That was Rodney Stuckey tapping back an offensive rebound over two guys, including taller Lou Armundson
This game is simple to analyze. Knicks can't win without Carmelo, Pacers can't win without George Hill.
Lavoy ‘He’ll Get It’ Allen with two points, four rebounds in < 5mins.
I don't think Roy Hibbert was able to move Quincy Acy an inch on that post up
Lavoy ‘Lil Boy’ Allen in replacing David West, rather than Luis Scola. Pacers trail the Knicks by five, early 2Q.
No Scola to start the second quarter - it's Lavoy Allen as backup 4
14 fouls called tonight so far.
That forced shot by David West was on Ian Mahinmi… he needed to get out of the paint. West took that shot to beat 3 seconds call
CJ Miles must've stretched tonight.
Quincy Acy = if Rick Ross lost 200 pounds.
David West, Facilitator. Finds Rodney Stuckey cutting to the basket for the layup. He's credited with 1 asst but active in moving the ball
Funny moment on the video board: George Hill’s girlfriend and her brother are shown on the kiss cam. Oops.
Carmelo Anthony made that look super easy
Jason Smith whistled for hurling his face at David West's elbow. And, yes, blood resulted.

Also, C.J. Watson has been playing with "pretty significant soreness" on his feet, Vogel said. And will do so for rest of the season.
Vogel said he expects to keep George Hill around his 20-minute restriction tonight & Saturday and "hopefully expand him after that."

Vogel on NYK: "We’re catching a team… that doesn’t have a good overall record but is playing their best basketball of the season right now..
Carmelo will indeed play tonight. Some speculation he would sit since it's the second night of a b2b
Knicks Head Coach Fisher on the scene. http://t.co/52zkVPp7Pt
Plan for George Hill is to keep him to 20 minutes again tonight and Saturday (vs Kings), then they hope to increase his workload.
C.J. Miles (groin) will play tonight in a few different short stretches, per coach Vogel. http://t.co/o9IcJTaIIX
CJ Miles WILL play tonight.
For those not old enough to remember, White was a tremendous high school and college player. Led Purdue to 1999 national title.
Wrote about Ely and his longtime relationship with Perry head coach Mike Armstrong a few years ago. Good man and a good coach.
IMO: Purdue kept it simple last night. Knew IU has real problems guarding the post. Kept feeding it there. Everything else followed.
Holtmann said he's pleased by better balance. “We have great coaches in our league. One of the things they do is take away primary options."
“He has the ability to score with his back to the basket which is kind of a special thing today," Holtmann on Marquette's Luke Fischer.
. . .special players I've ever coached. . .His mind and his competitive spirit in some ways may be his two greatest assets," Holtmann said.
Cont'd: "they'll see me in more than one game. I definitely have bigger aspirations than making the Rising Starts Game."
Holtmann on Roosevelt Jones: "He’s probably the most unique player I’ve ever coached. I've also said he's one of the most. . (1)
Solomon Hill on not making the Rising Stars game: "I have bigger worries out there ... If we can get to the playoffs,"
The Big East is having a coaches teleconference with the media at 11 a.m. EST. I'll tweet along any pertinent news. Holtmann is on at 11:24.
Beautiful mawnin! Today is going to be a good day!
Purdue's W-L record in game following "upsets" of IU is not good. Will be interesting to see how well they play at Northwestern on Saturday.
Free throw shooters falling backward as they release. I'll never understand it.
that was a common foul.
Seeing S. Bardo reminds me: He was bad shooter at Illinois. Troy Lewis used to yell "Yeahhhhh Bardo!" whenever he saw someone brick a shot.
