The 2002–03 NBA season was the Pacers' 27th season in the National Basketball Association, and 36th season as a franchise. The Pacers got off to a fast start winning 14 of their first 16 games. However, the team struggled losing 12 of 13 games between February 16 and March 12. Late in the season, the Pacers signed free agent All-Star point guard Tim Hardaway, as the Pacers finished second in the Central Division with a 48–34 record. Head coach Isiah Thomas, Jermaine O'Neal and Brad Miller represented the Eastern Conference during the 2003 NBA All-Star Game. That game was perhaps known as a storybook ending for Michael Jordan, but O'Neal ruined the moment, fouling Western Conference All-Star Kobe Bryant, who attempted a 3-pointer. Bryant hit 2 of 3 free throws to send the game into overtime. The West won 155–145. In the first round of the playoffs, the Pacers lost in six games to the 6th-seeded Boston Celtics.
