Knicks Will Battle To At Least Force Game Six Versus Pacers

Posted by Craig Parsons on 5/15/2013 7:07:46 PM

The New York Knicks were the team that many online sports betting experts predicted would have the best chance  at knocking off the Miami Heat in the NBA playoffs. The reality is they won’t even get a shot at them. The Knicks will return home to New York facing a three-games-to-one series deficit in their best-of-seven second-round series against the Indiana Pacers. Winning three-straight doesn’t appear to be in the cards for New York, but they will fight to at least force a game six.

Eastern Conference 2nd Round
Indiana Pacers @ New York Knicks
Thursday, 8:00 PM ET – Game 5
Pacers lead 3-1

The Pacers are undefeated in five home playoff games so far this online sportsbook season, and they will have the upper hand again if the series goes to Indiana for game six. However, the Pacers have played their best basketball when they have adopted a sense of urgency, and likewise to game two of this series that may not be the case heading in to Thursday night. Indiana stole game one of this series at New York, but came out flat in game two and never really looked to have a chance in the game. This could be a similar situation with the Pacers more than willing to end this series on their own home court, so look for Carmelo Anthony and his teammates to put together one more complete effort and at least force game six. The Knicks play better basketball when focusing on what they do best and not getting in to the physical battles, and that should not be a problem in this contest.

NBA Betting Pick: New York Knicks – 3.5

Western Conference 2nd Round
San Antonio Spurs @ Golden State Warriors
Thursday, 10:30 PM ET – Game 6
Spurs lead 3-2

The Warriors are also facing a must-win sports betting situation but unlike the Knicks, they are one win away from evening their best-of-seven series at three wins each and forcing a decisive game seven. Golden State has been just as good as the Spurs in this series, but injuries were a factor in their game-six loss at San Antonio and they seemed to run out of energy. That shouldn’t be the case at home for game six, especially considering the veteran Spurs won’t have the home crowd at the AT&T Center behind them and helping to will them through. The Warriors are still a young team and if Stephen Curry can manage an ankle injury that has plagued him all series, there is little doubt that Golden State will be able to force game seven. Oracle Arena will be as loud as it has been all year for the biggest game of the season, and it will save its loudest for the win reaction that comes at the end as the Warriors outhustle a Spurs’ team that won’t bring the same intensity that it did in game five.
