This Day in Pacers History: January 18

New, comment

There were a couple game-winning shots on this date in Pacers history. One of them went Indiana's way in 2003 while another made by a Miami foe in 2007 went against the Pacers.

Dwyane Wade hit a game-winning layup against the Pacers on this date in 2007.

  • 1978: It was a roller-coaster kind of game for the Pacers, but they found themselves on the losing end to the Spurs 109-96.
  • 1981: Mike Bantom led the way with 25 points in a 110-89 win over the Jazz.
  • 1983: Larry Bird scored 32 points in a 130-126 defenseless game that Boston won. However, all five starters for the Pacers scored in double figures.

  • 1986: Melvin Turpin's double-double helped his Cavaliers beat the Pacers 108-95.
  • 1988: Indiana shot just 38 percent, and on most nights, that won't cut it. Indiana left Seattle with a 115-105 road loss.
