Jeff Hornacek complains about free throw disparity between Knicks, Magic

Jeff Hornacek complains about free throw disparity between Knicks, Magic

The New York Knicks and Indiana Pacers meet Monday in National Basketball Association action at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Vucevic now has double-doubles in six of his last eight games. NY went 0-2 earlier this season with Porzingis sidelined due to back and elbow issues, and the 7-3 Latvian star is averaging 25.8 points, 6.8 rebounds and 2.1 blocks while shooting 46.7 percent from the floor. But the superstar's second straight absence, combined with Hardaway - whose previously unreported injury was announced barely 30 minutes before the game began - sitting for the first time all season, was too much to overcome. NY has allowed just 43.8 percent shooting to their opposition, third best in the National Basketball Association. But the Knicks couldn't get the stops they needed down the stretch and lost, 105-100, to the Magic Sunday at Madison Square Garden.

The Pacers have been one of the surprise teams in the league this season and are 5-1 ATS when being listed as a favorite.

The Knicks have played more than two-thirds of their games at home and this helped them be on par with their next opponent, the Indiana Pacers. After their last game, he told Clifton Brown of the Indianapolis Star that he expected to play against the Knicks on Monday, "I have two days now to recover".

IN was led by Victor Oladipo with 36 points, seven rebounds, six assists, three steals and three blocked shots in the loss at Toronto. Collison was lively, scoring 16, and Stephenson chimed in with 11 points. Vooch went to work against Enes Kanter, connecting on 13 of his 19 attempts and going 7-of-7 from the charity stripe for an incredible 77.0 true shooting percentage, a welcome sight for Vuc owners following Friday's six-point disaster. "In the fourth quarter, we needed to close the game". NY trailed 36-25 after one quarter and could not fully recover. Victor Oladipo continues to shine for IN as its leading scorer (23.4 PPG) and Myles Turner mans the middle by averaging 2.4 swats per game.

Both sat out Sunday's loss to the Magic and it remains uncertain just when they will be back, clouding the Knicks immediate future.

NY is 2-9 ATS in the last 11 meetings in IN, but 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings overall. The New York Knicks are shooting 35.4 percent from beyond the arc and 79.5 percent from the free throw line. That's the Knicks best player and their second best scorer.

IN simply must play better defense regardless of the pace they run their offense.

They've set themselves up nicely as the games continue to come thick and fast, so here are five keys to making this month feel a lot more like that 6-2 start the team jumped out to. IN should pull away for a 110-97 win.
