The New York Knicks are a disappointment again this season. The team is currently out of stars and help is wanted on the roster. The Knicks are one of a few NBA teams struggling with ownership and coaching staff. Indiana is trending in the opposite direction. The Pacers are 3-2 over their last five, and recently took down the Boston, 97-91.
The last time the Knicks and Pacers took the court against each other, was this season, on December 4th. The Pacers handled the Knicks by 18 points. The season series is tied at 1-1.
New York Knicks
The New York Knicks are one of the worst teams in the NBA. The team came into the year with the expectations of challenging for the playoffs. That all came to an end, when Kristaps Porzingis when down with a torn ACL. The team has played dejected since his injury.
Porzingis was the Knicks main attraction, and only hope at making the playoffs this season. He was averaging 22 points and 6.6 rebounds per game this year. Hard to duplicate his size and shooting ability. Enes Kanter is also out for New York. He is averaging 14 points and 10.6 rebounds per game this year.
The sad thing for the Knicks is, they can’t attract anyone to even play at the Mecca of all basketball Arena’s in the NBA. Aside from Porzingis, New York features five other players who average double figures. Tim Hardaway Jr, has developed into an almost All Star type of role for the Knicks.
Overall, the Knicks do have talent. The team just can’t seem to stay out of a negative light. They have lost five straight games, and recently lost to the Raptors, 113-88. New York was competative through the first quarter, then seemed to quit on coach Jeff Hornacek.
As New York continues to start the tanking process, look for them to be the most talked about non playoff relevant team in the NBA this year.
The Indiana Pacers are relevant. The team would be in the playoffs if the season were over today. Victor Oladipo, is an All Star this year, and leads his team in points per game this season. Oladipo is averaging a shade over 24 points per game this year. He brings it one both sides or the floor, and should be the NBA’s most improved player.
The Pacers went into Boston, and beat a Celtics team that was 21-8 at home, before beating them. Indiana shot 44.6 percent from the floor and 25 percent from long distance in the win. Not overwhelming numbers, but the stat of the night, was the Pacers rebounding ability. They out rebounded Boston, 64 to 45. which led to the win.
Look for the Pacers to be ready to go tonight against the Knicks. New York is going to be intimidated in this matchup. The Pacers are 19-11 at home this season. Indiana demolished the Knicks in their most recent meeting, 115-97. Thaddeaus Young had 20 points.

Free New York Knicks vs. Indiana Pacers NBA Prediction:
The New York Knicks, are going to have a hard time forgetting how badly they were beaten by Indiana in December. Kristaps Porzingis did not play in the most recent meeting against Indiana.
The Pacers are clearly the much better team taking the court tonight. Indiana is playing well, and looks like a team that can make some noise in the East this season. Oladipo might drop 40 in this one.
