The reason why someone made this is pretty much considering that Knicks beat Heat in playoffs and Pacers beat Magic. Interesting tho, I don't know who I would take. Although Knicks look nice on paper, Indy is a solid defensive team with interior presence that plays like a team. I would say Pacers in 7. Although it could also be NY in 6.

Dumb question. Teams wont meet unless they upset the Heat which Im all for. Pacers are the better team and thats been the case all season. We have a better record for a reason. Knicks are solid but not consistent and not very deep. Would be a fun series to watch and iv actually said I wanted to see it happen. Just dont like people saying Knicks will win easily and crap when WE ARE THE ONES with the better record and better team. Ill tell you this though, Ill be a Knicks fan when they faceoff against Miami.

Ur kidding me if you think they put it together. What i meant is when (if) Melo and Amare figure out how to play together, this team will be much better. Dont throw out their record under Woodson Amare has played in 2-3 games with Woodson and a lot of games with Melo. You also have Tyson pushing Amares game further from the basket. Melo, Amare and Tyson all need to figure it out. Amare is too good to be a liability on the court.

Knicks couldnt handle the Pacers in a 7 game series. This isnt when they fired there coach and was charged up for the 2 games against us. Then we tore em up in the 4th quarter of the 3rd game. Pacers have been the hottest team in the league in April and are clicking on all cylinders. Keep underestimating us, people just dont understand lol.

This is the same exact team. They are 17-6 under the new coach. We tore you up for the 1st 3 quarters and the other games. A lapse like that won't happen again. I'm not understimationg the Pacers, but I think the Knicks would beat them in 6 games

Shumpert can alone can blow out the Pacers by 30+ points playing 1 on 5. So how about if you add the rest of the team?

But seriously, Knicks easily. Knicks have the third best SRS in the east behind Miami and Chicago and they also dominated the Pacers in their regular season meetings.

Knicks match up well against the Pacers. The Knicks should be kicking themselves for blowing a huge lead to them, and playing a lackluster game against Cleveland. The six seed was in their reach, and a very realistic path to the second round.

I really don't understand why the Knicks are running away with this poll. The Pacers have clearly been the better team all season. They have been arguably the best team in the nba over the last month. The Knicks are mediocre and pretty much need Melo to enter God mode every game to win a playoff series. I think Pacers win in 5 or 6.

I agree and it's a little excessive but I also think its very telling in terms of the overall state of the NBA landscape.

It's long been argued that Stern and the NBA executive power players have yearned for Knicks relevance and this is the reason why. The basketball landscape and NBA bottom line is much ore better off with a mobilized Knick fan base.

Knick fans are so starved for any kind of basketball success that they are excessively active and involved as the playoff time approaches.

NY has deep basketball pride as well as a reverence for the building in which they play. It's not surprising that a city so starved in a sport that they love so much are a bit over eager.

Just imagine how Yankee fans would be if they failed to have any success for 12 years and that should give you an idea of the hope and optimism that is taking over Knick fans at the moment

I don't know why the Knicks fans keep bringing up that they have the second best record after Woodson took over...is that suppose to mean something?

How about this.
Pacers in the month of April as of right now have won 12 games out of 15 games
Knicks in thie month of April as of right now have won 8 games out of 12.

Both teams did very well in April.

Pacers are no doubt one of the hottest team right now and I don't know how some Knicks fans say they could beat the Pacers "easily".

If anything, the Knicks are in the same league as the Pacers right now, a step below the Bulls, Heat, OKC, Spurs etc...

Knicks in 6,the playoffs are a different type of game. its half court, defensive orientened basketball. the knicks under woodson have been a top 3 ranked defense in the league, we lock people down when we want to. thats what woodson has brought to this team that we didnt neccessarily have before. the pacers are a good team, i actually like the pacers team (rivalry aside) and im not underestimating them, but the knicks would beat them in six wash our hands and be through with em.

04-26-2012, 10:34 AM
Knicks in 5 or 6. Pacers just don't matchup well with them. Hibbert didn't have much success against Chandler in their head to head matchups, and truthfully aside from possibly Collison, there's no position advantage the Pacers have.

Add to that their only supposed star in Granger is as erratic as they come, and I don't think it would be that close. I don't think it's blind homerism making that statement, rather a pragmatic one from seeing their H2H matchups this year.

Not a good matchup at all for the Pacers. I'd much rather see the Pacers against the sixers, that would be a very fun and competitive matchup to watch.

Injuries are not excuses. Teams have been beat up this season, not just NY. You do understand this is a condensed season right? Last year playoffs same thing, 2 of our starters were out because of injuries but we only come with excuses? Yeah because not having 40% of your starting lline up dosen't hurt any team.

Again, injuries are not excuses, injuries hinder a teams ability to beat orher helthy teams. Whatever team you root for, take away two of your strarters (in a 7 game series)would they have the same chance of beating the other team? I certanly do.

It would be a tough series but I think the Knicks could win it. Seems like a matchup that the Knicks may be able to take advantage of, unless the Pacers put Paul George on Carmelo? Danny Granger would have to carry the perimeter offense and Hibbert would have to play well against Chandler.

I haven't seen much from the Pacers bench but the Knicks bench is about as talented there is in the league right now.

It would be close. Pacers played great last year vs the bulls so in the playoffs they aren't the same team as regular season. I'm not sure the knicks can handle them. But, chandler gives the knicks so much in defense and energy he may be the difference maker. It's hard to say, probably a 7 game series.

Seeding DOES NOT MATTER in the playoffs. We almost owned you in the regular series with two straight wins and one loss. That's why some fans give the advantage to the knicks. Example: the heat beat us 3-0 in the regular season. I can't be mad when people say MIA will beat NY, they showed they can beat us As the pacers did with NY. Anything is possible, don't trip.

So basically I can say the same thing because you are using the regular season as an example as well. Just because you won the regular season series proves nothing in the playoffs, it's a different game. Anything is possible, don't trip. ;)

Besides these two teams aren't going to match-up in the playoffs so it really doesn't matter.

I never said you couldn't use the regular season as an example. I was pointing out that the seeding is not relevant for a playoff series. But you surely can pick favorites based on the regular season results, injuries going into the post season, team quemistry etc.

Besides these two teams aren't going to match-up in the playoffs so it really doesn't matter.

I agree that's why I didn't start this thread.

I gotta go with the Pacers here. Their coach has an edge because he's been playing with this roster for over a season, they match up well at each of NY's strong positions, and they have more depth. There is a reason why the Pacers have a better record than the Knicks.
