Game Story

INDIANAPOLIS (Ticker) -- Reggie Miller got hot, Jermaine O'Neal and Jeff Foster got tough and the Indiana Pacers got even with the San Antonio Spurs. Miller scored 28 points and O'Neal and Foster combined to shut down Tim Duncan as the Pacers avenged last week's loss to the Spurs with an 89-79 victory, their ninth in 10 games. Picking up where he left off on Wednesday, when he scored all 13 of his points in the fourth quarter of a win over Atlanta. He made 10-of-15 shots, including 7-of-9 3-pointers to help Indiana avenge its only loss since December 27. "I'm getting my legs under me, but I don't want to get ahead of myself," said Miller, who has been bothered by a sore ankle. "The ankle is starting to feel pretty good." "Reggie is a pain in the (neck), a royal pain in the (neck)," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "When he feels it, he knows he feels it. And he just sticks it to you." In an 89-88 home win over Indiana six days ago, Duncan collected 30 points and 15 rebounds and made the game-winning shot with 44 seconds left in overtime. This time, O'Neal and Foster throttled the two-time MVP, holding him to 16 points on 4-of-18 shooting. "He's a great player, but Scot (Pollard), Jermaine and I used a variety of fronts and defenses to try and make him miss. We tried to keep the ball from him, because the key to their offense is for him to get the ball. The offense goes through him." "Jeff did a great job on me," Duncan admitted. "He contested every shot and he kept me from getting the ball in good spots. He just did a great job all around." Duncan did not make a basket in the second half until a pair of garbage hoops in the final 65 seconds after matters had been decided. He added nine rebounds and seven assists but was outplayed by O'Neal, who battled foul trouble for 20 points, 10 boards and five blocks. "He finished great and I thought he got off to a good start offensively," Pacers coach Rick Carlisle said. "He then got a couple of bad fouls that sent him to the bench. ... But in the fourth quarter, he was a monster. Everything went through him in the post." The Pacers limited the Spurs to less than 36 percent (28-of-78) shooting as they improved to 30-11, their best midway mark since entering the NBA in 1976. Tony Parker scored 14 points and Charlie Ward added 13 for the Spurs, who have lost three in a row after winning 16 of 17. "This is the most disappointing loss of the season," Popovich said. "The lack of mental toughness and leadership was not impressive. Maybe I need new speeches or something." O'Neal bounced off the bench early in the fourth quarter to make a banker and two free throws in an 8-0 spurt that gave Indiana the lead for good. Hedo Turkoglu answered with a 3-pointer, but O'Neal threw in a hook and a spinning jumper for a 77-68 lead with 5:26 left. While Duncan struggled, Miller put the finishing touches on the victory, throwing in a pair of 3-pointers in the last minute. "I think he is trying to tell me he wants more minutes," Carlisle said. A 3-pointer by Miller gave Indiana a 21-6 lead, but San Antonio stormed back with a 24-5 surge, opening a 44-35 advantage on a reverse layup by Duncan with 1:59 left in the first half. Miller's 3-pointer restored a 47-46 lead for the Pacers early in the second half. But O'Neal took a seat with his fourth foul less than two minutes later.
