The New York Knicks live to fight another day.
After a week that has been rife with rumours of bickering and frustration, the Knicks managed to pull it together to get a 10-point win over the Indiana Pacers to force a sixth game on Saturday in Indiana.
Carmelo Anthony scored 28 points off 28 shots Thursday, pushing the Eastern Conference semifinals series to a 3-2 tally after the 85-75 win.
Despite Anthony’s solid offensive effort, the Knicks rolled up their sleeves and knuckled up with the Pacers defensively to get it done.
The Knicks forced 19 Pacer turnovers during the contest that saw them take a 12-point lead into the fourth period.
The Knicks role players also got back into the picture. J.R. Smith and Chris Copeland both scored 13 points off the bench for the Knicks and Raymond Felton had 12.
Paul George produced 23 points for the Pacers to go with six assists and six rebounds.
