Today in Sports History: May 7

By Michael Romanelli

On May 7th, 1995, Reggie Miller of the Indiana Pacers pulled off one of the most impressive scoring moments in NBA History. Down six points in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals, Miller scored 8 points in 9 seconds for the Pacers to come back and win the game. In the final seconds of the game, Reggie made a 3-pointer, and stole the inbounds pass so he could hit another one 3.1 seconds later. After John Starks missed both of his free throws, Miller got fouled and hit both of his shots to take the lead. To make things even more impressive, Miller accomplished this feat all while talking trash to Knicks superfan Spike Lee. For more, see the video below.
