The New York Knicks have played outstanding basketball since the calendar changed to 2014 and they hit the road to face the Indiana Pacers. The Knicks and Pacers will get things started from Indiana at 7PM Eastern Time and TNT TV will provide the coast to coast broadcast. The New York Knicks got off to a very poor start this season. The team was hit with injuries early as center Tyson Chandler missed extended action. The team had trouble adjusting with their big man sidelined. Sixth man J.R. Smith has had questionable behavior on the court and has shown a lack of professionalism. Upper management has shaken up this team with trade rumors swirling and suddenly we have seen a more focused and attentive club as they have piled up wins in recent games. The Knicks now sit in the eighth seed in the Eastern conference entering Tuesday’s action and are just 4 ½ games behind the fourth seeded Atlanta Hawks. The Indiana Pacers hold a 2 ½ game lead at press time over the Miami Heat. The Pacers are extremely focused this regular season to win home court advantage in the Eastern conference. Indiana doesn’t want to face another game 7 situation on the road at Miami and we see the sense of urgency this regular season from this club.

The doubleheader game will involve two Western conference schools as the Oklahoma City Thunder will hit the road to face the Houston Rockets. The teams will get things going from Houston at 9:30PM Eastern Time and TNT will broadcast. Oklahoma City is trying to cope with the loss of Russell Westbrook after he left the lineup with knee surgery. OKC has had more difficulty in recent games in their road contest. The defense has also slipped since losing their point guard. Many underestimated that impact of Russell Westbrook on the defensive end of the court. Houston will return home in a back to back spot here after closing out a four game road trip at New Orleans on Wednesday.
