Halftime score: Pacers lead Knicks 63-48

Carmelo Anthony came out firing in the first quarter, scoring 18 points and leading the New York Knicks to a high scoring 31-30 advantage, but despite falling behind early, the Indiana Pacers slowly pushed their way back into the game. Despite Anthony's success, his supporting cast didn't offer much of anything, giving the Pacers the opportunity to take the lead in the second quarter. The Pacers dominated the game inside for a 26-8 advantage as the Pacers shot over 52% en route to a season high 63 first half points, holding New York to just 17 in the second quarter, two from Anthony.

Lance Stephenson is one of three double figure scorers for Indiana with 17 points as Paul George follows up with 15. Roy Hibbert had 11 points and five rebounds, showcasing his defensive presence throughout the second quarter, opening up opportunities for Indiana on the offensive end.
