The New York Knicks and the Indiana Pacers duke it out in a pivotal NBA Game 4 at the Gainbridge Fieldhouse on Sunday afternoon. Here's a New York Knicks vs Indiana Pacers Prediction.

New York Knicks

The New York Knicks will be kicking themselves after falling just short to the Pacers in a crucial 111-106 defeat in Game 3 on Friday. Donte DiVincenzo drained seven 3-pointers to lead the team with 35 points on 12 of 26 shooting, Jalen Brunson added 26 points with six assists while Josh Hart tallied 10 points with 18 rebounds and four assists. As a team, the Knicks shot 47 percent from the field and 14 of 27 from the 3-point line as they overcame a slow start, pouring in 32 points in the third quarter to lead by nine points, only to go cold in the fourth quarter where they managed just 16 points to allow the Pacers off the hook in a dramatic finish.

Indiana Pacers

Meanwhile, the Indiana Pacers needed to respond after dropping the first two games of the series and they were able to get it done when it mattered most to escape with the much-needed win in Game 3. Tyrese Haliburton led the team with 35 points and seven assists on 14 of 26 shooting, Pascal Siakam added 26 points on nine of 14 shooting while Myles Turner chipped in with 21 points, 10 rebounds and three blocks. As a team, the Pacers shot 47 percent from the field and 12 of 32 from the 3-point line as they traded with the Knicks down the stretch, until Andrew Nembhard drained the important 31-foot shot with just 17.1 seconds left on the clock.

New York Knicks vs Indiana Pacers Prediction

The Knicks are still without OG Anunoby, Bojan Bogdanovic and Mitchell Robinson, while the Pacers are still keeping eyes on Aaron Nesmith and Tyrese Haliburton, who are both questionable. This is definitely a game where you want to check the lineups before tipoff given the injury cloud hanging over the Pacers' Haliburton. As it stands, I still think the Knicks are the better team overall, and I think they can at least keep this one close at the end.
