The Knicks shot just 37% from the field as Indiana held an opponent under 100 points for the first time since the all-star break. The Pacers led by two at the end of the third quarter before Granger scored nine points during a 14-5 Indiana run as the blue-and-gold pulled away.

Marion's Zach Randolph led New York with 21 points and 14 rebounds as the Knicks have lost all three meetings with Indiana this season.

The Pacers lost center David Harrison in the second quarter with an injury to his left knee. The injury was diagnosed as a knee contusion and Harrison did not return.
