Miller played his entire 18-year career for Indiana, and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2012.
The Warriors are 22-0 and bring a 26-game win streak into Indiana tonight.
Miller doesn't believe Golden State will make it 27 straight.
"It (the streak) does end tonight," Miller declared on The Dan Patrick Show. "I know people listening or watching are going to say, 'Well of course he's gonna say the Pacers.' I look at the matchups and on this show, I've told you that this league is a copycat league. And the Warriors are the best small-ball team in the league ... Frank Vogel came into this year saying, 'We're gonna do the same thing. We're gonna put Paul George at the four.'
"And other than Steph Curry, Paul George has been the best player, and I think when they go small, and they've got C.J. Miles -- nobobdy is even talking about C.J. Miles and what he has done for the Pacers this year -- with George Hill, Monta Ellis, Miles, George at four, and Ian Mahinmi -- that is a lineup that can compete, certainly at home ... I really do believe that's why the Pacers are going to win tonight."
Curry leads the league in scoring at 32.4 points per game, while George is third at 27.6.
Curry is third in 3-point percentage (47.2). George is eighth (45.4).
Curry is first in 3-pointers made (116). George is third (64).
When it comes to the supporting casts: Miles is averaging 15.6 points while shooting 43.5 percent from deep. Klay Thompson is averaging 17.2 points while making 42 percent of his treys.
Curry's former teammate, Monta Ellis, is registering 11.7 points and 4.8 assists per contest, to go along with a 41.8 shooting percentage.
George Hill, who will probably be tasked with trying to defend Curry, is averaging 12.8 points, 3.7 assists and 1.5 steals per night.
The Warriors lead the league in 3-pointers attempted per game (30.9).
Golden State is tops in 3-point percentage (43.7), while Indiana is second (40.1).
The Warriors are fifth in defensive rating (97.6). The Pacers are sixth (98.1)
Golden State is 22-0. Indiana is 12-7.
"I'm not discrediting what Golden State is doing," Miller added. "These dudes are playing out of their minds ... they're playing lights out.
"... But the buck stops in Indiana."
