GREENBURGH, N.Y. (AP) - The New York Knicks will not concede they have a ``big'' problem - yet.
They know the Indiana Pacers have a size advantage, realize that Carmelo Anthony is going to get beat up banging against a bulkier body, and understand that a change to a lineup with a conventional power forward may become necessary.
Not now, but check back if they lose Game 2 on Tuesday night.
The Pacers outrebounded the Knicks 44-30 in their 102-95 victory Saturday in the opener of the second-round series.
Knicks coach Mike Woodson says Monday he's ``not saying I won't'' make a lineup change, but that ``I'm just saying right now we've only got one game under our belt. ... The small lineup that we started didn't cost us.''
