Pacers roll to 115-97 win over Knicks

Pacers roll to 115-97 win over Knicks

If Porzingis does not play, the Pacers will obviously not be the sieve-like team that gave up 70 points in the paint to the Raptors, but they can strive to get closer to 40 since they are 6-2 when they allow 42 or fewer paint points.

Without Porzingis patrolling the paint, Vucevic thrived in his matchup with Kanter, who recently missed three games with a back injury. "So he's getting evaluated and we'll probably find out more", Jeff Hornacek said. The deficit was 13 in the first quarter, then 29 in the second, then 38 in the third. IN scored the first 12 points of the third quarter to push the lead to 78-40 and led 95-65 after three quarters.

The Knicks had a high point of three games over.500 when they were 10-7, but they lost three straight to fall back to.500 and after beating Miami when Porzingis went down Wednesday in the opening minutes, they fell to Orlando Sunday and now can see in the distance a schedule coming soon that already portended disaster.

"We did well. We fought back", Beasley added.

How It Happened:The Pacers jumped out of the gate in the first quarter with a 31-19 lead.

The Knicks used an 11-4 run to pull within 3 at 99-96 on a 3-pointer by Jarrett Jack with 27 seconds left. Orlando led by eight with 1:51 remaining but NY cut it to three on three occasions before the Magic iced the win and snapped a seven-game road losing streak. "In the fourth quarter, we needed to lose the game, so I just kept up my aggressiveness until the end of the game". "That was there again for us tonight".

Porzingis (ankle/illness) will not play in Monday's game against the Pacers, Al Iannazzone of Newsday reports. NY has gone 0-3 in his absence this season. The Magic defeated Oklahoma City, 121-108, on November 29 to snap a nine-game losing streak.

Depending on the results of potentially season-making (or season-breaking) test results, Tim Hardaway Jr. may be out a while. Without their two top scorers and on the second of a back-to-back, the Knicks lacked the offensive firepower to match IN and the much-needed defensive stops.
