Game Story

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Ticker) -- Not even an amazing 20-point fourth quarter by Vancouver's Shareef Abdur-Rahim could lift the Grizzlies to their first win over the Indiana Pacers.

Abdur-Rahim scored all his team's points in the fourth quarter but the Grizzlies tied an NBA record by going scoreless in overtime as the Pacers defeated Vancouver for the 10th straight time, 86-76.

Averaging 20.7 points, Abdur-Rahim was nearly invisible through the first three quarters, scoring only eight points. But he played like a man possessed in the fourth period, making shots from the inside and outside.

"I felt with the ball in my hands, I could make something happen but I don't really keep up with stats," said Abdur-Rahim, who was noticably downcast in the locker room. "We've got to be more consistent, at times were like Jekyll and Hyde."

"(Shareef's) something special," assessed Pacers coach Isiah Thomas. "We knew it when he was coming out of college and he's proven it in the pros. What's even more special is his work ethic. He puts time into his craft and he's a nice young man. You guys are fortunate to have him here. We stoppped him in the first half but he figured out what we were doing, as great players do."

The talented 6-9 forward forced overtime on a long 3-pointerCW21 seconds left in regulation but looked spent in the extra session when Vancouver failed to score, matching the NBA record established by seven other teams.

The Los Angeles Clippers were the last team to be held without a point in overtime against the Chicago Bulls on November 21, 1997.

Rookie Stromile Swift was the last Vancouver player other than Abdur-Rahim to score when he dunked with 1:37 left in the third quarter.

The Pacers scored 10 unanswered points in overtime, with Jalen Rose and Reggie Miller providing four apiece.

Rose collected 28 points, eight rebounds and six assists for the Pacers, who notched their first victory against a Western Conference opponent in seven tries this season.

The Pacers had lost six of seven and had allowed an average of 108.8 points over their previous four defeats but yielded their second lowest total of the season tonight.

"We were a team today desperately in need of a victory," Rose said. "I just think our experience was able to pull us through. Anytime we get into overtime, we know what it takes."

"We made a conscious effort to go out and defend tonight and when we defend we're a good basketball team," Thomas said. "We can play with anybody in this league and beat a lot of teams when we make an effort to defend."

The Pacers took advantage of a slow start by Vancouver and shot 59 percent (13-of-22) in the first quarter to take a 29-21 lead after 12 minutes.

The Grizzlies' starting five was unable to muster anything on the offensive end in the first half but the reserves picked up the slack, scoring 22 points as Vancouver trailed 45-34 at intermission.

Vancouver opened the third quarter with a 10-0 run to draw within a point with 8:04 remaining. But after the teams traded baskets, Rose and Miller drained 3-pointers during a 10-2 spurt that gave Indiana a 57-48 advantage at the 3:44 mark.

Abdur-Rahim scored the last bucket of the third period as Vancouver trailed 61-56 and dominated the final session, coming within two points of the franchise record for points in a quarter set by Greg Anthony against Boston on January 15, 1998.

"Shareef's a fantastic player, I've watched a lot of their games on TV, I wasn't surprised," Miller said. "I'm happy for our team that we didn't panic down the stretch. We could have folded when they tied it but hopefully the team cam mature a little bit off a win like this."

Miller scored 20 points for Indiana, which shot 45 percent (37-of-82) from the field and hit all nine of its free throws.

Othella Harrington had 11 points and Mike Bibby added eight and 12 assist.2ɁVancouver, which shot 35 percent (31-of-88) and hit 12-of-13 from the line.

"That was just a poor effort by our ballclub as a whole," Grizzlies coach Sidney Lowe said. "This team (Pacers), they're aggressive, they're experienced and they're smart and we didn't take on that challenge as a team. We had some guys that did and some guys that didn't."
