Pacers Final Score: Pacers beat Knicks 106-99, win series 4-2

Andy Lyons

Indiana held off a furious Knicks comeback to clinch a series victory.

The Indiana Pacers seemed in complete control in the third quarter, but the New York Knicks had one last gasp in them, hitting four straight three pointers to tie the game up, as Iman Shumpert hit five three pointers in the second half to give the Knicks a brief lead. But Lance Stephenson was the key to Indiana's success down the stretch, as the Pacers made the plays in Winning Time to clinch a 4-2 series victory.

Stephenson had a career high 25 points on 9-13 shooting to go with 10 rebounds. Stephenson was one of Indiana's three 20 point scorers. Hibbert had 21 & 12, including five blocks, none bigger than a huge stuff at the rim against Carmelo Anthony. Paul George had 23 points on 9-15 shooting, but struggled from the free throw line, missing all four of his fourth quarter attempts. Anthony finished with 39. The Pacers clamped down down the stretch, and once again held a sizable free throw advantage, 46-18. The Pacers will open the Eastern Conference Finals on Wednesday against the Miami Heat in South Beach.
