The Knicks couldn't control the Pacers on their home floor, losing 126-106 at Madison Square Garden on Friday night. >> Box score
Things to know about Friday's game
1) The last time Domantis Sabonis came to The Garden, he left with a perfect 12-for-12 line from the field in a monster game. He didn't produce the same rare box score this time around, but he was still the Pacers' leading scorer with 22 points on 9-of-14 from the field. He also made all four foul shot attempts. On top of that, he had a double-double with 15 rebounds and three assists.
2). Despite his quick surge in the second quarter to give the Knicks' a 46-45 lead that didn't last, Tim Hardaway Jr. had a rough game from the field. He went 4-for-11 and 2-for-6 from beyond the arc for a total 12 points. Emmanuel Mudiay was the team's leading scorer with 21 points on 8-of-17 from the field.
3) Rookie Kevin Knox had an efficient game in 27 minutes of work. He had 14 points on 5-of-10 shooting with two rebounds and two assists. Knox continues to look comfortable coming off that hot December month.
4) Victor Oladipo was also a problem for the Knicks, as he had 19 points with six assists, four rebounds, and a steal. Oladipo was a main reason why the Pacers pulled away in the second half and never looked back. He finished a plus-17 on the floor.
5. The Knicks' struggles continue as they've now lost 10 of their last 11 games.
