New York Knicks vs. Indiana Pacers Preview

However, the Knicks are coming off a win and they are 8-2 in their last 10 games. NBA lines have the Pacers as 5.5-home favorite with a total of 189.5.

In their last games the Knicks beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 91-75 and the Pacers beat the Houston Rockets 104-102.

This season the Knicks are 27-26 ATS with an O/U record of 20-33 and the Pacers are 24-28 ATS with an O/U record of 25-25-2.

The Knicks are in the 8th spot in the Eastern Conference with a 2 game lead over the Bucks, but can they hold on? Amare Stoudamire is out with a back injury and Lin-sanity is done for the season, as he is shelved with a knee injury.

With Lin and Stoudamire out Carmelo Anthony has to be THE guy tonight and J.R. Smith and Tyson Chandler have to take up the scoring slack like they did in the win over the Cavs when they combined for 34 points.

The reason the Knicks have turned things around is they have played great D. Under interim coach Mike Woodson they has allowed an average of 86.3 ppg in their last 11 games, as opposed to 96.5 ppg before that. [soliloquy id=”82219″]

Danny Granger (18.2 ppg) leads the Pacers in scoring, but in his last 2 games facing New York he has combined for 20 points on 30% shooting.

One key match up in this game is down low with Pacers’ 2nd leading scorer C Roy Hibbert (12.9 ppg 8.8 rpg) facing Tyson Chandler (11.1 ppg 9.7 rpg).

This season the Knicks are only 9-16 away from the Big Apple while the Pacers are 16-7 at home. It will be hard for the Knicks to hold on to the 8th spot in the East since 8 of their last 13 games of the season are on the road.

The Knicks have won both of their games against the Pacers this season including their last one in Indiana.

In some betting trends for this Eastern Conference match up the Knicks are 10-2 ATS in their last 12 games overall, 3-8 ATS in their last 11 road games, and they have an Under record of 7-2 in their last 9 games.

The Pacers are 4-11 ATS in their last 15 games as a home favorite, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games vs. a team with a winning S.U. record, and they have an Over record of 5-2 in their last 7 games.

Jason’s Pick: The Knicks have covered the spread in 5 of their last 6 games facing the Pacers in Indiana, but that trend will not continue. The Pacers will take advantage of the shorthanded Knicks and win and cover tonight.
