The Knicks used a stifling defense coupled with some poor shooting by the Indiana Pacers, 26 points from top scorer Carmelo Anthony and solid play from several of his teammates to top Indiana 88-76 at Madison Square Garden on Sunday. New York (7-1) had lost its first game of the season to the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday, but limited Indiana to 38.6 percent shooting from the field and benefitted from 19 Pacers turnovers to get back on the winning track. The Knicks also outrebounded a team for the first time this season, 48-47. The Pacers (4-7) were led by Paul George's 20 points. David West added 14 for Indiana. J.R.
