Pacers up 1-0 vs Knicks, hope to take another in NY
There are worse situations to be in: bathing with a toaster, sleeping in a nest of vipers, determining a mineshaft’s depth head first.
Going to Indiana, down 0-2 after playing at home, ranks right up there. And that’s a predicament the Pacers hope to inflict upon the Knicks. The Pacers already have wrested away home-court. Now they would like to take it another step and put the Knicks down two games. They’re not thinking split.
“It’s something we’re very excited about having the opportunity to do,” Pacers coach Frank Vogel said. “And we feel we need to do it. We don’t feel like we’re happy getting a split. Momentum changes with every game in the series. We have to come out for Game 2 like it’s Game 7.”
So going home even? Not so appealing.
