Pacers Final Score: Pacers halt Knicks 82-71

Joe Robbins

Indiana took over the glass for the Game 3 victory, leading the series 2-1.

The Indiana Pacers dominated the glass en route to a comfortable Game 3 victory over the New York Knicks, limiting the effectiveness of the Knicks on the offensive end. The Pacers led throughout the game, gradually adding to their lead throughout the second half. Indiana wasn't explosive offensively, shooting just 35%, but they didn't need to be the way they were defending and rebounding the ball, holding New York to 35.2% and winning the rebounding battle by 13.

Roy Hibbert led the Pacers with a 24 point, 12 rebound double double, frustrating the Knicks and being the only consistent offensive threat. The Knicks were willing to give the Pacers every three pointer they wanted, as Indiana took 33, hitting 10. On the other end, Indiana held New York to just 3-11 from three point range. George Hill had 17 points, including five three pointers. Paul George had 14 points, eight rebounds, and eight assists and David West had an 11 & 12 double double. Carmelo Anthony was the only Knick in double figures, scoring 21.
