This Day in Pacers History: January 10

Reggie Miller made a huge impact for the Pacers on this date. - Kevork Djansezian

Reggie Miller returns to Bankers Life Fieldhouse tonight as a member of the TNT broadcasting crew. It's fitting he returns on this date where he scores 44 points against the Bulls in 1990.

  • 1978: Marques Johnson submitted a double-double for the Bucks (23 pts., 12 rebs.) to give the Pacers a 125-103 loss.
  • 1979: Seattle put seven Sonics in the double-figure point range to lead the Sonics over the Pacers 118-98.
  • 1981: Indiana beat Milwaukee this time around, 106-102. Billy Knight led the Pacers with 21 points.
  • 1984: Despite shooting worse than the Pacers, the Bulls come out on top 105-104.
  • 1986: Los Angeles put up a nice show over the Pacers as Kareem put up 31 points while Kurt Rambis had a double-double. Steve Stipanovich led the Pacers with 18 points, but Indiana still fell short 124-102.
  • 1987: Indiana held Utah to 39 percent, yet the Jazz still beat the Pacers 105-96. The clear difference was at the free throw line. Indiana made 12, but not even in the same arena to the Jazz — they made 36 FTs.
  • 1990: As Reggie Miller makes his return to Indianapolis tonight, his most poignant game on this date was 23 years ago today against the Bulls where he scored 44 points in a 120-113 win.
  • 1991: Sure, Patrick Ewing put up 42 points against the Pacers. Yet, the Knicks came out as the loser in a 129-122 sprint. Indiana shot just under 59 percent.
  • 1995: Reggie scored 28 against his favorite opponent, the Knicks, but John Starks wanted to ruin the party for Indiana. His eight made three-pointers helped propel New York over Indiana 117-105.
  • 1997: Reggie was once again the leading scorer, this time with 18, in a 108-89 win over the Nuggets.
  • 1998: Reggie's 24 points and a lack of made field goals by Dallas in the fourth quarter helped the Pacers win 84-79.
  • 2003: Reggie hit a three-pointer in the 30 seconds to seal the win for the Pacers 101-97. Metta World Peace appeared in his first game since breaking a camera following a Jan. 3 loss.
  • 2004: A little mis-possession made by World Peace in overtime led the Spurs to sneak out an 89-88 win in San Antonio.
  • 2007: After playing much of his ball with the Pacers in his career, Jermaine O' Neal buries the Pacers in the second half as a Celtic as his new team beat his former squad 97-84.
  • 2013: Tonight, Reggie makes his return as he calls the Knicks take on the Pacers on TNT.
