#1: Pacers vs. Los Angeles Lakers (June 16, 2000)

The Pacers had their backs against the wall entering Game 5 of the 2000 Finals down 3-1 in the best of seven series.

The Pacers responded playing the best game possible obliterating the Lakers.

This game was so much fun to watch as all 12 Pacers on the playoff roster saw game action including Chris Mullin, Zan Tabak, and Jonathon Bender.

Jalen Rose led the Pacers with 29 points. Shaquille O’Neal led all scorers with 35 points.

While Game 4was the better overall game (the Pacers lost in overtime), Game 5 brought the most joy and excitement.

Pacers won 120-87.
