The New York Knicks did some good things through the first 32 1/2 minutes of Tuesday's Game 2 against the Indiana Pacers at Madison Square Garden, but despite forcing and capitalizing off Pacer turnovers, they couldn't seem to separate themselves from the Central Division champions, who just kept executing their surprisingly potent offense and making shots against the Knicks defense.
Then the end of the third quarter rolled around. Well, the 3:28 mark of the third quarter, to be more accurate.
That's when the Knicks began a mammoth run that saw them shoot 63.2 percent from the floor and hold Indiana without a field goal for 10 1/2 minutes. They outscored the Pacers 30-2 during that stretch, turning a nail-biter into a 105-79 blowout that evened the two teams' best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinals series at one game each with the series set to shift to Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indiana for Game 3 on Saturday night.
But before we look forward to the weekend, let's look back at that run, which began with just under 3 1/2 minutes remaining in the third.Read More »from Knicks use 30-2 run to pull away from Pacers, take Game 2 blowout to even series (Video)
