Knicks Vs. Pacers Preview: Knicks Look For Second Straight Win

The New York Knicks will play game two of the post-Mike D'Antoni era on Friday against the Indiana Pacers. Following the resignation of Mike D'Antoni, the Knicks smashed the re-building Portland Trail Blazers by 42 points in Madison Square Garden.

The Pacers are also coming off a blowout victory, as they impressively dropped 111 points and shot 57 percent from the floor against the Philadelphia 76ers' number one ranked defense on Wednesday night.

At 19-24, New York is locked in a dead heat with the Milwaukee Bucks – who recently acquired Monta Ellis in a trade with the Golden State Warriors – for the eighth and final spot in the Eastern Conference Playoffs. The Knicks are hoping a coaching change will be the spark they need to lock up a playoff spot.

Time: 7:30 p.m. ET

TV: MSG

Betting Line: Knicks are four-point favorites, Over/Under is set at 199 points
