The seventh game of the series between the Pacers and Knicks was played this Sunday on the stage in New York City. Both franchises have certainly won the last few battles, and this one repeated the same logic. Indiana came out to eat the field and took advantage of the factor that has harassed those from the Big Apple throughout this series: the low turnover of its team. In the end, the visitors celebrated in distant lands after taking the game 130 to 109.

The Knicks kept their heart as long as they could. Absences thought more about the New York team; which added another significant defeat in this seventh rivalry. Jalen Brunson broke his hand trying to avoid a Tyrese Haliburton basket on a fast break. The figure tries to hit the ball, but his hand hits the opponent’s knee; and never saw game action again. This is possibly the last straw in a long series that ends up breaking the camel’s back. New York’s team structure crumbled, despite all their attempts to get back into the game.

The three-point shot is the great ally of the Pacers. It seemed impossible to maintain what was done in the first half in the second 24 minutes, but we made a mistake. He finished with 66% in the first two quarters, and kept the momentum going. As if that wasn’t enough, they tightened up the defense, causing a string of defeats that were too much to deal with. The distance grew and grew; nothing else to do.
