Top Sports Rivalries of All Time
Indiana Pacers vs New York Knicks
Besides dealing with Michael Jordan s Bulls, the 1990 s New York Knicks had another Midwest roadblock to hurdle every NBA postseason Reggie Miller s Pacers. Miller famously torched the Knicks in Game 5 of the 1994 Eastern Conference Finals, scoring 25 points in the fourth quarter of a comeback win at Madison Square Garden. A year later, he scored a ridiculous eight points in 8.9 seconds as the Pacers again shocked the Knicks on their home court. But as great as he was and as much as he showed up Spike Lee with that choke hand gesture, the Knicks usually had the last laugh. New York knocked Indiana out of the playoffs each year from 1993-1995 and again in 1999. But Miller and Co. finally found a way to get past Patrick Ewing and the Knicks, knocking them out of the playoffs in 1998 and 2000.
