Pacers Final Score: Knicks hold off Pacers 85-75

Debby Wong-USA TODAY Sports

Indiana couldn't overcome their own miscues to close out the Knicks.

The common theme from Indiana Pacers' Game 5 loss in New York was all about mental errors. Missed free throws throughout the game, bad turnovers late, and foul trouble hindered any and every Pacers comeback. The Pacers remained within striking distance all night despite it and completely gave the close out game away. Indiana got news before the game George Hill would be out due to a concussion he suffered early in Game 4, and it didn't help Indiana's cause as the Knicks would lead the entire way.

Paul George led the Pacers with 23. David West had 17 & 10. Carmelo Anthony had 28 to lead all scorers. The Pacers were 19-33 from the free throw line and shot just 30% in the first half. Turnovers became an issue late, as Indiana would finish with 19, including turnovers on solid possessions that could've put the Pacers within two possessions. Game 6 will be Saturday night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
