The Pacers hit the road in search of their most impressive win since, when...beating Portland at the Fieldhouse way back on Feb. 7?

The Pacers are 11-7 since that win but few of those 11 wins sniffed impressive. I'll give you the drubbing of Denver at the Fieldhouse, although that Nuggets team was in no shape mentally or physically to test the Pacers that night. Still, coming together to stop the Knicks' six-game win streak at MSG will be impressive regardless of the process it takes to earn the W.

The Knicks are as healthy as they've been in some time, essentially just missing stretch center Andrea Bargnani, which tends to help a team win games. Mike Woodson has also loaded all of their big-name firepower into the starting lineup with J.R. Smith and Amare Stoudemire. Both players came off the bench the last time the Knicks played the Pacers in Indiana which turned into a blowout win for the Pacers once Lance Stephenson (28 points) got loose in tandem with Paul George.
