The Knicks dominated the woeful Indiana Pacers on Sunday, 88-76.
Three months may seem like a long time, especially in light of the fact that no surgery is involved, but this is one of those rare occasions when a club appears to be establishing realistic expectations rather than offering up only wish-list-like optimism.
Danny Granger scored 32 points despite playing on a sprained left ankle and led the Indiana Pacers past the New Jersey Nets 93-88 on Thursday night.
Carmelo Anthony scored 34 points, making the go-ahead jumper with 4.9 seconds left and blocking a potential winning attempt, helping the New York Knicks beat the Indiana Pacers 110-109 on Sunday night for their seventh straight win.
Danny Granger’s jumper with 0.3 seconds left gave the Indiana Pacers a 119-117 victory over the New York Knicks on Tuesday night.
Tyler Hansbrough scored a career-high 29 points, Dahntay Jones added 18 in place of leading scorer Danny Granger, and the Indiana Pacers snapped a six-game losing streak with a 106-93 victory over the New York Knicks on Sunday night.
Instead of being without two starters, it looks as if the New York Knicks could be at full strength when they open a home-and-home series against the sputtering Indiana Pacers on Sunday night at Madison Square Garden.
The Nets haven’t won three straight games in nearly two years. With the Pacers reeling, New Jersey may be in prime position to change that.
