#9: Pacers vs. Milwaukee Bucks (January 4, 2005)

Jermaine O’Neal put on a show for the hometown crowd scoring a career-high 55 points against Michael Redd‘s Milwaukee Bucks. O’Neal also finished with 11 rebounds, three assists, and two blocks.

O’Neal probably would’ve added to those totals, but he was pulled early with the Pacers in total control of the game.

The 55 points are still the most points scored by a player in the Fieldhouse.

Pacers won 116-99.

#8: Pacers vs. Miami Heat (June 1, 2013)

Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals was an elimination game for the Pacers, and they responded with their backs against the wall.

Miami went into halftime leading by a point, but the Pacers rallied in the third quarter outscoring Miami 29-15.

Paul George led the Pacers with 28 points and Roy Hibbert added 24 points and anchored a strong defense that stifled the Heat.

Lebron James topped all scorers with 29 points, but it wasn’t enough as the Pacers forced Game 7.

Pacers won on the big stage, 91-77.
