The Indiana Pacers start off a very tough week today against the New York Knicks, in New York. The Knicks have won 3 of 4 and have enough talent to take on any team, but are still adjusting to each other so they are definitely beatable. Danny Granger, Roy Hibbert and company must quickly turn things around as the 8th spot just got a little bit tighter. The Milwaukee Bucks beat the Philadelphia 76ers last night which brings them a 1/2 game behind the Pacers and Charlotte Bobcats.
The Knicks like to get up and down the court, so look for this to be very fast paced game both ways. Darren Collison is going to have some trouble guarding the larger Chauncey Billups, but Coach Frank Vogel may look to put a larger defender on the former all-star. Good news...if the game doesn't go as the Pacers are hoping it does....they have a do-over on Tuesday...
