Game Recap

Reggie Miller overcame a poor first half to score 18 points and the Indiana Pacers survived down the stretch and matched the franchise record for wins in a 93-92 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks.

Chris Mullin, Antonio Davis and Derrick McKey scored 16 points apiece for the Pacers, who watched Milwaukee's Armon Gilliam miss a potential tying free throw with 35 seconds remaining and teammate Michael Curry missed an open 15-footer from the left corner before time expired.

"Different players have been stepping up at the end," Curry said. "All we want on the road against a good team is a chance and unfortunately it didn't fall."

"He was probably too wide open," Pacers coach Larry Bird said. "You don't like to have that, when you're up one and he gets a wide-open shot."

The Pacers (52-23) overcame an 11-point second-quarter deficit to tie the club record for wins, set in the 1994-95 and 1995-96 seasons. Indiana won all four games in the season series, its first sweep of Milwaukee since entering the NBA in 1976.

Ray Allen scored 22 points and Curry added 16 for the Bucks, who were denied a 4-0 road trip but have lost 14 of their last 15 games against teams with winning records. Milwaukee (33-42) still needs one win to surpass last season's win total.

"Our guys have been playing competitive basketball," Bucks coach Chris Ford said. "We had a golden opportunity. We shot well and had a good look to win the game. It was a great effort and we'll go home. I'm very happy with the performance of my guys."

In a game featuring 22 lead changes and 20 ties, the Bucks took their last lead at 88-86 with 3:04 remaining on a short jumper by Tyrone Hill, who had 10 points and nine rebounds. Two free throws by Miller tied it, and Antonio Davis and Gilliam traded baskets for a 90-90 tie with 2:02 to play.

Davis made 1-of-2 from the line with 1:50 to go, giving Indiana the lead for good. Milwaukee committed a turnover and Mullin buried a 20-footer to make it 93-90 with 1:20 left.

Terrell Brandon missed a jumper 11 seconds later, but Gilliam scored and was fouled with 35 seconds to go. However, the 80 percent foul shooter missed and Indiana rebounded. Mark Jackson misfired on a three-pointer and Milwaukee called time with 16 seconds left. Curry put a move on Miller and got loose on the left baseline. But he missed a wide-open shot and the horn sounded.

"We just missed out," Curry said. "It's one of those things, I guess."

"The ball ended up with Michael," Ford said. "He got a good look and unfortunately it didn't fall."

Jalen Rose scored 12 points and Davis grabbed nine rebounds for the Pacers, who shot 41 percent (30-of-73) from the field and made 30-of-37 free throws. Indiana committed just 12 turnovers while forcing 21.

"Our starters are just playing so-so basketball," Bird said. "We've got a long way to go before we get to the playoffs."

Brandon had 15 points and seven assists and Gilliam scored 12 points for the Bucks, who shot 54 percent (33-of-61) and had six players in double figures. Milwaukee shot 23-of-30 from the line, but just 2-of-5 in the final period.

"We did not get the stops that we needed in the first half," Jackson said. "We did get them in the second half and it made a difference. We need to keep from getting down and not have to fight back. We will keep working at it until we get it right."

The Bucks used no substitutes in the first quarter and jumped to a 30-25 lead behind 10 points from Curry. Two jumpers from Brandon and a runner from Allen opened the second quarter and gave Milwaukee its largest lead at 36-25.

With Miller struggling, the Pacers got back in the game behind McKey and Rose, who combined for 13 points in the second period. Indiana used a 16-4 run to reclaim the lead at 41-40 on a free throw by Rose with 4:35 left before halftime.

Miller missed his only shot of the first half, which ended with the Bucks holding a 49-48 lead. Mullin and Allen each scored nine points in the third quarter and the teams were tied 72-72 headed to the final 12 minutes.

"The second quarter was the key quarter," Bird said. "We were down 11 and got back to one at halftime. Derrick kept us in the game, he and Jalen. We made the big plays down the stretch to get the lead then, luckily, held on."
