Date: 5/4/1993
Teams: New York Knicks vs. Indiana Pacers
Round: Game 3, Eastern Conference Quarterfinals
Winner: Reggie Miller
Reggie Miller ushered in the era of flops. He was the master of getting under his opponents' skin and coaxing them into making irrational decisions based on emotion. Earlier during the '93 season, Michael Jordan was suspended for a game because of a punch he threw at Miller. But later that season, John Starks would become his favorite target. Starks felt Reggie was throwing elbows all game and he wasn't having it. He purposely sought Miller out and head-butted him for it. Starks was ejected, the Knicks lost the game (but won the series, 3-1) and John was fined $5,000.
