UPDATE: Bruno's Inside the Game LIVE is up. T.J. and Danny are starting.

When the Knicks used to come to town in the the '90s, it was easy to think, time to buckle up because the game was going to be intense and tough for 48 minutes. Ten years later, you still need to buckle up for a Knicks visit but that's because of the pace both the Pacers and Knicks prefer to play these days.

The Knicks have won two in a row and five of their last six, so the Pacers will need their best effort to extend their home win streak to nine. Danny Granger will be a game-time decision and even if he plays, probably will run for limited minutes.

Here are the Matchups. T.J. Ford appears set to take over his starting position again.
