Research Notes

  • From Elias: The Knicks won Game 2 against the Pacers by 26 points. In NBA history (excluding series clinching games), when a team wins by 25+ points it has a 51.7% chance to win the next game (89-83).

  • The Pacers turned the ball over 21 times which led to 32 points off turnovers by the Knicks.

  • Carmelo Anthony got off to a slow start on Tuesday, scoring 10 points on 24 touches in the 1st half. He was more aggressive in the 2nd half, scoring 22 points on 1 more touch.

  • Through 3 quarters, the Pacers were finding success near the basket, going 17-of-22 inside 5 feet. But in the 4th quarter, the Pacers were 0-of-1 from that distance. Indiana went away from taking advantage of its size, which had worked well in Game 1, when David West and Roy Hibbert combined for 8-of-11 inside 5 feet.

  • With 3:28 left in the third quarter, George Hill hit a 3-pointer to put the Pacers up by 2 (64-62). The Pacers did not convert another field goal until 3:09 left in the game. During that run, Carmelo Anthony had 11 touches, made 1 pass and scored 16 points. The Knicks emptied the bench at the 4:55 mark, with a 26-point lead.

  • The Knicks scored 52 points in the paint, 32 points off turnovers and 29 second-chance points in Game 2 Tuesday. New York's points off turnovers and second-chance points were its most in any playoff game since the 1996-97 season, while the 52 paint points were tied for its most in a playoff game during that span (also scored 52 points in the paint vs Pacers in 1999).

  • Pacers missed 14 straight FG at one point. Those attempts were spread around. They were taken by:George (0-3)West (0-2)Hibbert (0-2)Hill (0-2)Stephenson (0-2)B. Hansbrough (0-1)Green (0-1)Johnson (0-1)
