Game Story

WASHINGTON (Ticker) -- The 3-point shooting touch returned for the Indiana Pacers when they needed it most. After making just 2-of-20 shots from the arc in the first three quarters, the surging Pacers got 3-pointers from Anthony Johnson, James Jones and Reggie Miller in a pivotal 12-0 fourth-quarter run for a 79-76 victory over the Washington Wizards. The win was the third in a row and fifth in six games for Indiana (38-34), which moved into sixth place in the Eastern Conference. "Right now, every game for us is a playoff-type atmosphere," Miller said. "We're trying to obviously better ourselves and move up in the standings. We're doing a lot of scoreboard watching as well, but we've got to continue to win games and get better." The Wizards held a 69-61 lead with just under seven minutes left before the Pacers went on their decisive run. Dale Davis started it with a dunk and a free throw, then set a screen to free up Johnson for a 3-pointer with 4:32 remaining. Jones drilled a 3-pointer over Gilbert Arenas to give the Pacers the lead for good, 70-69 with 3:39 left. Miller was inexplicably left alone on the left side for a 3-pointer, increasing the advantage to 73-69 with 3:10 remaining. It was the fifth 3-pointer in six fourth-quarter attempts for the Pacers, who made 11-of-25 shots from the arc in a 114-108 overtime upset of Miami on Thursday night. "We did not shoot well and we did not execute well offensively or defensively for three quarters," Johnson said. "But we hung in there and got a couple threes to fall for us and that was the key to making our run. A three here, a three there and before you know it we had the lead." Arenas scored on a layup with 28 seconds left to pull the Wizards within 79-76. After Jones missed a 3-pointer with four seconds remaining, the Wizards had a chance to tie the game. But Indiana did not allow Arenas to catch the inbounds pass and Damone Brown missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer. "I looked at all the options and I was open, so I took it," Brown said. "The shot felt good." The loss snapped a four-game winning streak for the Wizards (41-31), who are tied with Chicago for fourth place and home-court advantage in the first round. "There are 10 games left and there is a lot of talk about the homecourt fourth seed, but we are really just playing to win," said Washington's Larry Hughes, who made just 3-of-16 shots and finished with 12 points. Both teams shot 36 percent from the field, but the Pacers salvaged their performance with seven 3-pointers compared to just three (3-of-12) for Washington. "That was the difference. They hit their threes in the fourth quarter and we never did," Wizards coach Eddie Jordan said. The first half barely resembled an NBA game, much less one involving possible playoff teams. The game was tied, 29-29 at intermission. The Pacers shot 35 percent, including 1-of-11 from 3-point range, while the Wizards were 28 percent from the field and 4-of-10 from the free throw line. "I think the first team that showed a sign of energy was going to win that game," said Indiana's Stephen Jackson, who missed all nine of his 3-point attempts. "We knew we had to make the first run and keep it, and we were able to do that." Actually, the Wizards had the first run, going on a 14-4 spurt in the third quarter. Arenas started it with a pair of baskets and Juan Dixon capped it with a jumper, giving the Wizards a 57-44 lead with 2:54 left. The Pacers closed the quarter with a 9-2 run, including a 3-pointer by Jones. "We hoped to be able to hang around and steal it at the end and fortunately it happened for us," Pacers coach Rick Carlisle said.
