Game Story

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- Elton Brand and the Los Angeles Clippers had too much in the second half for the Indiana Pacers. Brand scored 19 of his 27 points after halftime as the Clippers rolled to an 88-76 victory over the depleted Pacers. Los Angeles has won five straight games, its longest streak since 1995. "We want to take it one game at a time," Brand said. "Every game is a measuring stick. They are supposed to be one of the elite teams and we just want to see where we are right now. "This is the longest winning streak since 1995 and we are looking to keep it going." Playing without seven players on their roster 6-7 or taller due to suspensions and injuries and dressing just eight overall, the Pacers could not contain Brand. Brand made 12-of-16 shots and keyed a pair of runs in the third quarter, when the Clippers established control. He scored the final six points of an 8-0 push that left Los Angeles with a 48-41 lead. "They were probably out of gas but we didn't bring the intensity we needed," Brand said. "I tried to bring some in the early part of the third quarter and get us excited, get us focused and into the game." The Clippers' power forward was intent on the game, not the opponent. "We can't worry about all that's going on with Indiana," Brand continued. "We poured it on them at their place (102-68 on November 10), so it was a little tough to be mentally sharp tonight. It was ugly but we got the win. That was the most important thing." Brand, who is averaging 27.3 points over his last three games, hit a short jumper midway through the period to lift the Clippers' advantage to 57-46, their largest to that point. Bobby Simmons scored 20 points and Corey Maggette chipped in 17 and nine rebounds for Los Angeles (10-6), which has its best 16-game record since the 1992-93 season. With the win, the Clippers swept the season series from the Pacers for the first time since 1991-92. "Bobby Simmons has been playing great all-around basketball," Los Angeles coach Mike Dunleavy said. "He's really shooting the ball well and rebounding defensively. And I thought it was another great performance by Elton. He had good rhythm tonight." Dunleavy was not as happy with his team's output in the first half and let them now it at halftime. "At halftime I told our guys, 'You're gonna let a lot of good work go to waste here tonight because right now you're playing a one-possession game and one 3-pointer can beat you.' In the second half, we went to Bobby Simmons because they were playing small, and I thought it really helped us to get a little more control of the game. "It wasn't our best performance, but any win is a good win." In addition to the suspensions to Jermaine O'Neal, Ron Artest and Stephen Jackson for their involvement in the brawl at Detroit last month, Indiana was without point guard Jamaal Tinsley (bruised thigh) and forward Austin Croshere (rib injury), who were averaging a combined 38.8 points per game since the brawl. Eddie Gill stepped up with a career-high 21 points and Fred Jones added 19 for the Pacers. Marcus Haislip, who was signed by Indiana earlier in the day, scored eight points and grabbed four rebounds off the bench in his debut with the team. "They play well together," Gill said of the Clippers. "They have some guys who can hit the open shot. We just came up short in various areas. It wasn't for lack of effort." Pacers head coach Rick Carlisle is trying to work some magic into his depleted lineup. "We are making some things up as we go along here since our personnel has changed pretty drastically," Carlisle said. "We have a couple of guys who we literally picked up off the street. We have some challenges but we'll get it together and we'll keep fighting." Indiana center David Harrison had his hands full trying to stop Brand. "He is a really good player," Harrison said. "He played very well. I am a step slow because of my sore foot and he exploited that on picks and pops. And he kept knocking down jump shots. He's really good." Harrison is proud of his team's determination to battle every game. "That's one thing about this team," Harrison said. "We'll keep fighting to the end. We won't lay down for anyone. We're going to play a full 48 minutes and just as hard if it goes to overtime. Just as long as it takes to win." "It's really hard to play with guys you met two days ago. It can't get much worse than this. This is a rough stretch for us and we've got to get through it with a couple of wins."
