Two days after closing out their first-round playoff series on the road, the Indiana Pacers and New York Knicks were in action at Madison Square Garden in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinal series.
Carmelo Anthony and the Knicks started strong but went cold in the second and third quarters, combining to score just 38 points in 24 minutes of play. Anthony would finish with a game-high 27 points on 10-of-28 shooting, but it wouldn't be enough.
Despite New York's late rally Indiana would hold on to the lead, finishing 102-95. The Pacers shot nearly 49 percent from the field to shock the Knicks on their home floor, stealing home-court advantage and taking a 1-0 series lead.
David West and Paul George both led the way for Indiana, scoring 20 and 19 points respectively, and combined to shoot 13-of-29 from the floor.
Let's take a look at the top plays and key moments of the Pacers' series-opening victory over the Knicks.
