#3: Pacers vs. New York Knicks (May 18, 2013)

Game 6 of the 2013 Eastern Conference Semifinals can be summed up in one play. Roy Hibbert’s iconic block of Carmello Anthony at the rim.

This game was close throughout. Lance Stephenson played his heart out and led the Pacers with 25 points.

Anthony’s 39 points were not enough as the Pacers advanced to the Eastern Conference Finals for the first time since 2004.

Pacers would win 106-99.

#2: Pacers vs Milwaukee Bucks (May 4, 2000)

This was the deciding Game 5 of the first round of the 2000 playoffs. This game was close throughout the entire contest. The Pacers were on the brink of elimination before Travis Best hit a corner three-pointer.

This is still one of the biggest shots in franchise history. Without it, the Pacers wouldn’t have gone on to play the Lakers for the championship.

Reggie Miller led all scorers with 41 points. Sam Cassell led the Bucks with 22.

Pacers won by a thin margin, 96-95.
