The Pacers’ New Year started with a long road trip, beginning in Chicago and ending here, in New York.
Indiana managed to defeat the Bulls and Cavs but lost big to Toronto and then to Boston last night. The Celtics’ 135 points were the most Indiana has given up to an opponent this season. It was the Celtics’ fifth game in a row with at least 30 assists as a team.
So this is the fifth game and rubber match of the road trip and the Pacers will be the favorites, however weary they may be.
Myles Turner hasn’t played in any of the last three games with a sore right shoulder. He is considered questionable for this game, though there hasn’t been much in the form of an injury report released yet.
After five consecutive covers, the Pacers have failed to cover in any of their last five. A long-awaited return home after three days off following this game should be enough motivation for Indiana to push through and play good team basketball against one of the worst teams in the entire league.
New York Knicks
Get this: since 2001, the Knicks’ team defense has been above average exactly once. That was in 2011-2012, the season Mike D’Antoni was fired and Mike Woodson took over to lead New York to an 18–6 finish.
New York lost at home on Christmas Day and has been on the road ever since. The Knicks have lost five out of six but got two days off following the most recent defeat at Golden State and, of course, return home to MSG for this one.
They couldn’t even cover seventeen points at Golden State, after covering a couple of games as double-digit underdogs earlier in the trip against Portland and Denver.
A Kristaps Porzingis update probably isn’t coming until the middle of February. So until then, all the Knicks’ fans have to look forward to is watching Kevin Knox fill it up on a nightly basis.
The Eastern Conference Rookie of the Month in December hit double-figures in twelve straight games at one point. He’s been a fixture in the starting lineup since the second week of December.
