New York, NY- Pacers 102 Knicks 95 One thing that is very apparent after Sunday afternoon’s Eastern Conference Semi-Final game 1 between the Indiana Pacers and the New York Knicks is that this will be an extremely physical series. And the other thing that is for sure is that the Knicks better be ready to play to that tune. The Indiana Pacers roughed up the Knicks at Madison Square Garden 102-95 to take a 1-0 series lead and seize home-court advantage. The Knicks were manhandled in the paint by get out rebounded 44-30.
In what was another bad shooting night for the Knicks, Carmelo Anthony shot 10-28 and scored 27 points. If the Knicks intend on winning this series Carmelo has to hit at a higher percentage and the Knicks have to expect the Pacers to play physical defense on very possession. The Pacers and Knicks will face off in game 2 on Tuesday at 7pm at MSG.
