This series opened up at Madison Square Garden where the Pacers stole game one by the score of 102-95. The Knicks then bounced back with a dominant effort at home as they win 105-79 to knot the series at 1-1. Then the series headed to Indiana where the Pacers took control with two straight wins by doubt digits to take the 3-1 series lead. New York was terrible offensively playing at Indiana in this series as they put up just 71 points in game three and a mere 82 points in game four. The series swung back to Madison Square Garden in New York for game five where the Knicks prevailed by the score of 85-75 as a -5 point bet favorite. New York draws some good fortune in game six as Indiana was without leading scorer George Hill as he tries and gets back into the lineup following his concussion suffered back in game four. The Knicks took advantage of Hill’s absence from the court as they allow Indiana to their lowest point total in these playoffs. The Knick held the Pacers to just 36.2% shooting in Game 5 and gave up 34 points at the half on Thursday. In their game six victory New York got 28 points and six rebounds from Carmelo Anthony as he connects on 12 of 28 shots. Anthony was held scoreless in the fourth quarter in the two games played at Indiana in this series. J.R. Smith has had a poor playoff for the New York Knicks. He is hitting just 33.8% from the field in the playoffs and in the 2012-13 season a year ago Smith was inefficient with just making 31.6% from the floor in postseason play. When you look at the past four playoff season Smith has shot no better than 36.8% from the field during that span of games.
