Knicks Beat Pacers to Tie NBA Playoff Series at One Game Each

The New York Knicks beat the Indiana Pacers 105-79 to level their National Basketball Association playoff series at one game apiece.

A Carmelo Anthony layup tied the game a 64-64 with two minutes, 25 seconds to play in the third and triggered a 30-2 scoring run that gave New York control at 92-66 with five minutes left in the fourth quarter. Anthony scored 22 of his 32 points in the second half and also had nine rebounds.

After two meetings at Madison Square Garden in New York, the best-of-seven Eastern Conference series moves to Indianapolis for games on May 11 and 14. The series winner will face the Chicago Bulls or Miami Heat for a place in the NBA Finals. Chicago leads that series 1-0.

Also tonight in the Western Conference, the Oklahoma City Thunder host the Memphis Grizzlies in Game 2 of their second- round series. The Thunder won the opening game.
