Carmelo Anthony led the Knicks with 32 points, nine rebounds, three assists and two steals. Iman Shumpert had 15 points and six rebounds. Raymond Felton had 14 points and Kenyon Martin came off the bench to score 10 points. Since J.R. Smith received the sixth man of the year award his play has spiraled downward. He scored eight points off the bench only making one of his seven attempted field goals. The Knicks shot 49 percent from the field compared to Indiana’s 45 percent night.

 

Paul George led the Pacers with 20 points, but he also had seven turnovers in the night and attempted nine shots, but only made three. There were only two other players in double figures on the night George Hill with 12 points and David West with 13 points. More production is necessary for the Pacers to win this series.

 

The best of seven game series between the Indiana Pacers and the New York Knicks will continue on Saturday in Indiana. The winner of this series will move on to the western conference finals to face either Oklahoma or Memphis.
