The Pacers complete another back-to-back on Tuesday night when they visit the New York Knicks. The Pacers are 1-5 with no rest so far this season and after expending plenty of energy to hang on for a win on Monday, it makes sense that Vegas is favoring the Knicks.
The Knicks will play their first game at home after going 2-3 on the road against Western Conference teams, losing the last three games on the trip. Point guard Derrick Rose (back) sat out the last two games but expects to play against the Pacers.
The Pacers will continue to play without Monta Ellis and Rodney Stuckey, although Stuckey was expected to travel with the team which leaves open the option that Stuckey could be activated by game time.
