Game Story

INDIANAPOLIS (Ticker) -- Dale Davis had a successful homecoming and Steve Smith made sure Davis took a win back to Portland with him.

Davis had 16 points and 10 rebounds in his return to Conseco Fieldhouse and Smith scored 14 of his 22 points in the fourth quarter, when the Portland Trail Blazers held off a late rally for a 92-82 victory over the Indiana Pacers.

Davis, who spent his first nine seasons in Indiana before being sent to the Pacers in the deal for forward Jermaine O'Neal, had 10 points on 4-of-5 shooting in the first half as Portland built a 47-33 advantage.

"It definitely was a good feeling," Davis said. "It was good to come back, see the guys, see some of the fans and just come out with a victory and just have some fun. It was a very enjoyable evening for me."

But the Pacers closed to 69-65 on Austin Croshere's dunk with 7:20 to play. Smith answered with a high-arcing 10-footer in the lane and a 14-footer on the ensuing trip that sparked a 9-0 run. He added a 17-footer during the burst, which gave Portland a 78-65 lead with 4:35 left.

"Smith helped us and hit some tremendous shots," Blazers coach Mike Dunleavy said. "He helped with the pick-and-roll and knocked down some important shots."

Smith made 6-of-7 shots in the final 12 minutes and Rasheed Wallace also scored 22 points for Portland, which improved to 2-1 on its four-game road trip.

"It felt good," Smith said. "I hit some shots, guys were setting some picks and looking for me. They came back in the fourth quarter but I think we're a pretty good team. We gutted it out and got us a win."

The Blazers were without forward Scottie Pippen, who went on the injured list on Thursday with right elbow tendinitis.

Croshere had 23 points and 10 boards for the Pacers, who had a four-game winning streak snapped.

"The team that showed up in the first half, I hadn't seen," Indiana coach Isiah Thomas said. "We just came out with no energy, no focus, no aggression. I have no answer for why we came out that way. I'm puzzled by it."

O'Neal finished with 10 points and 11 rebounds against his former team and Reggie Miller scored 18 points for Indiana, which outscored Portland, 23-12, in the third quarter to pull within 59-56.

"I was not nervous but I did want to play well," O'Neal said. "But we all did not get the job done."

Smith began the fourth quarter by converting a three-point play and Wallace followed with a six-footer, drawing a foul from Croshere and nailing the ensuing free throw to make it 65-56 with 10:27 left.

Croshere answered with a 20-footer and added a free throw before Smith continued his torrid shooting with an 18-footer and another basket, extending the margin to 69-59.

But Al Harrington hit a free throw, Miller connected from 25 feet and Croshere dunked, again forcing Smith to go to work. Indiana native Bonzi Wells, who took Smith's starting spot earlier this month, had a rough night, managing just six points on 1-of-4 shooting in 27 minutes.

"You know, I had three fouls early," Wells said. "But it's all about team wins. I don't really care how I played. It's always good to get a win. Being at home made it special for me. This is my first time winning in Indianapolis."

The Blazers had not won here since November 17, 1996, dropping their previous three visits. Wells scored a career-high 27 points against Indiana at the Rose Garden on January 3.

Damon Stoudamire scored 16 points for Portland, which shot 47 percent (37-of-78) and yielded just eight points off turnovers.

Travis Best scored 14 points off the bench for the Pacers, who shot 36 percent (31-of-80) and held a 47-38 rebounding advantage.

Davis appeared quite comfortable with the shooting background in the first half. He scored on a follow shot during an opening 8-0 run, hit an 11-footer from the right side and dunked as Indiana opened a 23-11 cushion with 2:39 left in the first quarter.

"I think Dale set the tone for us, rebounding, blocking shots and scoring," Smith said. "He was pumped up about coming back home and I think he really set the tone for us and we followed his lead."

The Blazers never trailed and improved to 16-9 on the road.
