Game Story

INDIANAPOLIS (Ticker) -- The Indiana Pacers showed the Cleveland Cavaliers they have plenty in reserve. Fred Jones, James Jones and Eddie Gill came off the bench to score all the points in a decisive second-quarter run as the Pacers rolled to their season-high fifth straight win, a 106-82 victory over the Cavaliers. Stephen Jackson scored 28 points and Jermaine O'Neal added 20 for the Pacers (28-26), who have put together the best stretch of a very trying season. They are two games above .500 for the first time since January 21. The Joneses and Gill all started games earlier this season, when the Pacers were ravaged by injuries and suspensions. As teammates have recuperated and returned, they have assumed their original reserve roles and excelled in this one. "We're becoming a more confident team," Pacers coach Rick Carlisle said. "I thought our bench was really a key factor tonight. When you get 37 points off the bench and all of the guys got double-figure minutes, that really helps the starters." The Cavaliers held a 31-29 lead early in the second quarter on a basket by LeBron James, who scored 21 points on just 9-of-25 shooting. Indiana's trio of reserves combined to score every point in an 18-2 surge. Fred Jones and James Jones opened with 3-pointers before Cleveland's Lucious Harris made a jumper. Gill answered with a 3-pointer and James Jones sank two free throws before Gill made a pair of layups. "We just wanted to come in and provide some energy," James Jones said. "The playing time we (the bench) got early in the year has helped us tremendously. It allowed us to get the cobwebs off of our game and helped us get ready to come in and play in tough situations." "We actually talked about it when we were checking in. We knew us three had to bring some energy and lift," Gill added. "Personally, I feel comfortable in my role. I show up to the game ready to play as many minutes as they ask me to." Another 3-pointer by Fred Jones capped the burst at 47-33 with 4:56 left in the first half. "I think we're better in tune with what we are doing out there," Fred Jones said. "The starters got us off to a good start and we wanted to continue that. We moved the ball, drove it and kicked it out, and got some good looks." Indiana opened a 66-45 advantage on a jumper by O'Neal with 9:02 left in the third quarter and led by at least 13 points thereafter. The Pacers' reserves held a 37-18 scoring advantage as Austin Croshere contributed 10 and rookie David Harrison added eight. Anthony Johnson, another reserve, started for injured point guard Jamaal Tinsley and had 10 points and seven assists. In the last three games, Cleveland's bench has been outscored, 141-37. Indiana is getting hot at the right time as five of its next six games are on the road, including a four-game trek through the Western Conference. The Pacers have the longest current postseason streak of any team in the East. Zydrunas Ilgauskas had 20 points and 15 rebounds for the Cavaliers, who shot just 36 percent (33-of-91) while allowing the Pacers to shoot 52 percent (40-of-77). "We gave this game away. We were outhustled," Ilgauskas said. "We didn't execute on offense or defense. We just didn't work hard." Cleveland has lost four straight road games dating to January 28. "It was a bad effort," Cavaliers coach Paul Silas said. "We didn't compete. It was a very disappointing loss. We fell apart defensively and didn't pressure the ball. Indiana's a good team right now, so you have to give them some credit."
