Here we go!
Win and the Knicks will get to play an epic Game 7 on Monday night, lose and, well, you know.
Pacers starting point guard George Hill has been cleared to play. It will be fascinating to see how he deals with contact, or whether the Knicks will shy away from hitting him hard, fearing that the refs will call any contact with Hill tight.
Just like Game 5, the key for the Knicks is to take an early lead. The Pacers are not good at coming back. The team leading the game entering the fourth has won every game this series, so an early lead is very important (especially in terms of taking the crowd out of the game).
Let’s go Knicks!
