Game Story

INDIANAPOLIS (Ticker) -- The Indiana Pacers are adapting just fine to their new home.

Jalen Rose scored 25 points and the Pacers used a long-range barrage early in the fourth quarter to take control and roll to their 11th straight victory at home, 117-102 over the Washington Wizards.

In their first season at Conseco Fieldhouse, the Pacers have won 14 of their 16 home contests and have the second-best home mark in the league, trailing only the Los Angeles Lakers (18-2).

The Pacers held an 80-73 lead entering the final period before restorting to their long-range tactics.

After Austin Croshere opened the quarter with a layup, the Pacers connected on four consecutive 3-pointers to assume a 95-78 advantage with 9:07 to play. Included in that burst was a four-point play by Sam Perkins.

Indiana, which came into the contest ranked fourth in the NBA in 3-point percentage, connected on 9-of-18 shots from beyond the arc.

Rik Smits added 19 points and Croshere had 15 and 10 rebounds for the Pacers, who beat the Wizards for the ninth straight time, including the second time in as many tries this season.

"It was very important to get back on track tonight," Smits said. "We don't have time to sit back at each other and say `What's wrong?' We must adjust as individuals and as a team. A good team does this and we are a good team."

Juwan Howard collected 23 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists for Washington, which could not build on Tuesday's impressive 117-89 dismantling of Toronto.

Rose, who connected on 11-of-16 shots, made a layup with 6:28 left in the third quarter that put the Pacers ahead for good, 65-63. Smits hit a short jumper, Reggie Miller nailed a 3-pointer and Rose had another layup for a nine-point bulge.

Pacers point guard Mark Jackson more than did his part in the third quarter, handing out 10 of his 13 assists. Jackson has double-digit assists in eight of his last 11 games and 10 times this season.

"We stopped them with good `D' in the third quarter," Jackson said. "We got good looks and began to knock them down. We came off losing two games that we should have won. We can't dwell on that."

Following Croshere's layup to start the fourth that provided an 82-73 lead, Perkins and Miller drained consecutive 3-pointers before Wizards rookie Richard Hamilton made a short jumper.

Perkins drilled a 3-pointer and was fouled by Isaac Austin. He completed the four-point play to push the lead to 92-77 with 10:09 left. After Austin hit 1-of-2 free throws, Croshere sank a 3-pointer for a 17-point bulge with 9:07 to play. Indiana led by as many as 21 points in the final minutes.

"We played a good first 2 1/2 quarters, but we just ran out of gas," Washington coach Gar Heard said. "Once this team (the Pacers) gets going they are very hard to stop. They run to the 3-point line, and hit 3 after 3. We tried to help too long, and left people like Sam Perkins open."

The game was delayed for over seven minutes in the fourth quarter to repair a backboard that was slightly tilted after Croshere attempted a dunk with 5:25 remaining.

Miller added 17 points for the Pacers, who shot 49 percent (43-of-87) while holding the Wizards to 44 percent (40-of-91). Indiana also forced Washington into 19 turnovers that it converted into 20 points.

Led by Howard and Jahidi White, who also had 11 rebounds, the Wizards did manage a commanding 55-38 advantage on the boards.

Howard scored 13 points and Aaron Williams had 10 of his 16 in the first half as the Wizards were within 55-52 at the break.
