The Knicks have a double whammy going against them in this game. Their biggest problem is that they are going to be without F Carmelo Anthony, who has been suspended for this one after he went hunting Boston Celtics’ F Kevin Garnett following the team’s most recent loss three nights ago. On top of that, doctors are suggesting limiting the playing time of F Amare Stoudemire, which really doesn’t leave a heck of a lot there for Head Coach Mike D’Antoni to work with. On top of that, this is a team that has openly been frustrated by teams that play stout defense and play a physical nature, and that’s exactly what we’re going to see on Thursday night from the Pacers. Indiana is on a high at home, having won eight in a row, and it has gone 7-1 ATS in those games. The most recent victory was an 87-77 win over the Miami Heat that had to make fans smile. It was a tremendously defensive-minded game from the get go, the same type of one that has to scare the heck out of the Knicks. Indiana has held 13 of its last 14 opponents to 98 points or fewer, and 12 of those 14 were held to 94 or fewer. If that’s all the Knicks are going to get to tonight, they’re in a heck of a lot of trouble.
