Could the pacers beat the Knicks in a 7 game series? i would have to say NOPE

3 games behind with 7 games left? Doubtful. They do hold the tiebreaker, so a tie gives them the nod. I think the Magic can win 3 of their remaining games, meaning NYK would have to go 6-1. I don't see the latter happening.

Isn't this what the 'Dwight out with a herniated disk' thread is about? You know, the one about the impact of Dwight's injury on the playoff chase. The one where Knicks and Pacers fans are arguing about this exact question.

You guys are playing the Cavs, 76ers, Celtics, Jazz, Nuggets, Bobcats and Grizzles. I think that without Dwight the only game that's a given for you guys is the Charlotte game. You also have 5 away games and 2 home games (one of which is against Charlotte). I think us going 6-1 isn't likely, but it is possible, though I think we'll only have to go 5-2 to take 6th seed honestly.

Why?

I think there's a good chance you might lose all your games. The only normally "gimme" games on your schedule is Cleveland or Charlotte. Charlotte has played you guys tough this season for whatever reason and Cleveland is away. And if Kyrie plays... good luck. Honestly, without Dwight, I don't think this team is better than Cleveland was without Lebron. I think Orlando will drop to 7th or 8th.

Not cocky at all, we abused them for 11 out of 12 quarters and we present terrible matchups for them... chandler has no problem w hibbert... indiana has no one that can cover melo (don't say granger, cause melo abuses him) and not to mention we have amare coming back and west is not the kind of pf who gives amare problems

It's only 3 games. Besides, I don't think simply inserting Amare back into the lineup will be as beneficial as you think. Besides, Indiana has the last laugh. Maybe they've learned the adjustments they need to make to beat NY based on their furious comeback the last time they faced.

I still think it's a series that goes 6, maybe even 7 games. For the record, I'd have NY in 6.

New york is facing miami, boston, NJ, clev, atl, clippers, charlotte.
Dont think they'll go 6-1. I think miami is going to beat them tomoro. This means they have to finish out the season 5-0 and beat 3 teams with better records than theirs.

If Orlando beats only Charlotte and Cleveland, and New York beats both of these teams in addition to 2 out of the 4 (Boston, Miami, LA, ATL), the Knicks make the playoffs. The first outcome is very likely, even the Cleveland win isn't guaranteed with D12 and Turk out. Also I think NY might be able to beat ATL, and then possibly Boston. Also the Knicks will be well rested against Miami and I'm sure will want to make a statement by beating CHI and MIA in the same week. Basically if the Knicks beat MIA, watch out, this is going to happen.

Basically, if Orlando goes 2-5, and NY 5-2, the Knicks get the 6 seed which is very much possible.

nvrmind, i just realized that NY owns the tie breaker and that i made a mistake they should go 5-1 not 5-0 if they loose to miami. Its going to be tough, but its possible.

If the knicks could split with Boston or Miami they'll be fine then there gonna have to split with ATL or Clippers let's say 5-2 can do it 6-1 would be great and the Magics 2-5 I would give them Cleveland and Bobcats but they could loose to ether but maybe Nelson/Reddick or somebody else gets hot and they pull out another game against Philly or Jazz if they do that Knicks would have to go 6-1 which would be really tough. BUT completely possible.

I watched the game, actually.

And going cold is usually not simply a product of going cold, but a product of good defense, i.e. defensive adjustments.

Basketball is also not simply a game of one on one. The combination of Amare and Melo has yet shown to be beneficial at either the offensive or defensive side of the ball. Couple that with a rusty Amare just back from injury, and I have little belief that they will be better.

Actually if you remember the game they started guys like Harrellson and Tony Douglas they got out-hustled in the beginning of the fourth which is why the lead evaporated within 3-4 min and when Carmelo/Chandler came back in they were still tired they just weren't able to stop the pacers run.

Jared Jeffries actually said in the radio they plan on starting Amare but they will end up subbing him in the first and move Carmelo to the four PF so the mismatch nightmares continue with Mello. So I see Amare coming off the bench a lot more this year helping out the second unit subbing for Mello and Chandler. This will solidify there Bench scoring. Also let Amare take advantage of Centers since they can't cover his jump shot and quickness

And if the Knicks somehow get the pacers and beat them in 6-7 Lin will be back the second round. He would probably come off the bench at first so the bench would PG-Lin SG- Smith SF- Novak PF- Jeffries C- Amare pretty sick if everything falls into place perfectly :D

I think stoping granger is what would give us fits, fields got abused last game, but amare being back would be huge he can guard west, all about health. I would say it goes 7 but Maybe knicks in 6 or 7 but it wouldnt shock me if indy won in 6 or 7 I would love to bring back the rivarly between ny and Indy, Im too young to remember reggie miller vs the knicks, It would be great though.

Don't get me wrong Rose is super clutch 1 on 1 game on the line no doubt but when the game is on the line at the free throw line he blew two games already this season one against heats and against the knicks.

