Miller 13th player to score 25,000 points

INDIANAPOLIS -- Indiana's Reggie Miller became the 13th
player in NBA history to score 25,000 points Wednesday night in the
Pacers 100-93 victory over San Antonio.

Miller, who is retiring after the season, entered the game
against San Antonio needing eight points to join the exclusive
club. It didn't take him long.
He scored six points in the first 5:13, then reached the
milestone, appropriately, by making two free throws with 2:08 left
in the first quarter. When the achievement was announced, fans
began chanting "Reg-gie, Reg-gie."
Miller, 39, finished with a game-high 21 points and now has
25,013 for his career. Jerry West is 12th on the all-time scoring
list with 25,192.
In 18 seasons with Indiana, Miller is the NBA's all-time leader
in 3-pointers (2,533) and is one of six players to log more than
47,000 minutes. He and Utah's John Stockton are the only players to record 47,000 minutes with one team.
