Game Story

INDIANAPOLIS (Ticker) -- Ron Artest's "prayer" saved the Indiana Pacers. Artest flipped in an off-balance jumper while falling out of bounds with 16 seconds left in overtime as the Pacers survived a fourth-quarter collapse and posted a 103-100 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks. "I was trying to dunk, but he (Milwaukee's Ray Allen) was holding my arm," Artest said. "The foul was owed to me. That shot going in was just basic strength." "We've been talking about him every time we come in here after the game," Pacers coach Isiah Thomas said of Artest. "He never ceases to amaze me. After the end of the game, his concentration was really up at the offensive end." Artest scored Indiana's final five points, finished with 22 and was one of six players in double figures for the Pacers (7-1), who posted their sixth straight victory and continued the best start in franchise history. Indiana also completed a sweep of its four-game homestand, despite squandering a 20-point lead in the fourth quarter. "Being down 20 in the fourth quarter, it would have been a great win for us," Allen said. "We just did not make shots early in the game. Artest played good defense, but it was more us just not hitting. In the fourth quarter, we got some momentum, but our defense killed us down the stretch." The Pacers continue to win despite the absence of Reggie Miller and Austin Croshere, who are on the injured list. After Allen hit a jumper in the lane over Artest to give the Bucks a 100-99 lead with 31 seconds left in overtime, Indiana went to Artest in the low post. Artest was hit by Allen as he spun to his left and lost his balance, but he still was able to get off an eight-footer with his left hand. He also made the foul shot to complete a three-point play and give the Pacers a two-point lead. On the ensuing possession, Sam Cassell came up short on a 20-footer from the right wing with two seconds left. Jonathan Bender grabbed the rebound and made 1-of-2 from the line with 0.2 seconds remaining to account for the final margin. "It was a gutty win," Thomas said. "After our guys got hit with such a haymaker that Milwaukee threw, we got the cobwebs out and won the game in overtime." Jermaine O'Neal led the Pacers with 23 points, while Bender and Al Harrington added 13 apiece. Indiana appeared in control after Artest's driving layup made it 82-62 in the opening minute of the fourth quarter. But the Bucks roared back and forced overtime at 92-92 on Allen's dunk with 0.7 seconds to go. Allen finished with 24 points and Cassell contributed 20 for the Bucks, who had won four of their previous five games. "We made a run and maybe we were just out of gas at the end," Milwaukee coach George Karl said. "We spent a lot of energy, but we've got a lot of pride still." The Pacers endured a fourth-quarter scoring drought of more than five minutes and made just one basket in the final 8:39 of regulation. Overall, Indiana was 5-of-17 from the field in the fourth period, scoring just 12 points. "I really wouldn't say that we had a letdown because Milwaukee is such a great team," O'Neal said. "We knew at some point they were going to make a run because they've got so many good shooters." Artest also was beaten on Allen's tying basket, overplaying the inbounds pass. That gave Allen an opening to the basket and he dunked over O'Neal. But Artest made amends, scoring seven points in overtime. He and O'Neal dunked on consecutive possessions, giving the Pacers a 96-92 lead with 3:34 to play. Indiana missed its next six shots, allowing the Bucks to grab a 98-97 lead on Cassell's fallaway jumper with 52 seconds remaining. It was Milwaukee's first lead since the opening basket of the game. "It wasn't anything the Pacers didn't do, it's what we did," Cassell said of the comeback. "Our defensive intensity picked up in the fourth quarter and we were able to get a lot of easy baskets to get us back in the game." Artest converted a pair from the line to give the Pacers a 99-98 edge with 37 seconds to play. Michael Redd contributed 18 points for the Bucks and fueled Milwaukee's comeback with eight points in the fourth quarter. Redd's two foul shots pulled the Bucks with 92-90 with 1:13 to play. Allen missed a 3-pointer with 29 seconds to go, but the Pacers were called for a 24-second violation, giving the Bucks another chance to tie. Ron Mercer chipped in 11 points and Brad Miller added 10 for Indiana.
