The New York Knicks, on the other hand, wanted to finish the task and move to the next round. At least that was their intention in the first quarter when they finished ahead of the Indiana Pacers. Then, the Pacers, a young team led by Tyrese Haliburton that plays true to their name, staged a rally to give them a substantial lead at the half.

In later quarters, it was just a matter of playing with the right energy to keep the Knicks at bay. Jalen Brunson and his teammates looked on in the closing minutes as the Pacers won the game, pushing it to a win-or-go-home Game 7.

A situation that will put relentless pressure on both teams. More so for the Knicks, as they will have to battle fatigue and injuries to win this crucial playoff game at home. Their own fans are some of the noisiest in the entire league.

But that should only spur them on and overcome their several adversities. But the Pacers are not as exhausted and have a deeper roster. An exciting situation that is making fans go wild on social media.
