50th Season 1970s Central

1970s Decade Game

Leading up to our second "Decade Game" on Saturday, Dec. 10 against the Trail Blazers, we spent the whole week remembering the great Pacers teams, players, and stories from the 1970s. On game day, we honored many players from the 1970s at halftime and all fans who attended the game received a bobblehead of either Hall of Famer Mel Daniels or Pacers legend George McGinnis.
