Turnovers, Turnovers, Turnovers…

Oh, did I mention turnovers?

Indiana committed 21 of them which lead to 32 points for New York. The Knicks put a toe-tag on the game after a 30-2 run. Indiana was only down by six after the third quarter but went ice-cold, missing their first eleven shots of the fourth quarter.  The Pacers were held scoreless in the final period before tallying their first point with 4:48 remaining in the game.

Led by Carmelo Anthony, New York started out the fourth quarter on a 20-0 run and never looked back. Anthony had a better performance in Game Two, scoring 32 points and added 9 rebounds.

Although J.R. Smith had another horrendous game (3 for 15 shooting), New York’s defense was the difference in the game. Indiana looked flustered and even flushed at the beat-down they were taking. It was so bad that even Quentin Richardson got some playing time and hit two 3 pointers.

Indiana must find a way to get David West involved in Game Three. After a solid performance in the first game of the series, West only had seven shot attempts and did not look that involved in Indiana’s offensive game-plan. Paul George was the only Pacer who had a solid game. He chipped in 20 points and shot 50% from the field.

Game Three will be played Saturday, May 11th (8 ET) on ABC.
