Game Story

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Ticker) -- Reggie Miller scored five critical points in the final two minutes and finished with 19 as the Indiana Pacers remained perfect against the Vancouver Grizzlies, hanging on for a 101-97 victory.

Rik Smits scored 24 points to lead the Pacers, who improved to 2-2 on a five-game road trip that ends Sunday against the Los Angeles Lakers. An early favorite to win the championship, Indiana (3-2) will try to notch back-to-back wins for the first time this season.

"We needed a win. We had a couple of really disappointing losses already," Smits said. "We try to pride ourselves on never losing two in a row."

Chris Mullin scored 10 of his 13 points in the third quarter, helping the Pacers take a 79-70 lead. The Grizzlies fought back within four on a few occasions in the final period, but Miller and the Pacers always had an answer.

Vancouver trimmed the deficit to 94-89 with 1:35 to go, but Miller responded with his third 3-pointer. The lead was 97-93 after the Grizzlies' Sam Mack hit a follow shot with 25 seconds left, but Miller made a pair of free throws to help seal the win.

Indiana defeated Vancouver for the seventh time in as many all-time meetings, failing to record a double-digit victory for just the second time in the series.

"It doesn't matter if it's a dominating game, until the Grizzlies beat us, it's good enough," Miller said. "We know we've got them mentally beat. Anytime they get close, we've always made a rally."

Shareef Abdur-Rahim collected 32 points, 11 assists and seven rebounds for the Grizzlies, whose lone win in four games this season came Wednesday against the Los Angeles Clippers.

"They're supposed to be one of the better teams in the league, and you just have to step up to that challenge," Abdur-Rahim said of the Pacers. "We're disappointed we lost, but we're gonna have to take some positives, sticking in there with them."

Grizzlies rookie Mike Bibby put together another strong effort, going for 12 points on 6-of-8 shooting while contributing five rebounds and five assists. He had 18 points and 12 assists Wednesday after scoring 14 points on 4-of-26 shooting in the first two games.

"The Grizzlies seem to be getting better and Bibby's a big addition for them down the road," Smits added.

Mack added 20 points and helped Vancouver grab a 43-38 lead midway through the second quarter. But the Pacers took control with a 12-2 burst, keyed by six points from Smits. He buried a pair of jumpers before Jalen Rose fed Travis Best for a fast-break layup that gave Indiana a 50-45 lead with 37 seconds left before intermission.

"I thought one of the key things was the swing at the end of the first half, where we went from up five to down five," said Grizzlies coach Brian Hill. "That was very important. We had some good situations in the fourth, we cut it to four. But we were unable to get the ball to some of the open people."

The Pacers went on for a 52-47 halftime advantage and never trailed in the final 24 minutes.

The lead was down to 59-57 early in the third when Mullin fed Smits for a jumper and buried a long 3-pointer to spark a 16-6 run. Jackson found Miller for a layup, recording one of his 11 assists, and Mullin sank two free throws. Smits sank an eight-footer before Mullin connected again from beyond the arc and a layup by Antonio Davis made it 75-63 with 2:35 left.

Trailing 83-72 early in the fourth, Vancouver used a 9-2 spurt early in the quarter to make it a game. Abdur-Rahim had five points in the run, including a free throw that cut it to 85-81 with 6:42 to go.

Davis came back with a dunk and later converted a three-point play before a jumper by Smits made it 92-83 with 4:23 remaining.

"We scored a lot of points and we always can score a lot, but my concern the last few games is our defensive effort," said Indiana coach Larry Bird. "It was non-existent in the first quarter and that sets the tone for the rest of the game. But we played the run and lucky for us, we held on and won the game."

Jalen Rose contributed 10 points and seven assists for Indiana, which shot 52 percent (40-of-77) and made 14-of-15 free throws.

Bryant Reeves scored 13 points off the bench for the Grizzlies, who hit just 2-of-7 three-pointers while the Pacers connected on 7-of-16.
