Dunleavy keeps Pacers' playoff hopes alive

Saturday, April 5, 2008

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Mike Dunleavy had 27 points and 11 rebounds and the Indiana Pacers kept their faint playoff hopes alive by edging the Milwaukee Bucks 105-101 on Friday night.

Indiana pulled within three games of Atlanta for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference with the victory. The Hawks lost 109-104 to the Philadelphia 76ers.

Troy Murphy scored 17 points and Danny Granger added 13 for Indiana, which has missed the playoffs the last two seasons. Jermaine O'Neal had 11 points and six turnovers in his third game back after missing 33 with a sore left knee.

The Pacers have six games remaining, including matchups with the Bucks on Sunday and the Hawks on Tuesday night.

Michael Redd scored 28 points for Milwaukee, and Andrew Bogut added 21 points and 16 rebounds.
