Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- The Golden State Warriors showed some fight, but an old, familiar face won the game for the Indiana Pacers. Reggie Miller led the Pacers in scoring for just the fourth time this season, netting 14 of his 21 points in the first half of a 96-88 victory over the Warriors. "What we wanted to do was get off to to a lead quickly, which we did," Miller said. "They gave us all we could handle at our place, so we knew we were in for a challenge here. It is always tough in this league, especially to defeat a Western Conference team twice in a season." Pacers All-Star forward Jermaine O'Neal was ejected with Warriors forward Cliff Robinson with 3:23 left in the contest. The pair picked up technical fouls four seconds earlier after Robinson took issue with an elbow from O'Neal. On the ensuing possession, O'Neall and Robinson got into a heated exchange and were tossed by referee Joey Crawford, shouting expletives at one another as they left the court. The players were teammates on the Portland Trail Blazers during O'Neal's rookie season in 1996-97. They apologized and exchanged hugs in front of the Pacers' locker room after the game. "Sometimes it is like when you fight with a family member," O'Neal said. "I have known him since '96, when he took me under his wing. I was able to learn a lot. I have no hard feelings, it was just a scuffle in the heart of a basketball game." "That's my guy, just a moment in the game," Robinson said. "If it's someone I had a conflict with, I would have done something different." The Pacers opened the second half with a 9-0 run and grabbed a 61-36 lead before the Warriors chipped away. Golden State closed the third quarter with a 27-10 spurt to slie the deficit to 71-64. Nine times, the Warriors got within six points in the fourth quarter. But they got no closer as Fred Jones, who came on after All-Star Ron Artest fouled out, made all four of his free throws in the final 29 seconds. "You are away from home and you get up by 25 points, you know that other team is going to make a run," Indiana coach Rick Carlisle said. "We kept our composure and did what we had to do." Miller made 5-of-10 3-pointers. Jonathan Bender added season highs of 14 points and six rebounds for Indiana, which has won five of six games and eight of 10 to improve the Eastern Conference's best record to 44-16. Artest returned after a five-game absence following surgery on his left thumb. He finished with 12 points and six rebounds in 28 minutes. "I felt confortable," Artest said. "The team was playing well without me. The important thing is we got the victory." Mike Dunleavy scored 24 points and grabbed a career-high 20 rebounds for Golden State, which has dropped three in a row and has been swept by the Pacers in four of the last seven seasons. "Dunleavy's performance was off the charts, he played absolutely phenomenal," Warriors coach Eric Musselman said. "He did a great job rebounding the ball, he had great command of the floor." "I was just trying to chase (the rebounds) down," Dunleavy said. "I was guarding the point guard for most of the night, so I was able to run after balls. That was probably the difference between 10 or 20 rebounds." Jason Richardson added 19 points and nine rebounds, but Golden State was an dreadful 2-of-18 from the 3-point line.
