Game Story

INDIANAPOLIS (Ticker) -- Jalen Rose's 18-footer with 1:23 to play in overtime gave the Indiana Pacers the lead for the first time and for good as they outlasted the Charlotte Hornets, 115-110, in a vital game for both teams.

Indiana (30-17) stopped a two-game losing streak and moved one-half game ahead of Atlanta for the Central Division lead and the second seed in the Eastern Conference playoff race. The Pacers play at Atlanta on Friday but already have lost the season series to the Hawks.

"We need to enjoy this but have a short celebration," said Pacers guard Mark Jackson. "We have to be prepared for Atlanta. We know they are a very good ballclub. They can give us problems. It makes us feel better to see that we can win close ones and do well in overtime."

Rose, who teamed with Reggie Miller to score Indiana's final 14 points of regulation and erase a 10-point deficit, curled off a screen set by center Rik Smits and hit the jumper to give the Pacers a 109-108 lead.

David Wesley, who finished with 23 points and tormented Pacers counterpart Jackson in the third and fourth quarters, missed a 20-footer and Smits -- 3-of-17 from the field to that point -- drained an 21-footer with 51 seconds left to make it 111-108.

Elden Campbell pulled the Hornets within 111-110 on a pair of free throws with 30 seconds to go. Eddie Jones fouled Jackson with 24 seconds remaining. Jackson made the first and missed the second, but Dale Davis was able to reach over Chucky Brown and corral the rebound.

Davis, a 59.3 percent foul shooter, then sank two huge free throws to push the lead to 114-110. Wesley missed a 3-pointer, and Jackson hit one more foul shot with 10 seconds left to complete the scoring.

"We almost gave this game away, but the bottom line was we won," said Rose. It is a `W.' We must force the games and exploit tdefenses and offenses, also. We did some good things, but we've got to do better."

The Hornets (23-23), who thrust themselves into the playoff picture with a nine-game winning streak from April 7-21, have lost three of their last five games. They are 1 1/2 games behind the New York Knicks for the eighth and final playoff spot in the East but must finish ahead of them after losing the season series.

"We're still not out of this thing, we just have to go back and take care of business," said Hornets coach Paul Silas. "If you make shots you win, if you miss shots you lose. We're still going to hang tough. We didn't come this far to give up."

Despite 11 third-quarter points by Wesley, the Pacers trailed only 80-78 entering the fourth quarter after being down as many as 14 in the first half. But Charlotte rebuilt its lead to 99-89 on three free throws by Jones with 5:41 to go in regulation.

But Miller and Rose combined to hit 5-of-9 shots from the field and three free throws in a 14-4 tear to close regulation. Miller completed a three-point play to make it 101-101 with 62 seconds to play, sinking a 12-footer on the run as he was fouled by Campbell.

Jones countered with a six-footer, but Rose sank two free throws with 27 seconds left to forge a 103-103 tie. The Pacers forced the Hornets into a 24-second violation, but Smits' contested 19-footer right before time expired was well short.

"We were confident in our defense all night long," said Wesley. "We got our hands up and got some stops. Offensively, we got some good looks. We felt confident until the last couple of minutes and then we got some unfortunate calls. Everybody is well disappointed."

Wesley fed Chuck Person for a 3-pointer to start overtime and hit a short jumper after Rose hit one of his own to give the Hornets a 108-105 lead with 3:16 to play. Miller answered with a 10-footer, but neither team scored until Rose's jumper almost two minutes later.

"I thought the last 20 minutes we played very well," said Pacers coach Larry Bird. "The game started off with them beating us off the dribble and we had problems with that. Reggie hit some big shots. Guys made big plays and Dale made big plays in overtime."

The Pacers shot less than 40 percent (39-of-98) from the field but held a 54-47 rebounding edge. Miller had 27 points and a career-high 12 rebounds, while Rose contributed 18 points off the bench.

Miller, Dale Davis and Antonio Davis all had double-doubles, with Dale Davis pulling down 12 points and 12 rebounds and Antonio Davis adding 14 and 10.

Wesley finished with 23 points while Jones and Campbell netted 21 apiece. The Hornets shot 44 percent (39-of-89), including 10-of-22 from beyond the arc.
