Wednesday, October 31 finds the Indiana Pacers playing the New York Knick in the Mecca. Indiana enters 2018-19 looking to build upon a strong finish last season while the Knicks position themselves for a year of learning and an active offseason to position themselves for the future.
Last season the Pacers won two out of the three of the season series between the teams. The Knicks hold the all-time record having bested the Pacers 91 of their 174 matches.
Through seven games this season the Pacers are a game above .500, but are demonstrating a similar penchant to deliver balanced games on either side of the hardwood.
Indiana’s bench let them down in the loss to the Blazers Monday while each of the Pacers starters scored in double digits. Most Improved player Victor Oladipo led the way with 21 points, 9 rebounds, 7 assists and a steal.
The Pacers are gritty with several in the rotation willing to sacrifice for the betterment of the team. That mindset finds Indiana ranking 10th in defense.
Indiana also aren’t afraid to do things their way as they run the slowest pace (97.58) in the Association and attempt the second fewest 3-pointers (22.7).
In spite of their diversion from the norm they are successful ranking fifth offensively. To wit, Indy rank first in perimeter percentage (44.6%) and second in field goal percent which means Indy focus on best opportunity shots.
No injuries to report for the Pacers.
New York Knicks
With cornerstone talent Kristaps Porzingis expected out til sometime next year the Knicks are in what could be best termed as a wait and see year. New Head Coach David Fizdale has the season to assess the talent on the roster and grow his youthful assets.
The latter being rookies Kevin Knox, Mitchell Robinson and the surprising Allonzo Trier. New York aren’t bereft of talent as Tim Hardaway Jr. and double-double constant Enes Kanter demonstrate. But, without Zinger it’s doubtful the season will result in anything other than a trip to the lottery.
This thinking is augmented by the squads placement in the key categories: offense (26th), defense (16th) and net (25th) rating.
The Knicks big moves are expected to come this offseason when a robust free agent market will offer ample stars who the Knicks will no doubt pursue.
Emmanuel Mudiay (ankle is questionable to play Wednesday against the Pacers. Kevin Knox (ankle), Courtney Lee (neck spasms) and Porzingis are all on the injured list.
