Tuesday night was the anniversary of a fourth quarter that Knicks fans will never forget. It was the anniversary of a spectacular finish by former Pacers guard Reggie Miller in the 1994-95 NBA playoffs, when Miller scored eight points in 8.9 seconds in a comeback win over the Knicks. The Pacers went on to win the best-of-seven series in seven games.
The event ignited a decades-long feud between Miller and Knicks fans, and movie director Spike Lee, who is a courtside fixture at Madison Square Garden, certainly hasn’t forgotten the incident.
On Tuesday night, Miller himself was on the call for TNT, 18 years after his last-second heroics, to broadcast another playoff game between the Knicks and the Pacers, and Lee couldn’t help but taunt Miller a bit during one of Miller’s live shots.
In the video below, Lee is seen walking behind Miller with an incredulous look on his face.
