May 7, 1995 marked one of the best days in Indiana Pacers franchise history and also one of the worst for the New York Knicks. The reason, Reggie Miller and his eight points in 8.9 seconds in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals, which lead the Pacers to an upset 107–105 win. Paying tribute to the moment, artist Andrzej Kilanowski from Toruń, Poland created this piece to haunt Knick fans everywhere. Even now it’s hard to believe that so many things went right/wrong for a team in just 8.9 seconds.
“The joy of them choking, and that satisfaction of doing it in New York? John missing two free-throws at home? That’s the joy of it.” – Reggie Miller
