Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- After squandering an 18-point fourth-quarter lead and a 10-point advantage in the final two minutes, the struggling Golden State Warriors finally caught a break.

Chris Mills' jumper after a wild scramble under the basket with 22 seconds to play salvaged what appeared to be a lost cause, lifting the Warriors to a heartstopping 99-95 victory over the Indiana Pacers.

Up 88-70 after Mookie Blaylock's 3-pointer with 10:52 to play and leading 95-85 with 2:27 left on Bobby Sura's eight-footer, the Warriors appeared to be moments away from erasing Wednesday's embarrasing 111-91 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers.

But Travis Best hit a free throw, Reggie Miller drilled a 3-pointer, Jalen Rose made two from the line, Jeff Foster had a follow shot and Miller's layup forged a 95-95 tie with 43 seconds left.

Golden State coach Dave Cowens called a timeout while the crowd of 13,149 at Oakland Coliseum sat in stunned silence, except for a smattering of boos.

Things looked even worse when Sura seemed on the verge of turning over the ball for the third time in less than a minute on the Warriors' next trip. But the 6-5 guard managed to outfight a pair of defenders for the ball, passing it from the floor to Larry Hughes. Hughes turned and found Mills at the free-throw line for the winning jumper.

"That's what you strive for in +kgame," Mills said. "You love having the opportunity, trying to win the game for your team. You end up the hero or sometimes you end up the zero. You gotta take that opportunity and I love being in that situation."

"We knew we'd get the last shot with 42 seconds left, but Travis made a great play, stripped it," Sura said. "I just knew I had to get it back and I dove, saw Larry there, got it back to him and Chris hits another big shot."

Hughes, who finished with a season-high 29 points, hit a pair of free throws with eight seconds left to seal the win and Golden State's first season sweep of Indiana since 1992-93.

Indiana dropped to 0-6 against Western Conference opponents this season.

Jermaine O'Neal had 18 points and 13 rebounds, Miller scored 17 points and Best added 14 off the bench for the Pacers, who shot 42 percent (38-of-90) and held a 54-43 advantage on the boards.

Rose scored 13 points and Austin Croshere added 12 for Indiana, which did not match Golden State's energy from the start, falling behind 31-23 after one period.

"We didn't come out with any energy, any fire," Indiana coach Isiah Thomas said. "Maybe in that starting lineup we have too many offensive players who think about scoring rather than defending, but at the end of the day we have to defend and stop people. We can score and get shots, but I was very disappointed with our defensive effort at the start of the game."

Mills finished with 19 points, Sura 18 and Antawn Jamison added 11 and 11 rebounds for the Warriors, who shot 47 percent (36-of-76) and allowed just 13 points off giveaways.

After a slow start, the Pacers came roaring back in the second quarter. Croshere forged a 43-43 tie when he hit a jumper with 4:38 left in the first half and O'Neal followed with a slam and two free throws to put the Pacers in front by four points.

But Sura made a jumper and fed Hughes for a slam to make it 47-47 with 2:35 to go. Sura and Rose exchanged 3-pointers right before intermission, sending the teams to the break knotted at 55-55.

Hughes scored 12 points in the third quarter as the Warriors again took command. He slammed, made two free throws, knocked down a four-footer from the left side and dunked again as Golden State ran back out to a 77-62 cushion with 5:17 remaining in the period.

"If you look at the first and third quarters, they really killed us," Miller said. "We did a good job getting back into the game in the second. We started the third like the first. You can't give teams head starts or jump starts or leads because teams are too good."

The Warriors have won two of their last three ga[Y. ¹‘are 4-4 since a dismal 1-7 start.
