GAME RECAP

Reggie Miller scored 30 points as the Indiana Pacers prevailed in the battle of Eastern Conference division leaders with a 110-101 victory over the Miami Heat, who had their season high-tying four-game winning streak snapped.

The Pacers never trailed and grabbed their biggest lead, 73-51, when Miller drained one of his four three-pointers to cap a 9-2 spurt with 6:26 left in the third quarter.

"This is a team we're going to see down the road in the playoffs," Miller said. "We were looking at this game on the schedule for quite a while. We really wanted this one. Everybody played and did something, it shows how deep we are."

Tim Hardaway scored 14 of his 32 points in the final period and the last of his six three-pointers cut the deficit to 105-101 with 1:23 to play.

But Antonio Davis, who had 16 points, answered with an easy dunk and Hardaway missed a fallaway on the other end. Going for the rebound, Davis was sent to the line after being hacked by Alonzo Mourning, who fouled out with 21 points and 15 rebounds.

Davis sank one free throw and Jalen Rose added a pair with 36 seconds left to help seal the win for the Pacers, who have won nine of their last 10 games. Indiana remained a half-game in front of the Chicago Bulls for first place in the Central Division, while Miami's lead over New Jersey in the Atlantic Division dropped to three games.

"Tonight, they played well. They didn't turn it over and played a consistent 48 minutes," Hardaway said. "We've just got to keep our mouths shut and play disciplined."

Despite three players fouling out, the game was relatively calm after these teams displayed some bad blood in their last meeting when Miami came away with a 101-90 victory on December 28th.

As he did against Miami earlier this season, Miller continuously looked at the Heat bench after each three-pointer he made, but no confrontations ever took place.

Mourning helped the Heat to a 42-32 rebounding edge but committed seven of Miami's 17 turnovers, which resulted in 22 points for the Pacers.

"They handle the ball well against pressure. They never get flustered," Heat coach Pat Riley said. "Our inability to handle and pass the ball and not make mistakes is what did us in."

Miami scored just eight points off nine turnovers by Indiana, which won the season series from the Heat, 3-1.

"We wanted this win bad, and we got it," Pacers coach Larry Bird said. "I hope we get the opportunity to meet them in the playoffs. It will mean we made it through the first round. Homecourt advantage is big and we beat them in the season series."

"We had extra motivation because of the loss (on December 28th), but we were also thinking if we beat these guys, we're up 3-1 in the season series and eliminate the questions that may come up down the road," Davis said.

Leading 37-33 early in the second quarter, Indiana used a 12-2 run to take control. Davis scored six points during that stretch and Derrick McKey started and ended the spurt with two free throws, giving the Pacers a 49-35 cushion with 3:01 left.

Indiana continued to build its lead after halftime when back-to-back layups by Rik Smits sparked the 9-2 run, which resulted in the Pacers' largest lead. Smits fouled out with 6:36 left in the game, finishing with 15 points.

Hardaway had 11 points and three three-pointers in the late run that got Miami back in it, but the Heat were unable to complete the comeback.

"They were getting fast-break opportunities in the open court and we were just confused," Hardaway concluded.

Travis Best contributed 11 points and Dale Davis chipped in 10 for Indiana, which has won four of its last five road games. Miller hit all 10 of his free throws and all four of his three-point attempts.

Jamal Mashburn scored 19 points for the Heat, but fellow starting forward P.J. Brown fouled out with just two points.
