Game Story

INDIANAPOLIS (Ticker) -- Retiring Indiana Pacers guard Reggie Miller has not been an All-Star for some time. Against the Portland Trail Blazers, he played like one. Miller scored 27 of his season-high 36 points in the second half as the Pacers overcame a poor shooting performance to post a 95-87 triumph over the Trail Blazers. A five-time All-Star, Miller had failed to reach double figures in 10 of his last 12 games and had not scored as many as 20 points since December 27. The future Hall of Famer will retire after an 18-year career at season's end. "We just rode him," Pacers coach Rick Carlisle said. "He's capable of piling up points like that. He was great and he's still capable of this type of explosion." Miller made 10-of-17 shots, including 4-of-10 from the arc, and sank 12-of-12 free throws as he shattered his previous season high of 32 points against Milwaukee on December 7. "Well, our two big guys (Jermaine O'Neal and Stephen Jackson) were struggling and I just wanted to add a third scoring option," Miller said. "Things started to fall for me in the second half. It was fun to run some of the old plays and get some looks, but the biggest thing was getting the win." "The difference was Reggie Miller," Portland coach Maurice Cheeks said. "He was doing things only Reggie can do. He took the game over in the third quarter." Portland trailed by as many as 12 points in the third quarter but cut the deficit to 71-70 with 6:55 remaining on a jumper by Darius Miles, who scored 18 points. But Miller ended Indiana's drought of more than eight minutes without a basket by sinking a 3-pointer, and the Pacers never looked back. The 39-year-old Miller, who has played his entire career with the Pacers, brought the crowd to its feet with chants of "Reg-gie, Reg-gie" when he sank eight free throws in the last 40 seconds to seal the victory. "Eighteen years here and this city has really backed me and my family," Miller said. "We've had a great relationship. It's always been love-love. ... It's been wonderful for me." The Pacers struggled from the floor all game, shooting just 36 percent (32-of-89). O'Neal, Indiana's lone All-Star and fifth in the NBA in scoring, made just 4-of-19 shots and scored 10 points. Jeff Foster had 14 points and 17 rebounds - nine offensive - for Indiana, which has won three of four heading into the All-Star break. "I like to mix it up and I think that's one of my strong points," said Foster, who has 34 rebounds in the last two games. "I think we'll have people healthy and ready to make a run the last 30 games." "This was big for us, going into the break," O'Neal said. "If we lose here, we're three games under .500. We have a tough schedule to start the second half, so keeping the rhythm and momentum was big for us." After underachieving in the first 51 games because of suspensions and injuries, Miller knows that the Pacers' streak is only a beginning. "We have to stretch this to seven, eight in a row, and defense is where it's going to start," he said. "If we can hold teams in the low 80s night in and night out, we'll be in good shape." The Trail Blazers received another fine effort from Joel Przybilla, who collected 18 points, 17 rebounds and a career-high six blocked shots. He has three consecutive double-doubles for Portland, which has lost three of four, all on the road. "Defensively, we think we're there," Przybilla said. "Offensively, we have to execute a lot better. It doesn't matter what I do, win or lose. It was a tough loss tonight, so my performance doesn't really matter."
