Game Story

INDIANAPOLIS (Ticker) -- The New Jersey Nets had found road wins hard to come by lately. They ended up winning in an arena where they had never won.

Stephon Marbury scored 25 points and Johnny Newman and keith Van Horn added 23 each as they led New Jersey's 3-point barrage in a 120-96 rout of the Indiana Pacers.

Marbury and Newman combined for eight of a team record-tying 13 3-pointers as New Jersey snapped an 11-game road losing streak and an eight-game losing streak at Indiana as it earned its first win at Conseco Fieldhouse in four tries.

The Nets had not won on the road since an 84-78 win over Atlanta on January 15. But they jumped to a 29-16 lead after the first quarter and a 92-75 lead after three quarters as they easily avenged an embarrassing 88-64 loss at Indiana on December 5, their lowest point total of the season.

"We're just happy to get a road win because we really have been struggling on the road," Van Horn said. "We played great basketball for 35-40 minutes the last few road games. It feels real good to be able to play a solid 48 minutes vs. a team like the Indiana Pacers."

Reggie Miller scored 24 points and Jalen Rose and Austin Croshere added 17 each as the Pacers suffered their third loss in four games. They continue to fight for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, remaining 1 1/2 games ahead of Boston.

"This was a total disgrace," Rose said. "I'm really disappointed by the way things are going, but there is no excuse. In reality, we can still make some good things happen out of this, but the guys are really going to have to do some soul searching."

Rookie Kenyon Martin scored 12 points in the first quarter and Marbury nine, including a 3-pointer to cap a 10-2 surge at the end of the period to give the Nets a 13-point advantage. The Pacers shot a dismal 26 percent (5-of-19).

"We went out and established ourselves early and sustained it the whole game," said Martin, who finished with 19 points.

The Nets kept on the pressure in the second quarter as they shot 53 percent (10-of-19) and led 61-46 at the half. Martin had 17 points through two quarters, Marbury added 15 and Van Horn 13, including eight in the second quarter.

New Jersey made five 3-pointers in the first half and five more in the third quarter. Marbury's only 3-pointer of the period extended the lead to 75-58 with 5:46 remaining before Indiana went on a 7-0 run to get within 10.

Two free throws by Miller with 3:06 left made it 78-71. But New Jersey responded with a 14-4 run to close out the quarter, capped by a 3-pointer from near half-court by Newman that extended the advantage to 92-75.

"After he (Newman) hit the half-court shot, I felt we couldn't lose the game," New Jersey coach Byron Scott said.

Newman and Marbury made sure the Nets would not be victimized by a fourth-quarter comeback as they drained back-to-back 3-pointers to open the period. The Pacers never got within 18 the rest of the way.

"We executed on offense very well," Van Horn said. "We were able to establish an inside game and that freed up our shooting."

The Nets shot 51 percent (43-of-84), including 13-of-24 from behind the arc. The 13 3-pointers tied a franchise record set against Dallas on November 23, 1996.

Travis Best had 10 points and 11 rebounds and Jeff Foster recorded his first double-double of the season with 11 points and 11 boards. The Pacers shot 41 percent (32-of-78) and forced just seven turnovers.

Aside from Miller and Rose, the rest of the starting lineup of Al Harrington, Jermaine O'Neal and Zan Tabak combined for just seven points.

"Our young players don't understand the energy and intensity we need at this time of year," Indiana coach Isiah Thomas said. "I don't know how long players can keep relying on the crutch of being young. Right now I think we have to lean on our veterans and get as much out of them as we possibly can."
