    INDIANAPOLIS (Ticker) -- The Indiana Pacers try to solidify their hold on the final Eastern Conference playoff spot when they face the Golden State Warriors on Friday.

    Indiana leads the Philadelphia 76ers by 1 1/2 games in the battle for eighth place in the East and trails the fourth-place Washington Wizards by 3 1/2 games with 22 to play.

    The Pacers, who play four of their next five at home, completed a split of their four-game road trip by scoring the first 13 points of the game on the way to an 89-83 victory over the Utah Jazz on Tuesday.

    Stephen Jackson scored a season-high 30 points and Reggie Miller added 24 for the Pacers, who won despite nearly squandering a 25-point lead.

    In the three games since Jermaine O'Neal was placed on the injured list with a sprained right shoulder, Jackson and Miller have combined to average 47 points, while newly-acquired Dale Davis has averaged nine rebounds.

    Golden State is 3-3 on its eight-game road trip, its longest in 30 years, and comes off a 92-88 loss to the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday.

    Baron Davis scored 21 points for his best outing in seven games with the Warriors, who average more than 101 points over their last 14 games after averaging 92 over the prior 12 outings.

    The Warriors can complete their first two-game sweep of the Pacers since 1991-1992 after taking the first meeting, 104-96, on December 4. Jason Richardson scored 19 points for Golden State and Miller had 23 for Indiana.
