Hello and welcome to the 2013 NBA Playoffs Game 2 between our New York Knicks and the Indiana Pacers
The Pacers have managed to steal game 1 from New York and cancel Knicks' home court advantage. It was a poor night for JR & Melo who went 14-43, while Tyson Chandler, former DPOY, had a lousy performance as well scoring just 4 points, rebounding the ball three times and getting fouled out.
With the first game taken, tonight's one is going to be a crucial! If New York loses this one too, chances of going into the EC finals dim to almost nothing. What we must focus on tonight is rebounding the ball better and involve more guys in the action. Isolating Melo and giving the ball to JR is simply not going to cut it. If these guys shoot more than half of the teams FGA and are not having a good day we can kiss this series goodbye.
