Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- Chris Mullin's 18-footer with 18 seconds left snapped a tie and the Indiana Pacers made a pair of big defensive plays to hold on for an 82-80 victory over the upstart Milwaukee Bucks.

After Mullin's wide-open jumper, the Pacers turned to defense for their fourth win in five games. Antonio Davis blocked a lane jumper by Glenn Robinson, who had 31 points and 10 rebounds.

"It was pretty hectic at the end," said Mullin, who scored nine points. "We got our opportunity on Antonio's big block. We knew we had to defend Glenn Robinson, because he's their go-to guy."

Indiana's Jalen Rose was fouled with six seconds left but missed both free throws, giving Milwaukee another chance. The Bucks inbounded to point guard Terrell Brandon, who tried to dribble through a double-team and lost the ball. Rose recovered and dribbled out the clock.

The Bucks claimed Robinson was held on their final possession.

"Glenn was held by (Mark) Jackson but we didn't get the call," Milwaukee coach George Karl said. "But we shouldn't expect to get the call, especially against a team like Indiana."

"You can look at the game tape," said Robinson, who made 13-of-22 shots. "It was a mere pick-and-roll. Mark Jackson grabbed my leg. Why not get a call? It was obvious. You're not supposed to get away with a call like that."

Reggie Miller scored 20 points for the Pacers (6-3), who moved into a tie for first place in the Central Division with Atlanta. Indiana, considered the favorites in the Eastern Conference, entered the contest one-half game behind Milwaukee (5-3), which is off to a good start under new coach Karl.

"We got a big block and executed the pick-and-roll," Jackson said. "The Bucks are a great basketball team with great shooters and scorers. Fortunately, we came away with the victory."

The Bucks missed 12 of their last 13 shots and have dropped five straight meetings with the Pacers. Robinson got almost no help as the rest of Milwaukee's starters managed just 23 points on 9-of-28 shooting.

Neither team led by more than four points in the final period. The Bucks' last lead came at 78-76 on a spinning layup by Robinson with 3:44 to go, but they went cold thereafter.

On one possession, Vinny Del Negro missed two 3-pointers from the left corner and Ray Allen missed one from the top of the arc. After grabbing three offensive rebounds, the Bucks turned it over and Miller got loose for a breakaway dunk that tied it with 2:34 left.

Milwaukee's Tyrone Hill missed two free throws and Allen went down after being poked in the eye, allowing Jalen Rose to go the length of the court for a layup and an 80-78 lead with 2:10 left. Del Negro drove for a tying layup with 1:19 remaining.

"It was a good win; we haven't played quite that well," Pacers coach Larry Bird said. "We got good play and hard play out of a lot of players."

"We played hard," Allen said. "We played until the end. We did everything we set out to do. A loose ball here or there ... it just didn't happen."

Dale Davis scored 10 points and Smits added eight for Indiana, which shot 44 percent (33-of-75) from the field but was beaten on the boards, 40-38.

Dell Curry scored nine points and Armon Gilliam eight for the Bucks, who shot 43 percent (32-of-74) and committed only eight turnovers while forcing 12.

Rik Smits and Dale Davis scored six points apiece in the first quarter as Indiana jumped to a 24-18 lead. Robinson got hot in the second quarter with 13 points on 5-of-5 shooting, pulling Milwaukee into a 45-45 halftime tie.

Miller and Robinson each scored eight points in the third period, which ended in a 68-68 tie.
