NBA FREE PICK: Take Indiana. According to latest NBA trends, Indiana is 9-4 ATS last 13 in series, 5-1 ATS last 6 Tuesday games and 5-2 ATS last 7 overall. 

The Indiana Pacers (54-34 SU, 47-41 ATS, 43-44-1 O/U) took Game 1 with a 102-95 victory. The Knicks (58-31 SU, 49-38-2 ATS, 41-46-2) don't want to get down 2-0 in this Eastern Conference semifinal. The Pacers held Carmelo Anthony to 10-of-28 shooting in Game 1, but that's shouldn't be shocking. Anthony is shooting just 32 percent in his last four playoff games. He's also bothered by a left shoulder injury. The Pacers dominated the paint against the Knicks as they outrebounded them 44-30. The Pacers are a big, physical team as David West (6-9, 250) is a talented but powerful forward who gives the Knicks issues. The injury to Amare Stoudemire, who is expected back in Game 3, was never more felt until this series. The Knicks struggled in Game 1 when they went with their smaller lineup by going with Kenyon Martin at center. Roy Hibbert (14 points, 8 rebounds, 5 blocks) dominated Tyson Chandler (4 points, 3 rebounds, 2 blocks). In Game 2, expect this to be another physical battle that will favor the Pacers. The Pacers visit Madison Square Garden in New York City to take on the Knicks at 7pmET on Tuesday night.
