The Indiana Pacers have had two intense practices in Indianapolis, fueled by Reggie Miller's indefatigable enthusiasm. Austin Croshere took at least one elbow from Dale Davis. Miller knocked down shots. And coach Larry Bird, who has said all year that this team plays like it practices, has been pleased. After avoiding reporters since being ejected from Game 4 of the series and suspended from Game 5, Miller finally broke his silence yesterday. About the Pacers' two practices since losing to the Sixers at Conseco Fieldhouse on Monday, Miller said: "Hopefully, it will be a rollover effect.

The Sixers are 3-0 against Indiana this season, and have not lost to the Pacers at the Spectrum in three years. So you would think tonight's game would be but a mere formality. Think again. Just when you thought it was safe to add another win to the Sixers' record, the Pacers went out and beat the Chicago Bulls, 111-102, to clinch an Eastern Conference playoff spot. The Pacers downed the Bulls on Monday night thanks to the offense of Chuck Person, who scored 33 points, and a solid defense that held Michael Jordan to 23 points on 11-for-24 shooting.

A normal team might have looked around and announced Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid-like: "Who are these guys?" The Indiana Pacers had come back to the First Union Center, made nine of their first 10 shots and barely led the 76ers. They were shooting better than 80 percent into the second quarter and appeared to have a comfortable lead. Then, the other guys caught up - quickly. But they never passed. These Pacers, no normal team, would not let them pass. They just kept shooting.

THE INDIANA PACERS broke out of their funk Tuesday night. Now they just have to play good basketball. The second-best team in the Eastern Conference got 19 points from Paul George and 14 points and 14 rebounds from Tyler Hansbrough, leading the Pacers to a 95-73 rout over visiting Orlando. It's just what Indiana needed after losing two of its last three games and, surprisingly, two of its last three at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, too. "I feel like if we continue to play the way we played today then we can be a tough team to beat," George Hill said after scoring 14 points.

Mark Jackson was the first Pacer to chase after Allen Iverson. Four of his teammates followed. None had much success. In the end, Jackson was still around, standing at the free throw line with a chance to clinch a Game 1 win for the Pacers. He had played 35 very tough minutes, more than he's used to, more than his coach wanted. By all rights, he should have been very tired. With seconds left and your team leading by just two points, tired players have been known to miss big foul shots.

Late in the fourth quarter, there was this guy, all decked out in a black cassock and hood, lurking just behind the Sixers' bench. He held up a scepter with a little sign at the tip. "Hey, Moe," it read. Even The Three Stooges - Larry, Curly and Moe - knew that to have a chance to win, you have to make some baskets. The Sixers didn't make many baskets and their nice little three-game winning streak is history. The Pacers beat them last night, 112-93, in a game the Sixers never really got involved in. "They were playing pretty steady and shooting the ball good," said Doug Moe, the Sixers' coach.

Keep an eye on Micheal Williams tonight. The Indiana Pacers' guard is making the most of his chance to fill in at the point for Vern Fleming, who is on the injured list with a pinched nerve in his neck. He scored a career-high 28 points, had 7 rebounds, 5 assists, 2 blocks and 3 steals in a win over Utah on Saturday and had nine points and a team-high seven assists in a loss to the Lakers Monday. The fact that he is contributing well means a lot to the team, which also placed Rik Smits (elbow surgery)

The Indiana Pacers came face to face with the Starks reality. They are good enough to challenge the New York Knicks, but have no chance to win their first-round playoff series as long as John Starks continues to run wild the way he did in the second half of New York's 101-91 victory yesterday. Starks, who was marooned in the Continental Basketball Association just three years ago, bunched 18 of his 29 points in the second half as the Knicks rallied from a 16-point, first-half deficit to take a 2-0 lead in the best-of- five series.

THE INDIANA PACERS lost the lead, then lost sight of Jeff Green. Kevin Garnett found Green all alone under the basket for a layup with 0.5 seconds remaining to finish off a fourth-quarter comeback from 14 points down, and the visiting Boston Celtics beat the Pacers, 83-81, on Wednesday night. "Happy it went in," Green said. "Great pass by Garnett. Great execution by us. Good draw up by Doc [Rivers]. We have found ways to win. The trust is there now. Guys are giving what Doc wants.

