Pacers shut down Knicks down stretch


Pacers shut down Knicks down stretch

Hibbert tied it at 76 early in the fourth, then Granger made a 3-pointer to give the Pacers the lead for good. Wilson Chandler's jumper with 9:20 left made it a one-point game, but the Knicks were shut out from the field the rest of the night.

The fourth-quarter debacle came after the Knicks had averaged 40.5 points in the fourth quarters of their previous two games. They managed only 33 points in the second half Wednesday.

"For whatever reason, it seems every time we get stuck or whatever, instead of having a little more determination or patience, we just jack one up and that kind of got us in trouble in the second half," Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni said.

New York stayed within four points by making numerous trips to the line until Ford's jumper made it 93-87 with 3:12 to go. Ford followed with two free throws for an eight-point lead, and after Harrington hit two free throws, Ford knocked down another jumper to put it away at 97-89 with 48 seconds remaining.

The Pacers committed seven turnovers in the first quarter, but still trailed only 25-21 after both teams shot under 40 percent. The offenses picked up in the second, with Harrington scoring 10 points and New York hitting 62 percent to take a 56-50 halftime lead.

The Knicks led by seven late in the third quarter before the Pacers scored the final six points of the period. Granger made a 3-pointer, but the other points were on free throws that pulled Indiana within 74-73 heading to the fourth.

Indiana was 8 of 12 from the line in the third quarter. New York shot none.

NOTES: O'Brien said he didn't know how long Murphy would be out, but said the forward had trouble putting his shoes on Wednesday. ... The Knicks are in a stretch where they play seven of eight games at home. ... Hibbert has double-doubles in his last two games, the first two of his career.
