Indiana Pacers coach Rick Carlisle has seen Jermaine O'Neal come a long way since Carlisle coached O'Neal in the Utah summer league in 1996 when both were with the Portland Trail Blazers. So, when Carlisle hears that O'Neal believes his leadership is the best part of his game, the coach isn't surprised. "I believe that Jermaine realizes at this point in time in his career and where this team is, a lot of the most valuable tangible things he can bring to this team are stability and leadership," Carlisle said recently.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Poor Spike Lee. Within the space of 24 hours, he was used twice, once by Reggie Miller, who was in dire need of an enemy, and once by the yapping posse of New York, which was in frantic need of a scapegoat.As the Knicks lumbered into Market Square Arena last night, needing a victory to survive, too much attention was on Spike Lee and too little on the splendid directorial assets of Reggie Miller and the glaring cerebral defects of the Knicks.It wasn't the spindly filmmaker from Brooklyn who turned the series around.

INDIANAPOLIS - Indiana Pacers guard Reggie Miller may not be all he once was, but he was more than enough to beat the Washington Wizards last night. Miller single-handedly shot the Pacers back in the game, with 17 of his 25 points in the third quarter, as Indiana erased a 10-point Washington lead to prevail, 100-84. Of course, the Wizards (6-9), who dropped their fifth straight game, did more than their share to help, scoring a season-low 29 points in the second half, scoring only one field goal in the fourth quarter, as they let the Pacers seize control of the game, both emotionally and physically.

INDIANAPOLIS - When Shaquille O'Neal is at the foul line late in the game, Pacers guard Reggie Miller says he is most concerned that his team is lined up correctly to box out just in case the Lakers center misses. Miller reiterated the "just in case part" instead of saying "when" because he is still not convinced O'Neal will automatically miss. But missing is what O'Neal did in Game 3, shooting 3-for-13 for the game, including 1-for-7 in the fourth quarter. Miller, who finished second behind Utah Jazz guard Jeff Hornacek in free-throw shooting percentage this season, knocked down nine of nine, including eight in the fourth quarter.

WASHINGTON - With this year's playoffs an impossibility, the Washington Wizards have officially reached the point in the season where moral victories actually mean as much as the real ones. The Wizards didn't get an actual win yesterday, dropping an 86-80 decision to the Indiana Pacers at MCI Center, but they got continued improvement from their kiddie corps. Rookies Bobby Simmons and Kwame Brown and second-year player Etan Thomas made important defensive contributions, with assistance from veteran Tyrone Nesby, in the second quarter when the Wizards (36-45)

INDIANAPOLIS -- The signs of satisfaction were everywhere. There was a permanence to the good vibes, something that would survive the taunts, the threes, the general chaos that made this series as hard it was.Kevin Gamble, who made the basket to save his team from imminent implosion, recorded the feeling at the end with an authoritative spike. The Boston Celtics had won another one they easily could have lost and the Indiana Pacers had quickly gone from main concern to afterthought."It feels good.

NEW YORK - Not again? Patrick Ewing not only didn't make it back for Game3, but the New York Knicks lost Marcus Camby, too, and still coasted to a 98-95 victory over the Pacers yesterday, cutting Indiana's lead in the NBA Eastern Conference finals to 2-1. As far as the Pacers are concerned, 12 mannequins in Knicks uniforms would be dangerous. "It was very disappointing," Pacers coach Larry Bird said.

NEW YORK -- For a player who has enjoyed many memorable moments at Madison Square Garden, Indiana Pacers guard Reggie Miller appeared reluctant to pull the trigger in his team's Game 3 loss to the New York Knicks. So coming off a game when he attempted just nine shots, Miller vowed he'd come out for last night's Game 4 shooting. Well, that scenario never materialized as Miller played a scoreless first half, missing all three of his attempts. But his teammates survived his slow start as the Pacers defeated the New York Knicks, 90-78, in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals.

ORLANDO, Fla. -- It's not nice to fool with primal forces of natures, such as storms, tides or Shaquille O'Neal.Embarrassed for two games in Indiana, O'Neal exploded for 35 points and 13 rebounds last night, and the Orlando Magic held off the fast-closing Indiana Pacers to win, 108-106, taking a 3-2 lead in the NBA's Eastern Conference finals.Said the Pacers' Reggie Miller: "He's a monster down there."O'Neal had been held to a total of 34 points in Games 3 and 4. He missed all eight of his free throws and fouled out of Game 4. He snarled at a youngster to get out of his way leaving Market Square Arena.
