Indiana Pacers: Why Indiana Will Beat the Knicks in Round 2 By Mike Elworth: Publisher and Owner at Hoopstuff… The Indiana Pacers and New York Knicks are getting ready to face off in round 2. Both teams beat inferior opponents in 6 games, will both have had 2 days rest and should both come in ready to play for their chance at the East Finals. The Indiana Pacers strength is their defense, which was second in the NBA, while the Knicks rely on their offense, mainly that of the NBA’s scoring champion, Carmelo Anthony and JR Smith. New York clearly has the edge on offense and Indiana clearly has the edge in defense, but the Indiana Pacers will win this series. Why? The Pacers’ defense is far more dominating than the Knicks’ offense. The Indiana defense is the best in the East and they are elite in the post and out on the perimeter and have answers to all of the Knicks’ offensive weapons.

J.R. Smith Rips Bandwagon Knicks Fans, Says He Wasn’t Partying (Photo)

Knicks guard J.R. Smith has done a pretty good job of trying to avoid meltdowns and becoming a distraction to his team.  In the last week though, Smith has caught flak for partying it up before the Knicks game four loss to the Celtics.

NY Knicks: J.R. Smith learning a lot about being a leader, he may be too intoxicated to retain it

New York Knicks fans definitely have an idea of the head-case that is J.R. Smith. They put up with it because, on most occasions, the Sixth Man of the Year Smith shows up for games. However, during the Knicks first round series against the Celtics and, after game one against the Indiana Pacers, the ugly Smith showed up.  Why? Maybe because the Sixth Man has become the Party-Man...

Jordan Crawford continues taunting Carmelo Anthony, clearly not a representation of the Boston Celtics!

I've found myself questioning why Danny Ainge would bring Jordan Crawford to Boston. The Boston Celtics are a franchise that prides themselves on great players who take responsibility for their actions both on, and off the court. As the Celtics made a decision to stay away from the pompous taunting tirades of their immature opponents, the seldom used Jordan Crawford shows his...

Trash talk, bad blood reign in NBA playoffs

(Eds: Adds details and quotes. With AP Photos.) By JON KRAWCZYNSKI AP Basketball Writer Talk is cheap in these NBA playoffs, and it seems as if everyone wants in on the act.
