"The harder shot is the one coming the other way, when I'm coming off a pick from right to left," Miller said. "A lot of times I fall away on that shot and make an adjustment with my body, maybe throwing my right leg up in the air to keep the defender away from me. In practice you should work on both kinds of jumpers. They won't let you have one side or the other in the NBA."
The tape concluded with Miller, having made four free throws down the stretch, taking an inbounds pass at the final buzzer and slamming the ball off the Garden floor in jubilation.
But the scene in the office ended with Miller slamming his hand off a chair in frustration. "The Knicks should not have made it to the Finals!" he said. "We were the better team. This year it's us. I'm going to take us there."
Indeed, Indiana has a shot. And that's largely because Reggie Miller has one.
