(Sports Network) – Jermaine O’Neal scored 27 points and hauled down 11
rebounds to lead Indiana over New York, 93-70, Thursday at Conseco Fieldhouse
in an Eastern Conference battle.

Ron Artest added 21 points for the Pacers, who won their seventh straight
game. Al Harrington netted 12 points and tallied six boards off the bench for
Indiana, which has won 12 of its last 13 games and holds the best record in
the Eastern Conference at 13-2.

The Pacers started the game on a 12-2 run and they never looked back. O’Neal
completed the early burst on a bucket with 9:01 left in the first quarter.

Indiana led 26-19 after the opening 12 minutes before taking a 52-40 edge into
the intermission.

The Pacers, who led by as many as 24, continued to dominate in the third
quarter, outscoring the Knicks, 26-19.

Indiana rested most of their starters in the final 12 minutes and still held
New York to only 11 points in the quarter.

The Pacers played without guard Jamaal Tinsley who is suffering from a sore
back.

The Pacers wore jerseys from 1973, when they won the ABA title.

Indiana has won seven in a row for the first time since a nine-game run from
November 2-22, 2002.
