All these months later and the Indiana Pacers are more efficient, intelligent and tenacious when it matters while the Knicks remain adept at imploding — mentally and physically — with the game on the line.
The Knicks kept offseason knee surgeries on Amar’e Stoudemire and Iman Shumpert a secret. Add another one to the list. Metta World Peace said he had his left knee drained on Monday and the day before the Knicks played the Spurs on Nov. 10.
While there’s all this talk around here about how the Knicks will never beat the Miami Heat because Carmelo Anthony will never get past LeBron James, it might be time to amend that statement to include Paul George and Indiana, as well.
Paul George believes some players have a killer instinct and others don’t. It’s something guys are born with, he says, and he believes he’s had it, but didn’t know how to use it.
The sight of Paul George and the Pacers brought out some fight and fire in the Knicks that they haven't shown much this season. Ultimately, they had nothing to show for it.

When you’re talking about trading Iman Shumpert, the fear among some in the Knicks fan base — and the organization — is that he will eventually develop into a great player. Shumpert has shown us flashes in the past. Remember his otherworldly shooting performance in Game 6 against Indiana last May? What about his dominant showing in Game 6 against Boston? He seemed to make every big play down the stretch when it felt like the Celtics were on the verge of an historic comeback.
Carmelo Anthony had a few positive things to say about the Knicks after their overtime loss to Indiana. But he couldn’t ignore the bottom line: The Knicks are 3-8, have lost four straight overall and six straight at home. For Anthony, that doesn’t sit right.”You just feel like you’re stuck in the mud right now,” he said. “But we’ll get out of it.”The Knicks haven’t lost six straight at home since Feb. 2010. That was a year before Anthony came to town in a blockbuster, three-team trade with the Nuggets.
NEW YORK — Not much is going right for Iman Shumpert right now. He’s involved in a new trade rumor seemingly every day. He’s struggling with consistency on both ends of the floor. And, as if that isn’t bad enough, he committed a cardinal sin late in Wednesday’s game that led to another New York Knicks’ loss. But at the end of a rough night, Shumpert received a bit of a boost from one of the most important members of the Knicks organization.
