    Game Thread 2013 Playoffs - Round 2 Game 3 / Knicks @ Pacers - 05/11 8:00 pm





    Hello and welcome to the 2013 NBA Playoffs Game 3 between our New York Knicks and the Indiana Pacers



    The New York Knicks fought back in game two and after an incredible fourth quarter, not only did they tied the series but they did it in an unforgettable manner, keeping Indiana scoreless for almost 8 minutes.



    The series now moves to Indiana where New York will have to stand against a much stronger team and a more enthusiastic fan base than the one they found in Boston. With Stoudemire cleared to play, the Knicks should improve their scoring which might be a factor against a Pacer team dominated by big guys who play an amazing defense but with Amar'e being sidelined for the last two months, it's difficult to say how much of an impact will his return make right away. However, with JR's struggle lately and Melo's low FGA percentage, STAT's return might be if anything a boost of confidence. Hopefully.

    Other facts that happened on this day:
    In 1984: Knicks force a Game 7 in the Eastern Conference Semifinals, defeating Boston 106-104 at the Garden, behind Bernard King’s 44 points. New York holds on to the victory after watching Boston cut a 13-point deficit to two with :28 to play and then miss several attempts at tying the game in the final seconds.

    In 1994: Knicks grab a 2-0 series lead over the Chicago Bulls in the Eastern Conference Semifinals with a 96-91 win at Madison Square Garden. New York held the Bulls to 4-16 shooting in the fourth quarter. Patrick Ewing scores a game high 26 points.

    OK Im feeling confident we can take atleast one game in Indiana within the next two (3 & 4) and take back home court. Excited to see how the Knicks come out tonight.

    Early welcome back to Amare......it is time.....LETS GO!!!!!

    Bulls lost @ home mainly due their FT's and heat floops
    GSW lost to 4 rings spurs

    so i hope Knicks will win game 3

    i hope Knicks will go back home as minimum 2-2.

    J.R. Smith did not attend today's shoot around due to an unknown illness. Knicks listing him as questionable

    I feel confident as well. I think Game 1 was a sobering reminder to the Knicks of how bad they can be when they lose focus. They came out strong in Game 2 and showed that their lock down quarters was not just Boston's bad offense. The Knicks defense needs to be stingy like it was in hte 4th quarter of Game 2 and they need to simply move the ball. The iso isn't working unless it's melo charging to the hoop.

    I am excited to see if Amare can bring 10-15 good low post minutes.

    As bad as JR is shooting you still want him in the game. Huge loss if he's out.

    Woody said JR had 102 fever and if he played it would be in limited minutes. I would say the Knicks can't count on JR tonight, other guys are going to have to step up.

    All I want is HOF Jason Kidd running the show in both games in Indiana .. in Kidd's NBA career its never been about scoring, with Kidd its always been about his guidance to lift his teammates confidence & skills in a game.

    I also want the uptempo running Stat in this game to run with Shump for some lob passes from Kidd & Prig for easy fastbreak points.
    I dont want Melo & JR slowing down the tempo for 48 minutes of the game -vs- a bigman Pacers team.

    If we run the Pacers the next 3 games with a 9-man rotation we will be in the ECF...

    Kidd can't even hit a shot which means its like having 4 vs 5. We need some offense and Kidd needs to hit the open jumper or else we should just have Pablo take his minutes because Pablo is the same player but more athletic and is consistent with the outside shot

    Who knows maybe the game might be easier for our boys without JR, the way he's been brick laying of late.

    Hoping STAT will have a big night (especially on rebounds) and prove all the doubters wrong. Crosses fingers*
