The Indiana Pacers have had some of their best years of late, but how do they fair with their best moments in franchise history? Although they are still looking for that first elusive NBA title, they still have had many moments to cheer for over the years.
This one can be debated for why it is on the top five moments all time, however in this game by game George, although only scoring 22 points, showed the entire league that he is somebody who is ready to take the next step. He carried his strong play of this series to next season and Pacer fans everywhere expect only better days ahead.
Heading into the fourth quarter of Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals the Indiana Pacers trailed the New York Knicks 70-58 on the road. All looked lost until Reggie Miller happened, scoring 25 points in the quarter including five three-pointers. Of course everyone remembers his not-so-friendly moments with film director, Spike Lee, during his impressive performance.
After seemingly being unable to beat the New York Knicks in a playoff series, history seemed to be repeating itself as the Pacers failed to close Game 6 out at home and had to win Game 7 in New York. In what was a crazy final moments, Knick center Patrick Ewing missed what seemed to be a for sure layup to send the game to overtime. Pacers radio personality, Mark Boyle, enhanced the moment with the best radio call in team history.
Possible the most iconic memory anyone will ever recall from the game of basketball, Reggie Miller did the unthinkable in the 1995 playoffs scoring 8 points in the closing seconds to steal Game 1 on the road.
After seeing their goals of reaching the NBA finals go unreached year after year, in 2000 the Pacers were finally able to not only defeat New York Knicks, but do it for a trip to the NBA Finals. They ultimately came up short against the Los Angeles Lakers, but the season was still the best the franchise has seen.
