Jumping Jack Flash

By Bill Pritchard

Looks like the Knicks’ “Seven Seconds or Less” offense could not prepare for Jarrett Jack. The Pacers guard hit a jumper with 0.9 seconds left in the game to give Indiana the win Friday night.

Jack scored the Pacers’ last six points, including the buzzer-beater, to drop the Knicks to 12-19 on the season. The Knicks outscored the Pacers in the second half, 59-52, and also had a career night from David Lee, but could not hang on for the win. Lee scored 26 points on 12-for-15 shooting and pulled down 11 rebounds along with five steals in the loss.

Al Harrington scored 27 points, including 22 of them in the second half rally, but it still was not enough. The Knicks did not even lead the game until they were up 96-93 with three minutes to go in the fourth quarter. Turnovers proved costly, as they committed 21 in the game that turned into 24 Indiana points. The Pacers regained the lead after three straight Knicks turnovers, and Jack won the game with the jumper after Wilson Chandler tied the game with a three-point-play.

The Knicks have hit a mid season skid in which they have lost 4 straight home games. This year looked promising for the Knicks, but a lack of defense has the team seven games under .500. They started the season with a 6-0 record when scoring 100 or more points, but now sit at 11-10.

They have lost their last six out of their last seven games; the lone win came against the perennial basement-dwelling Bobcats in Charlotte on Tuesday night. The Knicks have another tough test this weekend as they have the defending champion Boston Celtics coming to the Garden on Sunday evening.
