Game Story

INDIANAPOLIS (Ticker) -- The injuries continue to mount for the Indiana Pacers. Somehow, so do the wins. Stephen Jackson scored 28 points as the injury-riddled Pacers climbed back above .500 with a 103-84 victory over the reeling Utah Jazz. The Pacers (32-31) have won three of their last four games and maintained their hold on seventh place in the Eastern Conference, a phenomenal achievement in the face of what has seemed like an endless list of injuries. "The will to win we have in this locker room is incredible," guard Anthony Johnson said. "No matter who puts on the uniform, we know we have to give our all and be successful. Making the playoffs is what this franchise has been about and we don't want to slide. From Donnie Walsh on down, we have the will to win." Earlier Wednesday, the Pacers announced that All-Star forward Jermaine O'Neal, who had missed the last five games with a shoulder injury, may need surgery and would not be back anytime soon. In addition, rookie center David Harrison was placed on the injured list with a sore left knee. But the Pacers press on in search of their eighth straight playoff appearance, the longest current run in the East. They never trailed and had a relatively easy time of it against the Jazz, who have lost seven in a row. "We have some of our stars missing, but we realize that we still have a chance to reach our goal," Jackson said. "Guys are starting to get it in their minds that we can do this with the people we have. We just have to keep our swagger and our confidence. "My mom always said that you can't worry about what you can't control. We can't control when JO will be back or when Jamaal (injured point guard Jamaal Tinsley) will be back. ... We just have to stay positive as a team." Jackson was hot early and late. He scored seven points in an 11-1 run that opened a 19-9 lead late in the first quarter, then scored 13 points on a flurry of 3-pointers in the final period. "I hit some shots, but the key was holding on to our lead," Jackson said. "We kept it close on the boards, which we didn't do when we played them in Utah, and we got to the line and knocked them down. We know we don't have the luxury of giving away leads. Every game is big now." Veteran Reggie Miller scored 11 of his 15 points in the third quarter, when Indiana broke open the game. Miller, a future Hall of Famer who has announced that this season will be his last, is averaging 20 points in his last six games. "I missed a couple of shots early that I should have made, but I just tried to stay aggressive," Miller said. "We really buckled down on defense in the second half and made them go to second and third options. Stephen got hot and we were able to capitalize on it." Johnson scored 12 points and Dale Davis added nine and 12 rebounds for the Pacers, who have won the last five meetings with the Jazz. Mehmet Okur scored 16 points for Utah, which fell to 0-3 on its five-game road trip. Coach Jerry Sloan again remained one win behind Red Auerbach (938) on the all-time wins list. "That team is well-coached and they execute. They make shots," Sloan said. "We can execute, but if we don't make shots, it doesn't look very good. When we play bad, we get down or get comfortable with losing. It all depends on what kind of contract you have. ... You can get comfortable with your contract, and I think we have a little of that." "It's like an avalanche, you can't stop it," Jazz forward Andrei Kirilenko said. "The only thing we can try to do is come and play hard every night. Tonight, that didn't happen." Indiana did not shoot well in the first half but made 17-of-18 free throws to open a 44-37 lead. Miller scored 11 points in the first 7 1/2 minutes of the third period, widening the margin to 63-45.