I don't know where you get that from, but we don't think the bulls are unbeatable. Yes, knicks fans should be excited but please stop being borderline cocky in terms of how far up your team is going to move up and who they are going to beat etc. As if now, the Knicks are still like 3.5 back of Boston and 3 back of Orlando. Yes there is a shot of it happening but stop acting like it's already happened, it gets annoying as hell.

Funny how you guys look at the knicks/miami game this season and say that. Funny how you guys didn't notice him hitting 3 FTs at the end of regulation to tie the game with indiana to send it into overtime, funny how you didn't mention Rose hitting his last free throw to essentially end the game against your beloved Knicks in the first game of the season. Whatever makes you feel better, bud.

So put your crack pipe down and stop pounding your chest until you win a damn playoff game.

or at the very least get out of the bottom of the Easter Conference standings.

Funny how you guys look at the knicks/miami game this season and say that. Funny how you guys didn't notice him hitting 3 FTs at the end of regulation to tie the game with indiana to send it into overtime, funny how you didn't mention Rose hitting his last free throw to essentially end the game against your beloved Knicks in the first game of the season. Whatever makes you feel better, bud.

No no that doesn't count. Only the games that Knicks fans watched count.

Read the posts before saying anything... i was only talking about indiana who we handled easily for 11 of 12 quarters and we lost amare and chauncey in the playoffs and got robbed with an blatant illegal screen by kg and a ******** offensive foul call on melo and i was simply stating FACTS that because one team has a better record does not mean they will win or are the better team... pretty sure the giants had a worse record then the pats the last two times they played in the superbowl... howd that end up working out?

You just proved you're an idiot by using a non-basketball comparison to make your point. And the funny thing is I've heard this from numerous Knicks fans.

yes chiago choked vs ny but if melo doesnt hit those 3s we dont win the game, dont listen to over confident knick fans there exicted, knicks wont make it past the 1st round mostlikley unless they get up to the six seed possibly. But they have a chance key word chance against any team in a series

oh you mean all one of the 4 they played? They seem to forget the 3 wins by chicago and the Bulls weren't healthy for any of them either I believe.

I agree, yes. For all we know, the Knicks can move up to the 6th seed, it's not like there is no shot of it. What is frustrating is some of the fans talking like it's already done and 'pounding' their chest about it and putting down the other fans which is what is getting frustrating.

They'll say Rose was healthy for the 3rd meeting, even though he just came back from injury and injured himself in 2nd QTR of that game. Yeah, I guess that had nothing to do with his poor performance..

I didn't know going 13-4 (most wins against mediocre teams) in a 66 game season makes you elite? Oh silly me..

actually 7 of the 13 games we won were against playoff teams... indiana smacked twice... orlando with dwight twice... bulls... philly and milwaukee is a mediocre/good team

some ny fans get that way, I understand it is frustrating but Not all knick fans are that way, there are a bunch that tell it how it is,

No he wasnt healthy but he played, Melo was hurting for the first matchup why does rose get a pass but not melo?

I just noticed why are there bulls fans here? There should only be sixers,magic,pacer,and knicks fans here. You guys have the 1 seed good luck.

SOME bulls fans make it a point to disrupt anything knicks. They have the best record why are they even arguing with anybody lol. We should take the 6th seed though if we play well enough in the end.

Memphis actually beat SA in the regular season (beat them, not got lucky) and posed obvious mismatches. The Knicks can't say the same.

ignoring all the BS aside it's very possible for the Knicks to catch Orlando.

Knicks remaining schedule:
Miami
Boston
@New Jersey
@Cleveland
@Atlanta
Los Angeles
@Charlotte

I believe the Knicks will lose to Miami and Atlanta. That puts them at 5-2.

Magic remaining schedule:

@Cleveland
Philadelphia
@Boston
@Utah
@Denver
Charlotte
@Memphis

Maybe I'm just an optimistic Knicks fan I can see them lose all these games minus Charlotte putting them 1-6.

Although anything can happen, maybe we get stuck to the 7th seed and Philly gets hot and get the 6th. Maybe the Knicks won't go to the playoffs at all (Oh noes D:)

I guess we just have to sit and watch. >.>

Yea i agree that the knicks will go 5-2 but the magic i doubt that they go 1-6 but you never know with the magic especially that howard is gone now.

I don't think it's probable, but it's definitely plausible... They're 3 games back and own the tie-breaker; the Magic have gone 1-4 without Dwight (only win was against the Pistons who were on a b2b) so if the Knicks go 3-4 and the Magic don't go atleast 4-3, game over.

It really depends on how the Knicks can close the season, it may be safe to say the Magic won't win 3 of 7 without Dwight, but it will be on the Knicks to finish strong against better competition.

way to cocky bro. Way to cocky.

Not really we beat the Pacers in blowout back to back games. Then we nearly blew them out and again a 3rd time but the Pacers made a comeback in the 4th. Without Stat and Lin our offense went stagnant. Pacers are a good team but the Knicks should be able to win we seem to match up particularly well against them and the Magic. Maybe not in 5 but probably 6 at most.

As for catching Orlando its doable but won't be easy. Anything is better than playing Chicago and the Heat in the first round. Without two starters we have pretty much no chance unless there is a miracle.
