Here are a few links of interest from the Pacers loss in which Nate Robinson kept all five boroughs in stiches:
- Bruno's Inside the Game LIVE and Postgame Report.
Mike Wells reports on the missed opportunity for the Pacers and Jim O'Brien's frustration with the lack of execution on the late out of bounds play.
"We ran a back screen for Jarrett, he didn't cut and Jeff didn't call a timeout," O'Brien said.
Jack obviously wasn't on the same page as his coach.
"Maybe I should have saw (the back cut), but he didn't draw it up going to the rim," Jack said. ". . . We had trouble getting open. Jeff thought somebody was going one way, he threw it up there. They were able to get a steal and convert a layup."

- Marc Berman reports on Nate Robinson shaking and baking his way to a huge night for the Knicks.
- The Knicks and Stephon Marbury meet with an arbitrator today which, considering the Jamaal Tinsley situation, should be interesting. On a side note, Mike D'Antoni is skipping the Knicks practice today so he can testify. Why not change the practice time?
- Frank Isola reports on Will Farrell inspiring Nate to a big performance.
- Howard Beck doesn't forget Robinson's key interception to seal the win for the Knicks.
- Posting and Toasting will take the win despite the way the Knicks struggled against the depleted Pacers.
- Mike Wells vents a bit in his Pacers Insider post on Jim O'Brien's brief post-game comments. Mike also raises a valid point about the officiating in the second half. I'm so used to the lopsided calls I don't even think about it anymore.
