For the rest of the summer on every Thursday, a notable Pacer game or performance will be posted. Whether it’s Reggie Miller giving Spike Lee a choke sign or a random Pacer game in the past, each video will sure to bring nostalgia.
Forget about the damage LeBron James, Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving are going to do the rest of the NBA. Don’t worry about that right now. Let’s reminisce about old times.
On June 1, 1994, the Pacers and Knicks were tied at 2-2 in the Eastern Conference Finals. The day before that, the Pacers beat the Knicks in game 4 to tie series. This was a huge game.
Reggie Miller went on to destroy the Knicks, scoring 39 points and dishing out six assists. He shot 14-of-26 from the field, 6-of-11 at the three-point line and made five free throws.
He didn’t end the night without creating a buzz. After hitting a shot in the corner, he turned and jabbered towards to Spike Lee who was sitting in floor seats. Moments later the Pacers are on the free-throw line and Miller is still jabbering to Lee. Then it happens. Reggie Miller directs a choke sign to Spike Lee and grabs his “shorts”.
This was about a month before I was born. It must have been fun watching this live.
