For the second time is as many nights, the Knicks are putting together a balanced offensive effort against the Indiana Pacers, and they've taken a 60-51 halftime lead in the back half of a home and home.
Amare Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony have led the way for New York, combining for 20 points on 6-11shooting. Playing shorthanded in the back court with Baron Davis resting a sore hamstring, the Knicks received a boost from veteran backup Mike Bibby, who put up five points in eight minutes of relief for starter Jeremy Lin.
The Pacers - who have won 13 of 18 home games thus far this season - got 10 points from forward Paul George and another 12 from guard Darren Collision. Despite shooting just under 49 percent from the field, the Pacers have hit just one of seven eight point tries.
