    The Reggie Miller game.

    Remember the game where Reggie Miller scored 8 points in 9.9 seconds?


    I've never seen that game, nor been able to find a replay.


    Until now.


    It's going to be airing on Friday, August 24, 2012 at 11AM on NBA TV HD.


    I'm setting the DVR to record it.


    Hopefully I can get a sense of how it felt in real-time (as opposed to watching an edited highlights clip).

    Yup, that's it.

    I just want to watch the game from the beginning, so I can get a sense of what the Knicks were feeling like before it happened, and what happened afterward.

    Plus, I'm sure there will be some funny moments between Spike Lee and Miller, throughout the game.

    watched the ESPN Documentary: Miller Time
    They talked about that moment, and Spike Lee vs. Reggie Miller

    Spike Lee and Miller had also gotten into it in 1994, during the game in which Miller scored 25 points in the 4th quarter.

    I caught that one on replay several years ago.

    What stood out to me, other than the 4th quarter, was the 1st quarter. NY had a 17-2 lead, but they were just taking a bunch of midrange jumpers. It's not like they were fast breaking and getting layups.


    I thought later in the game, those jumpers just stopped falling, and then Indiana's bigs were setting great screens to free up Reggie.


    Reggie and Spike Lee were going at it, Reggie was making a choking gesture, to imply that the Knicks were choking again.


    I'll bet this 1995 game has similar interactions between Reggie and Spike Lee.


    It definitely set the stage for this 1995 game, in terms of Miller having a big game against NY, and messing with Spike Lee.

    The Knicks are surprisingly playing uptempo. Just about every shot has been within the first 10 seconds of the shot clock.

    It's so nice to see a hand up whenever a shot is taken, by both teams.

    Why can't the Kings do this?

    I didn't know Byron Scott could still play in 1995. He made a layup at the 1st quarter buzzer.

    Bill Walton: I guess Reggie Miller hasn't figured out how to substitute himself yet.

    (Walton spoke about how Miller has been on the bench for a while.)

    Spud Webb lead the league in FT%, while playing for the Kings, 93.4%!

    3rd quarter, Jackson to Miller on the fast break for 3!

    Reggie then looks and Derek Harper and Spike Lee, as he's running back on defense.

    (Side note: Earlier in the game, Walton said that Miller's defense was all right.)

    I remember watching that game as a kid! Great performance. Great choke job by the Knicks who I used to hate...and still do.

    Right now, I'm thinking choke job by the Pacers! They had an 8 point lead late in the 3rd! Why did they get behind?

    Byron Scott is the 4th active scorer, behind Jordan, Robert Parish, Hakeem Olajuwon.

    Anthony Mason grabbed a NY rebound off a missed FT, and Starks made the FTs on the ensuing foul, for a 103-97 lead with 27 seconds left.

    Bill Walton, at 99-105:

    "The Pacer offense not hungry enough, the offense not good enough to get Derrick McKey the shots where he needs it, when he needs it".

    After Reggie made two 3's, Starks went to the foul line. He missed both, NY got the rebound, but they missed the FGA, and then IND got the rebound.

    * I used to think 90's basketball, specifically the Knicks, was so different. I thought they would take 20 seconds before launching a shot.

    But NY took most of its shots within 10 seconds, like most teams now.

    * This game almost set the record for most fouls in a game, with 59. They had more combined fouls than a 4OT game.

    * Miller sucked prior to his burst, at one point going 4-16.

    * The big men in this game could really hit jumpers. Rik Smits, Charles Oakley, Patrick Ewing, Charles Smith, Hubert Davis.

    Now picture DeAndre Jordan, who has taken one career shot outside of the paint.

    * Rik Smith had a playoffs career high 34 points. Rik Smiths = Pau.

    * The ball handling in this game was really good. But that's probably to be expected, when you have Mark Jackson. Indiana had 25 assists and 14 turnovers, while New York had 26 assists and 12 turnovers, either of which would be great by any team in the modern era.
