Game Story

MIAMI (Ticker) -- Ron Artest and the Indiana Pacers seem to be doing just fine. Artest scored 22 points to lead the Pacers to their fifth straight win, an 87-65 rout of the Miami Heat. Jermaine O'Neal also had 22 points and grabbed 11 rebounds for Indiana, which extended its winning streak against Miami to seven games. The Pacers have not lost to the Heat since January 19, 2002. "We made a lot of runs tonight," Artest said. "Every team is going to make a run, the Heat made a run, but we made most of the runs tonight and were able to win the game." No one has beaten Indiana since New Jersey on December 27, when Pacers coach Rick Carlisle benched Artest for "conduct detrimental to winning." Artest was dropped from the starting lineup for the following game after missing a team shootaround, and suggested the Pacers trade him. But a meeting with team executives Larry Bird and Donnie Walsh helped smooth the situation, and Indiana has rolled since. "I think the whole team is taking the approach that defense is first," Artest said. "As long as we keep playing that way, we should be successful." Brian Grant scored 14 points to lead the Heat, who were held to a season low offensively. Miami managed two field goals in the fourth quarter, tying a team record low accomplished most recently on March 11. "We couldn't score in the third and fourth quarters. I don't know why," Grant said. "I don't have answers. We were out there trying ... to run through the offense." Eddie Jones added 12 points and Lamar Odom had 11 and a career-high 18 rebounds for the Heat. Odom struggled from the field, going 3-of-14, as Miami shot 33 percent (25-of-75). The Heat had a season-high point total in their previous game, Friday's 112-101 triumph over Orlando. "Orlando is not Indiana," Grant said. "They are two different teams, two different styles and two different defenses. When you play against Indiana, they are going to be physical and aggressive." Miami hit 11 3-pointers against the Magic but was just 2-of-11 from the arc in this one. The Heat took advantage of fast-break opportunities and built a 20-18 lead with 2:12 left in the first quarter. But Indiana closed the period with a 7-2 run and never looked back. "We have the best record in the East and every team is going to come out and play hard against us," O'Neal said. "We wanted to establish defensively who we are." The contest also provided a matchup of New York City playground legends as Miami point guard Rafer Alston squared off with Indiana counterpart Jamaal Tinsley. Alston had four points on 2-of-10 shooting while Tinsley finished with 10 and three assists.
