Banker’s Life Fieldhouse is celebrating its 20th Anniversary as the home for the Indiana Pacers.

To commemorate the event, I put together the top 20 Indiana Pacers games over the span of the arena’s lifetime.

Without further adieu, let the countdown begin:

#20: Pacers vs. Toronto Raptors (April 4, 2017)

This game featured the return of Lance Stephenson to Indianapolis. He was greeted with a hero’s welcome and brought effort and energy to a Pacers team that was dead in the water prior to his return.

Stephenson picked up where he left off in Indy, immediately getting under the skin of Demar DeRozan. The Pacers captured a much-needed win led by Paul George‘s 35 points. Without the return of Lance, the Pacers would not have made the playoffs in 2017.

Pacers won 108-90.
