The Knicks, already hobbled by injuries, looked utterly outmatched by a relentless Pacers squad.  This devastating loss ties for the Knicks’ fifth-worst playoff defeat in franchise history, their worst in 12 years. The last time they suffered such humiliation was back in 2012 when the Miami Heat dismantled them by 33 points, holding them to a measly 67 points.

The entire Knicks team couldn't buy a basket, shooting a dismal 7-for-37 from three-point range (18.9%). Meanwhile, the Pacers were raining threes, shooting a scorching 45.
