An Eastern conference showdown that takes place Tuesday night between two teams who are right in the middle of the pack in the playoff hunt.
Both teams come into this game struggling as of late and really would like to get a win in this game.
This is the first match up between the two teams this year. Indiana swept the season series last year, winning all three games.
The Indiana Pacers have had trouble being consistent on the offensive end of the court. In the last three games they have only scored over 96 points once in the last three games.
Not uprisings the only game they won in that stretch was the one they scored over 96 points in. They have a lot of good players on the court, but they seem to be me first and not team first.
The Pacers are led by Paul George who is averaging 21.8 points per game and 7 rebounds a game. As good has he has been playing he just hasn’t looked the same ever since he had that devastating leg injury.
The Pacers are playing against the Washington Wizards on Monday night so that’s another thing to keep a close eye on.
The Pacers are 1-5 on the second night of a back to back. They are giving up 116.3 points in those games, so they need to really step up their defense if they want to win against the Knicks.
On the season the Pacers are 4-10 on the road this season.
New York Knicks
The Knicks come into this game really struggling as of late. They have lost their last three games and haven’t seemed to play any defense over that stretch of games.
Derrick Rose has missed the last two games due to back spasms which has been a factor in why the Knicks have been playing so bad.
Rose is expected back in this game and that is a big boost for a Knicks team that really needs a win to get back on the right track.
Carmelo Anthony is still the leader of the team but it’s turning into Kristaps Porzingis team right before our eyes.
On the season he is averaging 20 points, 7.7 rebounds and 1.8 blocks per game.
The Knicks will be the fresher team in this game so expect them to push the pace early and often.
On the season the Knicks are 9-4 at home.

Free Indiana Pacers vs. New York Knicks NBA Prediction:
On paper these are two evenly matched teams, and should be a very close game. I give the advantage to the Knicks because they won’t be coming off the second end of a back to back.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Pacers +5.5
I expect the game to be close, but the Knicks pull it out in the end.
