GAME RECAP

Reggie Miller scored 16 points, including seven in a 9-0 burst in the third quarter, and the Indiana Pacers had the best defensive effort in team history in an 85-66 victory over the Orlando Magic, who again lost Penny Hardaway to a knee injury.

Miller helped the Pacers maintain the form that gave them the best record in the Eastern Conference at the All-Star break. He helped turned a six-point lead into a 58-43 advantage in a span of less than two minutes, then let the defense take over.

"They're a fine-tuned machine," said Orlando's Nick Anderson. "The coaching staff has given them more confidence than I've ever seen."

Rik Smits added 16 points as the Pacers held Orlando to 34 percent (24-of-70) shooting from the field and bettered the team's previous best defensive effort by two points. They allowed 68 to the Denver Nuggets on February 20th last season.

"I really didn't expect the effort we had tonight," said Pacers coach Larry Bird. "I knew it was going to be a ragged game. We didn't shoot the ball well in practice yesterday and I knew it would carry to today. After four days off, it's hard to get into a rhythm."

Anderson scored 16 points for Orlando, which lost Hardaway to a deep muscle bruise behind his left knee with 66 seconds left in the first quarter. The All-Star guard suffered the injury during action and took himself out of the game when play stopped, but said he did not re-injure the previous ailment.

"I think I came down on Travis' (Best) foot and I will be out a couple of days," Hardaway said. "I pulled a muscle in my calf, but it's unrelated to my knee. My knee feels great. But things keep happening to us and I don't know why."

"We were already without Darrell (Armstrong) and when Penny went down, we went to Derek (Harper) and we didn't execute," said Orlando coach Chuck Daly, citing Armstrong's sprained right shoulder. "We struggled offensively and couldn't do much of anything, and they went out out and did what they wanted. Our effort was reasonable, but this was embarassing."

The Magic were within seven points at the half and closed the gap to 49-43 on a basket by Nick Anderson with 7:26 remaining in the third quarter. But Miller took over, nailing a 17-footer and a three-pointer. Dale Davis scored on a fast-break pass from Smits and Miller buried a 14-footer, again on the break, to open a 58-43 lead with 5:08 remaining.

"I felt really good tonight and didn't have any lingering feelings of travel and the day off," said Smits, who was an All-Star, along with Miller. "We got up and stayed up, and we are ready to begin the second half of the season."

It was the eighth win in nine games for the Pacers, who had their seven-game winning streak halted in the final game before the break. The Pacers were just 5-of-8 from the foul line -- both lows for Market Square Arena -- but cruised to their seventh straight home win since an 81-80 loss to the Phoenix Suns on January 6th.

The Magic were trying to win three straight games for the first time since a four-game winning streak from December 6th-11th. Orlando is 0-3 this season against the Pacers and fell to 5-12 all-time at Market Square Arena.

After the game-breaking run, Indiana maintained at least a 13-point lead and built it as high as 21 points on three different occasions, including an 80-59 bulge on a three-point play by Antonio Davis with 4:40 remaining. Davis finished with nine points and nine rebounds.

Indiana won easily despite a lack of sharpness on offense. The Pacers shot 43 percent (38-of-88) and had 13 shots blocked, a team record for an Indiana opponent. Despite Orlando's 18-of-25 effort from the foul line, the Magic were held scoreless in six three-point attempts and gave up 22 points off 18 turnovers.

"Tonight, we were playing our game and they tried to play our game, which ended in some easy baskets for us," said Indiana forward Derrick McKey, who had nine points, six rebounds and three steals.

Chris Mullin and Jalen Rose each added 12 points for the Pacers, while Horace Grant and Derek Strong totaled 12 apiece for Orlando.

Smits scored eight points in the first quarter to stake Indiana to a 24-17 lead.
