NBA: Pacers dominate the Knicks and qualify for the Eastern Conference final | NBA

Historically, the Pacers and Knicks have one of the greatest rivalries in the NBA. Just like in the 1990s, the two teams will play a big game on Sunday: the seventh and deciding game of the playoffs in search of a spot in the Eastern Conference Final. While playing on the road, Indiana flew to New York and took control of the conflict. They won at Madison Square Garden 130-109 and earned a spot in the next round against the Boston Celtics.

The Pacers team dominated the first half of the match and knew how to take advantage of the opportunities it had. On offense, Tyrese Haliburton was confident and in control of his 3-pointers. Indiana’s franchise group has also drawn attention. There were 19 assists in the first half, and the defense made things difficult for the Knicks.

At the beginning of the third quarter, the Knicks had the best moment of the game. They managed to reduce the advantage of their competitors, but they did not last long. Indiano took control again and accelerated at Madison Square Garden. The Pacers returned to a good rhythm and finished the seventh game 130 to 109. Even with the defeat, DiVincenzo scored 39 points. On the Indian side, Tyrese Haliburton was the highlight with 26.

One of the biggest rivalries in the NBA, the Indiana Pacers and New York Knicks have a balanced head-to-head matchup, with the numbers tilted slightly in favor of the Pacers: 26 wins, versus 22 wins for the Knicks. The great moment of this rivalry occurred in the 1990s, when the legendary New York team was led by Patrick Ewing and with supporting players such as Anthony Mason and Charles Oakley, while the Pacers had their biggest star in Reggie Miller, with the Dutch giant in his team Rick Smits and the German Detlev Schrempf.
