Game Story

INDIANAPOLIS (Ticker) -- Maybe all that adversity has toughened up the Indiana Pacers. Reggie Miller scored 18 points as the surging Pacers extended their winning streak to a season-high six games with a 93-83 triumph over the Washington Wizards. After reaching the Eastern Conference finals last season, the Pacers were one of the main contenders entering this season. But any title hopes were all but lost following the November brawl with fans in Detroit that led to a season-ending suspension to Ron Artest and lengthy bans for Jermaine O'Neal and Stephen Jackson. Now O'Neal - Indiana's best player - is out at least until the playoffs with a shoulder injury. Starting point guard Jamaal Tinsley also is sidelined. In his 18th and final season, the 39-year-old Miller has provided veteran leadership for the Pacers (41-34), who tied the Wizards for fifth place in the Eastern Conference. "I think we were in the ninth spot in mid-March, so to be in the fifth spot now is really rewarding," Miller said, "It's always been fun, but when a team shows signs of coming together, after all of the circumstances we've been through this year, this is probably the most fun I've had. We've had make-shift lineups all year. We've found ways to hang around, but now we're finding ways to beat playoff-caliber teams, and that's probably the most rewarding for me." Miller helped the Pacers to their second win over the Wizards in less than a week as he made 6-of-13 shots in 31 minutes. He scored seven points in the the third quarter, when the Pacers turned a tie game into a 67-59 lead entering the final period. Stephen Jackson added 17 points and Anthony Johnson 14 for the Pacers, who shot 41 percent (29-of-70). "Right now, our confidence is sky high," Johnson said. "When we go out there, not only do we expect to win, we expect to dominate and win convincingly." Larry Hughes scored 24 points and Kwame Brown 16 for Washington, which lost its fourth straight game. Wizards point guard Gilbert Arenas was held to 14 points, nearly 12 below his average. He made just 5-of-17 shots. "Teams are playing us physical and we've never had to play that way before," Arenas said. "I guess we don't know how to react. You drive down the lane and you've got two or three guys giving you some. Pollard, Foster, Croshere ... that wears on you after a while." "We lost our composure because it was a physical game," Wizards coach Eddie Jordan said. "We have to understand to get ready for the playoffs and to play in the playoffs, we can't lose it just because it gets physical. We're not getting a whole lot from our bench right now. Bottom line was, we lost our composure and we have to get better at that."
