Research Notes

  • Lance Stephenson provided an unexpected spark Sunday, scoring 11 points and grabbing a career-high 13 rebounds (including regular season). The Pacers defense has been better with Stephenson on the court throughout the playoffs, allowing 90.8 points per 100 possessions with him on the floor and 112.0 with him off the floor.

  • Carmelo Anthony was held to 5-of-17 (29.4%) shooting against Paul George in Game 1 after George held Anthony to 38.8% shooting in the regular season. In addition, George also held J.R. Smith to 0-of-7 shooting Sunday.

  • The Knicks were held to 42.9% shooting inside 5 feet with Roy Hibbert on court in Game 1 (league average: 59.4%). The Pacers have outscored opponents by 50 points inside 5 feet with Hibbert on court this postseason and have been outscored by 22 with Hibbert on the bench.

  • The Knicks have never won a playoff series after losing Game 1 at home -- they're 0-5 in those series. Coincidentally, the last time they lost a Game 1 at home was also against the Pacers in the Eastern Conference Semifinals -- in 1995.
