GAME RECAP

Rik Smits scored 13 of his 21 points in the fourth quarter as the Indiana Pacers pulled away for a 101-87 victory over the Golden State Warriors, making Chris Mullin's return to the Bay Area a successful one.

Reggie Miller added 19 points and Jalen Rose contributed 11 for Indiana, which outscored Golden State, 30-17, in the fourth quarter. Mullin, who was received a standing ovation by the fans, managed only five points on 2-of-6 shooting, adding four rebounds and three assists.

"It's got to be tough on him," Indiana coach Larry Bird said. "After spending his whole career here, it had to be tough on him to come back and play this game. We all wanted to do real well, and I know how tough the situation was. At least we got the win for him."

Mullin, one of the best players in the history of the Golden State franchise, spent the first 12 seasons of his career with the Warriors before his off-season trade to the Pacers. He helped lead Golden State to the playoffs five times and is the franchise's all-time leader in games played and steals and is fourth in scoring with 16,120 points.

"It (reception) most than I expected," Mullin said. "It was nice, touching really touchcing, emotional and I appreceited it. At this day and age, you don't see that unless you win a championship or retire. It was nice to be recognized for what I did."

The Pacers have won four of their last five games, and eight of the 11 meetings with the Warriors.

Jim Jackson scored 23 points and Jason Caffey had 21 and 11 rebounds for the Warriors, who have lost five of their last six games.

Mullin's three-pointer with 8:42 left in the third quarter gave Indiana a 58-44 lead. Caffey scored half of the points in a 26-11 run that put the Warriors back in front. He made two free throws with 23.1 seconds to go in the quarter, giving Golden State a 70-69 lead.

But Antonio Davis' dunk with 1.6 seconds left allowed the Pacers to carry a 71-70 advantage into the final period.

Fred Hoiberg scored all of his eight points in a 12-0 run to begin the quarter as Indiana went ahead, 83-70.

"I guess it was my turn in the rotation," Hoiberg said. "My shots came and they went in. It felt good. I have to be more aggressive and I have been working my way back into the lineup. I hope I get another chance again."

Golden State closed within 84-78 with 6:07 remaining after Clarence Weatherspoon sank one of two free throws. But Smits scored nine of the next 11 points, including a three-point play with 2:07 left, as the Pacers pushed their lead to 95-80.

"I think we definitely had momentum going into the fourth quarter," Golden State head coach P.J. Carlesimo said. "Four of the first six posessions we turned the ball over to start the fourth and we just didn't get stops. We played really hard, the way we competed, we outrebounded them on the boards."

"Rik Smits played a hell of a game," said Jackson. "He's so tough to stop, and then they capitalized on our mistakes."

Golden State was unable to get closer than 10 points the rest of the way.

"I think they played better after three quarters than we did," Bird said. "We had one good run and got lucky and won the game."

Antonio Davis chipped in with 15 points and eight rebounds, Dale Davis contributed 10 and 12, and Mark Jackson dished out 11 assists for the Pacers, who shot 51 percent (44-for-86) from the field.

Erick Dampier had 12 points and 15 rebounds, while Donyell Marshall was held to just four points and eight boards for the Warriors, who shot 38 percent (31-for-81) from the field but held a 52-41 edge in rebounding.

"He (Marshall) had a tough night tonight but if you look at our frontline, we only made 6-of-35," Carlesimo said. "The shots were decent but they just didn't go in, even though we got the rebounds. They're (the Pacers) a great defensive team with great quickness. The blend of their team is so solid and they work hard defensively."
