Indiana Pacers are based in Indianapolis, Indiana. From 1967 to 1976 the team competed in ABA and then joined the NBA. However, their most successful seasons were during that period where they won three titles, a feat which they were never able to repeat again. The first decade of joining the NBA was marked by struggles and the team failed to have any significant impact in the league.
In 1987, Pacers drafted Reggie Miller, a player that would go down as a legend for the Pacers franchise. However, the beginning wasn't that great, and the first few seasons they failed to go deep into playoffs. In the 1993-94 season, they started enjoying great success as they went to the Eastern Conference Finals, ultimately losing to the New York Knicks in seven games. Under the guidance of their head coach, Larry Brown, they repeated the same success and went all the way to the Eastern Conference Finals, this time losing to the Orlando Magic.
Since joining the NBA, their biggest success would come in the 1999-2000 seasons where they would go all the way to the NBA Finals, losing only to the Los Angeles Lakers in six games.
