NBA FREE PICK: Take Indiana. According to latest NBA trends, Dog is 1-4 ATS last 5 in series. Pacers are 4-0 ATS last 4 at home and 13-5 ATS last 18 Tuesday games. The Pacers don't want to go back to New York with the series tied, thus losing home court advantage. The Knicks are becoming a dysfunctional unit as Tyson Chandler is criticizing some of his teammates for not passing to open men. Apparently, one of the players was Carmelo Anthony, who shot 6-of-16 from the field in Game 3. The truth hurts but the real issue is Indiana and their defense, They held New York to just 71 points in Game 3 and outrebounded New York, 53-40. Paul George, an erratic shooter, has been sterling defensively, while Roy Hibbert patrols the middle at 7-foot-2 and is dominating Chandler. J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert have also missed practice time due to illness. It couldn't come at a worse time. Pacers move on to Game 5 up 3-1 and cover the 5.
