GAME RECAP

Antonio Davis sank two crucial free throws in the final seconds as the Indiana Pacers held off a furious rally by Rony Seikaly and the Orlando Magic for a 95-92 victory, notching their second six-game winning streak in four weeks.

Mark Jackson scored 10 of his season-high 18 points and Chris Mullin had half of his 18 in the third quarter as the Pacers opened a 17-point lead.

The Magic stormed back, pulling within 93-92 with 6.4 seconds to go on a tip-in by Seikaly, who scored a season-high 37 points and grabbed 12 rebounds.

Davis, who scored 13 points off the bench, answered by hitting a pair of foul shots just two seconds later. Horace Grant's high-arcing three-point attempt as time expired was off the mark, giving Indiana its 15th win in 18 games.

"We lost a lot of close games early in the year, just like that there, we could have lost this one," Pacers coach Larry Bird said. "As of late, we've made a lot of plays down the stretch."

"It was a great comeback, it just makes you think that if we could have made a couple of things during the game, it could have turned the other way," Seikaly said. "You work so hard and we had every chance. ... Nobody cares, it's a loss."

The Pacers, who also won six straight games from November 27th-December 7th, had seven players in double figures. Indiana was outscored 30-20 in the final period, but shot 51 percent (36-of-71) from the field overall while limiting the Magic to 39 percent (37-for-94).

"We are a veteran basketball team and we understand mistakes are going to be made," Jackson said. "We are not going to be rattled. We continued to do what we were doing and we took care of the basketball."

Jackson had eight assists and six rebounds and helped atone for a rather lackluster performance by the Pacers' top two scorers, Reggie Miller and Rik Smits, who had just 12 points apiece.

"We are playing together more and learning from each other," Mullin said. "Big things were made early about our losses. We haven't been together very long, but I think the way we handled it is why where we are at. There is no pointing fingers or panic."

Miller's two free throws with 2:15 to go built Indiana's lead to 92-80, but Orlando reeled off the next eight points. Grant hit two layups and Seikaly had two buckets, including a short jumper that pulled the Magic within 92-88 with 56 seconds remaining.

After Jackson drained a free throw, Seikaly made a pair from the stripe with 32 seconds left to make it 93-90. Grant tied up Jackson on the ensuing inbounds play and easily won the jump ball, eventually leading to Seikaly's tip-in.

"What looked like a blowout turned into a very exciting game," Magic coach Chuck Daly said. "I can't commend our players enough on their effort late in the game, particularly in the last quarter."

But the comeback came up just short when Grant missed from three-point range, from where the Magic hit just 1-of-8.

Grant finished with 15 points and a season-high 14 rebounds for Orlando, which owned a 51-39 edge on the glass.

Travis Best scored all 10 of his points in the second quarter, including four in a 12-2 run that gave the Pacers a 41-32 lead on a jumper by Davis with 5:37 left.

Dale Davis had 10 points and nine boards for Indiana, which has won three of its last four trips to Orlando.
