By Brian Faith, Knicks Fan Since ‘93
In a dominating effort, the Knicks evened their best-of-seven series with the Pacers last night, 105-79. Carmelo Anthony led the Knicks with 32 points, and the Knicks used a 30-2 run to pull away in the fourth quarter. Pablo Prigioni helped ignite that run, and was rewarded with a chorus of ‘PAB-LO’ chants by the Garden faithful for his efforts.
Certainly, the individual efforts from Anthony and Prigioni cannot be understated, but it was team defense and team rebounding that won this game for New York. The Knicks made several adjustments on both ends of the floor that allowed them to control the pace, and neutralize Roy Hibbert in the middle.
Here are Five Takeaways from Game Two.
