Pacers to retire Miller's number
By Mike Wells
ORLANDO, Fla. -- The Indiana Pacers will retire guard Reggie Miller's number during the March 30 game against the Phoenix Suns at Conseco Fieldhouse.
The Pacers wanted to retire Miller's No. 31 earlier but couldn't because of scheduling conflicts. An official announcement is expected today.
Miller will join Roger Brown (35), Mel Daniels (34), George McGinnis (30) and Bob "Slick" Leonard (529, symbolizing his wins as a coach) as the only Pacers to have their numbers retired.
Miller, who retired at the end of last season, spent his entire 18-year career with the Pacers. He led the Pacers to the playoffs 15 times, including six trips to the Eastern Conference finals and their lone appearance in the NBA Finals.
Miller, known for his late-game heroics, ended his career as the 12th-leading scorer and leader in 3-pointers in NBA history.
Miller is currently a television analyst for TNT. He will be in Miami tonight for the Pacers' game against the Heat.
