Game Story

INDIANAPOLIS (Ticker) -- The Indiana Pacers have not won since Stephen Jackson returned from suspension. His mindless play in this one kept it that way. Jalen Rose took advantage of a poor play by Jackson to sink two free throws with four-tenths of a second to go as the Toronto Raptors posted a 98-97 triumph over the Pacers, who have lost six straight games. Known for his fiery personality, Jackson was suspended for 30 games for his role in the brawl at Detroit on November 19. Since his return on January 26, the Pacers are 0-5. In this one, Jackson's foul as the clock ticked down spoiled an otherwise gritty effort by his teammates - especially Jeff Foster - who got it done down the stretch without All-Star Jermaine O'Neal, who fouled out. Foster, a career 61 percent free-throw shooter, made two from the line with 1.9 seconds left to put Indiana ahead, 97-96. The Raptors called timeout, then ran a play for Rose, who curled around the top of the key and leaned into Jackson, who could not move his feet quick enough and bumped into his opponent. Rose sank both free throws to lift Toronto (19-27) to just its fourth road win in 24 games this season. Without any timeouts, Indiana had to attempt a long inbounds pass that was deflected away as time expired. "Jalen, being a veteran, was smart," Toronto coach Sam Mitchell said. "That is why I wanted him to get the ball. It was an obvious call. The league said they were going to make those calls in those situations, regardless of the time on the clock." "I'm just glad that my team and my coaching staff have a lot of confidence in me to call that play," Rose said. "Fortunately for me, I was able to draw a foul and make the free throws. ... I saw Stephen Jackson out of control a little bit, so I used my advantage to go to the line." Jackson was curt and testy after the game. He berated the media for asking about the team's recent woes and the call at the end of the game. "Why do you ask those dumb questions? Are you trying to get me fined? Don't you think we've been fined enough?" Jackson said. "No more questions about calls, and that goes for all of you." Rose, a former Pacer, scored 22 points. Toronto's Chris Bosh had 25 and 15 rebounds, including a career-high nine of the offensive end. "Our guys competed, that was all we wanted them to do," Mitchell added. "This was a big win for us, one that we needed." Toronto snapped a five-game losing streak to Indiana and won here for the first time since December 19, 2001. "This is very big, we needed it so bad," Bosh said. "It's been tough to smile after games lately; but tonight is a double positive - it is a win and it's on the road." Jackson was just 5-of-17 from the field and is shooting 36 percent (28-of-77) since his return. Foster had 16 points and 12 rebounds off the bench for the Pacers (20-24), who have lost six straight overall and five in a row at Conseco Fieldhouse. Indiana led by as many as 19 points in the third quarter but dropped its fifth straight home game. "It is a disappointing loss, there is not much else I can say," Indiana coach Rick Carlisle said. "That really hurt," Pacers guard Reggie Miller said. "We are not playing big right now and until we do, and play a 48-minute game, it is going to be tough. We opened the door and they came in."
