that could have given Indiana the lead with 1:43 remaining. Sacramento's Peja Stojakovic, who scored 27 points, missed a jumper with 85 seconds to go. O'Neal grabbed the rebound and got another on a miss by teammate Reggie Miller at the other end before missing another jumper with 29 seconds left. Stojakovic sank a pair of free throws 17 seconds later, giving him 11 points in the final quarter. The Pacers could not get the ball to Reggie Miller on their final possession and Jamison Brewer barely hit the rim on a 3-pointer as time expired. "You know that's where (the Pacers) are going," Brad Miller said. "I mean it's the Pacers, you think of Reggie Miller. We just stayed up on everybody. Anybody can shoot the three, but you have to pressure them and make it tough." Brad Miller, who was acquired from Indiana in a three-team offseason trade, had 18 points, 15 rebounds and 10 assists. It was his second triple-double in 18 games with the Kings. "It was really tough," he said of facing his former teammates. "I talked to (Indiana forward) Jeff Foster last night and he kept calling me triple-double. I think that jinxed him for tonight." Divac had 12 points and a season-high 10 rebounds for Sacramento, which held on, despite scoring just 34 points in the second half. "We just allowed them back in the game," Kings coach Rick Adelman said. "We didn't react very well. We had the 16-point lead and we were acting like we were 16 points down, trying to get it all back. We have to have better composure than that." O'Neal finished with 20 points and 13 rebounds and Al Harrington added 17 and nine as Indiana shot 39 percent (32-of-82) in the finale of their 2-3 road trip against Western Conference teams. "It's been a long week," O'Neal said. "I just want to get back and play on our home court. It hasn't been right for us on the road."
