    Default Two Pacers games listed among top 10 games of the year in Indiana

    Indy Sports Legends picked its top 10 games played in Indiana in 2012, and the Pacers have two -- one a win and one a loss. The Fever also have one on the list. It was a tough call with a Super Bowl, Notre Dame's run to the national title game and of course, Butler's dramatic win over IU.

    How is the Colts beating the Dolphins on here, but not the Colts beating the Packers?

    I'd imagine 2 reasons:

    1. Luck set the rookie record (I think it was 400 plus, right?)
    2. At the time, the Colts/Dolphins were gunning for the same spot. Was definitely an important win from a playoff perspective, and really launched the belief that Indy would make it.


    It'd be tough though. That Minnesota game was good too. I'm a little surprised that home blowout of Miami wasn't on there (The "Gold Out" game)

    I was at the Packer sgame and the Dolphins game, the Packer come back and with Chuck being diagnosed that week and everything else that happened was a much better game and atmosphere and it wasn't even really close. Luck's throw with the Packer defenders hanging on his back late in the game is the picture of the Colts season IMO. Not to mention his scramble and then the pounding of the chuckstrong sign after running in for the TD was another fantastic moment.

    Fever should be #1, and I would say it's not even close!

    Also should probably be game 3 instead of game 4. I understand that game 4 clinched it, but...game 3 was an absolutely epic *** whoopin' where a huge underdog outplayed the loaded defending champs in every aspect of the game of basketball in front of 18,000 screaming red shirted people.

    It was 70-33 at one point. 70-33! It just had no business happening at all and yet it did.

    I don't quite get the criteria of this list. It's a weird mix of games featuring Indiana teams, games not featuring Indiana teams, and sentimental picks. Based on the order of the games and the ones chosen, I don't really know what he is ranking.

    For the record, this list only includes games covered by this website's staff. Might explain ommissions.
