Highlights

If it seems like all of Reggie Miller's big playoff moments came against the Knicks, that's partially true. His 25-point fourth quarter barrage in Game 5 of the 1994 Eastern Conference Finals was really topped only by his eight points in 8.9 seconds in the 1995 Eastern Conference Semifinals, with both moments occurring in front of a hostile Madison Square Garden crowd. Miller would also go on to hit huge shots against other teams, including a game-winner over Michael Jordan in the 1998 Eastern Conference Finals that evened the series at two. Miller's affinity for huge moments made it all the more surprising that he could never quite break through and win a championship.
