Pacers vs. Knicks Links: Knicks forced to adjust to Pacers size in Game 2

New, comments

The Pacers out-muscled the Knicks' small-ball attack in Game 1, but can they maintain that advantage in Game 2?

Danny Wild-USA TODAY Sports

The Indiana Pacers made Carmelo Anthony work for his 27 points in Game 1 which required a rough 10 for 28 shooting night from the NBA's leading scorer.

With Anthony playing the power forward spot, the Pacers have to take advantage of their physical size and ability to defend the rim. That's exactly what they did in Game 1 at both ends of the floor which will require some adjustment from Mike Woodson and they way Melo tries to attack the Pacers on defense.

Coach Nick takes a closer look at what Melo did in Game 1 and what the Knicks need to consider to counter the Pacers size advantage. Check out the video here along with the rest of the links:
