Game Story

INDIANAPOLIS (Ticker) -- No one pushes around the Indiana Pacers at Conseco Fieldhouse.

Mark Jackson recorded Indiana's first triple-double of the season as the Pacers matched a franchise record with their 17th consecutive home win, a physical 104-94 triumph over the Sacramento Kings.

Indiana endured a broken nose to All-Star Dale Davis and a shoving match between star guard Reggie Miller and Kings center Vlade Divac to improve the Eastern Conference's best record to 30-15, tying the team's best-ever 45-game start.

Shortly after the theatrics by Divac, the Pacers embarked on a pivotal 28-11 run over the final two periods, grabbing a 90-80 lead with 5:42 to play.

Jackson scored four points during a 10-0 burst that started the extended run and finished with 15, 10 rebounds and a season-high 15 assists for his 16th career triple-double.

Chris Webber had 26 points for the high-scoring Kings, who fell to 3-4 on an NBA season-high eight-game road trip and 1-10 when totaling fewer than 100 points.

Jalen Rose scored 22 points for Indiana, which has not lost in its new arena since November 25 -- a 107-99 setback at the hands of the Detroit Pistons. The Pacers also won 17 straight home games from December 5, 1995-February 4, 1996.

Tonight's game turned with 2:02 left in the third quarter, when Divac swatted Miller's layup attempt and body to the floor. Pacers forward Derrick McKey retaliated by shoving Divac, who tried to coax officials by falling to the ground.

"I remember games always being physical against the Pacers," Divac said. "That's good for this team, especially come playoff time."

Jason Williams hit the technical free throw for the Kings, but Miller began the 28-11 run with a pair from the line and Rose and Jackson combined for eight points as the Pacers turned a 69-62 deficit into a 72-69 lead, moments into the final period.

"They are an exciting team with a lot of talent," Rose said. "But they will let you back in the game when you are down. Their style of play dictates this."

Sacramento was able to tie it twice early in the fourth, but Indiana was ahead for the final 9:22, taking the lead for good, 78-75, on Chris Mullin's 3-pointer.

Leading just 78-76, the Pacers got half of Travis Best's 12 points during a 12-4 spurt for a 90-80 advantage with 5:46 remaining.

Kings swingman Predrag Stojakovic followed with a four-point play and Divac added a pair of free throws as the Kings pulled within 90-86. But they were unable to get any closer.

"It was a great game," Kings guard Nick Anderson said. "It was hard-fought by both teams. I have to give my teammates the thumbs up for their effort for 48 minutes."

Miller, who began the game 2-of-14 from the floor and 0-of-5 from 3-point range against Anderson, hit a pair of shots over the final 1:49 to seal the win. His 3-pointer with 1:49 left was his 1,800th, most in NBA history.

"You've got to continue to shoot," said Miller, whose sister Cheryl worked the nationally televised game for TNT. "I knew sooner or later I was going to put the dagger in something.

"I kept looking over there and Cheryl kept telling me to slow down."

Indiana rallied without its All-Star power forward. Davis suffered a broken nose with 96 seconds left in the first half, when he was swiped in the face by Anderson on his own dunk. He still led the team with 13 rebounds.

"In the NBA, no blood, no foul, but I will be ready," said Davis, who expects to miss a game or two. "This is the second time so it is not a new experience getting it fixed."

Sacramento led by as many as eight points three times in the third quarter behind spirited play from Webber, who wrapped two thunderous dunks around a 3-pointer for a 64-56 lead with with 6:04 left in the period.

However, Webber scored just four points in the fourth quarter while being defended by McKey, who played just his second game of the season after recovering from a bruised left leg and had five points and 10 rebounds.

"We always knew he could defend," Bird said. "He played 26 minutes tonight which is a lot for a guy just back. ... It's tough guarding Chris Webber when you haven't played."

The teams played to a relatively even first half. Indiana led 49-48 behind 16 points from Rik Smits and Jackson's 11 assists, 10 of which came in the first quarter.

Smits finished with 18 points in 21 minutes and Miller added 14 for the Pacers, who shot 43 percent from the floor (38-of-88) and outrebounded the Kings, 55-43.

Indiana outscored Sacramento, 28-25, in a battle between two of the league's best benches. The Pacers' reserves have outmatched opposing benches in 35 of 45 games this season.

Divac totaled 17 points and 14 rebounds and Williams added 14 and eight assists for the Kings, who shot just 39 percent (34-of-87) and dropped to 28-17 in the powerful Western Conference.

"We've already beaten them once and we played well against them tonight which shows we can hang with the best teams in the league," Webber said. "I hope we seem them in the playoffs."
