Made his mark with a paramount 3-pointer.
Despite the league-wide emphasis on the 3-point shot after his retirement, Miller still ranks third all-time in career 3-pointers made -- after fellow Hall of Famer Ray Allen and current Golden State star Stephen Curry -- with 2,560.
As proof of his all-around shooting skills, Miller led the NBA in free throw percentage five times. His best mark came in 2004-05, when he shot 93.3% and he shot 90% or better eight times in his 18 seasons. His 88.7% free-throw percentage ranks 12th all-time.
In the 1993-94 season, Miller shot 50.3% overall, 42.1% on 3-pointers and 90.8% on free throws. That put him in the 50-40-90 club, a feat accomplished by eight other players in league history.
In what became an epic scoring flurry, Miller had eight points in nine seconds for the Pacers late in Game 1 of the 1995 Eastern Conference semifinals against the Knicks. In the 1994 playoffs, Miller scored 25 of his 39 points in the fourth quarter during Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals against the Knicks and became an instant enemy of Madison Square Garden and court-side heckler Spike Lee.
Miller set the Pacers’ single-game scoring record with 57 on Nov. 28, 1992 against the Charlotte Hornets. He holds 10 career records in Pacers history and is in the top 10 in every other category except field goal percentage and blocked shots.
Miller helped the Pacers to their first and only appearance in the 2000 NBA Finals, where they lost to the Lakers despite Miller averaging 24.3 ppg in the series.
