Game Story

INDIANAPOLIS (Ticker) -- A visit from the league's worst road team was all the Indiana Pacers needed to get back on track. The Pacers shot just under 62 percent from the field, rolling to a 140-89 victory over the Chicago Bulls, who dropped to 3-35 on the road in the most lopsided game in the NBA this season. Indiana made 52-of-84 shots, recording its highest point total. The Pacers scored 39 points in the first quarter, 35 in the second, 31 in the third and 35 in the fourth. The Pacers snapped a two-game losing streak and won for just the fifth time in their last 20 games. "I thought our team played really well in terms of sharing the basketball," Indiana coach Isiah Thomas. "The thing I thought was most impressive in a blowout was we continued to play the right way." Brad Miller scored 22 points and Al Harrington added 19 to lead seven players in double figures for the Pacers, who were in control virtually from the start. Indiana led 39-28 after one quarter, 74-46 at halftime and 105-68 after three periods. Tim Hardaway recorded 14 points and seven assists in his first game for the Pacers since signing a contract for the remainder of the season on Thursday. "I can shoot the ball," said Hardaway, a five-time All-Star who last played in the NBA during the 2001-02 season with Dallas and Denver. "I'm not worried about my scoring. I was more worried about bringing the ball up, making the right plays, getting us into the offense." "I don't plan on expecting this (from Hardaway) every night," Thomas said of his fellow Chicago native. "He had 14 points, seven assists and four rebounds, three steals and eight deflections. He's a gym rat. When he's 50, he'll be in a gym playing." Eddy Curry scored 18 points for the Bulls, who suffered their 10th straight loss in Indiana and their eight straight road defeat. Chicago is the only Eastern Conference team that has not won a game at Canseco Fieldhouse. The 51-point defeat fell just two shy of the worst setback in Bulls history, a 127-74 drubbing at Minnesota on November 8, 2001. Chicago was coming off an 82-74 win over Miami, its fourth straight home victory. The Bulls are 23-12 at the United Center this season. "This was our worst effort," Chicago coach Bill Cartwright said. "It's very disappointing. It doesn't reflect our team, but it does reflect our effort on the road. We are going to need to identify why we have this Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde act." The Pacers shot 64 percent (28-of-43) in the first half, including 73 percent (16-of-22) in the first period. They also held a whopping 59-27 edge on the boards, with three players reaching double figures. Jermaine O'Neal had 11 and Miller and Jeff Foster 10 apiece. The Pacers posted their second-most lopsided win since joining the NBA. Their largest margin of victory came in a 124-59 whipping of the Portland Trail Blazers at Market Square Arena on February 27, 1998. "We shared the ball tonight and really played as a unit," Foster said. "Everybody got involved and contributed and that is what we will have to do in the future." The Bulls closed to 30-25 on Curry's two foul shots with 2:06 left in the first quarter, but Indiana broke it open with a 27-8 spurt, taking a 57-33 lead on Jonathan Bender's two free throws with 6:31 to play in the first half. "Tonight's performance represents a total embarrassment," Bulls guard Jalen Rose said. "Our play on the road is almost like a basketball travesty. Yeah, we're learning and our learning curve is growing, but people have to understand that improvement is not based on what's on a stat sheet. It's based on your performance on the court, especially on the road." The Pacers reached the century mark on Miller's jumper with 2:29 left in the third quarter. The final score represented Indiana's biggest lead. "We came out strong and coach told us that this was what we had to do, not only for one quarter, but for four quarters," Bender said. "I think this stayed with us tonight." Rose and Jamal Crawford added 14 and 12 points, respectively, for the Bulls, who shot 41 percent (36-of-88).
