After their first loss of the year, the Knicks return home to face the Pacers.
Good day, friends! Time to start a new win streak! After taking one of two in their back-to-back, the Knicks are back home this afternoon to face the Indiana Pacers. The Pacers have been pretty bad without Danny Granger, but they've been changing things up a bit and put a beating on Dallas in their last game. Like Memphis, they're a pretty big team that's really good at rebounding. Mike Woodson will go with his same starting lineup, which means Carmelo Anthony will have to spend plenty of time battling David West. Meanwhile, we have no real clarification on why Marcus Camby hasn't been playing. From the sound of things, Mike Woodson just prefers Rasheed Wallace (and Kurt Thomas in a pinch) right now, but we'll see if that changes at all today and going forward.
If the Knicks show up, this should be a great opportunity for a bounce-back game. Indiana's been a pretty terrible offensive team. If the Knicks come out with some Sunday matinee sluggishness, though, they run the risk of getting beat up just like they did on Friday. I'm fairly nervous.
