Game Story

SALT LAKE CITY (Ticker) -- Stephen Jackson and Reggie Miller refused to give up after the Indiana Pacers blew a 25-point lead. Jackson and Miller took over down the stretch as the Pacers avoided an embarrassing defeat with an 89-83 triumph over the Utah Jazz. Again without injured All-Star forward Jermaine O'Neal - as well as point guard Jamaal Tinsley - Indiana scored the first 13 points and opened a 33-8 cushion on a 3-pointer by Miller with 1:23 left in the opening quarter. The Pacers shot 63 percent (12-of-19) from the floor in the first quarter, including 6-of-7 from the arc. "We just wanted to come out and set the tone," said Jackson, who scored a season-high 30 points. "In a couple of games, we didn't get off to a good start, we didn't come out with any emotion or intensity. I wanted to come out and set a tone on offense and be aggressive, and I was able to knock down some shots." "The way we came out tonight was really kind of disastrous," Jazz coach Jerry Sloan said. "We couldn't get close enough to guard anybody, and if they wanted to shoot it in our face, they did. If they wanted to drive the ball to the basket, they did." Still, Utah was resilient, closing the period on an 8-0 run and pulling within 55-42 at the break. The Pacers held a 69-57 advantage with 1:25 remaining in the third quarter before the Jazz scored 11 straight points, pulling within 69-68 on a follow dunk by Andrei Kirilenko 49 seconds into the final period. Indiana's lead was 77-72 after a jumper by Miller with 7:48 to play before Utah scored eight straight points, taking an 80-77 edge on a pair of free throws by Raja Bell with 3:21 remaining. "A lot of times when you get big leads, you start clock-watching," Jackson said. "Utah kept playing and got back in the game. They came back and got the lead. ... They kept playing." "We knew they were going to make a run," Miller said. "They always do, especially in this building." But instead of wilting, the Pacers scored eight straight points. Jackson made two free throws, Anthony Johnson nailed a jumper, Miller drained a fadeaway and Jackson sank another pair from the line for an 85-80 advantage with 56 seconds left. "It seems to be one of those things, kind of a repeat, where we get back in the ballgame and have chance, then we turn the ball over and miss some shots," Sloan said. "We really don't give ourselves much of a chance." Utah pulled within 85-82 after a follow shot by Mehmet Okur with 14 seconds remaining, but Austin Croshere countered with two free throws a second later. After Utah's Keith McLeod split a pair from the line, Miller iced the contest with two free throws with 7.6 seconds to go. "We showed great resilience by holding on to this (after) getting down three with three minutes left," Miller said. "I found a way to put the ball in the basket; our defense really stepped up, which was huge. Nice to end the road trip with a victory." "You know that if you get a lead on the road, the other team's going to make a run," Pacers coach Rick Carlisle said. "They did a great job of clawing their way back into the game, taking the lead. At that point we could've folded up, but we didn't. We stuck with it." In addition to Jackson's 30 points, Miller added 24 - 15 in the first quarter - for the Pacers, who had lost four of their previous five games. Anthony Johnson filled in nicely for Tinsley, who was nursing a bruised left foot, scoring 13 points to go with nine assists and seven rebounds for Indiana, which has defeated Utah in each of their last four meetings. Okur collected 18 points and 12 rebounds and Matt Harpring added 18 points for the Jazz, who shot just 37 percent (27-of-73) en route to their third straight defeat following a three-game winning streak.
