New York Knicks vs Indiana Pacers takes place in the NBA Playoffs Game 4 on Tuesday night with the Knicks knowing another loss tonight would put them on the brink. The game is scheduled to tip off at 7 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
The Knicks have to once again go back to the drawing board tonight and figure out how to take down the Indiana defensive unit. In Game 1 and Game 3 the Knicks' offense looked so lackluster and out of ideas that their players must have been extremely disheartened.
Game 2 was completely different however, and New York need more of the same from that game tonight if they are to pull this series back to 2-2.
Game 3 was probably even more disappointing that Game 1's loss for the Knicks, and following the encouraging win in Game 2 expectations were that they could push on and take the lead in the series in Game 3. However, the way they capitulated and how easily the Pacers' defense held off the toothless Knicks' offense was embarrassing,
Now Carmelo Anthony and his squad need to turn things on their head again otherwise they will find themselves 3-1 down and on the verge of being dumped out of the playoffs at the semifinal stage.
The Pacers were the NBA's best defense efficiency-wise through the regular season and that has been evident in this series. Their efficient defense has made the Knicks' team look out of sorts and ineffective. New York will certainly need a big improvement on the lowly 71 points they managed in Game 3 – that would have been the Knick's lowest score in the regular season.
