Game Story

INDIANAPOLIS (Ticker) -- Jalen Rose scored 16 points to lead a balanced attack as the Indiana Pacers took advantage of another slow start by the reeling Washington Wizards for a 105-83 victory.

Reggie Miller and Austin Croshere added 15 points apiece for the Pacers, who had seven players in double figures and trailed twice for just 39 seconds before taking control in the opening minutes. Indiana improved to 3-0 at the new Conseco Fieldhouse.

"I think we played pretty well," said Pacers coach Larry Bird, whose club had a season-low 11 turnovers. "The first half we were running and pushing the ball up the court."

The slide continued for the Wizards. They have lost six in a row since opening night, 14 straight on the road dating to last season and eight in a row to the Pacers. Their 1-6 start is their worst since the 1966-67 season.

Washington trailed 23-15 after one quarter and never recovered. In their last four games, the Wizards have been outscored 122-74 in the opening period.

"I think we put a lot of pressure on them early and took control of the game and almost never looked back," Pacers forward Dale Davis said. "We knew Miami took advantage of Washington with a fast start (on Friday)."

Washington's starters again were awful, combining for just 30 points. Unheralded forward Gerard King made the most of his minutes with career highs of 20 points and 16 rebounds.

"I'm looking for answers," Wizards first-year coach Gar Heard said. "We are going to have to make some changes and it's going to come with our starters.

"Look for changes the next game. ... We need our best five on the floor at the beginning of the game and I'm not sure we have that right now. I thought the bench gave us energy and they played hard. Maybe we should start some of the bench."

Miller scored 10 points in the first quarter, when Washington shot 26 percent (7-of-27) from the field. Al Harrington scored 10 points in the second period, which Mark Jackson capped with a 3-pointer, giving Indiana a 54-41 advantage.

Jackson stayed hot in the third quarter, scoring seven points in a 13-0 burst that gave the Pacers their largest lead at 80-50 with 2:16 left. The Wizards again managed just 15 points in the period.

King and rookie Laron Profit helped Washington cut the deficit to 14 points midway through the fourth quarter. Croshere and Sam Perkins made 3-pointers to restore Indiana's 20-point lead.

"There's a lot of games left, we can't keep saying the same things over and over," said King, a member of the NBA champion San Antonio Spurs last season. "We've got to get a win."

Harrington and Davis scored 13 points each and Jackson and Rik Smits added 10 apiece for the Pacers, who shot 46 percent (38-of-83) and held the Wizards to 37 percent (34-of-92).

Washington guard Mitch Richmond, who never has averaged less than 19.7 points per game in his 11-year career, was held to six points, failing to reach double figures for the second straight game. Richmond is nursing a sore left knee.

"When things go bad, they go bad," Richmond said. "We have to stop feeling sorry for ourselves and we need to go out and play hard."
