Indiana Pacers vs NY Knicks by FairPlayBet
More reasons for this bet is fact how New York Knicks played in recent games. In last two weeks, somewhere from the moment when coach Mike Woodson replaced D'Antoni, Knicks are the best defensive team. But tonight they will face with Indiana Pacers who averaged in last two 103.5 points per game and who scored at least 103 in 5 of last 7. So, we may need to be more careful this time.
I have feeling we may see tonight more points than usual, but only in early stage (1st quarter). Already in second, things should be back to normal. After all, if we take deep analysis then we will find out that in high percent second quarters are the low scoring ones no matter what teams are in question. One of the main reasons for this is fact that this is the time when players from the bench have the most minutes on the floor.
Specifically, for Indiana and New York, I could not find too many games where this option would be lost. Indiana in last 10, 7 times under and only 3 times over, in last 15, 10 times under and 5 times over. On the other side New York Knicks have had even better stats. In last 11 straight games where they were involved, it was under 49 points in second quarter and also 12 times in last 15.
BTW, last head to head that was two weeks ago finished with 190 total scored points, Knicks won on the road 88-102 with 43 points total points in second period.
