NEW YORK (54-28) AT INDIANA (49-32), 8:00 PM (ET)
After a couple of high-scoring games (for these two teams), the last three
contests have been typical Indiana-New York affairs. Only one game saw either
club reach the 90-point mark and that came in the last Indiana home game.
The Pacers and Knicks have combined for three consecutive unders and just one
over in the five games this series. Additionally, the two teams are 11-5-1 to
the under in the last 17 meetings. That means two-thirds of those contests were
George Hill missed the last game with a concussion and is questionable for
game six. Even if he plays, it is doubtful the Pacers will score in the 90s.
That means for this game to go over the total, the Knicks will have to win this
one, which is almost unthinkable considering they have lost the last five games
played in Indiana
