The Lakers and Pacers played a wild and streak-laden NBA game Tuesday night, with a last-second tip-in giving host Indiana a 118-117 victory. Quoting from this ESPN.com/AP article:

...when [Los Angeles] closed the third quarter with a 17-0 run to take a 101-86 lead, it seemed as if the Lakers were destined for yet another rout...

[But] when Los Angeles put together its big run at the end of the third, [Danny] Granger and [Troy] Murphy returned the favor by igniting a 10-0 spurt early in the fourth to get the Pacers within seven.

Also, Indiana made 20 of 21 free throws.
