Although the game was close, as the Knicks never trailed by more than 11 points – and even tied the score early in the fourth quarter, New York struggled to finish in the paint.

Enes Kanter led the Knicks with 20 points and 15 rebounds and was the only Knick to shoot over 50% from the field. This was also his 20th double-double game of the season. Besides him, only Courtney Lee and Luke Kornet made half of their field goal attempts and they totalized just 12 points off the bench. The rest of the team struggled.

Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 19 points Emmanuel Mudiay finished with 18 buckets while Kevin Knox added 15.

“We started holding the ball and that really bit us. We had like four straight turnovers and then Emmanuel missed that dunk, so that combination of that stretch opened up the game for them.”

For the Pacers, Victor Oladipo scored 26 points, Myles Turner followed with 24 and Domantas Sabonis contributed with 13 off the bench. Former Knick, Doug McDermott logged 22 minutes and scored 9 points shooting 3-5 from the three.

The Knicks (9-22) played without Allonzo Trier, Mitchell Robinson and Lance Thomas. Trey Burke returned after missing the previous 6 games but shot 1-7 from the field, finishing with just 3 points.
