It is the stuff of Knicks nightmares: Reggie Miller on May 7, 1995, scored eight points in :08.9 to during the final :18 of the game to give the Pacers a 107-105 Game 1 Eastern Conference semifinals victory over the Knicks.

Could anyone do something like that again?

“I did on the video game one day,” said Pacers forward George Hill after Indiana’s morning shootaround.

“I hope so. Absolutely,” said Indiana coach Frank Vogel who was prepping his gang for Game 2 of the Eastern semis Tuesday night at the Garden. “Which one of our guys can do it? I don’t know. I think it will be eight points in nine seconds but with three different scorers.”

Hill actually threw out a name – Golden State’s Stephen Curry – as the guy most likely to do something ridiculous like Miller did and become an eternal internet sensation.

“It’s a tough thing to do so you tip your hat to Reggie for what he meant to this organization. But that’s in the past and it’s a new basketball game right now. Hopefully, we don’t have to get to that situation,” Hill said.

Former Nets fan David West – he grew up in New Jersey like Vogel – remembers the night Reggie demolished the Knicks in rapid fire fashion.

“I do remember that game. I remember the radio station the next morning was just killing the Knicks. Just killing the Knicks. It was rough,” West recalled on the 18-year anniversary of the game. “I was rooting for the Knicks because I wasn’t a Bulls fan, and I knew the Knicks had the best shot of upsetting the Bulls. I rooted for the Knicks in that regard.“
