Person's 3-Pointers Help Spurs Top Pacers

Article excerpt

Chuck Person hit three 3-pointers in a 15-2 fourth-quarter run as San Antonio defeated Indiana 100-88 Sunday for its 13th consecutive victory.

David Robinson topped the Spurs with 22 points and 13 rebounds, his 50th double-double of the season.

Person missed his first six shots against his former team before connecting for the first of two successive 3s with 10 minutes 3 seconds to play, giving the Spurs an 81-75 lead. His second made the score 84-75 with 9:36 remaining, and his third put the Spurs ahead 91-77 with 7:38 to go.

Miller, who brought a 20.9 scoring average into the game, was called for an offensive foul and received his second technical for slamming the ball to the court in protest with 8:53 remaining in the third period and his team trailing 56-50.

Raptors 109, Bulls 108: Toronto pulled one of the most unlikely upsets of the season, beating Chicago when the Bulls couldn't free Michael Jordan for the final shot.

Steve Kerr took it instead, from about 2 feet behind the 3-point arc, and it hit the front of the rim and bounced away. The Raptors hugged and high-fived, sending the NBA's biggest crowd of the season, 36,131, home happy.

Alvin Robertson, who came off the disabled list Saturday, was covering Jordan on the play. It was just the eighth loss of the season for the Bulls, who are still on pace to win an NBA-record 70 games.

Damon Stoudamire scored a career-high 30 points for Toronto.

Cavaliers 90, Grizzlies 85: Danny Ferry scored 13 fourth-quarter points as Cleveland held off a rally and sent Vancouver to its 18th consecutive loss. The Grizzlies' losing streak is one away from their season-worst skid of 19 in a row. …
