Halftime score: Pacers trail Knicks 47-42 at break

Despite not leading at any point in the first half, the Indiana Pacers find themselves in a surprisingly pleasant five-point hole in Game 2 against the New York Knicks, using an 8-0 run in the final 3:45 of the half to slice into a fading 13 point game. The Pacers have dug themselves in a hole thanks to turnovers, committing 12 in the first half, allowing New York to score 20 points off turnovers, winning 20-6.

The Knicks built their lead with the turnovers, stepping up defensively while the Pacers have struggled in stretches defensively. The Pacers did shoot 54.5%, which helped them overcome a big part of their turnover mistakes. Paul George had a big first half offensively, leading all scorers with 15 points. Iman Shumpert leads New York with 11. Carmelo Anthony has 10 points on 4-11 shooting.
