Josh Hart made sure Reggie Miller knew Garden fans were chanting “f–k you” at him


The profane chants, backed by about 30 years of practice from Knicks fans, were certainly loud enough for Reggie Miller to hear.

But Josh Hart just wanted to make sure.

“I don’t know if you heard, but I think they said, ‘F–k you,’” Hart told Miller at the end of the Knicks’ Game 2 win over the Pacers on Wednesday, not long after Knicks fans chanted: “F—You, Reggie.”

Asked about the exchange in the Knicks locker room, Hart said, “I wanted to make sure he heard what the fans were chanting. I just wanted to make sure.”

Warning, adult language

Miller, the former Knicks tormentor and Pacers legend, flew to New York as a late addition to the TNT broadcast for Game 2.

He seemed to embrace the revival of his villain status, calling himself the “Bogeyman” and playfully noting during the broadcast, “People say, ‘Aren’t you worried about going back to New York City and calling a game?’ No. I own this city. I own this building! So why would I worry about walking there?

Miller may not have been concerned, but he was serenaded.

Shai Gilgeous Alexander, Luka Doncic and Giannis Antetokounmpo rounded out the top 4 in that order.

Brunson, who led the Knicks to 50 wins with a 28.7-point average, received three second-place votes, four third-place votes, 28 fourth-place votes and 32 fifth-place votes.

He defeated Jayson Tatum, who finished fifth.

Still, finishing in the top five is a good sign that Brunson has a shot at making First Team All-NBA, a spot the Knick hasn’t held since Patrick Ewing.

The NBA referees, a prominent and closely watched group in the playoffs, held a watch party for Wednesday’s Game 2 from the league’s replay center.

The purpose of the viewing party, which aired on X, formerly Twitter, was for fans to “gain a new perspective, learn the rules and interact with the officials themselves.”

In other words, amid a wave of criticism and controversial appeals, officials are trying to explain and perhaps even humanize themselves.

The Knicks were at the center of multiple issues, including admissions of errors in the two-minute reports that both hurt and helped New York in the series against the Sixers.

In Game 1 on Monday against the Pacers, the Knicks were aided by an errant call on a kicked ball (the ball hit Indiana’s Aaron Nesmith’s hand, not his foot), and a moving screen on Myles Turner that went too weak supposed to chime in. a big moment.
