Game Story

ORLANDO, Florida (Ticker) -- Anfernee Hardaway atoned for a crucial missed free throw by scoring the first six points of overtime and propelling the Orlando Magic to a 103-100 victory over the Indiana Pacers in a battle of division leaders.

Hardaway went to the foul line with 14 seconds left in the fourth quarter and a chance to ice the game, but he missed his second attempt, leaving the Magic with a 95-92 lead. Indiana worked the ball to the top of the key for Mark Jackson, who drained the tying 3-pointer with 3.3 seconds remaining.

"One thing about this team and this coaching staff is the coaches come over and set up another play for me to shoot another one saying this one is going to be money," Jackson said. "It gives you confidence and step up and make shots. Unfortunately, it did not allow us to take over in overtime."

Clearly annoyed at his missed free throw, Hardaway made two from the line to open the extra session, then drove past Reggie Miller for a layup while drawing a foul. The ensuing free throw made it 100-95 and Hardaway increased Orlando's lead to six points by making the second of two from the line with 3:08 left.

Jackson missed a 3-pointer, but the Pacers grabbed the rebound and Dale Davis was drew a foul while attempting a dunk. He hit the second of two foul shots then threw down a dunk on Indiana's next possession. A hook shot by Rik Smits with 1:45 remaining brought the Pacers within 101-100.

The Magic called timeout and attempted to get the ball to Hardaway. But with Indiana clamping down on the Magic point guard, Horace Grant was left alone in the right corner and nailed a 17-footer.

"I wouldn't call it scrappy, but I'd call it like a playoff atmosphere type of game -- two good teams going head-to-head and enjoying the game of basketball and playing hard," Grant said.

Indiana's Jalen Rose failed to convert a layup with 44 seconds left and, after Nick Anderson missed a runner with three seconds to play, the Pacers had a last chance to tie. But Miller's desperation 3-pointer from well beyond the arc was short as Orlando held on.

"We were very fortunate," said Magic coach Chuck Daly. "That's a great basketball team in the way they play hard three nights in a row and play that hard in overtime. You know how good they are."

Hardaway finished with 23 points, a career-high 13 rebounds and five assists despite playing with a bruised left hamstring suffered in Wednesday's loss at Boston. He was held scoreless in that contest for the first time since April 19, 1997.

Anderson netted 21 points and Darrell Armstrong added 14, including 12 in the fourth quarter on three 3-pointers, for the Magic, who moved one game ahead of second-place New York in the Atlantic Division.

"I thought Darrell gave us a real spark in the second half," added Daly. "We were struggling for any kind of made shot and he came up with a couple of 3s, as he usually does. Big shots."

Rose had a season-high 20 points and eight rebounds and Davis added a season-high 17 points for the Pacers, who had a five-game winning streak snapped.

"I thought Jalen Rose was playing pretty well and Chris (Mullin) was not hitting the shots, he had some good looks," Pacers coach Larry Bird said. "Jalen was hitting his. When you are down, that's who you go with."

Mullin was held to nine points in 19 minutes, while Rose played 34 minutes off the bench, had eight rebounds and went 7-of-8 from the foul line.

Indiana took a 69-67 lead into the fourth quarter and pushed its advantage to 74-69 on Rose's jumper. He scored the first five points of the quarter for the Pacers, but Armstrong hit back-to-back 3-pointers and rookie Matt Harpring added a jumper to complete an 8-0 run and give the Magic a 77-74 advantage.

The teams traded baskets before Grant hit a jumper from the left corner and Hardaway nailed another to make it 82-78 with 6:47 to play. After a jumper by Smits, Hardaway scored five straight with a layup and 3-pointer to push Orlando's lead to seven points.

Two free throws by Armstrong with 24 seconds remaining gave Orlando a 94-89 advantage, but Sam Perkins got the Pacers back into it by drilling a 3-pointer from the right wing with 15.7 seconds left.

"They are the frontrunners of the conference right now," Perkins said. "With so many games left and back-to-backs, it is still wide-open. We have to maintain a level of consistency. We need to win and play on the road."

Harpring scored 13 points off the bench and Isaac Austin had 12 and 10 rebounds for the Magic, who shot just 40 percent (38-of-95) but held a dominating 57-37 advantage on the boards.

Miller netted 15 points on 6-of-15 shooting and Davis had 11 rebounds for Indiana, which connected on 46 percent (38-of-83) of its field goals and was 9-of-28 from beyond the arc.

The Magic were 5-of-14 from 3-point range and connected on 22-of-29 free throws.
