Game Story

SEATTLE (Ticker) -- The Indiana Pacers showed that shooting form does not necessarily matter as long as the ball goes through the net. Ron Artest made a running 3-pointer with one second left in regulation to send the game to overtime, and Jamaal Tinsley banked in a 3-pointer late in the extra session to give the Pacers a 114-111 victory over the Seattle SuperSonics. "This was a tough one," Seattle guard Brent Barry said. "They hit two tough shots and they sneak out of our building with a win." Neither Artest's shot nor Tinsley's shot displayed textbook form, but both went in to help the Pacers avoid losing consecutive games for the first time this season. Artest had one leg up in the air and Barry hanging off his left arm on his game-tying shot, while Tinsley's 3-pointer looked like more like he was shoving the ball toward the basket with two hands as he frantically tried to beat the shot clock. Tinsley hit all three of his 3-pointers, with his last one providing a 114-109 lead with 10 seconds left. It was his first appearance since missing back-to-back games with a bruised thigh. Artest's shot spoiled a fantastic performance by SuperSonics guard Gary Payton in the final minutes of regulation. Payton scored a season-high 40 points, including Seattle's final six in regulation on three superb shots. He made a pair of lefthanded drives past Artest for layups to give the Sonics a 100-99 lead, then spun past Al Harrington and floated a shot over Jermaine O'Neal that rolled around the rim before dropping to put Seattle up by three points with 4.4 seconds left. "I don't think he gets enough credit," Pacers coach Isiah Thomas said of Payton. "Believe it or not, he was the focus of our defense. It just goes to show you how great a player he is." Payton's display set up Artest's desperation heave. He drew a foul from Barry on the play but missed the free throw, setting up overtime. "You're supposed to finish a play," Artest said. "That's what they always say. I didn't finish it." Artest atoned for his mistake early in overtime. After Jermaine O'Neal put Indiana up, 104-102, with a turnaround jumper on the baseline, Artest hit an acrobatic shot as he leaned away from the basket on the left wing. Still, Payton was not done. He handed out the last of his 10 assists when he drove along the baseline and found Vladimir Radmanovic in the corner for a jump shot that tied the game at 109-109. But O'Neal put Indiana back up for good with a shot from low on the right block for his season-high 30th point. Tinsley's 3-pointer iced the game. Seattle opened the game with an 11-0 run as Predrag Drobnjak scored nine of his season-high 18 points. The Sonics led by as many as 14 points in the first half before the Pacers got back within 52-50 at halftime. "This is a loss," Seattle coach Nate McMillan said. "One or two possessions can cost you a ballgame and we didn't play for a full 48 minutes and we end up losing the game." The Sonics have lost seven of their last nine games, with the only two wins coming on last-second 3-pointers by Barry.
