    Default Pacers.com: "Satan" leads '98 team past '00 ECF champs



    Well, we all know the '98 team was better, but these results are pretty funny. Once again, I wish they'd put up boxscores. My question is, how did the great All-Star Dale Davis let his younger self go off on him like that? Just more proof that Dale's game was going downhill.

    Unheralded Players Help
    97-98 Team Advance



    By Conrad Brunner | Aug. 18, 2004

    Derrick McKey and Dale Davis, players known primarily for their defense played major offensive roles in leading the 1997-98 Pacers past the 1999-00 team in the second round of Pacers.com's Greatest Teams Tournament.
    The '97-98 team advances to the NBA bracket finals, where it will meet the winner of Thursday's matchup between the top-seeded 2003-04 team and fifth-seeded 1980-81. The NBA bracket final of the fantasy tournament will take place Friday.

    Reggie Miller did his usual playoff thing, averaging 22.0 points in the series for '97-98 but his team needed surprising contributions from McKey and Davis. McKey scored 17 points in Game 2 and 18 in Game 3 to help the team take a 3-0 series lead. After the '99-00 team rallied to win the next two games, Davis stepped up and scored 17 points in the Game 6 clincher.

    In a statistical quirk possible only in a fantasy simulation tournament, Miller was the leading scorer for both teams, also averaging 18.7 for the '99-00 team.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Game 1: 1997-98 wins, 101-100: Miller had his biggest game of the series with 28 points to lead the '97-98 team to a narrow victory in the opener. Rik Smits scored 14, Jalen Rose 13 and Mark Jackson 10 for the victors. Miller and Rose scored 18 apiece for '99-00.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Game 2: 1997-98 wins, 107-101: McKey's 17 points made the difference for the second-seeded '97-98 team in this one. Smits and Antonio Davis scored 18 apiece, Miller 17 and Chris Mullin 12 for the winners. For the losers, Miller scored 19, Smits 17 and Rose 16.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Game 3: 1997-98 wins, 121-92: McKey was hot again with 18 points to spark a blowout victory that gave the '97-98 team a 3-0 series lead. Miller led eight players in double figures with 22. Smits and Mullin had 14 each, Antonio Davis 12, Rose and Jackson 11 each and Travis Best 10. The '99-00 team was led by Miller with 17 and Rose with 16.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Game 4: 1999-00 wins, 100-93: Youngster Al Harrington scored 18 points off the bench as the '99-00 team staved off elimination. Miller scored 22 and Rose 17 for the winners. The '97-98 team lost despite 27 points from Miller and 18 from Smits.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Game 5: 1999-00 wins, 114-86: In a complete turnaround from Game 3, the '99-00 team pulled itself back into the series with a 28-point blowout victory with eight players scoring in double figures. Rose led the way with 22, while Miller had 16, Smits 14, Austin Croshere 12, Sam Perkins and Harrington 11 apiece and Best and Jackson 10 each. The '97-98 team was led by Smits with 18 and Miller with 14.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Game 6: 1997-98 wins, 95-86: Dale Davis' 17-point game was huge in the clincher for '97-98. Miller scored 24, Smits 15 and Antonio Davis 11 for the winners. Miller scored 19 but none of his '99-00 teammates managed more than 11.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Tomorrow: The top-seeded 2003-04 team takes on the fifth-seeded 1980-81 team, with the victor advancing to the NBA bracket final.
