The New York Knicks will take on the Indiana Pacers on Sunday at lunchtime in a match up that sees them attempt to bounce back from their first defeat of the season. The game is scheduled to start at 12 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream via the link posted below.
The Knicks come into this game with a record of 6-1 after suffering a frustrating first loss of the season on the road at Memphis. They will be looking to show their character by getting back on a winning run with victory today at Madison Square Garden, where they have won all three of their home games so far by a double digit margin.
They will be coming up against the Pacers, who with a record of 4-6 have struggled to find their groove and have not been effective offensively as they would have liked.
The Knicks had been the only remaining unbeaten side in the NBA going into Friday's game, but ended up losing 95-105 - their worst points scored in any game this season as well as their most points conceded in any match up this season so far.
Things could have been very different for the Knicks on Friday if they had not gone through a bad patch in the third quarter. New York were within three points early in the third when they allowed the Grizzlies to go on a 19-1 run as Carmelo Anthony, Rasheed Wallace and coach Mike Woodson were all tagged with technicals - that ultimately cost the Knicks the game.
Point guard Jason Kidd has said, "We tried to do it individually instead of just moving the ball. Guys got great looks and they didn't go in. Emotion is part of the game. For the whole team, this is a test we can learn from," according to NBA.com.
Meanwhile the Pacers have begun to see some promising signs, and on Friday managed to claim a 103-83 home win over Dallas. That was only the second time they had reached the 100 mark this season so far, and they will have to be in similar form today if they are to become the first team this season to go on the road to Madison Square Garden and gain a win.
Indiana's only trip to New York last season was a 100-115 loss on March 16.
