This Day in Pacers History: January 31

Pat Lovell-USA TODAY Sports

Highlights include Chuck Person scoring 47 points, Charles Barkley scoring a double-double, and a young Kyle Korver showing his late-game execution against Indiana on this day in Pacers history.

  • 1980: Alex English scored 21 points for Indiana, but it wasn't enough to beat the Knicks 112-102.
  • 1984: Indiana held San Diego to 33 percent in a 111-97 win. Herb Williams led the Pacers with 28 points.
  • 1986: Williams also had a game-high 27 points as Indiana beat Seattle 101-94.
  • 1987: All five Cavalier starters scored in double-digits as Cleveland edged Indiana 102-100.
  • 1989: Chuck Person scored 47 against the Knicks, but it was New York who got the win 120-111.
  • 1990: Charles Barkley scored 31 points and had 16 rebounds to lead the Sixers over the Pacers, 112-108.
  • 1992: Indiana's defense held Atlanta to just seven points in overtime to get the 115-106 win. Person led the way with 31 points.
  • 1997: Houston had an off-night by putting up just 74 points that allowed the Pacers to get the easy 100-74 win.
  • 2001: Boston got their sixth win on the road thanks to a hot overtime period where they scored 15 that helped them beat the Pacers in OT, 102-96.
  • 2003: Usually it's Reggie Miller who has the hot hand from deep, but it was Erick Straickland who led the Pacers with two 3-pointers against the Raptors, but it was Toronto who came out on top 102-90.
  • 2004: Good late defense by Metta World Peace (then Ron Artest) helped the Pacers edge out a win over the Celtics 99-98.
  • 2005: Kyle Korver hit a game-winning 3-pointer with six seconds remaining to give the Sixers the one point win over Indiana.
  • 2006: After trading World Peace, Peja Stojakovic made his debut with the Pacers, but was a sour one as they fell to Washington in large part to an Antawn Jamison double-double.
  • 2009: T.J. Ford dropped a 36-point performance for the Pacers, but David Lee's double-double was too much for Indiana in a 122-113 loss.
  • 2010: Chris Bosh's 26 points and 15 rebounds put the Pacers down 117-102.
  • 2011: Roy Hibbert and Paul George made key plays toward the end of a 104-93 win over Toronto.
  • 2012: George Hill left in the second quarter to an ankle injury, but the Pacers were able to win without him over the Nets.
