The Indiana Pacers needed to come up with plays late in yet another close game to seal a win over the New York Knicks. The Pacers let the Knicks control the game from deep (13-26 from three point range) and the free throw line (outscoring Indiana 22-13) to make the game a much tighter contest than may have otherwise been the case. The Knicks were helped out in a big way by Jose Calderon (20 points), Kyle O'Quinn (19), and Langston Galloway (17).
The Pacers were led by the combination of Paul George and Myles Turner, with George leading all scorers with 29 points, seven rebounds, and six assists. Turner had 24 points and six rebounds in his first meeting with Kristaps Porzingis, who scored a team high 23 for the Knicks. The win is Indiana's third in the first four games back from the All-Star Break.
