5-24 from deep and sloppy defense as the Knicks drop second straight.
The New York Knicks traveled to the Gainbridge Fieldhouse to face the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday. At 5-2, the Knicks were coming off a deflating defeat to the Raptors in which they surrendered 38 points in the third quarter.
The 2-6 Pacers had just won 131-118 against the Spurs. While no offensive juggernaut, they scored 78 points in the first half against San Antonio. With two losses by one point and one by three, their record could easily have been 5-3.
Records can misleading, friends. I knew this game would be close. I didn’t expect the Knicks to never have a lead, though. Yeah, it was that kind of night.
