Reggie Miller had his number retired tonight, and I'm sure the rest of the Pacers wished he was in uniform for their game against the Suns. With Stephen Jackson scoring only 1 point in 15 minutes, and then sitting out the rest of the game with an ankle (why do we never say what's wrong with the body part any more), the Pacers had problems, well, keeping pace.
The Suns led comfortably throughout, and ended their 2-game losing streak with an easy 10-point win. The game was never in doubt, as the suns led by 9-18 points the entire second half. It seems they have come to terms with the fact that their team "is what it is," and that they will most likely have to enter the post-season without Amare.
As for Reggie Miller, he's no doubt one of the all-time clutch shooters in the game. His antics against the Knicks in the playoffs at MSG are legendary, and in my book he's a definite Hall-Of-Famer. And oh yeah, I got myself one of these shirts to commemorate the occasion.
