NBA GAME OF THE DAY

Pacers get help from the timekeeper

Indiana overcomes triple-double from Wizards' Gilbert Arenas

December 13, 2009

Washington — Mike Dunleavy benefited from two replay reviews and made two free throws with one-tenth of a second left to help the Indiana Pacers withstand Gilbert Arenas' first triple-double in 5 1/2 years and beat the Washington Wizards, 114-113, on Saturday night.

Arenas had 22 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists for his fourth career triple-double and his first since March 19, 2004.

With Indiana down by a point and out of timeouts, T.J. Ford drove to the basket, and the ball was tipped out of bounds by Washington's Brendan Haywood. The clock showed that time had expired, but a replay put five-tenths of a second on the clock.

The Pacers then lobbed the ball to Dunleavy, who was fouled as time expired. A second review put one-tenth of a second on the clock, and Dunleavy sank both shots.
