The Pacers may not have had Winning Time Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden, but they still had Reggie Miller.
Miller, now an analyst for TNT, was back to torment New York one more time Tuesday — on the 18th anniversary of the night he scored eight points in 8.9 seconds to beat the Knicks in the playoffs, no less. With Miller wearing a headset instead of outplaying John Starks and Patrick Ewing, the Knicks prevailed 105-79, but that didn’t keep Miller and a still-bitter Knicks crowd from enjoying the anniversary.
Miller tweeted earlier in the day in anticipation of the game.
Sooooooo looking forward to hearing the Garden's faithful crowd as Kevin Harlan, Rachel Nichols and myself come into the building... Smile..— Reggie Miller (@ReggieMillerTNT) May 07, 2013
Knicks fans, however, had the best moment of the night. With the fourth quarter winding down and the win in hand (what — you thought New York fans would pull out their taunting too early?), they serenaded their old foe with some “Reggie sucks” chants.
