The Knicks have been the definition of free falling.
New York continues to plunge toward the bottom of the cellar as they hit the road to take on the Pacers.
Indiana sits tied for 5th, but just 0.5 game separates them from the 8th seeded Bulls right now as the Eastern Conference is just a cluster.
New York Knicks
The Knicks free fall has resulted in their coach getting fired and their star player becoming increasingly frustrated.
It should be noted though that Carmelo Anthony was at the center of trade rumors around the deadline. He does have a no trade clause and chose to publicly come out and say he wouldn’t waive it.
New York searches for just their 3rd win in 15 tries. They come in off one of their worst losses at MSG, as they fell to Toronto 122-95. The defense looked very minimal in terms of effort as they allowed 58 points in the paint and saw Toronto get many open looks en route to 53% shooting.
With the loss, New York is now 6.5 out of the 8 seed and Carmelo Anthony did not hide his feelings after the loss to Toronto. He said the team needed to short more effort and play a team game, rather than the individual game a lot of them are playing.
The Pacers have played well enough this team to put up fights against some of the top teams in the league.
However, they’re literally one loss away from falling from the 5th seed to the 8th seed. That’s just how tight this Eastern Conference is.
Indiana leads the pack of the bottom half of teams, but does only sit 2 games out of the 3 seed as well. With no room for error, it’s evident and important that they win these types of games, especially at home, as one bad losing streak could lead to a potential collapse.
The Pacers finished off their 3 game road trip going 2-1 and nearly stole all three, but fell to Miami in overtime in the trip finale. Paul George played a big role in the road trip as he averaged 24.3 points per game.
Indiana won all 4 head to head matches last season.

Free New York Knicks vs. Indiana Pacers NBA Prediction:
The Knicks are just playing with no confidence right now. This team has played very selfish and one dimensional basketball all season and with the Pacers dominating the head to head series, look for the homecourt to play a role here as Indiana roles them over.
