The New York Knicks have been able to sprinkle in wins here and there as of late, and they're in much better form than the Pacers. The Indiana Pacers look like a club that's falling apart, as they've lost four straight games, and they lose on the road by an average of 3.8 points on the season. The Pacers are 6-10-1 against the spread on the road. I've had a hard time figuring out the Pacers this season, but right now they're in rough form. In a near pick em contest, give me the Knicks at home.
