Game Story

INDIANAPOLIS (Ticker) -- The Indiana Pacers got so caught up in Reggie Miller's last game that they almost got stuck with a tougher first-round postseason opponent. Anthony Johnson made consecutive jumpers down the stretch as the Pacers scrambled for an 85-83 victory over the Chicago Bulls that secured sixth place in the Eastern Conference. Despite facing a banged-up Chicago team resting most of its regulars, Indiana (44-38) had to erase a 14-point second-quarter deficit and recover after blowing a nine-point fourth-quarter lead to snap a three-game slide. "Tonight was definitely an emotional game," Johnson said. "With it being on national TV and us needing a big win, we didn't come out with the energy we needed, but we were able to hit the shots down the stretch. It made me feel good to send Reggie out on a good note." By finishing sixth, the Pacers draw Boston in the first round. Had they lost, they would have fallen to seventh and met defending NBA champion Detroit, which now faces Philadelphia. The 39-year-old Miller, who is retiring after this season, was honored with a video montage before the game and a ceremony afterward. During timeouts, video clips of individuals remembering Miller were shown, including one from former President Bill Clinton. Michael Jordan, Larry Brown and several current players also gave their best wishes on the video screen. Everyone from Pacers owners Herb and Mel Simon to former teammate and close friend Mark Jackson took turns honoring the five-time All-Star. Miller became emotional when talking about his sister Cheryl Miller, whom he called "the greatest female basketball player ever" and thanked for "inspiring me with your greatness." "The first time I ran down the tunnel at Market Square Arena, I knew I was home," Miller said. "Thanks for opening your hearts to me. For 18 years, I've been blessed to be a Pacer and a Hoosier." The emotional evening knocked Miller off his game. He made just 3-of-13 shots and was hit with a technical foul in the third quarter. He collected 12 points, seven rebounds and four assists. "I was focused so much on this night, I'm really glad it's over," a drained Miller said. "Now we can focus and get ready for the playoffs and get on with it." Miller had a basket and two free throws to start an 11-0 run at the outset of the fourth quarter that gave Indiana a 71-64 lead. Already assured of fourth place in the East, Chicago put together a 10-0 spurt and took a 77-76 lead with 2:13 left on a layup by Lawrence Funderburke, who scored nine points despite being signed two days ago. Stephen Jackson and Jannero Pargo traded baskets before Johnson sank a 14-footer and 3-pointer on consecutive possessions, giving Indiana an 83-79 lead with 50 seconds to go. After Chicago's Eric Piatkowski made two free throws, Miller nearly committed a turnover and missed a 3-pointer. But the Pacers corralled the rebound and Jackson made two free throws for an 85-81 lead with 3.8 seconds left. Rookie Jared Reiner sank a jumper to halve the deficit and Piatkowski slapped away an inbounds pass intended for Miller. The ball bounced to Pargo, who missed a potential tying jumper at the buzzer. "I'm proud of the effort we gave tonight," Chicago coach Scott Skiles said. "The only thing I had a problem with was the way we came out in the third." Jermaine O'Neal scored 21 points and Johnson added 20 for the Pacers, who got just six points from their bench. Pargo scored a season-high 17 points for the Bulls (47-35), who are in the playoffs for the first time in seven years and face Washington in the first round. "We feel as though we are prepared for the playoffs," Chicago guard Chris Duhon said. "We have a lot of confidence in our team, 1-12. As you saw tonight, we feel like we can compete with anyone."
