IC Cold Links: Pacers Have To Get Up Off Mat To Face Knicks At Home

After taking flight in Madison Square Garden on Friday night, the Indiana Pacers have to put up a fight on Saturday night when they face the New York Knicks again, this time at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

There really is nothing useful to take from the mess in the Garden last night that the Pacers can build on. They will definitely need to account for the perimeter trapping defense the Knicks threw at them that appeared to catch the guards off guard.

But the Pacers really need to ramp up their intensity, as David West mentioned after the game, the aggressive team usually has an advantage.

"They came out and were much more aggressive than we were," Pacers forward David West said. "We never matched their aggression. We never stood up to it."
