Pacers Steal Game 1 Over Knicks In NY! [Video]

Melo blocked by Hibbert West

“You take out the X’s and O’s, they flat-out played harder than we did,’’ Anthony said. “They outplayed us and outworked us. Nothing else needs to be said about that.’’

“I thought they played harder than we did,” Knicks’ coach Mike Woodson said. “That was the difference. They did all the little things.’’ – nypost

Melo Knicks vs Pacers

“It’s a must-win and we have to look at it that way,” Kenyon Martin said.

“Melo has to wrestle and tussle with David West,” Martin said. “I don’t think he should have to do that, you know what I’m saying, from the beginning of the game. We got size over there that we can use to our advantage. But I’ll leave that for Woody and the coaching staff; that’s their decision. If he decides to go that way, great. If not, then we just gotta do what we gotta do.” – nydailynews

T

he NY Knicks were straight handled by the Indiana Pacers 102-95 in front a sold-out crowd at MSG last night! The Pacers protected the paint, and forced Melo and J.R. Smith into tough shots all night! Melo shot an awful 10-for-28 for 27 points with 11 boards, and J.R. Smith shot a rough 4-for-15 for 17 points! Pacers’ Lance Stephenson, a BK native, brought his A-game cleaning up the glass with 13 boards plus three steals, Roy Hibbert accounted for five blocks, and David West had 20 points and two blocks of his own! Tyson Chandler was boxed out the entire game accounting for only three boards, four points, and towards the end of the game he fouled out! The Knicks really need to stop messing around, and get it going and make it seem like this is the first trip to the second round in 13 years! Check out the highlight reel below!
