GAME RECAP

Vlade Divac scored seven straight Charlotte points to fuel a late fourth-quarter rally, lifting the Hornets to their fourth consecutive victory, 89-82 over the Indiana Pacers.

Divac finished with 18 points, 13 rebounds and four steals and teammate Glen Rice scored 30 points. Dell Curry also scored 15 points off the bench and Anthony Mason had 11 rebounds for the Hornets, who have matched the best start in franchise history. The 1993-94 squad also opened 4-2.

"I felt really good in the second half," said Divac. "We played good defense throughout the game. I felt really good on the floor. Our guys were able to pass out of the double-team and it came right to me."

With Indiana holding a 76-72 lead, Divac hit a jumper with 3:46 remaining. He turned a hook shot into a three-point play and tipped in a miss of Rice's shot to give the Hornets a 79-76 lead with 2:21 left.

Indiana pulled within 83-82 with 40 seconds left on a three-pointer by Reggie Miller, but Divac answered with a jumper 20 seconds later to put the Hornets back up by three. Mason and Rice each hit a pair of free throws over the final 13.3 seconds.

"This was a knockout, dragout kind of game. Our guys really came out with a purpose," said Charlotte coach Dave Cowens. "We got shots when we needed shots and we got stops when we needed stops. Indiana runs a lot of motion and they played hard as well. Winning four in a row really makes me believe and we're doing it without Bobby Phills (out with a sprained right ankle)."

Miller had 20 points to lead the way for Indiana, which won both meetings with the Hornets in Charlotte last season. Antonio Davis chipped in with 14 points and nine rebounds.

"Coming down the stretch we juts have to pull it out," said Indiana coach Larry Bird. "We have to make our free throws and have better defensive pressure. We played pretty decent, we just couldn't get over the hump. You have to win on the road in this league to build your confidence."

Indiana's Rik Smits scored the 10,000th point of his career with a first-quarter jumper.
