Catching Up With: Travis Best

When talking about the biggest shots in Pacers' history, fans often mention anything associated with Reggie Miller - Game 5 at the Garden in 1994, Game 1 at the Garden in 1995, the shot over Jordan in 1998, etc. But, those same people should mention Travis Best's game-winner in 2000 in the same breath.
