Indiana Pacers vs. New York Knicks: Live Score, Results and Game Results

Alec NathanFeatured ColumnistApril 14, 2013

The New York Knicks escaped with a 90-80 victory over the Indiana Pacers on Sunday, and clinched the Eastern Conference's No. 2 seed in the process.

With the win, the Knicks assured themselves home court advantage throughout the first two rounds of the NBA playoffs, and will meet the No. 7 seed Boston Celtics in the first round starting next weekend.

Carmelo Anthony led the Knicks on Sunday afternoon, and did so by contributing 25 points on 9-of-23 shooting.

Chris Copeland and J.R. Smith proved to be a dynamic one-two punch off of the bench for Mike Woodson, as the two combined for 35 points on 15-of-28 shooting.

The Pacers struggled to get their offense going from the jump, as they couldn't find ways to feed Roy Hibbert and David West who had significant size advantages over a depleted New York frontcourt.

Indiana was paced by Lance Stephenson, who scored 22 points on 50 percent shooting in his homecoming.

Next up for the Pacers is a meeting with the Boston Celtics on Tuesday night, while the Knicks will now be able to rest their starters for the remainder of the regular season.
