Game Story

INDIANAPOLIS (Ticker) -- Vince Carter and the New Jersey Nets continue to put pressure on the teams above them in the Eastern Conference playoff race. Carter scored 25 of his 39 points in the second half and grabbed 11 rebounds as the Nets posted their fourth straight victory, a 94-85 triumph over the Indiana Pacers in the front end of a home-and-home series. Rookie Nenad Krstic scored 18 points and Jason Kidd added 14, 12 rebounds and seven assists for the Nets (31-36), who began the day two games behind Philadelphia and Orlando for the eighth and final playoff berth in the East and four games behind seventh-place Indiana. "We're not really worried about the eighth spot, we're worried about taking care of our own business," Kidd said. "Now we have to go back and protect (our) home court. This win means nothing unless we do that." "If you don't believe that you can make the playoffs, then you don't deserve to be in this league," Carter said. "We have to leave everything on the court every night and let the chips fall where they may." The Nets held just a 40-36 lead less than a minute into the second half before opening it up over the next 10 minutes. Carter scored 14 points and made 4-of-6 shots during that stretch, including 3-of-3 from the arc. "We were just trying to put the ball in my hands and let me go to work," said Carter, who made 14-of-25 shots. "We wanted to see how they would play me and how they would react. I was able to get a few buckets inside and out, and I got going early. For me, it's better to drive the lane and draw fouls or kick it out - that helps me get in rhythm." New Jersey held an 83-66 lead after a three-point play by Carter with 6:36 remaining before Indiana pulled within 91-85 on a 3-pointer by Fred Jones with 34 seconds left. But former Pacer Travis Best sank two free throws, Indiana's Stephen Jackson missed a shot and Kidd split a pair from the line to cap the scoring. Jackson scored 21 points and Anthony Johnson added 18 for the Pacers, who visit the Nets on Tuesday. "(Carter) was able to do whatever he wanted to do today," Jackson said. "He's been playing really well lately. He's carried that team." Veteran guard Reggie Miller, who scored 39 points - his most in 4 1/2 seasons - in a win over the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday, had just 13 for the Pacers, who slipped to 6-3 since losing Jermaine O'Neal to a sprained right shoulder. The All-Star forward likely will miss the rest of the regular season. "We wanted to get a nice little home streak going and we let this one get away. We're disappointed," Miller said. "Carter made everything. When we changed defenses, he made adjustments. He shot over double-teams. It was just an outstanding game." The Pacers face a tough stretch in the schedule, with three of the next four on the road and all against teams fighting for a playoff spot. "This week is big for us," Miller said. "We've got teams below us (in the standings) that have a more favorable schedule, so we have to go win. It's going to be tough, but you want March and April to be like this. With every game being critical, it helps get your mind right for the playoffs."
