Documentary Spotlight
If you’re a basketball fan, you know that one of the great NBA rivalries in the mid-1990s was between the Indiana Pacers and the New York Knicks. In classic David-meets-Goliath style, the two teams faced off in thrilling seven-game battles during the 1994 and 1995 playoffs. In Winning Time: Reggie Miller vs. the New York Knicks, Dan Klores focuses on the Pacers’ master showman, Reggie Miller, who was as skilled at three-pointers as he was at trash talking. Not only did he antagonize the Knicks; he antagonized a whole city and relished every minute of it—just ask Spike Lee.

Winning Time entertains on many levels: it goes beyond the action on the court and delves into the psychology of the game. By deftly weaving humorous interviews with exciting archival footage, Klores has created a film that appeals to both the die-hard fan and someone who has never seen a game.
