The Pacers have won four of the last six games in this series. The New York Knicks can tie this series but will need to win on the road for the first time this year. Indiana point guard George Hill suffered a concussion in Game 4 and missed Game 5. The Pacers missed him as they produced just 12 assists and had 19 turnovers. D.J. Augustin stepped in for Hill and scored 12 points but did not dish out an assist in 39 minutes. The Pacers don't have a backup point guard when Augustin comes out of the game, which means Lance Stephenson has to handle the ball more. Stephenson wound up with just four points and shot 1-of-7 from the field. When Hill scores 14 points or more, the Pacers are 7-0 in the playoffs. Without him, they are in trouble. Expect the Knicks to return to New York for Game 7 on Monday with a win on Saturday night. The Knickstake on the Pacers from Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis at 8pmET on Saturday night in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference semifinal.
