Rivalries & Top Games to Attend

Pacers vs Knicks

Rival Team: New York Knicks

The Pacers-Knicks rivalry has been going strong since the Pacers entered the league in 1976, but the rivalry really heated up from 1993 to 2000 when the Pacers and Knicks met in the playoffs six times. The flames of this rivalry were fueled by the back and forth sparring between the Pacers Reggie Miller and Knicks fan Spike Lee. Even almost two decades later these two teams still hate each other, and there is a lot of bad blood when they get together.

Pacers vs Pistons

Rival Team: Detroit Pistons

The Pacers and Pistons have been rivals for years and in 2004 things boiled over during what is now known as The Malice in The Palace. The brawl is one of the most infamous moments and ugliest moments in NBA history. Whenever these two Central Division rivals get together there will be plenty of bad blood, so make sure you’re in attendance for these hotly contested matchups.

Pacers vs Bulls

Rival Team: Chicago Bulls

The close proximity of Indianapolis and Chicago has led to the development of a relatively strong rivalry between these two Central Division foes. The rivalry was at its zenith during the 90s when Michael Jordan would square off against Reggie Miller on a regular basis, but you’ll still find plenty of both fans at the game when these two meet.
