The Indiana Pacers led the entire way, topping the New York Knicks to pick up their second straight win. Indiana jumped ahead 11-0, eight of those points coming from Myles Turner. The Pacers had a response all night, especially in the fourth when New York had cut the lead to four with 6:48 remaining. Turner entered, scored five, and it time to turn out the lights.
Turner led the way with 25 points and 13 rebounds, blocking three shots and hitting seven threes. Caris LeVert scored 21 as all five starters reached double figures. Malcolm Brogdon returned to action, scoring 17 with eight rebounds and seven assists. Domantas Sabonis, limited with foul trouble, scored 10, as did Chris Duarte, who finished the first quarter with a patented buzzer beater.
The Pacers shot the ball extremely well from three, going 16-41, having a response to each New York push. The Pacers were also excellent on the defensive end, holding the Knicks to a season worst 5-24 from deep. The Pacers have now won two straight as they prepare to head out West for a four-game road trip starting against the Portland Trail Blazers on Friday.
