Game Story

INDIANAPOLIS (Ticker) -- The Indiana Pacers looked far sharper without Jermaine O'Neal than the San Antonio Spurs did without Tim Duncan. Reggie Miller scored 21 points and became the 13th player in NBA history to reach the 25,000-point milestone as the Pacers handed the Spurs a season-high third straight loss, 100-93. "It's a nice accomplishment," Miller said. "It's been a lot of hard work, not only from me, but from teammates who've made sacrifices. I've played with a lot of point guards whose job it was to get me the ball. It was great to do it in front of the home crowd and, most importantly, we got a win that keeps us in the playoff hunt." The Pacers (34-33) are in seventh place in the Eastern Conference standings, one game ahead of the Philadelphia 76ers. Former Spur Stephen Jackson, Austin Croshere and Anthony Johnson added 18 points apiece for the Pacers, who rebounded from dropping both ends of a home-and-home series with New Jersey to improve to 6-4 since losing O'Neal to a separated right shoulder at Denver on March 3. The Spurs, who capped a winless three-game road trip, lost perennial MVP candidate Duncan to a right ankle sprain in a setback at Detroit on Sunday. After scoring a season-low 75 points at New York on Monday, they again were flat, shooting just 38 percent (28-of-73) from the field and allowing the Pacers to connect on 49 percent (35-of-71). "It was a very disappointing game," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "Physically and mentally, we didn't compete. We were soft in our approach and I'm shocked and unbelievably disappointed in the group as a whole. We have several guys that need to realize that they need to step up their game, because we are not that damn good without Tim Duncan. "On the other hand, Indiana has done a great job learning to play with key guys out. I guess they've had a little longer to figure it out." Indiana took the lead for good, 20-19, on a 3-pointer by Croshere with 3:49 left in the first quarter. Croshere was making just his second start since February 4 and 18th of the season. With 2:08 left in the period, the 39-year-old Miller sank two free throws to give him eight points in the game and 25,000 in his career. When the achievement was announced a minute later, he received a standing ovation. "Well, it's just as important," Miller said. "You kind of want to do everything the same way, through out the game. Free throws, 3-pointers ... it just so happened that it came at the line." "Reggie is somebody that every player in this league could learn from, especially from how he prepares and how he plays the game," Popovich said. "He's one of the all-time greats." The Pacers' edge was just 49-44 at the break, but they pushed it to as many as 18 points in the third quarter before taking an 80-67 advantage into the final period. Indiana led by 20 points with 9:42 remaining before San Antonio made the final score respectable. "We came out with great energy and a great defensive effort," said Johnson, who is seeing extra minutes at the point because Jamaal Tinsley is suffering from a bruised left foot. "We're adjusting. Now that we know that Jamaal might not be back for a while, I'm starting to settle in a bit. "I'm just trying to find some chemistry with Reggie and Jacks, and Dale (center Dale Davis) is working his way into the plan. A lot of guys are really stepping up." Reserve Brent Barry scored 17 points and Robert Horry added 15 for the Spurs, who received just 23 combined points on 6-of-22 shooting from All-Star guard Manu Ginobili and backcourt mate Tony Parker. "The difference was the desire to win," said Ginobili, who had 11 points on 2-of-9 shooting. "Their desire was much greater than ours. It's not that we didn't want to win, but we didn't do the necessary things in order to win. "It seems like we are feeling sorry for ourselves without Tim and we don't expect to win these games. It shouldn't be that way and we need to fix it."
