Strong finish to the half for the Pacers. They head into the break with a 48-34 lead. Paul George with 12 pts.
OK, now the Pacers are running away.
Fouls quickly adding up for the Knicks. Stoudemire, Martin, Chandler each with 3. Pacers up 41-32 w/ 1:57 left in the half.
This is what the big lineup gets you. Amare. Kenyon and Chandler all with 3 fouls each for the Knicks. Pacers up 41-30
Knicks have now fired up 13 3-pointers, two more than all of Game 3. They're just 2-for-13 (15%).
Kenyon Martin now has 3 fouls, along with Stoudemire. Pacers +13 on the boards; 18-8 points in the paint.
The way the Pacers commit some brutal turnovers, the Knicks commit some brutal fouls.
Official just flat-out missed the call. Hibbert had all ball on Anthony.
Paul George 1 of 4 from the line, Pacers 3 of 7 as a team.
As bad as the Nix have looked in 1st half, and it is very, very bad, Pacers not exactly running away.
And Jason Kidd drives in for a sneak-strapping layup ... except he didn't.
And Amare has 3 fouls now. Woodson is keeping him in.
Not a great showing from Stoudemire. Three fouls, one technical in three minutes of work. Woodson keeping him on the floor.
Young and Augustin have 12 of the points in 16-5 run that pushes Indy's lead to 30-19 early in 2Q.
DJ Augustin is having a hell of a series for Indy. Shooting like what many expected when Indy signed him last summer.
As I've been saying all year long, Pacers' bench is a force to be reckoned with. OK, I've been saying farce, but it's just one letter.
Reserves Sam Young and D.J. Augustin knock down back-to-back threes, extending the Pacers' lead to 11.
Stoudemire gets Knicks' 2nd T of the night for shoving Mahinmi after offensive board. That is how one boxes, not how one boxes out.
The Knicks getting use out of all that money they paid Amare. He's got 2 fouls and a tech already in just 2 minutes of playing time.
Amar'e Stoudemire picked up his 2nd foul, then got T'd up. Knicks not managing their emotions well.
Pacers show highlights of their 90s rivalry vs. the Knicks. Reggie shown on the giant video board, receives standing ovation, "REG-GIE!"
Jason Kidd hasn't scored since April 23. His first shot tonight went Vanderjagt.
Pacers end the 1st Q with two buckets at the rim for a 23-16 lead. George and Anthony each have 7pts.
Pacers shoot 52 percent and hold the Knicks to 30 percent and lead 23-16 at end of the first quarter.
Tyson Chandler just called for a tech. Shouldn't he just be happy that he robbed Roy Hibbert for 1st team All Defense?
Kind of a soft T on Chandler for mild shove that sends Hibbert to floor after Augustin layup.
Tyson Chandler has been T'd up for the second consecutive game.
Ahh, J.R., backs into 30-footer instead of driving Hansbrough, then body-checks him for a foul at the other end.
Pacers offense is out of sync. Guys are hesitant, jumping without a place to throw it. Meanwhile, Knicks 3-pt attempts up to 5. 0-for-5.
Shocking, no not really, the Pacers already have 6 turnovers. Game tied 14-14
Pacers with 6 turnovers in first 8 minutes, which explains why Knicks are only down 2 despite 5-18 shooting.
Somewhere Jim O'Brien just yelled, "I thought I told you to jump stop before passing" when Lance jumped in the air and turned the ball over.
Turnovers are eating away at the Pacers. Up to six now. Their 8-pt lead is down to two.
Carmelo Anthony is guarding Lance Stephenson. Something tells me Lance may have some Born Ready in him tonight vs Melo
Pacers need a little less Bruce Arians, a little more Pep Hamilton with their passing game.
Pacers playing like they don't want a repeat of last year in Game 4 vs Miami. They're up 11-3 on the Knicks early.
This is what happens when you start 5 guys that haven't played together: Pacers jump out 11-3 as Knicks start 1-11.
Shumpert hasn't been shy about launching shots up. He's 0-for-4 and the Knicks are 1-of-11. Pacers lead 11-3, 7min 1Q.
Shumpert is out here jacking up jumpers like he doesn't have a knee problem.
The Knicks are tripling Hibbert in the post. Yes, three guys. That's gotta be a first.
Great ball movement leads to a Stephenson 3-pointer, with Anthony defending, on the Pacers' first possession.
Time for the traditional pregame panorama http://t.co/TRsEsuzYMI
Knicks going big from the start — Felton, Shumpert, Anthony, Martin, Chandler. Prigioni out.

Monday, May 13
There are about 1,000 tickets still available for Game 4 on Tuesday
Being around the NY media has been interesting. Many are in search of a bold proclamation, headline material. Pacers haven't given in.
Game 3 in Indy drew 14.2 rating on ABC (No. 1 nationally), the 5th highest-rated NBA playoff on the network in the market. NY's 9.7 was 2nd.
So did J.R. Smith go to Bloomington to meet with noted Pacer-killer Tom Crean today?
Reggie Miller on Spike not getting tix by Pacers bench: "Stewart Reed is my new best friend. If I was on Facebook, I would like him"
David West was baffled at Hibbert not making an all-defensive team. Then he offered, “No comment.”

Knicks had an early practice this AM. Iman Shumpert sat out due to a sore left knee. Smith and Martin absent again due to illness.
Sunday, May 12
J.R Smith and Kenyon Martin both missed today’s practice and stayed behind at the hotel to prevent the illness from spreading.
Just want to take the time to wish all the Mothers out there A Happy Mother's Day Hope Everyone have a Blessed Day
