Editor's Note: Due to the NBA schedule release, the original schedule for Pacers Day on NBA TV has changed. See below for the updated schedule.

Each day this month, NBA TV is spotlighting a different NBA franchise. Friday, Aug. 10 is "Pacers Day," when the channel will be showing a plethora of memorable games from Pacers history.

The action tips off bright and early at 6:30 AM ET with Game 6 of the 1973 Western Division Finals. The Pacers defeated the Utah Stars 107-98 in that contest to advance to the 1973 ABA Finals, where they won their third and final ABA championship.

At 8:00 AM, you can watch the Pacers-Hornets clash from Nov. 28, 1992, when Reggie Miller scored an NBA franchise-record 57 points.

Next up are a couple of the most famous games from the storied Pacers-Knicks rivalry of the mid-1990s. At 10:00 AM is Game 5 of the 1994 Eastern Conference Finals, when Miller scored 25 points in the fourth quarter of a 93-86 win. Then at noon is Game 7 of the 1995 Eastern Conference Semifinals, where Indiana eked out a 97-95 win at Madison Square Garden to eliminate the Knicks.

Then at 2:00 PM is Game 5 of the 2000 first-round series against Milwaukee, where Travis Best's game-winning 3-pointer in the closing seconds helped Indiana advance and sparked the only run to the NBA Finals in franchise history.

After a few hours of programming devoted to the release of the 2018-19 NBA schedule, you can watch live as the Indiana Fever visit the Phoenix Mercury in a regular season WNBA contest at 10:00 PM.
