The Pacers forced a seventh and deciding game with Friday’s 116-103 victory, extending a trend that has seen the home team emerge victorious in each of the first six games of this series. 

Winners in 11 of their past 13 home dates including five of six so far in the postseason, the Knicks are listed as 2.5-point favourites on Sunday’s Game 7 odds, and a -135 bet on the NBA moneyline. The odds of the Pacers pulling off the upset and advancing to the East Finals for the first time in 10 years are pegged at +110 while the total for Sunday’s contest is listed at just 208.5.

Undaunted by a crushing 121-91 defeat at MSG in Game 5, the Pacers overcame an early deficit to seize a lead they would not relinquish in Friday’s 116-103 Game 6 victory on Friday night. However, the Pacers are going to have to overcome their recent dismal road performance and an historically bad track record in Game 7 situations if they are to advance to a showdown with the Boston Celtics in the East Finals. The Pacers enter Sunday’s contest sporting a 3-9 SU record in their past 12 road contests and have also fallen to defeat in eight of their past 10 road dates with the Knicks. Indiana is also winless in three straight Game 7 matchups on the road. Losers in three of four to end an impressive 11-2 run, the Knicks have not fared much better when playing Game 7, losing three of four. However, their most recent Game 7 victory at home came against Indiana in 1994.

Indiana Pacers

The Pacers once again received contributions from up and down the lineup while knotting the series at three games apiece with Friday’s win. Six Pacers shooters scored in the double digits, led by former Toronto Raptor Pascal Siakam, who dropped a team-high 25 points to go along with seven rebounds. Overall, the Pacers 53.8% from the field and outboarded the Knicks by a wide 47-35 margin with all five starters recording at least six rebounds. Indiana also outscored the Knicks by a wide 62-38 margin in the paint.  Tyrese Haliburton has yet to regain the high-scoring form he displayed early in the series, putting up just 15 points, but led the squad with nine assists and is worth considering as a -105 bet to top 27.5 points+assists on Sunday afternoon.

New York Knicks

Jalen Brunson once again led the attack for the Knicks with 31 points on Friday night, and has tallied 75 total points over the past two games. However, like his teammates, Brunson continues to struggle to find the mark, shooting just 43.3% over the past four games. Miles McBride was the only other Knicks shooter to reach 20 points on Friday, with his 20-point contribution fueled by four threes. Indeed, with OG Anunoby still sidelined by a hamstring injury, someone needs to step up to complement Brunson’s scoring if the Knicks are to advance to the East Finals for the first time in a generation.
