Indiana Pacers Team Report – November 8

=== Indiana Pacers Team Report – November 8 ===

(Sports Network) – Ron Artest posted the game-winning points with 11.1
seconds remaining on a three-point play and finished with 21 for the second
straight night to lift Indiana over Cleveland, 91-90, Friday at Conseco
Fieldhouse.

Reggie Miller tallied a season-high 15 points and Jermaine O’Neal collected 14
points and 12 rebounds for the Pacers, who improved to 5-1 on the young
season.

After Jeff Foster tied the game at 88-88 via two free throws for the Pacers,
DeSagana Diop gave the Cavs another two-point edge when he drilled a jumper in
the lane with 26.7 seconds left.

But on the next possession, Artest received the ball in the low post and
completed a three-point play after getting fouled by Ricky Davis.

Cleveland then got the ball and LeBron James missed a shot while driving in
the lane. The Cavs did get the ball back as it went out of bounds off a Pacer,
but Diop missed a shot with just two seconds left and time expired.

The Pacers are off until Sunday when they visit the Philadelphia 76ers.
