With the Indiana Pacers near the top of the East, Wednesday's visit to the cellar-dwelling Milwaukee Bucks should have been easy. However, the scuffling Pacers rested all five starters and required late-game heroics from Chris Copeland to exalt the bench mob to a 104-102 victory. 

Copeland still did not start, but he scored 18 points in 17 minutes and knocked down four three-pointers. His tough driving layup beat Ramon Sessions to the cup and kept Indy within a sniff of first place.
