The Knicks find themselves in last chance saloon in Game 5, having fallen to 3-1 down to the Pacers, and facing elimination unless they will the next three games to take the series.
Prior to the playoffs many analysts thought that it would be the Knicks vs Miami in the conference finals, however, the Pacers are looking set to burst the New York bubble.
The Pacers have been killing the Knicks from behind the three point line in this series until now, and the Knicks will have to get tighter and get more pressure on the Pacers big players to cut out that threat.
Carmelo Anthony will need a massive game tonight, and will need the support of his teammates to take down a confident Indiana line up. In particular, the Knicks will have to find a way to get past the stern Indiana defense.
The Knicks will be hoping to replicate what they managed to do in Game 2 when they blew away the Pacers' defense, winning 105-79 with a hugely impressive display from Anthony, who scored 32 points. However, since then the pacers have beaten the Knicks comprehensively in the past two games to take a firm grip on the series.
The Knicks will have home advantage tonight, and will hope the Madison Square Garden crowd can inspire them to a win that can keep their conference final dream alive.
