Scorching hot Pacers set playoff mark in Game 7 rout of Knicks

NEW YORK -- There was huge anticipation for Sunday to produce an historic Madison Square Garden game. It absolutely did, just not one anyone could've expected.

Improbably and unexpectedly in a road Game 7 situation, the Indiana Pacers had one of the greatest shooting halves in the 77-year history of the NBA. When the stunned New York Knicks tried to recover with a second half push, the Pacers superstar and their super sub stepped in and delivered the final blows.

The result was a 130-109 Pacers victory, eliminating the Knicks by finishing off four victories in five games after falling behind 2-0 in the series.
