GAME RECAP

Chris Mullin scored 20 points and Rik Smits added 19 in three quarters as the Indiana Pacers remained perfect against the woeful Toronto Raptors, handing them their sixth straight loss with a 105-77 rout.

The Pacers lifted their all-time mark to 9-0 against Toronto, which scored just 33 points in the second half to suffer its fourth double-digit loss of the season.

Indiana began the third quarter with a 49-44 lead before using a 13-4 run to pull away for good. Smits got things rolling with a jumper 14 seconds into the quarter and Mullin's basket capped it for a 62-48 lead with 7:50 left.

"We were in a good rhythm," said Mullin. "Sometimes you take an extra half-second and that creates some space. Tonight we were doing the little things right. We're starting to get in sync with each other and it's only going to get better."

"I told them at the half that they needed to play 24 minutes of good, solid basketball," said Indiana coach Larry Bird. "But they played better than I anticipated."

John Wallace scored 17 points and Damon Stoudamire added 10 and 14 assists for Toronto, which shot 36 percent in the second half. Rookie teenager Tracy McGrady chipped in 10 points and 11 rebounds.

"I seem to shoot well here," observed Smits, who hit 8-of-13 from the field. "I like playing in big arenas like this. They were hoping we would miss our shots, but we didn't."

The Pacers shot 55 percent (41-of-74) and hit 19-of-27 from the line. Toronto hit all nine shots from the stripe, but converted 42 percent (33-of-78) from the floor.

The Raptors' only win came November 4th against Golden State, which remains winless.

Jalen Rose gave the Pacers 12 points off the bench while point guard Mark Jackson pulled down a team-high 10 rebounds to go with 11 assists.

Jackson, who also had six points, helped Indiana to a commanding 44-30 edge off the glass.

"Mark played excellent," praised Bird. "Anytime your point guard gets you 10 rebounds, that helps a lot. The record looks better at 4-5 than 3-6."

The game started close until the Pacers expanded a 5-4 lead with an 8-2 run. Toronto pulled close towards the end of the first half, but a nine-point third quarter by Mullin helped put away the Raptors.

"No excuses," said Raptors coach Darrell Walker. "We just haven't won any basketball games. My guys have to get a win, it's as simple as that. Marcus (Camby) is hurt, I appreciate him playing. He's got tendinitis in his knees, he's in true pain."

Camby had just eight points in 24 minutes and Walt Williams hit just 2-of-10 shots for seven.

"Coach just wants me to rest up," Camby continued. "With tendinitis you need rest. If it was up to me, I'd play all 82 games.

"Everyone is still confident we could turn it around," Camby said. "The effort is still was there. If we could get the crowd behind us maybe we could take off."

Fred Hoiberg had 11 points and Antonio Davis added 10 for the Pacers, who are 3-0 against teams with losing records, but just 1-5 against teams over .500.
