Game Story

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- Mark Jackson saved his best for last.

Jackson scored eight points in the last 2 1/2 minutes, including a 3-pointer with 5.3 seconds to go that gave the Indiana Pacers a 92-90 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks.

Held to three points and outplayed by Sam Cassell over the first 45 minutes, Jackson made every big play down the stretch. The veteran point guard scored Indiana's last eight points and sealed the win by avoiding a foul attempt in the final seconds.

The Bucks led 90-89 and ran a second defender at Pacers All-Star guard Reggie Miller, forcing him to give up the ball. Jackson wound up with it at the right wing and buried the 25-footer to give Indiana the lead.

"It was just a great job kicking the ball out," Jackson said. "The final 3, the play wasn't for me. We really don't run plays for me. It was just a good job recognizing the double-team and throwing it back out."

"Mark hits big shots," Pacers coach Larry Bird said. "He did a nice job taking over down the stretch. The 3-pointer was huge."

On the next possession, the Pacers double-teamed Bucks All-Star forward Glenn Robinson, who traveled. A fan protested the call by throwing a beverage onto the court.

"I thought there was a lot of contact on the last play," said Robinson. "It was a lack of respect from the ref."

Indiana's Jalen Rose missed a free throw following a dead-ball foul and the Pacers had to inbound with 3.3 seconds left. The ball went to Jackson, who eluded Tim Thomas and threw a high lob pass to teammate Dale Davis that allowed the clock to expire.

Miller scored 23 points and Rose added 20 for the Pacers, who have won two straight road games following a five-game skid away from home. Indiana has won 12 of its last 13 meetings with Milwaukee, including a sweep in the first round of the playoffs last season.

Cassell had 23 points and nine assists and Robinson scored 22 points for the Bucks, who led for just 67 seconds and have dropped four of five overall.

"It came down to the fourth quarter and came down to big plays," Cassell said. "Mark hit the shot and iced it."

A three-point play by Robinson and a lay-in by Ervin Johnson pulled Milwaukee into an 80-80 tie with 4:15 left. Jackson, who missed his first seven shots, gave Indiana an 86-84 lead with a runner with 2:25 remaining.

"No hesitation, there's no time to think," Jackson said of his slow start. "You've just got to step up."

Robinson tied it with a jumper from the post but Jackson buried a 3-pointer for an 89-86 lead with 1:46 to go. Ray Allen made two free throws and Cassell added a layup, giving the Bucks their first lead at 90-89 with 1:12 to play.

Rose and Cassell missed shots on the next two possessions to set up Jackson's heroics. Despite his poor shooting, he played 34 minutes while backup Travis Best played just 14.

"Mark got more minutes than usual because he was doing a better job getting us in our offense," Bird said.

Austin Croshere scored 16 points and Davis added 13 and nine rebounds for the Pacers, who shot 49 percent (30-of-61) from the field and made 26-of-34 free throws. Normally a forward, the 6-9 Davis started at center as 7-4 Rik Smits was a late scratch with a back injury.

Allen scored 18 points, Scott Williams grabbed 11 rebounds and Johnson pulled down 10 for the Bucks, who shot 41 percent (35-of-85) and made 18-of-20 from the line.

"I didn't think we got any respect in the last few minutes," Bucks coach George Karl said. "We didn't get much respect all night. They get like 38 (actually 34) free throws. We probably have to win some playoff games, some playoff series (to get respect)."

Miller scored 10 points and Croshere eight as the Pacers bolted to a 27-19 lead. They led 47-40 at halftime and opened their largest lead at 55-43 on a layup by Davis with 9:11 left in the third quarter. Milwaukee closed to 72-65 entering the final period.