The 76ers without Charles Barkley are a little like The Cosby Show - without Bill Cosby. For most of this season, the thundering all-star forward has been the Sixers' sole marquee attraction. Because of a sprained left ankle that he suffered Wednesday against Chicago, Barkley never left the bench during the Sixers' 94-89 triumph over Indiana last night at the Spectrum. "I knew I wasn't going to play when I came here," Barkley said. So the Sixers turned to their new center, Mike Gminski, who took command of the Sixers' inside game and posted some Barkleyesque statistics in a triumph that snapped a five-game losing streak.

INDIANAPOLIS - The new-look 76ers battled back to make things respectable for a while. But just as they were before the recent roster moves, the Sixers were doomed by poor shooting - especially late. The Indiana Pacers took full advantage Sunday night, closing out the game on a 17-3 run to take a 94-74 victory at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. The Sixers (13-46) trailed by as many as 17 points in the second quarter. However, they battled back and closed the gap to six points on Isaiah Canaan's three-pointer with 9 minutes, 7 seconds remaining.

The 76ers' horrid start to the season is becoming a distant memory. A 93-92 victory over the Indiana Pacers on Saturday night at the Wells Fargo Center was their second consecutive win and third in four games. That's not bad for a team that opened the season with 17 straight losses. Michael Carter-Williams drove the lane and scored on an underhand scoop to give the Sixers a 93-92 lead with 9.9 seconds left. On the ensuing possession, Indiana power forward David West backed down Luc Mbah a Moute before his turnaround jumper clanked off the rim. Pacers center Roy Hibbert then was unable to tip in the miss, and Sixers rookie Nerlens Noel got the rebound as time expired.

INDIANAPOLIS - The 76ers were unable to duplicate the unthinkable. They weren't able to pull off a thrilling upset for the second straight season opener because they couldn't stop Roy Hibbert. The Indiana Pacers escaped with a 103-91 victory Wednesday night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. The 7-foot-2, 275-pound center finished with game highs of 22 points and seven blocked shots to go with eight rebounds for the shorthanded Pacers. But the Sixers had their chances in a game with nine lead changes and five ties in the first three quarters.

A 4-year-old, Captaintreacherous finishes his career with 23 wins in 33 races and $3.14 million in purses. His earnings rank No. 12 among all pacers in history. This season, Captaintreacherous won two of seven starts. He was scratched from the Canadian Pacing Derby in August. "Captain just hasn't been himself for the last several weeks," Alagna said.

SOMETHING happened between the Pacers' Evan Turner and Lance Stephenson at practice last Friday. Exactly what is under dispute. Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski reported the two engaged in a fistfight and had to be pried apart the day before Game 1 of the Pacers' first-round playoff series against he Hawks. Not so, the players said yesterday. "Honestly, the person who wrote the article asked me if the fight happened, I told him, 'No, it wasn't [a fight],' and he just went on and wrote that there were punches thrown and all this, and it wasn't," Turner, who played three-plus seasons with the Sixers, told the Indianapolis Star.

AS THE SIXERS gear up for the NBA Draft in June, 16 teams begin their quest for a championship. The playoffs start tomorrow afternoon, when the Raptors and Nets meet in their first-round matchup at 12:30 p.m. This year's playoffs is a mix between the usual contenders and a few surprises. The Eastern Conference is significantly weaker than the Western Conference, as has been the case all season. For example, the Washington Wizards, who are the No. 5 seed in the East, won 10 fewer games than the Portland Trail Blazers, the No. 5 seed in the West.

TWICE IN 4 DAYS recently, the 76ers played toe-to-toe with the Indiana Pacers, the team atop the Eastern Conference. It was a decided mismatch before the games started, with the Pacers looking to maintain their lead over Miami for the No. 1 seed. The Sixers, meanwhile, were getting national attention for another reason as they were setting a franchise record for consecutive losses and creeping closer to the all-time NBA record for futility. As I watched these mostly rented Sixers battle with the far more talented Pacers, I started thinking back to years not so long ago when these two franchises were in the same place.
