Open Game Thread #82: Pacers vs. Knicks

Donnie Walsh and the New York Knicks return to the Fieldhouse for the Indiana Pacers last game of the regular season. A good crowd should be on hand for fan appreciation night. Hopefully those fans will show some appreciation for effort many Pacer players put forth all year. Regardless of the circumstances they never gave in. They may not have played defense too well but at least they never quit trying.

Here's Bruno's Scouting Report which pays tribute to the huge games Danny Granger has put together lately. Jeff Foster and Travis Diener are day-to-day, hopefully both will be able to play.

For a great Knicks' perspective, check out Knickerblogger and Posting and Toasting.

Here's what the efficiency numbers say:

Team Pace Off.Eff. Def.Eff.
IND 95.9(3rd) 107.8(18th) 109.0(15th)
NYK 90.1(15th) 105.6(24th) 114.0(29th)
