Best bet on the Tube

Indiana has a second chance to put New York on the ropes. The Pacers blew it once, in Game 2, and they’re not about to let it happen again tonight in Game 4 ( 4 p.m., TNT). If Indiana can replicate the tough defense and dominant rebounding that have been key factors in all of its playoff wins this season, the Pacers could head back to New York with a 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinals. Things seem to be lining up perfectly for the Pacers. They’re one of two unbeaten home teams left in the playoffs and the Knicks are 0-3 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse this season. The Knicks’ Kenyon Martin and J.R. Smith are ill and questionable for Game 4. – AP
