Melo pumped up against Pacers m

“I think we played with a sense of urgency, knowing what was at stake, facing elimination on our home court,’’ Anthony said. “We played like we really wanted it. This is probably the best game we’ve played throughout the whole series as for effort. One of those nights we had to will ourselves to win and did that.’’

”Tonight it was just one of them days where you just got to leave it out there on the basketball court,” Carmelo Anthony said. – foxsports

“We can’t find our shots but we’re still going to take those shots,’’ Anthony said. “We’re still confident from that aspect. We didn’t shoot the ball very well, but we made shots at the critical times and controlled the game.’’

“It’s encouraging to just see J.R. focus in, and just put everything else to the side,” said Carmelo Anthony.nypost

J.R. Smith jumps

“I still didn’t shoot my best, but it always helps to come home and play in front of these fans,” Smith said. “Hopefully the little bit of rhythm I did get carries me over.”

Smith laughed off RiRi Instagram comments after the game,

“I’m not worried about Instagram,” he said. “ I’m worried about the playoffs.” – nypost

elo and the Knicks fought hard and willed a way (with their backs against and against adversity) to stay alive! The NY Knicks beat the Indiana Pacers 85-75 last night for Game 5 of the Eastern Conference semi-final series! The Knicks still trail the series (3-2), but now extended the series to game 6, back in Indy, and have a chance to take the series altogether now! Melo led the Knicks with 28 points, J.R. Smith stepped up with 13 points after Ri Ri-hanna called him out for partying too much on Instagram, Raymond Felton came back with a strong second half to finish with 12 points and Chris Copeland hooped up 13 points! The Knicks have to take care of Copeland, as he may go as a free-agent if not careful with his stock rising! Check out the highlight reel from the game below!
